This was ATK's line of scopes when they did not have Weaver.  Not sure if they are going to keep Intensity or not.  We are tying to find out and place an order.  All of the Intensity products are old Simmons SKUs (44-Mag and Aetec).  At one time ATK owned Simmons so they learned what was made where and used that knowledge to source their own brand.

I'd guess the guy was being less than completely honest with you.

I think Leupold is overpriced for what you get, but not THAT overpriced.
