There's nothing wrong with a $600 or less optic as long as I'm happy with the value and feel like I'm getting more than what I paid for. That's how I feel about the Mark AR line. I use the 1.5-4x on my "service rifle," and have the 3-9x on two different bolt guns (.223 and .17hmr). A friend has the Steiner 1-4x $100 more than the Trijicon, but is a much better scope, more than $100 better. I would have initially purchased the Steiner had it been a mil-dot reticle as opposed to BDC.

Civic and Corolla are great cars for the money, you can get a Mazda 3 or Nissan Versa for about the same, but they suck compared to Toyota and Honda. It's not about comparing a Ferrari to a Civic, it's about the Accupower sucking in its field of direct competition.

At every price point there are winners and losers, at $600 the Accupower is a loser.
