Not positive but I think they discontinued those last year however they were decent scopes. The Black Diamond line has always been some of Burris most solid scopes.  I have had several of Burris products that had issues but I would be quite confident that a Black Diamond scope would be a dam fine scope. The Euro Diamond was not much below them.

The Euro Diamond were basically just the lower powered version of the Black Diamond. I had a 1.5-6x42 and it is an outstanding piece of glass, especially in low light. The biggest issue I and most people have with them is the rotating eyepiece (no power ring) and they are really heavy. If you don't have to carry your rifle all day though they would be a good choice.

Looks like a nice scope --- the weight is a deal killer though.

I have a 1.5-6x40 with the 3P#4 reticle. The glass is very good for what I paid on sale at SWFA. The scope is going on my .260 M7 because of the reticle. I don't consider the weight to be a problem on this model.

I picked up a Euro Diamond 3-12x50 with #4 illuminated reticle, right around 350 when on clearance here.  Wish I would have bought more, like the optics and features very much.  This type of illuminated reticle is not for day use, only in dim conditions will it light up, if that bothers you at all.  Sounds somewhat silly, but some people like to see the dot all the time.
 
Agree with the rotating eyepiece, somewhat of a pain, but not a deal breaker.  Think at 350 was a bargain.
