Well, I'm sorta leery to order your UTG DS3840 now.
This link http://www.gun-tests.com/issues/24_7/
takes you to an archive. Scroll to the bottom and see they gave a top rating to the Tasco BKRD30 ($50).
I searched Amazon and pulled up these scopes, but I can't tell which one the test is referring to, since they all seem to have BKRD30 in their description. Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no...=tasco+BKRD+30
Do you have any idea which one got the top honor from Gun-Tests?? And, do you think they would hold up the an AR 5.56/.223 light recoil?
