I was just wondering if anyone here has had any experience with A1 Optics lighted crosshair scopes? I see them on E-Bay and they actually compare themselves with the likes of many higher end name brands. I prefer Leoupold & Zeiss on my rifles but always lose money when selling or trading up, it's seems like most buyers don't take into account the cost of the optic when buying a used rifle. All my "keepers" have either Leoupold's or Zeiss with the exception of my .257 Weatherby that has a Swarovski 3x12. I have never heard of these A1 Optic scopes before but I must admit that the concept of the lighted crosshair seems like a good idea for early/late day (low light) deer hunting. They have a pretty impressive side by side comparison photo of their scope and a "regular" scope as they put it. If it truly does what they say, for the price that they charge, it would certainly be worth the little cost. I have ordered one for a Remington 597 .22Mag that was an absolute tack driver at 150 yards with a basic Redfield 3x7 scope that was damaged by my ill placement of it while retrieving other rifles out of my truck (I leaned it up against a picnic table and knocked it over accidentially with another rifle) the scope took a direct hit against a concrete sidewalk and it is now a loss. While searching for reviews of these A1 Optics scopes all I could find is folks like myself that were asking if anyone has tried them or not. No real answers. If you have tried one or know someone that has, I'd really like to hear about it, if not and you're curious about them then I'll be posting my very own "review" about the 3x12 illuminated model in a week or two.
