It is a nice little scope.

What is your application?

It would be for a short 308 hunting rifle.
Ilya, have you looked through one in low-light conditions?

This scope has a very short tube, so make sure it will fit on your rifle.

It is pretty good in low light, although I would have liked a thicker reticle.

The eye relief is very long at 4.5" or so, which is probably more than you need for 308.

For the money, especially with $50 rebate out now, you'd be hard pressed to find a better 4x scope.

Thanks for the info, especially about the eye relief.
The short tube would fit my mount, but the combination of that and the eye relief might be a problem.

I had one for a bit. I liked it just fine. Besides, if Koshkin says it's good, you're golden! Big Grin

I had one and mounted it on my Marlin 336. I had to buy a Leupold rifleman one piece base because it had extra ring slots toward the rear. I had to mount that little sucker as far back as it would go and it was just barely far enough back to use and get a full sight picture. The optics were actually very good being a 32mm but the eye box is VERY CRITICAL. Your eye has to be exactly centered and the EXACT distance from the eyepiece to get a view at all. I didnt like that about it. Also, the adjustment were tiny little ticks that you could barely feel or here but they worked fine if you adjust them and leave them.

VERY CRITICAL EYE RELIEF

VERY SHORT MOUNTING ROOM

SOLID BUILD WITH GOOD OPTICS AND THE RETICLE NEVER WASHED OUT LIKE THE BUSHNELLS AND NIKONS.
