Has anyone heard of an outfit called "Comabt Military Optics" website: http://www.cmoscopes.com/

Are they any good? worth the money?

Thanks.

Never heard of them.  They seem kind of pricey for a no-name outfit.  The hunting series apparently is not fully multi-coated, nor shock proof.  They also have a 4X with an AO.  Seems kind of strange, maybe for a .22 target rifle?  The tactical stuff looks similar to the old Colt optics from years ago.  They didn't list meeting any milspec standards.  I would be leery.

I have no intention of buying anything from them any time soon.  I was just curious if anyone has used them.  I generally like an idea of a small straight tube scope like their tactical line, so I was curious.

Thanks.

We carried them years ago and did pretty good with them.  We stopped selling them because of huge backorder problems with CMO.  They were made by Hakko for them and you could get the same units from Hakko with their name on them until Hakko went out of business.

 

If the CMO guy was still using Hakko, they will have no warranty now.

Thank You, Chris.

 

I am reasonably well familiar with  various scopes marketed under Hakko name, so that gives me an idea on the quality of CMO scopes.

 

Thanks.
