IOR Scopes, your thoughts?

Buy used.  There was a really nice NSX in the private ads lately and used also buys you a decent DMR which are pretty bomb proof.

If it's the one that I'm thinking of, it is a great buy but the reticle puts me off.

Depends if you use holdover or dial.  I use an NSX with an NP1 ret for hunting and the lack of clutter in the ret and easy turret adjustment makes dialling a breeze.  For plinking I can see that maybe using a mil hash or moa hash ret allows easier corrections using the ret.

My use would be plinking and longer range target.

Where did you go in the end @Trigger73? I'm seriously considering the Vulcan currently, as apparently the IOR glass is comparable to Nightforce, if not better. (although I'm not sure if that's true of Vulcan glass as it's the bottom of their range). 

It's between that and the Vortex PST 2, as their both about the same price point. Certainly rather the IOR recital, (not a fan of the full tree lit up).
I'd love to be able to actually look through them both side by side, but I'm not aware of any shops within a hour or so of me (Bristol) that stock them. 

Naturally Vortex has it's no-quibble warranty, but there's a 30 year warranty on the IOR, and we'll all be shooting fancy electronic ballistic scopes by that point anyways.

After a lot of thinking , reading forums, talking to owners, it was not looking good for the IOR as it was hit and miss regarding the quality and if any possible issues IOR are allegedly a nightmare to deal with (wait time), so I bought an absolute mint Pst Gen2 5-25 FFP instead for £680, saving over £300 if I went down the IOR route.

The newer IOR Vulcan does not have the naff paint like finish,it's more the anodised finish the glass is SUPERB German Schott glass I must have dialed mine elevation/ windage thousands of times and it goes back to zero no probs..Yes mine had to go back to Romania for repair (the damage was my fault) it was returned sorted and delivered back free of charge..hope this helps cheers 👍
