Well i've got this scope and had a chance to shoot it a bit and rest it out outdoors on the rifle.

I like it, its not best optic out there but for the money it seems pretty solid. its rather large and heavy, which lends to that solid feeling. glass is good, not great, but honestly it amazes me what they are able to provide at this price point, which is right about $100. didnt come with a mount and its a 30 mm tube, so i did have to fork over another $30 for a mount.

its currently sitting atop a 10.5 5.56 pistol build, which seems perfect as far as the 1-4 power, the only thing i dont like about it is how much weight and bulk it adds to the build. but what good is little light rifle that i can shoot accurately? it does have BUIS as well.. it had an rds on it but i wasnt happy with the level of accuracy that provided and the fact that my eyes dont see a nice sharp 2moa dot. the 1-4 reticle is very clear and precise comparatively. I dd some shooting from up close out to about 150 yards and the ability to zoom out to 4x really helps get more precise out at distance.

pictures!

some comparisons:

L-R: monstrum 2-7x32; feyachi 1-4x24; burris ar-332; Holosun 403b

i think this is on like 1.5-2x, its not all the way down on 1x and as you can see there is a little magnificaiton, i included this pic to show how nice of a sight picture you can get with the feyachi falcon. the black ring of the scope body is pretty thin.

these last two pics show how much brighter the feyachi is over the burris.

Looks like it's probably a decent buy at that price point. I'm like you though about weight on a pistol build. So many scopes and mounts totally defeat the light and highly portable aspects of an AR pistol build.

Yeah but just look at RDS photos. Terrible in my opinion. I'm getting to the point where I think I like irons better than rds'. Good irons at least. Comparing all these different styles of optics has really helped me understand the pros and cons of each.

Lpvo: best of all as far as capabilities in varying situations. Heavy and bulky.

Fixed lower power: good all around. Excels 50-2-300. Not great up close or far out. Robust and durable.

Variable higher power scope: great at mid to longer ranges. Not very good close up. Large and heavy. Slower on target.

RDS: best suited for close quarters. Can be used at range but not very precise past 50 yards. Fast on target up close. Hard to identify targets past 50.

Of course most of that is all pretty common sense stuff. As always the best gear is dependent on the use. All of these optics have their strengths and weaknesses.

My plan is such. In going to zero the RDS and lpvo for the ar pistol. Then they can be swapped depending on application. The fixed 3x and 2-7 will be zeroed on my ar rifle.

At this point I feel that gives me a good range of application covered making the best use of the optics in my safe. The 1-4 will stay on the pistol. The rifle is naked right now with just irons. Not sure why but I really like the way it feels. If I had to pick a set up to depend on for my life it would me be s&w mp15 and the Burris 332. I trust both of them the most.
