Looks nice! I kinda like the way they designed the fiber optic bundle shield adjustment thingy.

Will you have a chance to compare it head to head with their most recent 1-4X24?

I believe adjustment thingy, in engineer speak replaced thingahmajig, so that it wouldn't be confused with the gizzmo.

No, it is outstanding in that regard.
I would say it has a very flat image and the tube itself seems to be barely noticeable.
Glass is definitely better than when I have seen before from Trijicon.

The center dot may not be quite as big/bright as the 1-4 though, that's from memory as I don't have one with me.

I put it on my 5.56 for 3 gun but I may actually move it to my 6.8 AR for hunting.
Need to get out and shoot it first.

I'm not sure if the illuminated dots vary by scope model, or if it's by reticle type. My 2.5-10X56 has a Mil Dot reticle that's about .5 MOA. My 3-9X40 has a plex reticle that's about 1 MOA. I prefer the smaller dot, particularly when I use it at night. What reticle did your 1-4 have?

I have had a #4 in the 1-4 and recently sold a 3-9 mildot.

I definitely like the smaller dot and very dim for hunting in low light.
I did some quick testing yesterday evening against my S&B 1.5-6x42.
The Schmidt had better glass and was a bit brighter of course but the little Trijicon compared pretty well frankly.
I was looking at some trees about 200 yards behind my house.
