    I saw it in their 08 catalog, as a special item, but never saw it on their website...

    I want to try one out though.

    Hmm. Wasn't looking in the LE section. Still. No one carries it or is out of stock.

    Bud's Guns at least used to carry them at about $475 or so...

    Don't I wish you could still get them for that.

    Going rate seems to be 630 or so now. Still a smoking deal.

    What's good glass with LER?

    Leupold Scout Scope, 2.75x with duplex reticle, something like 6"-9" of eye relief.

    Or the Burris Scout Scope, about 2.5X with similar eye relief, and I think it can be had in Plex (duplex), Heavy Plex (thicker lines), and maybe Ballistic Plex reticles. I think the Burris is a little less expensive.

    Raf, on ARFcom (yes, I know, but he's a good guy), has a pretty good amount of info on Scout scopes and such.

    At first glance, it looks like the Leupy is 2.5 and the Burris, 2.75. I'm kind of leaning toward the Leupy, the $ difference is ~40ish.

    Apparently I'm stuck at ~3X, yeah?

    yeah. More than that and you might as well just go to a conventional scope, since it'll get kinda weird to keep both eyes open while sighting.

    At least, I think that's the general theory.
