I've heard that those ATNs lack ruggedness.
You will definitely want a first focal plane scope for any sort of tactical/combat applications. Make sure it is MOA/MOA or MIL/MIL, no combination of the two that you may senselessly find on some scopes. I suggest a 50mm or 56mm objective lens. 12x magnification is enough to get you to 1000m, but higher magnification will allow you to better gauge mirage, bullet tracing, etc. You will also pay for higher magnification of the same quality. At high magnification, it is paramount to have high quality glass, otherwise you will simply be magnifying artifacts and distortions. I can provide more suggestions if you would like, but I hope this guides you in the right direction.
