    I consider it the Cadillac of the target scopes from the 1950's. It had a tapered crosshair. This kept the crosshairs from looking relatively heavier at higher power. I have owned a couple of them. The downside, as far as I am concerned, is that parts are no longer available. The unique windage and elevations adjustments on both mine had become stiff from dried lubricant. I could loosen them up with a little penetrating oil but that is a poor way to correct the problem.
    They came with a lifetime warranty from B & L. It was honored for a time by Bushnell. I understand that Bushnell has been bought by some other company. I would avoid buying one it if it needed major repairs.
