I have been keeping an eye on these scopes for another rifle build that I am planning.  I have noticed something recently and that is that they are showing up allot in classifieds on user forums for hundreds off.  I saw one for $650.  Any idea why this is happenning?

There are a few sellers with steep discounts on them, so that price isn't crazy low.

And people swap scopes very frequently, it happens all along the spectrum.

They average around $1000 on sites like swfa and their compeditors.  On one of the hunting forums I go to have had 3 in the last week and probably at least 6 in the last month listed in their classifieds which seemed unusual.  I didn't know if maybe the reticle or something made it less desirable for hunting.

I am not aware of any great issue with them.

I just got one, mine has CA - which I don’t love - and the eye box at 15X is very tight. It has yet to be on the range. 

I am undecided on it.

I guess other people are finding things they don’t love and deciding to let someone else have a crack at it.

Or maybe something else entirely.

Some people really like this scope, some don't.  The only one I've had hands on was just OK to me and I did not purchase.  Mechanicals did not seem as crisp as advertised, glass was good, but "edgy", I liked the reticle.  I did not shoot with it.
