Let's see...

 

A scope from a company you've never heard of with some kind of feature that noone (including the seller?) knows anything about, no price listed, and you want a buy/don't buy recommendation?

 

Don't Buy!!!

 

Unless you know exactly what it is you are dealing with, stick with the numerous household names in sports-optics like Leupold, Bushnell, Nikon, Pentax, Swarovski, Zeiss, etc.  Leave the obscure, odd, rare, and unusual optics (especially the ones of questionable quality and/or origin) to nutjobs and collectors - who at least might have either some idea of the relative worth of the optic in question or at least the knowledge base to be able to weed out optics with desireable qualities from the cheap junk.

 

By the way, I don't include myself in the above mentioned group - which is why all my optics are from Leupold, Bushnell/Bausch and Lomb, or Pentax.
