Came across this March 2.5-25x42 scope w/MTR-1 reticle.  SFP with MOA adjustments.  Original owner purchased it in May 2012 and has less than 500 rounds (308 and 7WSM).

Police Officer that is selling it wants to upgrade to a March scope with illumination.  Only issue is the scratches on the lens.  Asking price is $1675, which seems high when I can get a new one for $1835 plus shipping.

Assuming I can get the price down is the scratch something to be worried about?  I shot a number of scopes with scratches on the lens and wasn't noticeable when I was behind the scope.

It would have to be a REALLY good price deal, for me…  Compromised coatings are not the end of the world, but definitely lowers value.  There may be times you notice.

Buy new! There are no savings on the used one.

Where I landed.  More I looked at the photo, the lower the price went on what I would be willing to pay.
