Is the lowest setting adjustment level of this scope truly zero magnification like an Aimpoint is?

Also, is this scope worth the price tag on it?

Thanks for your help.

Welcome to The OT.
Never saw one, but I did see some chatter on about them.

Actual magnification is 1.0 to 2.9.  I'm not a big fan of anything with a 14 mm objective. What I do like is the Aimpoint Comp M4  red dot scope and the Trijicon ACOG scopes which have new models ranging from 1.5x to powers as high as 6x but designed to maximize light transmission. Note a 3x scope needs at least a 21mm objective to give a 7mm exit eye pupil. The CQT has a 4.8mm exit eye pupil at 2.9x. In spite of the fact that I do not personally like this scope I have heard operators using this scope in actual combat that do like this scope.  The common consensus is that the EOTech is the fastest to come on target for CQB but it is hampered by the fact that is does use up batteries. One AA battery in an Aimpoint Comp M4 will last you a whole deployment and then some. I think if you need 3x you very likely need more than 3x probably in the 6x range. See the IOR 6x42 tactical a 6x will come on target fairly fast and will very likely give you an advantage on anything out past 200 yds. Inside 200 yds you are better off with an Aimpoint or EOTech. The FFP scopes are a thing of beauty also:

no comment on ior, but the leo is one of the first commercial attempts to produce a scope for fast heads up shooting, if speed is a concern you should go to a 3 gun match and see what the winners are using. the zeiss dot and the 1x4 nightforce are better choices.
