Marshall came out with what I think will be a winner for the entry level optic market. I got to play with this scope on a friends rifle at last weeks match. The reticle was good and easy to use. The illumination was not daylight visible but the reticle was bold enough that it could be used quickly. Marshall has always sponsored the matches we have hosted up here. He stands behind what he sells. So if your looking for a 1-6 scope in the sub $300 market this one is it.
