Anybody got one, or know much about them? Have read favourable reviews. My dealer is recommending a Vortex Strikefire. Also know that a few guys on here favour the Bushnell TRS 25. Will be going on my Anschutz MSR RX22.
Thanks,
Swamp

I have one-and it works very well- I had a failure of the first one I had, after using it in a torrential rainstorm. It worked intermittently after that. I contacted Lucid and they exchanged it no questions asked- the unit was about 1,5 years old at the time. I bought it after watching this review-

Anschutz MSR RX22- That is pretty fancy isn't it!- HD7 is not a precision optic, maybe a scope would be more appropriate?

Well, I've thought of a scope, but I already have a 17hmr and 22-250 that are extremely accurate. I bought the Anschutz as my first tactical type rifle. I want an optic with either great, or unlimited eye relief, quick target acquisition and follow up shots.

Very nice! Unfortunately, a little pricey for me right now. Thanks for the reply though. Appreciate all recommendations and advice.

Yeah they are a little pricey for me too, but I would love to have one.I could let you try my Lucid if you were at a local range- where do you shoot in Eastern On?

Mostly on my own, or family property. Bout an hour south of Ottawa. You?

Sorry wrong side-Upper Ottawa valley.
The Lucid is a pretty solid unit, I don't have experience with the Vortex or Bushnell, not sure how it stacks up those. I do like the Vortex scope I have. I have heard the TRS is very nice and light unit.

I like mine. So much so that I kept it when I sold my AR.
