Brent S on Sep 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Do you mean sight? Yes, buy you will have to remove four star head (not torx, not hex) screws in order to remove the scope and used the blocked sights. By that time you will be a mall ninja full of holes. Perhaps you should considered off set backup sights. They were invented more than a decade ago.

What calibers is the BDC reticle for? 5.56 and .308? it would help if they showed the span of calibers it would be good for. thanks
Gary two gun on Oct 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: That really depends on you. A lot of it comes down to what we like to call “shooter’s preference.” I know they make specific reticles for certain calibers but if you can zero and make adjustments for distance then the reticle shouldn’t matter too much.
Does it come in left handed ?

Will this work with a .450 bushmaster?
Steven W on Sep 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: That is a lot of magnification for a short range caliber. Especially, if you are hunting in timber. I run a 2-7×35 on mine. The lower magnification allows you to get on deer quickly. You can always turn it up if they are farther out. Even at 4 power in thick brush it is hard to find deer.

Chris Y on Sep 16, 2019

Is this scope and ring mount setup suitable for use with an M1A Scout Squad rifle (.308win)?
S B on Apr 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No, the scout set up uses a scout scope,, different eye relief, a scout scope is more relatable to a pistol scope than a rifle scope.. The difference is that this scope sits right on top of the receiver while the scout scope sits more forward closer to where the reciever and the barrel meet
Is this scope tube nitrogen filled for antifog?
XKX X on Apr 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is I have it on top of my 450 bushmaster ar15. I've had it out in some pretty cold weather and had no issues other than the misting rain. But it is one bell of a scope to handle that 450 bushmaster. Its 250grain moving at2200 fps of pure fury. The scope takes it all and says is that it!

Sam M on Apr 23, 2020

Will this setup be high enough to see over the front site of the peep site? Or do I need a riser.?
seemann on May 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Seemsnn, so most of the time if you have a front site you will not see it through the scope. It seems like it would block your view but because the scope is focusing a long way away from the site it is not seen at all. The cantilever ring mount that comes with this scope is a good one, you could always add a riser later if you wanted but I think it will work as is.
Does this have side Focus and what type radical does it have?
Ray M on Apr 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No Side focus. Reticle isnt mil dot, but has hash Marks to give elevation points. It's good hunting scope for a couple hundred yards. It's not sharp at 300 to 500.

Michael P on Apr 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I can not recall on the scope to be 100% honest but the cantilever ring mount is China made.
Is this scope set for 100 yrd and then use the hash the marks for greater distance?
Bucky on Apr 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You might want to zero your scope at 100 yards or you might want to zero it at 200 yards. It depends the type of rifle and ammo you’ll be using. Vortex has a ballistics chart on their website that will help you determine this. Then you will use the hashmarks to compensate for the drop at further distances

Great scope
This is an awesome scope. I have this on my 6.5 Grendel rifle. My eyes aren't near what they used to be and I can easily shoot sub moa with the ease out to 200 yds.
April 24, 2020
Perfect for my AR 47
For what it is and how much it cost I’m happy because it’s dependable. At this price of course it’s not gonna be as clear and high-quality as my high dollar scopes but I get consistent tight groups using it at 150 yrds . Perfect for my A.R. 47. I would buy this again.

Ok, was disappointed on this Vortex Item
Best I can say is just watch the video review and see for yourself what you think. It's "OK" if you are on a really tight budget but would not be my choice.

Great scope at a great price
Bought this for a 6.5 Grendel budget build. I did not want anything with bells and whistles. This is a great scope for the price and the cantilever mount made it that much easier to install.
