"For the money it's a good quality replica. This one features the obelisk-style reticle like the real version of the Susat, but the center of the obelisk reticle is semi-transparent so it doesn't cut into my field of view nearly as much as I had expected. Zeroing was a bit confusing, and you need both a flat head screwdriver and a 12mm wrench to do it. Also, there are two hex screws that hold the scope to the mount which were loose enough to let the scope move a bit side to side. These tightened easily and the scope has been rock solid since. The worst part, and why I docked it one star, is that I needed to file some of the rail clamp in order for the scope to not slide on my ICS L85. Not a huge deal with a dremmel, but kind of a pain. One other knock against it is that the illumination seems a bit bright to me, and even on the lowest setting the whole field of view has a red glow making it hard to see anything in the dark.

Pros:
Solid build, (once the screws are tightened)
Clear optics, especially for the price
Obelisk reticle, with clear(ish) center beam, faithful to the real one
Maintains zero from what I can tell
Completes the look of my L85

Cons:
Needed to file the rail to securely fit the ICS L85
Zeroing is non-intuitive and requires a wrench
Screws/bolts for zeroing strip easily
When illuminated, the whole field of view is red.
