1x Zoom (sorry for the tilt hard to hold rifle and DSLR at same time) 2nd pic is at effective eye relief about 3 inches from the charging handle you've still got a great picture a bit tighter than an Aimpoint comp but still able to use both eyes open to track and aim. The lighting is about 1/3 power.

4x clarity is still amazing.

8x and clarity is crisp, only complaint is that the view is abit tighter you gotta get closer to the scope but that's expected from such a variety of magnifications but still overly impressed.

Sky view next to some Hornady 60gr Tap. Overall weight 10lbs 2 oz. A bit heavy but manageable and not too noticeable, weight is very evenly distributed between muzzle and stock. I will update with a range report once the weather decides to behave. Cheers guys!

That is very good looking. And very impressive with the blue. Strange, the rifle looks green in one pic but FDE in the others. Is that a Condor rifle case? I just got one and got the 42in, and my Fenrir fits but is a bit big. Was afraid at 35" the IC would be a tight fit and I wanted to be able to carry a long bolt gun as well. Other than that, they are well put together pieces of kit.

Probably just a weird capture of light that made it green. Its actually the official LWRC Case. Ill take some day time photos next time we have a sunny day.

It is almost identical to my Condor. But then how many variations for a rifle bag can there be. And at closer look I can tell it is FDE, but definitely has a green tint to it in the first pic with just the mount. Very good looking set up.

Please keep us posted. I was surprised to see that this does not have a parallax adjustment. Seems desirable on an 8x scope. Also, does this offer true 1x performance?

Yes it does. I just played with it again yesterday. They have also released a new reticle for the scope. It is a Horus reticle. I still prefer and am getting the basic mil dot, but they are expanding their offerings. It is a very clear and crisp 1x. Only issue with CQB 1x both eyes open firing is the housing where parallax should be is the brightness adjustment area and it is in the way of your left eye, but still not bad and better than the competition. Not as good as an Aimpoint, but an Aimpoint does not have 8x. This is an awesome scope.
