Title says it all. Anybody know why? Is it the whole line or certain models?

Like many other manufacturers Vortex is evolving.  They are not discontinuing the entire line.
 
Although we are offering some excellent closeout prices on them right now.

After speaking with Vortex regarding some of the concerns I have read, Vortex addressed with this statement.

The SKUs we are dropping are due only to low sales performance and/or too much redundancy within a certain lineup.  
 
All discontinued SKUs function properly and are in perfect working condition.  As for warrantee concerns...that will not change.
 
We are only dropping certain reticles in certain lines so parts to repair the scopes will still be available.  As we introduce new products we have to evaluate the existing line and determine what we can do to keep our SKU # at a manageable level.
 
If we do not do this than there are just too many styles to manage effectively. We are doing this to give us the best opportunity to focus on more popular products so we can better serve the demands of the Vortex Nation.
