Hi Folks,
 
I was wondering if anyone had experience with Pentax optics. i am looking at a 2x to 5x by 20mm Whitetails Unlimited in "old" MOBU for a project gun( 10/22 ). How is the Pentax glass and clarity??? I have never looked thru a pentax scope in my life....actually, i have never seen one in person. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and opinions.

The same as a Burris if I am not mistaken. This model may be different, but I believe the glass comes from the same maker. ILya will likely have a better idea, and if I'm wrong he'll put it straight.

Had a pentax white tales unlimited 3-9x40 on a 300wsm for awhile, I think Cyborg is on to something, now that he mentions it, it sure does seem to be the same as the burris ffII.  I didn't have the scope long enough to make a fair evaluation.

I believe it is a FFII with Pentax's proprietary coatings . I have three  2-5's and a 3x9. I like them. The Twilight Plex reticle is really easy to pick up , and the clarity is quite good ( on par with my Monarch 1.5-4.5 )

That is excellent info.....I feel much better about the future purchase. Thanks for the pics of the Pentax WTU's.....they look awesome on those guns. I have a special make up Ruger 10/22 in the " Old " MOBU that I am building up.....trying to match up camo's and still get a good scope.  I had a Bushnell Banner in 3 to 9 x 40mm in " new " MOBU and it looked horrible on that gun. Was Burris and Pentax doing a joint effort on these scopes or just made in the same factorys ???

I believe Pentax contracted Burris to build--
