Who knows, I'm sure it has to do with the quantity made, 50mm being more popular than 44mm so it brings the cost down.

The prices on our site reflect many that have been marked down because they have been discontinued, so if you see prices that don't make sense that is probably the reason why.

That makes sense, I was speculating earlier in my reply.

Which ones are they?  They dropped most of the odd reticle types like #4 and ZRF.  They are not dropping 50mm scopes just certain reticles.

Chris,
Why would they drop a great/fast reticle like the #4?

Probably because the masses don't buy #4, they buy plex.

Is the #4 more difficult  to manufacture than the Plex reticle?
