Bought this today so I could compete with the wifes 44 lol. Actually I've taken a liking to shooting her fancy Ruger 77/44 and had to get me a rifle too. Gun was $299. I filled out the paperwork and the online site to do my Brady check was down so I left and came back. Since I had to wait I was telling the employee that I should get a discount in a joking way and he said he would give me a discount on a scope. Well if that's the case I might have to look and found this Redfield 2-7 that I thought would work great on this rifle, a $55 discount later and I walked out with both.
