    $1400 USD is the retail price I think , its almost in the NF price range , and as such , maybe good or not , Bushy is trying to push into the higher end of scopes , BUT donot have the name for that , I would still like to see something similar from NF , I say this as I got a so called HD 10x42mm monocular , and not impressed with the optics ( very disappointed ) , so if they do the same with there tac scopes , I will pass on them , ( I want them to be a good scope , BUT that does not mean they actually will be ) .

    Why wouldnt you go 3-18x44, 10 mil per turn double turn, second turn indicator, zero stops, size para, 5mil L+R, better reticles and better glass, for under 24oz and available now?

    I still have reservations about the quality , especially after , the 10x42 HD monocular was meant to be good ,
