I have a zenith lux 2.5x20 rifle scope. It has Antreflex Fast Rikmedel and Nr 216658 on it. Does anyone have any info on this?

Zenith Lux was introduced in Sweden in the early 70's by "Vapendepoten", (a company that sold hunting gear)

The line-up:
2,5x20
4x and 4x widefield
Zenith Panorama Lux 4x32, (don't know if the panorama equaled widefield)
1,5-4x20
3-9x widefield

As the price for the Zenith was lower than for a Bushnell Banner, my suspicion is that the scopes were made in Japan by a smaller "Optical House" than LOW (the price also indicate a higher quality than the scopes sold by the name "Vapendepoten") The scope was sold for a couple of years and then "vanished into oblivience" (or should it be oblivion?)

Edit: It seems that you've got yourself a swedish scope.
Antireflex = Non-glare
Fast = Fixed (non-variable)
Riktmedel = Reticle
