Anybody know anything about the following HK scope?   Is it a good buy?

This is not an HK scope.  The original HK scope was made by Hensoldt (a subsidiary of Zeiss) and is typically called Z24 or Fero Z, or soomething along those lines.  The scope you are looking seems to be a Chinese knockoff made by Leapers and called Accushot T28 (sometimes branded as Tapco T28).

Leapers products are certified pieces of excrement.  If you can verify that that scope is made by Hensoldt, it is an awesome buy.  If it is chicom knockoff, stay away from it.

My goodness!!!

Is this the less politically correct, more abrasive koshkin we were warned that would be appearing??  

 

That said, I couldn't agree more with your review of Leepers though>>>>

Politically correct? Me?

Are you sure you were paying attention for the last year or so?
