Well it is not the PM II I had a wet dream about but here it is.

Leupold M1 57045 Metric 4-14x50 Illuminated Mil-Dot

0.5 cm per click(.18") wind/elv(Super Crisp)

11 setting illuminated laser etched reticle(very bright and clear)

fast focus eyepiece,side focus parallax

Index matched lenses,different coatings(better than the older M1's)

scope perfomed flawlessly in most light conditions(great in low light)

have not shot it at night yet. Exellent reapeatability and target defintion

to 300 meters so far, got great groups at 300 meters. My goal is to see

how well this system will shoot at 1000 meters but I will have to wait until

I get back to Vegas for this. So far I am very pleased with this

new M1 from Leupold.

Thank you Koshkin.

I just got the nightforce finally(slow shipping) and I will be evaluating, mounting,and shooting it

hopefully soon.

 

Hello Mike

I wish it was FFP, Leupold does not make a FFP in 14x.

This is also the only Metric M1 made.
