i found this scope which i thought was priced well after looking around for a while at millett scopes but was wondering if i should go with it or one of the vortex crossfire scopes on closeout???? possibly a mueller or straight 16 swfa or other options. gun will be savage 17hmr or maybe a ar15.... also price would be anythin up to 300. just thought if this would b good for the money?

Re: deal or no deal on this scope? millett

I have the mildot version. Its clear, and bright, repeatable adjustments, no major issues so far. Eye relief is a bit short but works fine on a .308, the parallex makes binding noises but works, "clicks" are accurate but inconsistent audibly and tactily so you have to pay attention, its large and heavy. I paid more than twice that price and don't regret it, I also don't expect it to last forever.

Re: deal or no deal on this scope? millett

I bought a Vortex Crossfire on sale from SWFA. It is bright and clear, also gathers light well for its price point. That said the reticule is kind of thick compared to the Millet. Also the Millet is just a shade darker IMO. You can not go wrong with Vortex CS I had to send back a PST and they sent me a new one within a week.
Well that's my $.02
