From what I have read, this is not a Scout scope candidate, because it is not an extended eye relief scope. The specs show that eye relief is 3.5"
I personally have been eyeing the TRS-1 series from Millet.
All preference aside, I do think that Millet is a very high quality manufacturer, and their prices are very fair for that quality. You could rate NCStar as a 1, and Nikon or US Optics as a 10. Millet would rate at an 8 in my book. I think this optic would be very fine for a mid-range cartridge. AK, AR, or just another Mouse Gun....This would be a good choice.
See if you can find one in a local gun shop to fondle and peer through. Walk out on the sidewalk and sight it down the block to see what it will and will not do before you buy.
BTW: Shop Shooting Supplies | Reloading | Gunsmithing | Hunting gear — MidwayUSA has these scopes for $239.00 -$10 from what you identified I think...
