Notsams.....forgot to respond to your comment about Tract Optics....my first Tract product was a pair of Tract Toric 10x42 binoculars for 9 months, but did buy the pair of Toric on July 12, 2017 direct from Tract for around $700. Compare them to my Swarovski's (purchased new), Vortex Vipers (purchased new) Zeiss (purchased new), Canon's IS (purchased refurbished) and Leupold Gold Ring (purchased used) and they were great, sharp, clear and contains Schott glass. They are so close to my reference pair and for about a 1/3 the cost of the Swarovski's EL there is no question that they are a great buy....the only down side was that they were a tad bit heavy....I would not recommend that you wear them around your neck, unless you are young and in good shape...but the optics are amazing and clear as a bell....since I do a lot of tree stand and ground blind I carry these heavier binos in my day/fanny pack.....

I was looking at the Binoculars a couple of weeks ago when I had to replace my truck binos that I bought probably 15 years ago...will donate them....cannot focus but one side of them....they were marked down from $99 to $29 during the store closing sale....i must have looked through 12 to 15 pairs before buying them. My thought was to replace the truck binos with some heavier ones that I can leave in the truck and just had the Tract binos out and was still amazed of how clear they are. The binos I selected for the truck is a pair of older Nikon's 10x40mm. Put a pair of $200 binos out for my wife to view the birds at her feeders in the back yard...LOL....

My second Tract product was a 22 Fire for my CZ455 - 22LR, 22WMR and 17HMR (Switch Barrel Rifle). Mounted it and sighted the 17HMR in for 100 yards. it is a 4-12X with the BDC reticule built in for the 22LR ballistics...so far so good...clear sharp also on this rifle, has a once in diameter tube on it but for $200 bucks you get a lot for your money...not heavy at all, easy, straight forward windage and elevation knobs, 1/4" adjustments...pretty much a standard scope...

Tract offers a full lifetime forever warranty on their products. We will see what happens to them in this economic turn-down for everything shooting.....hopefully they can weather the storm......hope this helps.....
