I can testify that this scope is rugged
I know this post is old, but to anyone who doubts this statement:
I bought this scope for my AR-15. I flew American Airlines with one connection, taking my rifle of course. I put the scope in a separate checked bag, completely surrounded by clothing as padding. TSA went through the bag and left the scope right against the side of the [soft] bag. This means that it took 100% of the baggage handing force from the east coast to Dallas to Tucson.
Didn't shoot it for many months after that, assuming it was a goner. However, when I did go back to shoot it, it was 100% perfect.
Any scope that can survive baggage handling can survive anything.
That being said, the ONLY problem I have with this is that it's impossible to make out holes at 500 yards, though I suspect this is very common.
