I’ll start off with saying that Blackhound could easily charge over double the price for this optic and get away with it. The packaging is phenomenal and it’s great that they include a mount (not QD in any way, but it’s well built and engraved with Blackhound which to me shows attention to details), scope caps, 2 levels, battery, wrenches, battery removal tool, stickers, and easy to understand instructions. The optic itself is rather large, as are most 1-8s, however the construction quality is suburb. Clarity is great with both glass and the etched reticle which is easy to aquire on 1x (true 1x) and is clear at 8x and allows for more accurate shots and range estimations. As far as illumination goes, you can use it in daylight and is visible, but be aware that it’s not extremely bright in daylight. All in all, I would confidently say that this optic is on par with some of the major names and would even say that it’s better than some of them, but for the price, it’s absolutely unbeatable. Rest assured, you can’t go wrong with getting this optic.

First off the shipping time was next day early. This 1×8 is as good as my NF and Zeiss and better than my Trijicon all of which were 3 to 5 times the cost. I placed this on an AR10 in 308 and and the scope and mount are rock solid. This reticule is as good or better than any I own or have used in a LPVO scope. I really liked that it isnt too fine at 1X and not too heavy at 8X. The illuminated reticule works even on a bright day and the locking function is a nice feature. When these come back in stock My trijicon and PA are being replaced on my match guns and those two were more than $1300 each. The furnished mount is on par with the Leupold AR one piece mount that goes for $90. With Quality and price considered this scope is at the top of the 1X8 LPVO scopes. This may be my first Blackhound scope but it will certainly not be my last. All my big bore AR’s are going to get one of these on top.

This scope is priced correctly. I would not say it hits above its price point though. The illumination is no where near daylight bright and the glass is ok. The eye box is a little tight. I was hoping the elevation turret would be more tactile and not quite as stiff, the windage turret feels better than the elevation on the one I received. I hunt yotes at night so light gathering is important to me. I compared the glass to my Leupold patrol 3×9 (450$ optic) and it has half the light gathering at any power. I have compared this optic to my trijicon accupoint 2.5×10, vortex razor lht 3×15, leupold mark ar 1×4, zeiss v4 6×24, Gen II razor 4.5×27, weaver tactical 3×15/4×20 and ALL have better glass. In day light the glass is good and I do like the reticle. The mount is a very nice addition and it is solid. I read the reviews here and got excited with people saying the glass is as good as NF and Zeiss. IT is NOT. Its a budget optic that is at a good price point for people who can not afford 1000$ and up for an optic. This would be a Awesome optic for the price if the illumination was daylight useable and the turrets were more positive and tactile (only going off of the 1 I have). Yes it is a good optic at the price point but note that you are getting a 400$ optic. This was my first 1×8 optic so I didnt want to jump right in and purchase a 2k optic. I will be saving for a higher end 1×8 or 1×10 either NF of Vortex because the concept of the LPVO is great. For 400$ its a good starter LPVO
