anyone have much experience with these?
considering one for mainly night time hog hunting (and some coyote/varmint)
thinking the 3-9 for the bigger objective over the 1.25-4 and thus (I think) brighter scope
I might even step up to the 2.5-10 for the 56mm objective if it is really that much brighter

I use a red led setup and most shots are close enough that 2-3 power is plenty but I like the idea of being able to dial up the power when hunting an open area

............I have used them which are on OPR (other people`s rifles). They are very fast to the target and great for low lite and night hunt`n.
 
I originally wanted the 1.25x4 Accu-Point for my 375 Ruger and would have one. But the mounting tube length wasn`t quite long enough because of its objective bell. I dislike the looks of offsetting rings over any portion of the action. The 3x9 Trijicon was too big with nothing offered by Trijicon in-between the two.
 
For fast aiming and acquisition, they are an excellent scope! Get the amber...

I've used them.  Own the 1.25-4X and like it very much.  As Squeezer noted, the tube on this particular model is short, but I love the reticle and the optics are quite good.  I plan to get the 3-9X40 version in the future.

thanks
are you looking at the standard triangle reticle or one of the new ones?

the 1.25-4 is probably enough magnification I just question how bright the 24mm objective will be, say considering it against the 3-9, both set at 3x

I understand about exit pupil size, the formula and what the human can see

I have checked out a buddies Kahles CL3-10x50, and at night it's just freaking awesome!

I just bought a 1.25x4 and it is very,very clear. Looks like it has no glass at all! You will not believe how well you can see thru this scope at night! The recticle is awsome, your eye is attracted to it naturally. The post with triangle is going to take some time to get acustom to (getting over crosshairs) but all in all it is a very good scope.

Unless you just WANT the higher magnification/larger objective, the 1.25-4x24 provides better exit pupil (more than your eye can use, except at highest powers) and better field of view. For your STATED purpose, the 1.25-4x24 would be my personal choice. You sound like you really want the bigger objective, but you are going to trade acquisition with no real gain, unless you are shooting at excessive ranges.
