Their is nothing wrong with this scope other than the minor flecking of the paint on the mirror box which is easily remedied, and other minor cosmetic things. The views are astounding.
Additional Pics on request, serious inquires only, If you are looking to upgrade, this is your scope.
$3400 FIRM, pickup only. I am located 10 miles from Los Angeles. This price is a substantial savings from the cost of the components new, and it of course is already built. The scope can likely fit into a wagon, certainly an SUV or van.
