Great rundown in the limited amount of time you had. Good to see Leupold getting value conscious with their mid range products and Hi-Lux working on new models. I've had good luck with several Hi-Lux scopes and think they deliver beyond their price point.
Hi-Lux is a bit different from most other Chinese optics companies in that the bulk of their stuff they make themselves. Some of their products are OEM, but they are a minority.
Also, their reticles are designed by someone here in the States, so they are done by a guy who actually shoots.
When I first tested a Hi-Lux scope I was quite underwhelmed, but they took criticism well and worked hard to improve. With the CMR and CMR4, they really turned over a new leaf and the PentaLux series promises to be better yet.
