    I don't like the LPV scopes with 34+ mm tubes with 5.56mm platform rifles. With 7.62mm, its a different animal. With the smaller cartridge, the thick tubes scopes add a lot of mass over the rail which is high above your hand. The ZP8 exists in an odd space as it only has a 24mm objective, which is off putting for how big the tube is. It's not a bad product, it just misses a few big marks for me. The Swaro Z8i with the BRT-i makes much more sense for 5.56mm rifles to me. The illumination is painful bright when needed. Despite being longer due to the what is more or less a built in sun shade, it feels like a much smaller scope.

    But I guess that is a different discussion

    The 4x ACOG gets a lot of crap for the short eye relief, but given the intended application it isn't horrible. The field of view through a 4x ACOG is nothing short of epic.
