While the optical quality of this 4 x 16 variable power scope are excellent, quality was poor. The scope had the best light gathering of any I have used in 20+ years of hunting. The Illuminated reticle worked fantastic in early morning light, however the scope would not hold a zero and in fact had to be returned to the factory for repairs after one week of hunting. A set screw for the magnification adjustment came out and the entire reticle came loose in the scope. Perhaps I had a lemon, but just beware.
