4-14 X56 Gen 2 Gov. 7.56

I have a chance to pick one up for about nothing. Does anyone have any experience with the quality of the glass.? What would you compare it to?

With all due respect, if you are getting it for "almost nothing", it's a fair deal. The glass isn't great, the reticles were not well designed and the levels were often not level.

They made them for a few years then canned the whole thing, they have a well deserved bad reputation. Keep in mind, they were $800 scopes (if I recall) and weren't worth it. For almost nothing, how can you go wrong; if it fails, toss it, you wasted almost nothing.

That's still $100.00 too much.  See if you can beat him down to $200.00 with some sad luck story.  Then, if it's like the other Springfield scopes, you can try a Carlos Hathcock on it.
