I wish they would have offered the reticle with mildots with the horseshoe instead of standard BDC. The BTR-2 instead of the BTR-1, FAIL. Scope would have competed there better because the only other decent cheap option is the $425+ Vortex. I'm not expecting much from the scope, I can get the burris 1-4x for $250 and Leatherwood slightly more. The shot show reports indicated this was a lesser scope optically. Large knobs look like they would be easy to turn by mistake, and there is really not a point in having large knobs without turn counters on the dials, does not appear to offer that from the pics. Another FAIL, enough so to say its probably unusable for a go-to carbine.. Without turn counters its not really suitable for precision builds either. The SWFA package price is good, except that mount while nice is really heavy for AR platform.

That guy from OpticsPlanet had a brief preview based on his pre-sale sample:

It looks like one hell of a deal if they can keep the glass as good as it is on the sample.

Suffice it to say, August can't come fast enough.
