That sounds almost like a "too good to be true" deal.  Less than half price if memory serves... I once considered one for an AR.  Didn't get it and don't remember why not, but everything looked good on it as I recall.  Discontinued, now, I believe.
Not sure what warranty would be since it is no longer in production.  That is a "steal" price.

Did some research and figured out why I did not go with the Minox... it is 1/2MOA and 2FP.  I did not want either of those features.  I've never liked 1/2MOA adjustments.  2FP is OK and I have several 2FP scopes, but mostly prefer 1FP.

Thanks. I just can't find any info on those scopes.  Glass looks really good.

It was a very nice little scope as I recall.

$300 sounds like a good price.

I've done some more research.  Back when they were in production, price from several offerers was in the $750-$799 range, shortly after production stopped, prices were averaging around $499, and one place, that I'm not certain ever had them in stock, advertised $439.  To me, $300 is still a great price if you don't mind the 1/2MOA adjustment.

If you don't want it, let me know where to find it and I will buy it.  Might not be a great tacticool scope but sounds like a great little light weight hunting scope.
