    Hi! Chet, I see your not getting any response!  this is a new model and I guess no one has one yet!! I have two Mueller scopes and have had no issues with them, they are both the 8-32×50 variables , one with target cross hairs and one with mill dots. One is on a .220 swift varmint rifle and the other is on a PCP bench gun.  I can recommend them for there clarity and repeat ability and find them a very good scope for the price point!  Hope this helps!  J.L.

    I have two 8-32 target dot scopes used for BR .  These are a phenomenal value for this price.  You would have to pay a lot more money for a scope to equal their performance.   I’M  sure the 40X fixed power scope would satisfy all but the most picky competitor.

    I am very interested in this scope also but I hope it’s image is bright not dim like most high powered scopes.
    I would buy it but don’t want more disappointment. If anyone buys this scope please let me know what you think about it.

I  doubt that a scope of this magnification would be used on such a short range.

    ​Field target shooters use big scopes even at the 10 yard targets.

    So has anyone tried this scope yet?  I'm debating between this and a Weaver T36.  I like that the Mueller has a 30mm tube and 56mm bell-that should give a pretty bright image.  I don't know about the turrets and tracking though-areas I know the Weaver has made a name for itself.

    Yes, I had this scope on my .177 RAW TM1000 that I just sold today. I had a Weaver T series 36×40 prior to that. As far as I could tell, and shooting a few 25M BR matches with both scopes, they are pretty much equivalent in Quality. Both have clear glass and good target dot reticle. Both have 1/8 MOA turrets with solid repeatable clicks.  The Mueller is a brighter scope due to the much larger objective (56mm vs 40mm), the Weaver seems dim when compared next to the Mueller.  Oh, and the Mueller is half the price of the Weaver, plus its a 30mm tube versus a 1" tube on the Weaver.  If you're not going to shell out the cash for a Sightron, you might as well save yourself a couple hundred $$$ and go with the Mueller.  Oh, and the Mueller came with flip up lens covers, a bikini style lens cover, sun shade, and a large side wheel.  FYI, the Weaver does come with two sets of turret knobs, screw on lens covers, and a sun shade…

    Thanks for the experience and information Mike-I appreciate it.

    After more searching the internet, I did come across another thread, from a different forum, sharing experiences with the scope.  I'm not sure if this is 'allowed', 'bad form' or otherwise, but here is the link to the thread, since there is not much feedback on this scope.
