Hi-Lux doesn’t believe a true military grade tactical scope should be prohibitively expensive. Using the real world experience of Special Operations combat veterans, competition shooters and sportsman we developed our 1-4x24mm CMR (Close Medium Range). This highly flexible design offers great speed up close yet precision at longer distances. With a magnification range starting at 1x it allows a rifleman to keep both eyes open, like a red dot sight, during tactical situations or when hunting dangerous game. Increasing the magnification to 4x allows distant targets to be identified, ranged and engaged.
This combination of capabilities makes for a far more flexible and useful optic than competing red dot sights, fixed power scopes or larger and heavier designs. Built on a compact yet robust 30mm tube, the CMR doesn’t add unnecessary bulk or weight to your rifle. Due to this the CMR is the perfect match for tactical and hunting rifles. High quality fully multi-coated lenses are utilized to provide a clear and sharp image. Use in low light conditions hasn’t been overlooked and light transmission is the best in its class.
Other features include tough, wear resistant Perma-Coat soft luster blue-black finish, lenses polished to photographic quality, “Tri-Center” coil springs for positive windage and elevation adjustment, and a Fast Focus large diameter ocular lens. The Hi-Lux CMR scope offers exceptional performance at a shockingly affordable price.CMR1 Manual [download]

Originally mounted on a metric fal. Abused this cmr on that system. Now demoted to my AR. It survived the fal and still runs tops on the AR. The holdover are comprehensive, easy to acquire and well thought out. Windage at distance markers are ingenious. Best part when switching from 7.62 nato to 5.56 nato my holdover are close enough to hit 18inch steal at distances. Then at close range being second focal plane when you zoom out that 1moa at 4x dot becomes 1/4moa dot and bright enough to really get on target fast. And the illuminated outer ring under rapid fire is perfectly sized for getting that plate within the circle for contact. So nice being able to switch platform and not need to relearn the reticle. Becomes second nature fast once you understand the different accumens
This was one of the first sub $1000 dollar low powered optics that came with a BDC to come out. I purchased one when they first came out and its been going non-stop ever since. Mine has 2 or 3 layers of spray paint and cerakote on it, and has served me well for thousands of rounds through an AR. I don't baby my guns, although I don't torture them either, but this scope has reliably held zero from sub zero temps to over 100 degree weather. The glass quality is sufficient to do the job of a 4 power scope, and the illumination does its job in low light settings. For what it's worth, the green illumination on mine is daylight visible, but not intense like a red dot. I find the horseshoe to be a much better aiming device than a dot anyways, just frame the shoulders and let her eat. At 1x I have no issue engaging at CQB distances with both eyes open using the horseshoe. The reticle is fine enough to consistently shoot sub MOA groups with, including consistent 1/2 MOA groups at 300 yards, magazine mono-podded no less. The turrets are good, nice clicks and the zero stop works very well. The markings always line up nicely after zeroing. The zoom ring is stiff, but not unusable at all. Some may prefer to use a cat tail, I haven't yet though.
