Just received this scope today.

 

Seems the "handle" on top of the tube rings was not included.

 

I've sent a email to inquire about it, but am curious if anyone else has experience with this scope and if the handle is part of the package or is it an option?

The description of accessories does not mention a handle even though it is clearly shown in the photo. A bit deceptive. Maybe sold separately?

I saw that also in the description.

 

I sent an email to inquire about it.  The handle (or riser) would be very helpful to me for my application. 

 

Waiting to see what they say.

Did you ever hear back about the handle?

I just received one from High Point Scientific last week and it came with the handle. I'm very happy with it.

Is this the same scope as AT72EDII just rebranded?
