im not 100% sure on this but i have seen them and i thought the salesman told me they were made buy bushnell, i think he said they are comparable to an elite 3200?? but i maybe wrong the one i saw was huge must have had well over a 50mm objective

Of this I am positive-they are not made by Bushnell...I purchased a 3x9 ( only paid $79 ) and was given 2 of the 1.5x6 scopes by a friend of mine that owns a local sporting goods store.. The 3x9 is on a 223 NEF and works fine. The 1.5x6 scopes are not worth the money. The adjustments are reversed  on each ( up goes down and left goes right ) One has held a zero on a 30-30 , but the other that I put on a Mossberg 695 slug gun gave up after about 10 rounds, and no longer holds a zero..

As an aside, perhaps the salesman was thinking of the  Browning brand of scopes that  is made by Bushnell.

Browning are definitely made by Bushnell, the S&W I'm not sure. One of the S&W scopes is coated with "Rainshield"  and is made in a 3.5-10x50 which Bushnell does not offer to my knowledge. Did a search for the trademark name of Rainshield and found forum links with some talk about these scopes. Many believe the scope is manufactured for S&W by the now defunct Hakko corp. If this is true, I would steer clear as any warranty issues will be a problem.

I believe that you are correct about the manufacturer being Hakko....
