I am in the United States Military, I have been for 13years. I am a Marksmanship Instructor and have multiple combat deployments.  I also compete in Multi Gun Competitions, when given the opportunity.  I wanted to comment on a scope that I just bought from GRSC.inc the Combat Rifle Scope (CRS). I only trained with it for two weeks prior to competing in the Fort Benning 3 Gun Competition and I have to say I am impressed. To be quite honest, to get a better of understanding, I can only compare it to the ACOG 4x32 RCO. I have used the RCO in combat and in competition, but I can only talk about them on the competitive side of the house.  

Hands down the RCO is the most durable optic I have seen, based off of the military grade aluminum housing it is made out of.  The illumination of the sight is based off of the tritium phosphor creating a battery free scope, a plus in low light and no light engagements. The draw backs that I feel are essential to competition is having the fixed sight compared to the variable sight. The units of measure are in meters and not in yards, which we are all aware that we utilize yards at our firing ranges. Lastly the chevron reticle although it is a good for quick target acquisition it is bit too thick firing at longer distances and on occasion interferes with spotting rounds.

Well, as for the durability to the Combat Rifle Scope (CRS) does not match that of the RCO, and the illumination is battery operated. I feel that the horse shoe reticle, the variable scope, as well as the unit of measure in yards gave me a better edge.  The unique horse shoe reticle allows me to be fast and accurate without making me search for my holds (Point of aim point of impact).  It was easier to see where my rounds where hitting with the layout of the reticle. At one stage at Fort Benning 3 Gun, I effectively engaged 6 (12 inch) flasher targets at different ranges, ranging from 200 to 450 yard, only utilizing 10 rounds (one of the fastest time in doing so).  The variable scope gave me the option to choose what power I can use for the different stages.

Over all, I give the Combat Rifle Scope for the price and the above reasons 2 thumbs up. I look forward to competing with this scope again.  You should check this sight out!

Ed Verdugo has been making top knotch slings for many years. His background is Special Op's, or so he told me on the phone once.
I've had a few of his slings and love them. Ed's SWAT sling is on my AR as I type.
 
Koshkin can elaborate on the reticle and possibly the scope itself. IOR is in the mix somehow too, as I recall.

Hmmmm, A "combat" optic that only has a two year limited warranty? Interesting...

I know Ed fairly well and I tested a few different generations of his scopes.  He is now finally able to put his reticle in decent scopes and it took him a long time and a LOT of effort.  I have one of the protypes of a Chinese CRS he tried to make (FFP version of Millett DMS-1) and I really like the reticle.

IOR was briefly in the mix, but that was a long time ago.  The genesis of IOR's CQB reticle was Ed's, but then they parted ways (not on good terms, I think).

Ed is a good guy and his reticle rocks.  We'll see how the scopes are.  I tested one of the first functional Korean CRS prototypes for him and it was a good scope.  Once he has both 1-4x and 1-6x CRS scopes available, I will likely do an article on them.

I like the reticle, have never been enamored of the scopes.  I saw a couple in use in combat areas and the story was mixed.  No great love, no great hate.

Well SVT you didn't read rule 2... it states:
 
2.  No personal attacks.  If you think someone is an idiot, (chances are) everyone else does too.  No need to post it.
 
It is my first time, I didn't know that the GRSC scope was not part of SWFA. Yes, I am a 13 year warrior, but I am human. Thanks Brother, for the lesson.

Sorry about the misunderstanding Oldmancruz. It is a fine line to talk optics, and balance the ones that are competing with SWFA that SWFA doesn't carry. Forgive SVT, he is a good member here. He is technically right with his post. Probably could have worded it a tad less abrasively, but we get too many blatant posts, and sometimes things can get frustrating for us SWFA faithful.

Cyborg,
 
Thank you for your understanding. I am a new member of this sight and this is my first time posting. I posted it to recieve feedback like the one Urimaginaryfrnd posted. I do understand the passion of faithful members. That's why I came to this sight off of a recommendation. 
 
Urimaginaryfrnd,
 
I have not tried out those scopes. However, I would like to do research on them and see if any of my budies have one or knows anyone who does, so that I could sample them. Thanks for the recommendation.

I have the Korean made CRS mounted in a Bobro mount. I must say that the glass is pretty clear and sharp considering it price point. The adjustments are positive and able to deliver when conducting box test/drill. The illuination is a little week though, but that may improve when the 1-6 comes out (and the 1-4 is discontinued). Over all I'm very satisfied with the optic and it will be coming with me on my next deployment.

Now, hopefully Ed will be able to strike up an arrangment with SWFA in the near future. ;)

Any consensus on the Norden 1-6 CRS these days? I like that reticle and the ACSS. They were designed with the M855 , how would they work with other 62 Gr loads like Federal .223 Bonded   or 62 gr Fusion ?
