Picked up a new scope yesterday

I got a really good deal on one of these:

I like how the reticle extends down to the edge of the scope.  I think I am going to put this on my AR-10.

Vortex is suppose to be one of the better optics makers. Let us know how yours works. I would be especially interested in eye fatigue when using the glass for long hours at a time.

Scope arrived today. Nice little unit. Nice that it comes with a 2x piece. Nice that it comes with an AR mount. Now need to go to the range and test it out. But it looks good, Corn! Thanks.

dang, your postal service must be faster... I hope mine will arrive soon. FYI when you attach the little 2x magnifier, you will lose the unlimited eye relief. I don't ever use my magnifiers for that reason--but you may like yours.

Hmmm. I tried it last night and it seemed to work with the sight mounted just at the front end of the upper. That way you can put the 2X piece on and still raise the rear irons. But it seemed to work OK - at least for what I was messing with. Perhaps the correct answer is that I need to spend some time working with this puppy.
