This is an amazing scope for both medium rang and long range.
I recently got this scope and I mounted it on my M14. The 2x zoom lets me use this scope in the closer fire fights and the 3-5x allows me to use it as a sniper rifle. The 7x zoom is a bit much for the range on my M14 so I use it to do recon and to watch other people's hand signals.
The scope is almost a foot long so it will look funny on a gun that doesn't have a very long barrel, like the P90 and an MP5, but it looks good on just about everything else, like the SOCOM M14 and SCAR. It looks the best on a revolver with a rail though I don't see many people looking for scopes for their revolver.
I use this scope in CQB as well as anywhere else on the field. Most people would prefer a red dot, but I prefer the 2x zoom (since I'm color blind and I can't see the red dot most of the time). As awkward as it may sound to use a scope in CQB, it really does work as long as you don't press the gun into your shoulder when you aim. A shorter scope would be better but its not like you can't do it. Play how you play.
The rings are a bit taller than expected but it works out great for how I aim. Everything is solid and it feels better than the ones you can find at walmart for $150. Adjusting it is easy and takes some practice but it you have friends helping you, it will be easy.
I recommend this scope for anyone with a rifle who doesn't mind a long scope. I don't recommend this for anyone with an AEG that is only for CQB since you will most likely want a shorter one. I give this scope a 5/5 because of the stability, the usefulness, and the practicality that it brings me out on the field.
