That's good to know. Every time I call they're wicked busy, but maybe I'll just stop by periodically, since it's only 20 minutes away.

Now that I'm finished dressing her, and finding a load that she digests well, I think the "I LOVE THIS GUN" thread may be more appropriate.

I am delighted with the scope too. It tracks perfectly.

It is a Sightron Sii Big Sky 6-24X42 that was recommended by a friend that shoots competitively. I got a very good deal on it and, from everything I've read on it, I would have had to spend 4X's as much to get anything as good or better.
It has 1/8' adjustments which is the only thing I would like to see changed; would prefer Mil adjustments since it is a Mil-dot scope.

Man. I picked one of these up a few weeks ago for $350. This is getting ridiculous.

Tell me about it. I had hoped finding a DPMS style Ar10 stripped lower would still be feasible. I haven't found any that aren't triple what they were a few weeks ago.
