During the past month I saw 3 big retailers advertize major discounts on certain scope lines such as Nikon, Burris, and Bushnell. 
What is going on? 
Why the big discounts?
Is some new scope technology coming down the pike?
Thanks,
Brian

Not sure about the Nikon or Burris lines, but word on the streets is that Bushnell is taking their 3200 and 4200 lines off the shelves.  There is a thread about that already going on here.

New year and new lines is always a big reason for discounts, too...

Its the time of the year for new products to be released and clear out older inventory.

Out with the old, in with the new. Clearing out the discontinued models I'd say.
