Hi to all,
I wanted to know if anyone has any experience with Konus or Leapers riflescopes. I have a Mariln 336  in 30-30 caliber and need a scope. I know those are not great brands but unfortunately in my country I dont have many choices.
Thanks for your input.

I have had very good luck with the Konus Pro Plus 3-10x44 illum. My neighbor had a Leapers and it was pretty low quality.

I feel your pain, like you i'm from a country where only the cheap entry level stuff are available in stores sold at a hefty price. Fortunately i was able to get good scopes thru other means. 
I think the konus scopes would be a  better choice. At the very least, the konus scopes seem to have better glass and the craftsmanship as well as adjustments are positive and somewhat better than leapers. I don't own a konus though so i can't say about reliability or how the poi holds up in the field, i've just handled them in stores. The leapers though, i have for my C02 guns and i've bought a good amount for some hunting buds, the 5th gen stuff as well as their true strength line. So far only one has failed to hold it's POI, but the adjustment and feel of the turrets, sf or adj obj bells, and the zoom ring are a hit and miss affair. It's either on the loose and flimsy side or a bit tight. The lock on feature on the turrets of some of the models are a good plus though. 
The two brands though both have a good number of negative feedbacks from various shooting and optics forums, but the number of negative feedbacks from konus seems to be less, and you probably would find more positive reviews on konus than leapers.Smile

The only place a leapers need to be when talking about rifle scopes is as a target to test the bullet throught the scope shot of good ole Whitefeather.
