I might have acted too quick. Thats not the model I was thinking of. I'll have to get back to you on this.
Others may be for familiar with that scope.

As long as the scope is almost new it is a good buy. You can buy them NIB for about $130.00 (CND)so you can use that as a guide to determine if it is a good buy for you. It is not that bad of a scope though. Thumbs up

I don't know what it cost when I got it about 15yrs ago, but I have that same scope on my 270 and have had pretty good luck with it Thumbs up

It probably cost more then than it does now. My father swears by his trophy but I went the Leupold road 20 years ago and have not looked back.

Caper40:
If you present scope is the same size objective lens(40mm), you will not have to get new rings. You may not have to anyway.
If you want to, take rifle and new scope up my way your next trip. We can mount and boresight and I believe the Range is Lyons Brook is still operational.
Let me know if I can be of help.
