    Depends on which one. I've read good things about their DMS tactical scope.

    As for the 56mm Millet scope I was playing around with at Academy Sports (not sure which one - maybe Buck Gold series), I didn't like. I thought it was rather gimmicky. The objective was too big for the light that was passing through the 30mm tube. Part of the image wasn't making it through resulting in a mushy field stop.

    What about ZOS optics? I've read some really good reviews on some like the 8-32x50 and some bad reviews on the others.

    I own the TRS-1. For the money it is a vey good scope!!! I did have an 08' model which had some issues with the illumination ring being loose. (no biggie as it was seldom used). I replaced it with the new 09' model. Some improvements Millett made were slimming the diameter of the zoom ring (the older models had slight clearance issues with the bolt on some rifles), they replaced the three set screws with one central screw (the new one won't back-out on you either!) and they added 'come-up' marks on elevation and windage knobs. Further they changed adjustment from 1/8" to the more standard 1/4". The optical clarity is very good for the money. I would say pick one up depending on your ranges. If your shooting medium-close distances it's a great scope. If your shooting 800-1000 yards, it's not for you. You need to spend at least 4x that amount. I've also never had a 'zero' issue after several 100 rounds down range.

    I believe Mel wrote a really detailed review on a Millet scope. Check it out. It had some good pros and cons in there if I remember right. Plenty of information to make an educated decision.
