I just got a WOTAC in on trade and had a chance to shoot it a few times this past weekend.  Overall its servicable but I don't think the thing tracks true MOA.  I will know more when i get some more trigger time but right now I am holding off judgement until I have more time with it.  One postive about it is the owner of WOTAC stands behind his scopes with a no questions asked warranty.

Hm, I've got that in my shopping cart right now but I might wait. I'd like some more feedback before I decide to buy

I will get a review up next week some time if you want to wait.  All i have done so far is a box test and while it tracked true the adjustments where not true 1/4MOA.  From a center zero and at 100yds I dialed 40 clicks to the right and 40 clicks up.  shot, 80 clicks left and shot, 80 clicks down and shot, 80 clicks back right and shot, then 40 up and 40 left and shot.  I did this several times until i had 5 shots at each corner.  In theory it should be about 10" above and to the side of the center zero, it was only about 8.5" but it did track correctly and return to zero.  All that said I was not expecting a exact 10" difference but 1.5" is to much especially using the gun I was using and knowing that it averages .5MOA or better and the groups where all within that

Cool I'll definitely wait, I've got 525 in credit towards swfa so waiting another week won't be a bad deal

How old is the scope? Ive been doing research and have heard the older ones have the MOA issues but the newer dont
