Any reviews on this?  I have a 4-14x44 and while it has not seen "hard use" it has performed great on many range sessions and hunting trips.

I might grab one of these if they are well received.  The price is compelling.

How do they stack up with the PST or SS?

thanks

The falcons aren't even in the same hemisphere as the SS 5-20 ... its like comparing a Mustang XL to a Shelby Super Snake....
 
If I was choosing between the PST and SS I would take the SS every time.

sapper-

I realize that, but thats also why they're 1/3 the price point.

I placed an order for the 5.5-25X56 Falcon this morning. It should arrive by Thursday and I will be sure to write a standard unboxing, mounting, and zeroing review. I won't be doing a durability test as this will be the only scope for my rifle. It is supposed to be around 25* frht. this next weekend which will provide a good median temp for the application I will be using this scope for. I have never written a review on optics before but have owned and used around 10 different scopes in this price range and believe I have a good grasp on what a $500 scope should be, so, take it for what it is worth.

The non illuminated model, the illuminated model was on backorder from swfa and from the falcon website it looks to be discontinued.
