Scope for M1A Scout Squad

Hi all
This is my first post, so please don't tear me a new one ;) I recently purchased a Leatherwood Hi-Lux LER27X32 scope for my M1A Scout. I haven't been able to find any posts about people using this with the M1A Scout, and I'm curious if anyone has experience with this optic.

I run a YouTube Channel, and I just uploaded a video about the optic if anyone is not familiar with it:

Let me know what you think guys. It would be great to get some input.

Great video. Looking to add a Scout rifle to my collection and have been looking at various ler scopes. Good info. Thanks.

Has anyone else received one of these yet? After seeing this video, it makes me want to try one instead of my Leupold 2.5 power scout scope. I did a quick search and found them for sale at Natchez Shooter's Supply for $115. At that price, I think it's worth a shot.

I appreciate the heads up on this scope. I have a Ruger Scout rifle that is ready for an optic. I thought about putting a traditional scope on it for a bit, but I would have to remove the rear sight in order to do so. That made me decide on a red dot or scout scope for her. I have been comparing several different companies, but hadn't seen the Leatherwood. I like how it is a 2-7X variable. Let us know how she shoots on you M1A Scout NBK. I definitely am interested in seeing your results!

its a 2-7x intermediate eye relief? Scounds awesome. Im running a 2-7x vortex viper with a bassett mount and I really like it. I think the 2-7 range is great for the scout.

I have the Burris 2-7X32 LER scope and I would be curious as to how well the leather wood one compares. A few questions:
How much does it weigh?
Where is it made?
Is there a POI change when shifting from 2 to 7 magnification?

Very nice video NoBuzz.

I watched a couple of your other videos and you do a very good job editing them and such. I take it you worked in the audio/video/computer field at some point?
