I was looking at this scope last night, looks nice well made are they worth the $699.99 or should you save your money?

It doesn't have daytime illumination and it's heavy.

Take a look at the IOR 1.1-4x or the IOR M2 4x for a more cost effective alternative, just as high quality glasswork, durability, and better reticles. Leupold does awesome work, but I think IOR does that type of scope better.

Works fine for me. I had it on my Bushmaster V-Match 16" for a while. No reason not to go with it if that's what you want.

Right now it's on my Beretta Cx4 Storm. Probably overkill for that, but I have an IOR M2 on my BM right now that I'm waiting to play with.

The CQ/T is a great scope. Ask SinistralRifleman... he uses it quite a bit from what I've read and I'd take his word over a lot of people around here that shit talk the scope but have probably only finger fucked it at a gunshow.

Mine was illuminated. I don't have it anymore. I think it had 2 NV settings and 10 or so daytime settings.

It was a good quality scope. The 1-3X magnification works well for shorter ranges. I was able to shoot pretty accurately with it.

I got rid of mine because it was heavy and a bit awkard. I had it mounted on an A2 at the time. The cheek weld was kinda high. I have since switched most of my ARs over to flat tops. I think it would "fit" better on the flattop.

I think you could do better than $699 if you keep an eye out on the EE for one. I think I bought mine for about $550 or 600 like new and sold it for $500 when I got tired of it.

I spent a lot of time comparing the different scopes on the market and came to the conclusion that the best two were the Leupold CQ/T and the Trijicon TA-21. When it came time to spend the money I went with the CQ/T. Both are good but I liked the CQ/T retical style a little better and I liked the fact that it's a little shorter overall.

Some on the forum knock it's weight but I don't find it that heavy. Also you must consider that one does not need to add the weight of a mount since it's built into the base of the CQ/T.

My rifle is a RR upper and lower with a 16" stainless barrel, Larue 9" forend, Magpul M93b & MIAD. I will be posting pictures of it when it's done.
