I was just scanning through the Deer Hunting BS thread, and noticed a lot of conversation about scopes. After a quick search, I did not see anything mentioning this company. A good friend's Dad had a store near Canton. OH that sold stuff dealing with birds.... seed, houses, optics, cameras, etc. The kind of stuff for enthusiasts like himself. His dad had given him a pair of Alpen binos that were priced fairly high end, something like $1200. We had a 15,000 acre lease that had about 1200 acres of old strip mine. You could watch the valley fills from several hundred yards away. These binos were extremely impressive! I have looked through most of the high end binos, albeit not in the field much, and these were as good, if not better IMHO. After looking through them, I went home to research the company, and low and behold, they make rifle scopes! He immediately ordered a 4-16X44. He got the scope at no markup through his dad. This scope was AMAZING! I just did a quick google on it and saw it on optics planet website for $284.
For those in the market for a scope, DO NOT overlook this scope. It is well worth the money and you receive a high end scope for a budget price. Hope that this will help anyone who is on the fence not wanting to spend a weeks worth of salary on a decent scope.
