About a year and half ago, I bought two 3x9 I believe 40mm objective Fujinon rifle scopes from a vendor selling them at a close out price, for about 120 or 130, as the new models were to be released.  I checked multipe other vendors on the internet at the time and the list price was about 450 and they were selling them at about 350.  Having done a little research of what info was available and all being positive, I bought two.  I have one mounted on a Mark V Wby. in a 7mm STW and works great.  The optics are fantastic, E/W are as repeatable as any scope I own, it is well built (Japanese made), very rugged looking, but not beautiful and came with screw in lenses, one clear the other amber and flip-up lense covers.  The new models were never introduced and from what I gather, they no longer make rifle scopes.  My questions are:  Does anyone else have any experience with these scopes and what are your opinions?  Does anyone have any info. on how the erector tube assembly is constructed?  The feel of the E/W knobs a precise with nice audible clicks.  Am I correct that they do not make rifle scopes anymore?  Did they make their own scope or source it out?  It looks like no other scope I have ever seen, so I doubt it was out sourced.  I have another and I really love the first one and wish I had purchased a couple more, minus the warranty issue, as since they were closeouts from sportmansguide.com, I am not sure how well it would work, but they should honor their warranty.

I bought two from a discount house. They were full featured and cheap BUT optically about like a BSA.
Once over 6X things were not as clear as Leupold/Nikon. Sold em' on ebay and broke even and got positive F/B.
Back when I was in SEA (68') there were cameras and lenses from tha company around that seemed to work well at less than Nikon prices.

The two that I have appear optically as clean as anything I own.  Do you know if they still make rifle scopes?

Yeah, I have checked there and found the samething.  But, they were suppose to have introduced new models and I was hoping somebody had some inside information.
