I hadnt notice that till you mentioned it.... In all seriousness I do appreciate that you guys chimed in. I used his thread to accomplish what I wanted. Ive had a couple IOR recon (not the LOW G2) and really like them. I had one go bad. But Ive had other quality gear go bad too. CS was good so Im a happy customer. (I am from canada though so different dealer) Im currently shopping for another optic. The new IOR was on my list. I have a Minox LR I kinda like it Ive played with the USO not bad Minox ZP5 I like it. But i dont know anyone with a ZCO or TT that i can look at and thats a expensive buy to try. Most of the IOR threads on here go to shit fast and I understand why. You guys gave your experience not just yada yada. IOR is not on the list now.Also, as I said in my original post, the OP’s pattern of posts here recently which led to his recent discovery of the perfect scope to fit his bill is a bit too suspicious to me. Call me cynical, but hey, I’ve been wrong before. Also, in that price range, it’s ridiculous to buy a scope with such a terrible reputation when there are so many fantastic options unless you’re just one of those folks that absolutely has to go against the grain. Either way, it’s your/his money, do with it what you will. I just feel bad for the poor honest suckers that get roped in to one of those.
