This is a brand new scope that has been sitting in the box for a few months now. It has never been used on a rifle. It has been removed from packaging, but never mounted. If you are not familiar with this scope, it is made specifically for SWFA in Japan. It gets very good reviews all over the internet and has been used by the US military. Here is a link to their website: SWFA SS 10x42 Tactical 30mm Riflescope Included is the original box, manual, Butler creek flip up caps, and a extra 2.25 inch shade made for the scope. I payed $299 for it, but I am asking $245 shipped. I prefer paypal, but I will also take money orders. PM me if you have any questions. Thanks for looking!
