I have not tested this scope, but I was very pleasantly surprised with the optical quality of the smaller 3-15x50. If there 5-25x56 is anything like it, it is a good option for the money.

Okay thank you koshkin Ithe ups guy dropped it off just about 1 1/2 hours ago ,I havemounted on a riffle yet because them it becomes mine if I leave scope rings,what I did notice is above my other scopes I have is the huge amount of eye relief at full magnification close go 5.00" I haven't got to dial it in and see how the cheekweld is and fine tune the parallax or focusso I have 15 days nd counting down and I don't want to waste money and have buyer's regret or send back a gem of a scope and lick myself for sending back a great scope.
My biggest nees is I have severe diabetic retinopathy and low light iam literally and legally blind unfortunately o hunt heavily pressured public land and the deer here only come out as the sun is setting and darkness is 10 minutes away.So any input is greatly appreciated

Thanks all in advance

I gave in and mounted it ,I took off my 4x16x42 Diamond back hp and allowed my son's to mount it on his 300 rum and so far I really really like it and the gunsmiths that mounted seemed pretty impressed with it as well.
