I have a VXIII 3.5-10x40 with custom shop M1 turrets currently. I have the opportunity to 'upgrade' to an IOR 2.5-10x42 FFP with lit MP8 reticle and mil adjustments for a reasonable price.

Is it worth doing? Am I going to see a noticable improvement? Is the IOR really as fugly as it looks in the pictures? I have no opportunity to look through the scope before I buy, no experience with IOR, and am concerned about warrantee backup if it fails.

The magnification etc are suitable for my purposes.

IOR have very nice glass but I'm not a fan of a FFP scope in a 10x and under. It really will be a personal opinion and in my opinion. The nice thing will be that you are getting a MIL RET. with MIL turrets.
