OK, I have heard that the Pentax scopes are made in the same factory as the Burris scopes.  Is this true?

 

Has anyone ever heard of or have any info on this Pentax 2-8x32 scope?

 

Saw it here - http://www.gunsamerica.com/guns/976587267.htm

 

Wanted to see what I was getting myself into.

Pentax scopes are assembled by Burris in Colorado.  Presumably, they have Pentax lenses (different spec than Burris) but tubes and mechanical assemblies are made by Burris.

 

The scope in the picture (I think) is an older Pentax Lightseeker that is comparable to (and has the same mechanicals as) an older Burris Signtaure

Gotcha - so a price of $150 for the scope seems a little . . . much, eh?

If the scope is in good condition, $150 is a very good price.

Really?  Hmm.  I'm just trying to figure out if I have a real need for it.

If you decide that you do not, I'll buy it.  The ad only talks about the rifle with the scope, not the scope separately.  If you plan to buy the whole package, I'll buy the scope from you.

I think Pentax scopes are some of the best deals out there.
