I agree that it looks that way at first thought. It feels that way after you shell out the cash and wait for it to arrive in the mail. It's seems like buying a brand new pickup just to take it rock crawling.
When it turns out that it's just an overpriced trials bike, that is exactly what it was made to do.
Bounce around for a few years in the tractor, or the HMMMV, make it to the range now and then, make nice accuracy, and maybe one day stop a chance 120gr 7.62x39mm. Great in low light woods, in the dark, and great at close up fast work.
Maybe I'm just making myself feel better about blowing a thousand, on a great optic. I've had enough bad luck with the 80-100dollar special Bushies, and BSAs. This time I got a solid American product, you get what you pay for.
