Your eyes age as you do and 40 and up I found a good scope is as important as the gun. You cant beat a Leupold. In my opinion one of the best was the Leupold 2.5x8

Nikon has a great warranty. Send it back. They may send you a new, then sell it. Maybe I'll buy it. 😉
I heard that this is the last year that Nikon will be selling scopes. They are looking to get out of the scope market all together.
If you notice they are on sale everywhere.

I've been looking for a VX-R. With the duplex illuminated reticle. I think those would make an excellent woods scope. Very light and good battery life. I currently have a Trijicon accupoint 1-4x24. Great scope but pricy. The VX-R can be had for about $460.

I've got 2 VXR's, one on my Savage 220 Slug and one on one of my Muzzy's - by far my favorite scopes. I am looking for a 2.5-8 glossy though for a different rifle...

I was looking at getting a VXR recently for one of my rifles, looks like they are being discontinued

I just ordered a 3x9x40 tonight. and a DNZ 30mm mount for the BAR. The 2x7's are all about gone. Will have some explaining to do when my wife sees the bill, but I will just tell her I sold one to make up for it, as always. lol

Yeah, I had a 2x7 in my cart on Amazon from last week. When I saw your post about the discontinuing I checked on it and saw it was out of stock. Maybe other were scrambling to buy the last ones. So..., I went with the 3x9. Nothing but great reviews from guys on here and online. Excited to get it!

Walmart shows they have one 2x7 left, but it is the Matt Fine Dot reticle, although it shows a picture of the Duplex reticle. Didn't want to chance it, as I wanted the Duplex.

maybe, maybe not. I’ve read that Nikon was discontinuing their scope business.
You are correct. Nikon will be getting out of the scope business. Not sure how they are handling warranties.

I should add it’s the 2-7 power, and has the Leopold quick release base and rings. Occasionally I get into a crazy snow or downpour and will take the scope right off and throw it in my fanny pack and go back to the iron sights.
I guess that's one way to do it. I use a waterproofed scope coat and it keeps it dry no matter the weather.

I guess I am just accustomed to using the scope coat. Pulling the coat off and raising the gun is all one motion and I am satisfied with the speed in which it is done.
