On the famous T-Bone/SWFA scale, where does the Millett DMS-1 fall out?

I don't know that the DMS would follow the list.  The list if for Millett's other tactical scopes, not this one (I think, since it predates the DMS.)

I own the DMS and am not impressed with the glass - halos around the edges, not real clear.  I do like the reticule and I like the basic design.  Depending on mounting needs, I'd look at the Bushnell too.
