This scope is heavier than I expected but appears well made. It has held zero so far after two weeks of casual shooting. My only complaints are the original button cells for the laser were dead on arrival. Of course that was a size I didn't have on hand so I had to make a trip into town before I could use it. When opening the box upon receipt, I thought the lens had shattered due to all the \"glass inch in the box. It wasn't glass. One of the desiccant pouches had ruptured spilling it's contents in the box. Some of the crystals are stuck in the front lens trim ring and I haven't been able to get them out. They don't affect the sight picture so it's no problem. I am happy with it and think it is a great value for an occasional use scope.
