I was browsing through the list of SHOT exhibitors for new optics companies and found this one:

www.shirstone.com


Has anyone heard of this one before?  They seem to be based in Japan, but it is not clear where the scopes are made.  Visually, some of them look like Weaver Classic Extreme and some look like LOW products.  Hard to say.

For some reason, that link didn't work for me until I manually typed it into the address bar.
 
Maybe this one will...
 
Some of those do have a L.O.W.'ish look to them.
 
Until seeing the term used here, I had never heard of a "forcal plane" before, either a 1st or 2nd version.

It's an interesting mix of styles.  The AO and exterior finish looks like a Sightron IMO.  The magnification ring on one  model looks a lot like the Simmons Pro series.
