There were some issues with Premier's first gen of scopes but they have fixed those issues. Some guys have only used GEN 1 so their feedback will be based accordingly. As far as the the tool-less lever lock system, some guys didn't always set it up right. We discovered this so much after talking to guys we decided to do a video on it (see below). If you take the time to learn how to set it correctly, it isn't much of a problem. Other guys just prefer the simple hex screw system. Either way, the Premier 3-15x and 5-25x have some of the best turrets and give you some of the best optical performance on the market today. Add to that the GEN 2 XR reticle and you have a quality scope.
