I'll bet it's a mad house trying to fill all the orders with the prices that low. Stores in Des Moines haven't a clue that the old models are being replaced so prices are still maxed out here. About August they will be selling them to the uninformed. Just wish I had snagged a fixed 6x42 before they went bye bye. All the more reason they should make a 6x42 Super Sniper.
There is really no down side here you get last years Monarch model at a great price or you get a better power range and side focus and pay a little more for an improved scope.
