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.
