So far the on-line dealer has had very good communications regarding the scope problem. He has offered to replace it with a similar scope or credit it for an up-grade one. We'll se how it all works out. The rifle was in very good condition! I did install a Redfield 2X7 scope on it I had laying around for now just to get it to the range. I do need a Knight breach plug tool to remove and clean it if any knows where to obtain one or who has one to sell. I believe they are gun specific though.
