First impressions:
Heavy-ish. No postal scale here to weigh it. I might be able to find one at work to weigh it on. The weight is concentrated toward the middle of the tube just to the rear of the turret's perimeter. Feels as if it could put up with a lot of abuse. Think of a slightly longer and beefier Leupold 2.5-8x36 Mark 4 MR/T.
First Fail:
I put the battery in and try the illumination and.....nothing. Remove battery, check polarity and reinstall. Nothing. Check battery with multimeter, 3.252 V. I removed the spring from the battery cap. It did not seem to be seated tightly. I re-seated the spring but I can't see how that might have any effect. I wrapped on the scope housing after putting the cap back on and suddenly noticed the reticle was now lit. I have tried undoing everthing that I had done to that point but the illumination continues to  perform as advertised.
Iluumination:
The illumination is so-so for full daylight use. Night time use will probably require using the low end of the red illumination. The green illumination causes detectable halo at any setting in dark conditions.
Turrets:
I like the feel of the detents. Both have the same light, oily, audible and tactile click. ***Note***If you are someone who picks up an unmounted scope by the elevation turret (hand now raised), the weight of the scope will cause the turret cap to unlock and give you the brief impression that your 700$ scope is about to hit the floor.
Glass & Reticle next time.

I don't know but would not doubt Cook county Illinois recorded a vote by a Mr. Tootaten X. Weaver.
Vote early, vote often.

I have the 3-15x version on a Savage .308 Precision Carbine and am very impressed based on limited range time to date.  So far I have not had a chance to test beyond 200 yards.  It tracks well, the locking turrets are a great feature and the optical quality seems very good.  My points of reference are Leupold Vari-X III's and last generation Nikon Monarchs.  I don't know how the optical quality holds up to current versions of these and similar quality scopes but it seems very good to me my eye.  They are heavier than the competition and I'm not sure if that equates to long term durability.  Prices are very attractive.
