I have the gen 2 you mention (I love it!) and my shooting buddy has the gen1 you mention. While the gen 2 is the better scope, I wouldn't think the upgrade would be worth the cost. Turrets have a better feel, I like the zero stop and the glass is alittle better. You are getting one or two bells and whistles, but itll cost a lot. The gen 1 doesn't add much capability, only convenience.IDoes anyone have any practical hands-on experience with the new GEN 2? Currently own the Gen 1 and was wondering if the the Gen 2 is worth upgrading to?
My only complaint is from zoom range 20-is to 25, the glass gets cloudier than I was expecting. From 5-20 it's very clear as I was expecting.
