I'm very ambivalent about my 3-10x40 Signature Select.  It's a mixed bag of likes and dislikes.
 
  I don't like that the ocular lens assembly is also the power ring - it's very tight and difficult to grasp and turn, especially with gloves.  I also don't like the seemingly cheap features of the scope, including the use of similarly-marked, instead of dedicated, adjustment knobs for both the windage and elevation; that the objective lens is held in place with something that looks more like a toilet bowl wax ring than the aluminum fitting on other scopes; and that the interior of the scope is very 'visible' when sighting through it.  I can see various screws and other components not readily visible in my other scopes.  Also, its adjustments, when made, seem to take a shot or two to set, which is the most troubling feature.
 
However, as bothered as these make me, I can't help but be impressed with its optics.  When compared to my Leupold Vari-X III 2.5-8 and Elite 4200 3-9, it seems much brighter and a bit sharper.  I also really like the dot reticle.
 
Just curious about everyone else's thoughts and experiences.
