Only 4 stars because I couldn't figure out how to lock the focus adjustment. This scope is not going on an AK varmint caliber rifle, but a .44 Magnum barrel on a H&R Handi Rifle. I hope the focus adjustment holds.
These scopes are high quality and work very well as far as clear view and holding zero etc. This is the second one I have bought over the years. One for a SKS and this last one for an old Stevens 22 bolt action.I don't know how NC Star can sell at this price with lens caps and quality.
I bought this for my SKS and sighted it in. I've only ran 30 rounds with this scope and it does what it should. It's great for the price. I have no issues with it except the lens covers aren't very good. The straps are too long and don't hold very tight. I will be getting different covers, but the scope seems good so far.
