My brother-in-law just bought one of these in a 3-9x40 and the box says it has fully- multicoated optics.  The turrets have positve clicks and it is supposed to have an unconditional lifetime warranty.  My questions is does anyone know who makes the scope?  He said it was only $50.00 and that seems cheap to me for all the features it has plus the warranty.  He likes his and I was thinking of getting one for my .22 rifle.  The box says made in china and I wanted to know if they owned the factory or if it is a different scope with there name on it.  Thanks, catt

I would steer clear, That can't be a good thing. not with my luck anyways. I personally wouldn't spend less than 200 dollars on a scope in todays market. Too many good scopes can be found at around $200 and you'll certainly see a difference.

I am more interested in who makes it than buying one.  I have never even heard of the company before.  I thought it might be a tasco or simmons with a different name on it.  More curious than anything I guess.  catt

Optronics markets headlamps and spotlights, I guess they are joining the growing number of companies that are outsourcing scopes from the china mainland and selling them under their name. You truly get what you pay for in the optics market. If you consider it a throwaway, if and when something goes four wheels up, than try one out. Guess its no more than a tank of gas in this crazy year.....
