Looks like a very convenient scope. Any knowledge on quality of scope and rangefinder? Anyone used one? Seems like it would be a good buy if you consider buying the two units separately.

I have one... have used it on several different rifles.  Right now it is on my Remington Etronx .220 Swift where it will probably stay.  Have fired it with the Nikon Laser IRT out to 300yds holding right at 1/4 MOA.  (1/4 in at 100, 3/8in at 200, slightly under 3/4in at 300, 5 round groups from a bench rest) Have fired three rounds at 500, under 1/2MOA from prone position.  I like it.  Get used to the reticle and it is pretty easy to shoot with.  I spent some time shooting 30-06 before I put it on the Remington, so I had a good feel for the reticle.  Then had to "train" myself for the BDC for the .220Swift.  I have measured the laser to under +- 1yd at 500yds.   Some think it heavy or bulky.  I don't mind.  Personal choice.  Glass is Monarch quality.  Good resolution in low light.  It was a worthwhile purchase for me.  Dependable so far...
It didn't really look good on the 30-06 WinMod70, looked OK on Browning Stalker 7mmMag, and I think it looks really good on the Rem700(Sendero) Etronx. 
For someone looking for this type of scope, it is recommendable.

So I just bought my first AR and now trying to figure out what I want on it as far as glass goes. I have a nikon range finder already but dont use it much.
 
So my real question is how many people have or are using this and are you willing to provide feedback becasue I am really thinking about putting this on top of the AR.

Getting a scope and a rangefinder in one package sounds handy and killing two birds with one stone,
but then you would have to mount and point a weapon to take a reading.
I personally have a separate RF, however if a guy wanted to combine it with something, I would pair it with binoculars instead of a riflescope.
Two of my friends have the Leica Geovids and they are fantastic, but I would like to give the Bushnell Fusions a try, being more budget friendly.

Mine is holding up just fine.  However, Burris has an upgraded model out, the Eliminator.  You might give it some consideration.  I am considering trading my Nikon for an Eliminator.

Did I see that at your place? I've always wanted to give one of them a go.

Yes, you did... I don't think you ranged anything with it, though.  I showed you the button on the side and the remote strapped to the stock and commented I thought they needed to come up with a better remote mounting system.
