just got it in and think it's going to be a stellar little scope

while I haven't got a chance to take it out in low light (tonight) the image appears very, very sharp and clear across the glass all the way to the edges
reticle (4a) is nice
illuminated dot while not as bright as an Eotech, etc.. is visible in full light
it's small and so it's not nearly as pronounced, it is visible

as for the 1.25x on the low end, it sure seems 1x to me, or so close I don't care

can't wait to get it out and shooting

Glad you like it.  It is a very nice little scope and the glass quality is exceptional for this price range.

As for 1.25x, it is indeed 1.25x (at least on my scope, since I measured it), but for the purposes of aiming with both eyes, most people are not bothered by that in the slightest.

it may indeed have a tiny bit of magnification but it's very subtle
it may not do for a professional (LE or Military) but for the average weekend warrior interested in a low power variable if certainly fills the bill and is very reasonably priced

be cool if they did a 2-7 in the same price range

There will be a 1-6.5x scope in the Elite 6500 line in a year or so.  While a bit more expensive, it should be a very nice piece.
