Hi All. 
I am looking for information on a scope that was given to me for a review.  Reading around the 'Net, I found similar scopes listed by Barska, Vector and CountersniperUSA.  This particular version of a 4 x 16 x 50 FFP MilDot actually came from CP Upland Optics and I assume that it is a Chinese knockoff of something coming out of the same factory.  I have to get back to the store owner who is considering carrying them but I have a strong idea that these could be a lot of trouble.  However, I am prepared to be open minded for a product that maybe inexpensive but reliable.  Can I please get some feedback to forward to the storeowner.  Thanks for any info.  Steve

Welcome to OT
 
I can't say that I have ever heard of this brand. I would certainly be very skeptical.

I recall some interaction with the gentlemen from Upland Optics on this forum.  I think the conclusion was that we stay away from it.

I think I sent him an e-mail or two without much success.  Seemed like some sort of a scam artist to me.

Hi guys
 
This is a picture of a similar scope except the one I have has slightly different style of knobs.  The one I have has deeply triangularly fluted knobs.  However, all the other features are the same. 
 
 
Having dealt with Chinese factories in other business' I have found that they will produce the set quantity to fullfil a legit order and then produce an additional number for the employees to market in leu of pay.  Since this scope I have has no manufacturers markings I suspect this is the case with this scope. 
 
I still would like to find out who actually makes the scope and if the click adjustments are reasonable accurate.
 
Thanks again for the feedback.
 
Steve

Looks exactly like the Vector optics from China, only 25 moa of vertical adjustment on the Vector, ok glass for a 200 to 300 dollar scope but the Millett TRS-1 or the super sniper 10x has better glass and a lot more adjustment.
