I asked the people I bought mine from where I was on the list, They said they are still filling people from 2001! Okay, I realize this is a "wait for it" item. I ordered in March 2002, so my question is...

Has anyone gotten thier 10" lxd 55 yet and is it a good scope? I have read reviews on the net and it sounds like a good scope. I just want to make sure it is worth the wait.

Jason, a friend of mine received his about a month ago. He ordered his back in the fall-2001. The scope appears to have fairly good views - but the mount is little weak for the size/weight. Also, it take some time to setup due to placing the 3 10-lb weights, etc. Also the scope is big and somewhat tricky to get into the rings & locked down. But a nice scope for the money if you're looking for wide field of views.
