Does anyone have any information on the millett tactical scopes being offered? I am interested in the 6X14X50 with the luminated crosshairs.  I dont know a lot about Millett, and I don't want a POS.

I have the Millet 1-4x24 DMS Tactical mounted to a Sig 556 rifle. I have been very happy with it, the glass is clear and no problems holding zero. I do not have any experience with the 6-14x50 that I can offer.

Hello
 
I do not know about a 6 x14 50mm as I design the scopes for Millett.  We do have 6x25 56 and we have 4x12 50mm.  go to www. millettsights.com and there will be all the info on the scopes there.  Thanks for the interest in our scopes.

On another forum the Millett scopes were a popular choice for a person on a tight budget. Weaver has the Classic Extreme with Illuminated dot which is a nice tactical scope with the #4 German reticle.

Anyone care to offer a comparison between the weaver CE 1.5-4.5x24 and the Millet scope.  I'd be very interested.

Thank you for all your feedback. I went ahead and took the plunge and bought 2 of these. Here is my impressions. The first thing you will notice is that it is large optic device. Al least three or four inches longer then a Burris Fulfield II. It has a 30 mm tube. Be aware you will probably need medium or high rings for the objective lens to clear the barrel. I plan on mounting this on a Tikka T3 varmint in .223 and a FN SPR in .308. You probably wont mount this on a AR-platform unless it is a DMR with a 20 inch barrel and quad rail. It's a lot of scope..The target Knobs are easy to adjust and have locking rings to prevent accidental movement A nice touch. The focus knob is on the left hand side of the scope and is about 2 inches + in diameter. I read a review on sniper central that complained of the focus Knob being rather stiff. I don't have that problem. The knob isn't incredibly easy to move, however you don't have to man handle the knob to turn it either. About right in my opinion. The glass is clear and bright on all magnification and because the cross hair is on a different focal plane it's size remains constant regardless of magnification. i would rate the clairity of the glass on par with, or better then the Burris Fulfield II, Nikon Prostaff and Redfield tracker all of which I own and have compared side to side. I put the battery in and have used the luminated crosshair. It is bright and crisp glowing a neon alien green with 10 power level settings. Mil dots are all bright and crisp. The downside to this is that in the instruction manual You are warned that on bright power settings in darkness a target directly in front of you may see the cross hairs. Use of the sunshade (supplied) and a anti reflection device (Not supplied) is recommended. for tactical combat use. The magnification ring is large and easy to turn with a distinct click at 10 power which is nominal for use of the mil dot function. The scope itself comes in a very nice box with a felt booty/sock with the millett logo protecting the scope from scratches Battery allen wrench, glass cleaner, and 3 inch sunshade. Warranty is limited lifetime however millett is not specific and simply states if you have any problems with the scope or are not satisfied for any reason to contact them. A phone number is supplied. I have little doubt they will make good on your purchase. The box claims Millett to be a american company however the box says made in china. A sign of the times I guess. I can say that my first impression is that they have very good quality control. I will know better when I have had a chance to mount and sight in the scope. Be aware I bought these from SWFA for 279.00 out the door + shipping. They are hard to get so if your interested you need to jump on it. Mine have been on backorder since late January and I just got them yesterday.
 I'll let you know when I know more.
Bove.

Hello all
 
Bove;
 
thanks for a great review, very accurate coverage of the TRS scope.  
 
The downside to this is that in the instruction manual You are warned that on bright power settings in darkness a target directly in front of you may see the cross hairs.
 
 
This is the case will all illuminated reticles, its possible the light will give away your position from the front without some method of anti-reflection used.   For most shooters its no problem but for tactical officers and military it could be and I felt it was worth a note on it.
 
Thanks again for the coverage.
