I used to have the AR-536, which is the 5x version of that optic, otherwise same/same. It was a pretty decent optic for what it was, and at that price point. But in the end, I gritted my teeth, clenched my butt, and sprung for a 4x32 Trijicon ACOG. I’ve never regretted it. My motivation was twofold: the first being that the ACOG is just plain rugged and combat proven....they’re built like a tank; and the second being that I didn’t want to be dependent on a battery for the illumination of the reticle. The ACOG has both a tritium element and a fiberoptic element. In fact, in bright sunlight, the reticle almost too bright. I learned from a marine friend to put a piece of electrical tape over the fiberoptic element, and then I can vary the light exposure reaching the reticle by changing the position of the tape.
But, the buy in is steep, and so people are not often willing to spend that kind of money on a scope for their first AR.
