It actually came with the large side wheel, but that thing is heavy and this beauty already weighs 10.5 pounds as configured. If I want the thumbhole stock to hunt it with, all I have to do is swap stocks with the AA 410CRBSL.
I almost ordered one of those scopes from Airguns of Arizona but couldn't find anyone who had used one. I should have known to ask you Cliff. They come with those big side wheels if you want them too. I liked the reticle because it is almost identical to my Varmint Reticles I have on my Leupold varmint scopes. That's ashamed about losing that tape you shot. Only 75 days till furball shooting time in California? That's a nice looking setup but I like my thumbholed AA410 more.

They aren't the cheapest scope on the market, but for airgunning at the longer ranges, they are awesome. Lots of in-between aim points. I like my mildots but this is even better. I also like the side focus for the parallax adjustment. They also have locking turrets. Lift to unlock, make your adjustments and then push in to lock. The sunshade is also included.
That's quite the set up you've got there Cliff. I particularly like the look of that MTC scope so I went over to the Airguns of Arizona site and checked them out. Now you have me rethinking my scope set up on a number of my air rifles.

I've got three of them and never had a single problem, but then again the ones under the MTC Viper name are sold specifically as PCP airgun, rimfire scopes, so they may not be the same as the Millet line. Or they might be the same and they just hold up better in applications with little or no recoil.
That scope looks exactly like the Millett tactical scope I have and the specs are the same too. The glass and features are great but I have had my share of problems with it. I sent one back the first time when the point of aim changed with changes in the magnification. They sent me a new scope and admitted that the first one had problems. I sighted in my 25-06 again and last Friday I took it out of my safe for a yote hunt and the illuminated reticle was not functioning properly. I called Millett and they have been bought out by Bushnell. I had to send the second one back too. It is a nice scope, when it works but it is a bit on the heavy side. I am attempting to parlay it into a Bushnell and be done with the problems. I hope yours works out for you and all stays operational.
