The folks over at CVLIFE provided me one of their scopes to review, and I have to say that I’m impressed. With it’s 2.5 – 10x range, and a laser sight to boot, this CVLIFE scope delivers. The optics are clear and the adjustable green or red illuminated cross hairs are great for lining up your target.
Mounted on my Weaver handle mount, the scope was right at home. The biggest issue with this scope is the eye relief. Due to this, you’re going to want to use this on a firearm with low recoil, or you may find this scope smacking you right in the eye. For the AR, this is perfect, though it would be more at home on a rifle with a shorter stock than my fixed length one I currently have on my rifle.
The laser can be turned on and off easily with the press of a button. Indoors it works great, but on a bright day, it can be hard to locate at 50 yards. I found adjusting it to be spot on takes a little patience, but once you get it set, it is fairly accurate and hold it’s place fairly well.
Zeroing in the optics at 50 yards was pretty quick and it held zero for the 100 or so round I tested it out with. I was only able to use it up to 100 yards for this test run, but the accuracy was great.
For a budget scope, this one delivers. Not only does this scope come with lens caps, but also everything you need to mount it to your rails, and batteries as well. Time will tell how well this one holds up, but based on my first impressions, I would definitely consider another one of these as a future purchase.
