I have seen the ads, and even email them regarding these, and eager to hear and find out more!  As you SWFA guys probably know, they are being "made" by Bushnell.  Even better I have found, they are being made in Japan, so I am thinking that they may share some attributes with the Elite line of scopes.  The 2-7x32 has really piqued my interest as it is long enough to fit my application, light weight, and probably bright, and reasonably priced.  The only lingering, and obviously unanswerable question I still have is the likely durability (reliability) of these new scopes.

 

I would deeply appreciate any insight you guys could provide regarding these, and comment if you plan to carry them.  I would imagine they are being distributed by Bushnell as well, so i figure the chances are high that you might carry them.

 

Thanks

 

Bob

I've yet to see a gun company sustain anything approaching a commitment to the riflescopes they brand (can't say "make"). I'll believe it when one lasts for more than 3 years.

We do not have any experience with the Browning optics line, therefor we can not offer our opinoin. That being said, I will say that Japan made scopes are typically good quality as you stated. For that reason I would say that they are probably a good value.

 

We do not plan on stocking the Browning line of optics any time soon
