Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would reccomend This scope is a great entry to mid level scope. I have had zero issues with this scope, though the reason I couldnt give it five stars is due to the BDC limiting you on the distance you can shoot. I max out at ~500 yards. Though i new this when buying so I guess it should be a five star rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would Definitely Purchase Another I purchased this after researching the Redfield Revolution and the Leupold Rifleman. This scope served me well for the time I had it. I eventually gave it to my father for his first hunting rig. It's served him well since then. The glass is extremely clear, reticle is very clean and it's lightweight. I haven't purchased another diamondback in this model but I did get the 4-12x40 with AO and love it on my Ruger 10/22. I think I will get another diamondback or diamondback hp in the future unless I go the Viper route. Either way, you can't go wrong! Great scope at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from diamondback scope for a diamondback AR-15 I have only been using this scope for about 3 months but i love it. When i take it off my AR-15 to put my red dot on and then reinstall it its is always dead on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding value and performance! I have 2 of these, both sitting on AR-15's. Paired with custom ballistic drop turrets from Kenton Industries. The glass is much better than anything else at this price point. Good eye relief. Both hold zero perfectly. Definitely what I'd purchase again if I needed quality in the < $200 price range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great on a tikka t3 I purchased this scope with alot of caution I've always been a Leupold guy but after reading hours worth of reviews I decided I would give one a try and I don't regret it at all I believe there better than my 3x more expensive leupolds. I've currently got it sitting on top of a tikka t3 hunter chambered in a 30-06 and at 200 yards I can get .75 inch groups which I could never get before thank you vortex for such a great product at a reasonable price

It says the eye relief is only .14 inches .. Is this correct. If it is I bet there are a lot of cut eyebrows.
