I have the old Bausch & Lomb Elite 4000 4-16x50 and have been nothing but impressed with this scope. It is now going on a good 13 years old being on my STW the whole time. Everyone has been talking about the Vortex's so much understandably but I dont understand this huge holdup on getting them out. It is borderline rediculous. SO maybe it is time to take a look at some options and this scope is looking very good to me. Anyone have one and what is your opinion on it? I am looking for a high power FFP Illuminated scope that wont make my kids go hungry for 5 years.
