    Well I got my first IOR scope at my local shop. I paid 529.99(after state tax). It's a 2.5-10x42 FFP with illuminated reticle and all I have to say about it is is WOW! I have been using Nikon since I stated getting into the long range game and I didn't think I was missing much. I didn't think spending 1K+ on a scope would make that big of a difference but now unfortunately I want to put them on all my guns. Now I just have to wait about 6-8 weeks for my XP-100R to be done gun)

    They do make some good glass I have a 4-14x50 on loan from a friend right now. I think it cost around 1k but I dont know as its just a loner. I have used it on 3 diffrent rifles to date and its has tracked 100%.

    I think the 4-14 ffp or the 3-18 ffp will be my next one

    Well it is a 2002 production year. It was at my local shop here in Michigan. It has ring marks and some light scratches but for the price...

    When the XP comes in and you get the scope mounted...shoot us some pics and range reports. Enjoy.

    I'll probably start a thread of before and after pics, as far as I can tell it will be the first to use AI Mags

    I'm glad you like them "WOW" as per your quote.
    They have nice glasses, and I REALY REALY LIKE TO HAVE THEIR GLASSES IN MY NSX Scopes.
    I oned one IOR 16x42 MP-8 for 1 year, but I sold it to finance my 8-32x56 NSX scope for my new project.

    make sure you got the warranty card with the scope, just to be covered.
    As per my understending 1 year ago the warranty was just for the original owner. If you have problem you have to contact the onwer and send the scope through him to CUSTOMER SERVICE department for repairs.

    I didn't get the warranty card but I have talked to Scott at liberty optics and he explained the warranty.

    If you got it from Scott you will be fine. Just enjoy the clarity of the scope. You got a really good scope.

    I didn't get it from him but I've talked to him about it. I had quite a few questions about warranty and features of the scope since this was my first IOR.
