I bought this scope to pair with my CZ 455 chambered in .22LR. While it was the second scope I purchased, in many ways it was my first “real” scope. Boy did I research it before I got it. At the time the street price was around $550 but found that Camera Land up in Long Island NY, had a unique version that they partnered with Vortex with for around $450. The partnership with Vortex makes them a go to place for any Vortex scope. Later when it was replaced with the 2nd generation version (spring of 2017), Camera Land still was beating everywhere else with an amazing discounted price $299. I was almost tempted to buy a second one! Oh and no I don’t work for, know anyone at or get a kick back from them! lol
