That's what I'm thinking, just a little help for the old peepers around dusk. I'm losing my night vision with every year it seems. I went to the local Sportsman's Warehouse to check out the scopes. Very nice. Then the counter guy got me looking at new lightweight rifles and yada, yada, yada. Does the scope come with a heavy duplex? I didn't see the exact model but looked at a 1-5x Leupold that was almost as compact (8 oz., I think).
