    I heard that the company has been struggling and just could not compete with other manufacturers selling better scopes or equal to them at better prices. Also their camera business has been struggling. I warned my wife about Nikon as she just upgraded her cameras and dropped a ton of many on hers and than turns around and buys another camera for her sister. Teach me to warn her again, but in her defense they were on sale and she saved almost $750 dollars on both cameras.

    I have always wanted a Nikon DSLR camera, price on my budget is a big deal. I do not need (ATM) another rifle scope. Though I might want to put one on my Muzzle Loader I don't know if I would put a Nikon Scope on it.

    I think it is a shame o reduce the choices of affordable scopes for people with budget concerns.
