FOM of 1881 is very good to excellent. At 64lp, that’s a 29.4 S/N.

Ya dun gewd.

Not a steal, but a solid deal. You’re going to like it. Zero MOA POI shift, but just be sure your rail is aligned perfectly. This is why I’m a big fan of the LMT MRP line of true monolithic uppers. No seam to introduce alignment issues.

EuroOptic still has them in stock here - a few different options based on FOM:

They are great scopes, I liked mine a lot. They are stupid simple to use and seem to be built like a brick shit house. A FOM of 1881 is very good. I definitely wouldn't pay $4700 for one, but that doesn't necessarily mean it was a bad deal.

ETA: Also, check the boresight ASAP when you get it. One of mine had to go back for collimation as the sheet said 0.25 MOA but two different rifles and a laser beam said ~3 MOA low. It was covered under the one year warranty but I have no idea what it would've cost me if it was outside of that.

Curious if anyone has heard or has personal experience with how well the PVS30 mates up when mounted to a Badger EFR? Planning on picking one up to run on my FN SPR.

Just perfect - that's kinda what it's made for. I had a local gunsmith install the EFR on my Manners and we made sure everything lined up fine with the particular scope I was using. Ended up having to mount it almost all the way to the front of the stock to make sure there was enough clearance for a S&B 3-20. The newer EOTech VUDUs are pretty cool how short they are for the money, would be perfect with a clip-on.

That’s what I was hoping for. I’m gonna be putting a Vortex Razor HD Gen II 4.5-27 and I had read where inletting the EFR may be required depending on contour of the barrel. I had assumed the EFR would be mounted as forward of the stock as possible.
