Time to let this one roam free from the gun room. I had this on my prairie dog rifle, a 23lb 22-250, for a year and a half. Has/still does function flawlessly. Not a single scratch on the scope, nor any signs of ring marks (was mounted in Burris Signature rings).
Everything that came with the scope when new is included, with the exception of the rear flip-up "Nikon" brand cap, which I lost. Three sets of different style turrets, caps, lens cloth, sunshade, manual, and a small packet of anti fog wipes. The pictures say it all, scope is like new. Lenses are scratch free, tracking is spot on. The only thing worth mentioning is the screwdriver nicks on top of one of the screws that hold the caps down, shown in the last picture. Any questions, feel free to ask.
