    I would get the fixed power Elcan. The 1-4 I believe still has POA issues for the 3rd gen models.

    the price that raytheon asks for elcans one would think they would at least not have poi issues and come with a mount that was even slightly better than you find on airsoft guns fom china...

    just my opinion.

    People pay a lot of money for a lot things. Supposedly up through the Gen 3 Elcan's there is a slight differential shift between POA vs POI switching from 1x to 4x. It's been discussed on a couple of boards.

    Vortex Viper 2.5-10 in a bobro mount. Dead in 200 rounds or so. Reticle started rotating clockwise.

    NF 4-16 ATACR in an AD mount, dead in less than 200 rounds. Focusing lense came lose.

    Both companies fixed their product and returned them to me.

    Trijicon ACOG 3.5 TA11E - thousands of rounds in a bobro mount, zero problems.

    I figured Night Force would be SCAR 17 rated, I guess not. That's where I'm at now, picking optics.

    Eh, it has been fine for the subsequent 3 to 5 hundred rounds. Likely just wasn't put together perfectly. I do love my ACOG though.

    In the neighborhood of 4-500rds with an ACOG TA11E as well, nothing but smiles over here.

    I wish they made them with the LED version like the 4x. The TA11's have better eye relief as well.

    But it says HAMR on it in giant white letters. Leupold are good people, had an HK91 rattle one of their mil dot 2.5-x10x scopes apart and they fixed it for free. The scope was probably a decade old.
