I mis-understood the context in which ordie was using the word "zero", sorry my fault.
However, I told my buddy to bring his scope to work so I could see it. It's a 6.5-25x50, and I was highly impressed with the optics. I'd put it up there with the VariX-3 leupolds. The Mag ring is smooth as well as the AO ring. The AO ring goes from 12yds to infinity. He says it hold's zero, no problem and its mounted on a 30-06. He gave $291 to get it to his door from midway. I think he got his money's worth, The optics are as bright and clear as all of the $400 and $500 scopes I've looked through.
