Anyone have any experience or thoughts on this scope?  It would be used on a AR flat top for short range plinking, target and home defence.

Sounds like a bargain - which is part of what worries me. I have has several types of optics on AR-15 guns and the most satisfactory so far is a 1.5x TA442 Trijicon, second most satisfactory was an Aimpoint Comp M4. Any aimpoint would be preferable because they do not require a set ckeekweld,  I have had a 4moa aimpoint on an AR but really prefer a 2moa aimpoint.

This type will mount with two 30mm rings.  I understand the lure of adjustable scopes with up to 4x but having a red dot that will co witness with buis is a safety check that sights are on target.

This scope has gotten some decent press and is in the same price range as the Trophy.

This scope is pretty new, so I doubt anyone has seen it yet.

It looks similar to Millett's DMS-1, and since Bushnell has recently acquired Millett, I would not be surprised if these two are related.

These scopes had somewhat mixed reports in the beginning, but I was under an impression that most of the kinks have been worked out.

Still, personally, I would probably consider upgrading to Bushnell Elite 4200 1.25-4x24.  I have both and it is an appreciably better scope, in my opinion.

If you are trying to stay under $200, Weaver V3 is a tried and true choice.
