They show the scope as having 200 off, but it does not reflect in the price of the scope. Any ideas if it is indeed on sale for 299.00?

699 is the regular price, so with the 200 off it is 499. Yes, the way it's listed is a bit confusing, but 499 is the sale price.

499.00 is the reg price, that is what everyone sells it for. So yes it is very confusing. I got a little excited there. I was trying to figure out a way to get one past my wife.

Yes as far as I can tell $499. is the regular price at other dealers. But I don't see where they say $200. off.
