I was looking at this scope and wanted to see if anyone has had luck with this scope. Thanks for your replies.

This is from their website:

One of the most desired parameters for a tactical scope is the Apparent Field of View (Magnification X FOV in degrees) for fast target acquisition and tracking of moving targets. Taking the AFV concept further than Trijicon ACOG (3.5x7=24.5) and Elcan (3.5x8=28) the ATN 4x12 SWATS has an AFV of 4x12=48(!).

Apparent FOV is not bullshit, but a standard measurement usually given in a optic spec sheet.
IF you don't like that, then look instead at the FOV in degrees, this thing is said to have a 12 (!!!) degree FOV, like holy crap! THAT's HUGE! I would suspect though that in order to boost it that large that their is noticeable barrel/pin cushion distortion towards the outer edges of the image...

Note the eyerelief, only 2 inches, that's were they came up with some of the FOV, but still it's HUGE!
Also note how much the dang thing weighs! Makes an ELCAN look light and handy.....

Thank you for correcting. my completely mistaken assumption about the Apparent FOV. I'll delete that immediately.

I did notice the weight! That would definitely make for a tippy weapon if mounted on the carry handle.

Optics is one of the most confusing thing. Trying to find the right one without overpaying is tough.
