I found the scope I want on the samplelist for a solid $100 cheaper than retail. And it's demo A. Reassure me if you dont mind. If I'm making a mistake talk me out of it. How have your experiences been with the samplelist?

GET IT!! I and many others have had GREAT experiences with The Sample List. 

A "B" listed Sample List item is probably closer to an "A" than a "B", if that makes sense. 

No worries..

I did some trading to get one. A Zeiss at that. I traded in one and got a new one also, and it was handled flawlessly.

+1.  I have purchased multiple scopes from the sample list, and I recently purchased zeiss binos and a leica rangefinder.  All flawless.  Good luck with your purchase.

It's ALL you guys' fault.  Because of this thread, I went and looked on the verdammt samplelist.  I found an item I REAAALLLLY NEED.  I don't want it… I NEED it…

My anniversary is very soon… I was going to get Lori and me custom golf clubs (she wants to take up golf again… go figure).  NOW, I'll end up just getting her the custom clubs.  

Golf clubs… rifle scope… golf clubs… rifle scope…

Just kidding, it's not even a contest…  golf balls are targets in "sniper golf"… who needs clubs...

I've ordered five or six scopes off the sample list in A,B, and C condition.  They were always in better condition than I anticipated.  I felt I got a good deal on all of them and will continue to keep an eye on the sample list for future needs.  No regrets here.

I have at least 3 samplelist scopes, already.   All have been better than expected.
