So, what is the verdict on these new scopes? Does anyone out there have one of these and how is its performance optically and mechanically?

I just got a 1.75-5x20 Gameseeker.  I am setting up comparison of a bunch of smallish variables, and the Gameseeker will be a part of it.  Stay tuned.

For now, the glass looks better than I expected in good light.  I have not looked at it in low light yet.  Scope tube looks like quite a few other decent Chinese made scopes.  The machining seems very similar to a couple of new Millet scopes that I have.

I sent Pentax an email last week trying to learn more about their version of the BDC reticle.  They sent me a drawing that shows a 3 inch drop (1.5 moa) for 200 yds, 13.5 inch (4.5 moa) for 300, 30 inch (7.5 moa) for 400, and 55 inch (11 moa) for 500

 

The horizontal length of the stadia equates to 36" at each of the above yardages

 

I took a look at some balistics tables and could not find anything that was an identical match, but a few were very close

 

The fully multi-coated lenses sounds nice at this price.  I would like to take a look through one of the 1.5-6x40 scopes.  Sounds perfect on one of my 30-30's  Eye relief sounds a tad short.  Price of course sounds great.

 

I have been patiently waiting for koskin's complete test.  Until then, how is the image around the edges?

The image looks pretty good so far, but I have spent very little time with it at this point.

In good light I held it up next to a Weaver Grand Slam 1.75-5x32 and it did not seem far behind.

This is very informal testing though, so take it with a grain of salt.
