Do you really think $1200 without illumination? $664 for lighted reticle? The low pro windage is a big change in product offering, and would be considered an upgrade item.
Illumination is coming soon. The low pro parallax may be a unique item soon, so if anyone is interested they should pick one up.
Leupold charges about $400 for the illumination feature so I'll give it to you on that. I still wouldn't mind giving $1464 for a G7, but there's no way that I am giving $1864 for a downsized NXS 5.5-22. I say downsized mainly b/c of no illumination. Granted I'll probably never use illumination, but it's there if needed. The low pro windage and paralax, though it would be nice, is a wash since it makes no difference to me. However for the drop turret the plus goes to you guys.
Now don't get me wrong I think you have a great product and would love to have one, but for the same money I think I'd have to go with a NXS. When you guys go illuminated will the price be the same or will it be higher? I am also curious as to what your reticle will look like. Do you have any pics? Are you guys going to the Wanenmacher's Tulsa gun show this April? If so were will you be? I would love to stop and visit with you guys.
On a side note, there's an issue with either your G7 website or your email. I've tried to send you guys some questions, but it never goes through.
