For the most part, yes. Is it as bright as an Aimpoint, not really, but still visible. I guess it may not have seemed as bright as it really is using a red targer tho. So far its been a great optic, especially for the price. I really like the fact that its a little shorter then the XTR and it also has shorter eye relief so a regular SPR mount works well.

Not visable in the brightness of the Arizona sun.  The only 1-4 scopes that are be the Dhort Dot, and the MeOpta K Dot.

I know you didn't forget the Trijicon TR24 for a reason since it burns like Zeus's bolt!

I disagree. The reticle still looks red to me, even in bright daylight. It does not glow, as another poster above me said, but it is clearly red. A really light background will cause some of the brightness to be lost, but it is still red enough to distinguish easily.















In direct afternoon sunlight, light background:



















In shadow, same background:

Great pics. I'm really liking mine. Its the first scope that I haven't thought about trading 2 weeks after I got it

thank you for the pics so far, keep em coming.


I am looking to put this on a 308 AR, you guys see any potential problems with that?

my options right now in this $ range seem to be, millet, this one, Burris XTR (quite a bit more), not sure what else.

In this price range, this is the best IMO. The Millet has had very mixed reviews. The glass seems to be not so great, fungus issues, even one case where the scoped rifle fell over off some sand bags onto the bench (a few inches?) and the rear objective almost broke off. Its also made in China so take it for what you will. This one was made in the Phillipines if i remember right. Glass is great, seems solid as hell, great reticule and to top it off is FDE(almost). The XTR is almost twice the price so if I was spending that much I would just go ahead and get the TR24 personally.

do you know the sub-tensions on distance between each of the dots? I am assuming they are for holdovers.

I'd like some more info on this as well. I know it is set up for 5.56/.223, but I am not sure what each dot represents. If I had to guess if would be center at 100 yds (duh), next one down 300 yds, etc. There was no reticle specific information included with the scope, but maybe someone can dig up something on the Burris website?
 
ETA: This is the AR332 reticle, so it's probably set up the same for the TAC30.

The Swarovski Z6i is also day light visible in the brightest sunlight. Even took it to Texas for the Larue Three gun match and had no wash out.

The Elcan Spectar is also daylight visible. (aimpoint bright)
As another poster stated the Tr24 and TR21 work fine in the sun light as well. You need to get some more exposure to optics.

Maybe I missed it somewhere, is the reticle black with illumination off ? Any pics without illumination ?

Judging by your picture this new Burris is every bit as bright as your Z6. Any pics of it in the daylight?

If the new Burris is that birght I may put one on my next build.  But, I feel very comfortable with my MeOpta/

I will have to take some pics this summer when the sum comes out again lol. But actually the Swarovski never washes out. Not sure if the Burris is the same.
