These are good little scopes for the money but you will need extended or a 1 piece base for mounting as there is not much room between the turrett housing and the objective bell. I had the 2-7x26 and I wish I would have never sold it. The Ballistic Plex reticle matches up verry well with a 150gr bullet in the 7mag and there is plenty of eye relief. IMO better glass than the pro-staff.
I think the above are on backorder but you are getting a $300.00 scope for about half price if you are willing to wait for it. For $169.00 I doubt there is anything out there that even comes close. Vortex has a lifetime no questions asked waranty. They also have people on these boards to answer questions. I have 2 Crossfire, 1 Diamondback, and a Viper because of thier reputation and quality. If my wife would let me I would order 2 or 3 of these things...
