    3-12x40 AR Optics Riflescope (Drop Zone-223 BDC) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Value Nice scope for the money. I couldn't tell you the difference between this scope and a $ scope. Easy to sight in and holds once set. It's bigger than I expectedand is heavy but that ddoesn't bother me at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for SPR builds! This is a great scope for SPR AR builds. At any focal range, the sight picture is crisp and clear. The reticle is nice and sharp and the BDC reticle is accurate when at its maximum focal range of 12x. At 3x, closer range shooting is very good with a wider sight picture to aid in target acquisition. Pros to this scope's design is the 1/4 MOA turret adjustments for precise shooting. The turrets are also resettable to zero with the provided hex wrench. The parallax adjustment is great when shooting longer distances. Cons to this scope would be its weight. However, on an SPR build, it shouldn't be too much of a problem. The provided lens covers are clunky, installing flip covers is a great remedy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the price First use was sighting in near dusk. Target image was sharp and clear, nearly as good as my Leupold. BDC seems accurate at 200 yards (max at the range I go to). May want to use high rings, maybe with a forward offset like the ones Nikon offers, if mounting on an AR. Long eye relief. Holding zero very well so far. It comes from B&H in a nice box from Bushnell, and not in the clamshell that you see on @. Read the manual and you can't go wrong.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value This scope is great for the price. Clear bright optics and the turret click values were spot on when I sighted it in at the range. Nice addition to my AR.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Drop zone Great and inexpensive scope! Looks great on my ar15! Shooting with a 3inch moa at 100 yards transforms my ar15 to a great hog hunting rifle!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from get something else You get what you pay for. I have about a dozen rifles. I usually buy Leupold and as a second choice Nikon. Both are excellent scopes. I decided to be cheap & got a Bushnell. It will not adjust point of aim with any consistency.Worthless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will recommend this scope from B&H to my range buddies !!! I have a number of spare scopes but I just purchased a AR15 was looking for a scope just made for .223 and 5.56 nato. I found it at B&H at a good price.
