Kinda looks like a Kowa, which by the way are one of the best spotters we carry for the money.

What do you plan to use it for?

 

1,000 Bench Rest

Nature Observation

Spying on Neighbors

Packing on Hunts

etc.

Yes to the 1000 Bench Rest

 

Possibly on Nature Obsveration (mostly in FL, in wet environs)

 

NO (HELL NO) - you haven't seen my neighbors - ewwwwwwwwwwwww.

 

Possibly on Hunts

 

 

More than anything, though, shooting at the range.

A friend of mine bought one of these scopes, it appears to be a direct copy of a Kowa TSN-1. With the 20-60 eyepiece it is pretty good, when you put on a Kowa 25x LER it is incredible (for the price).

 

I have compared it side by side with my Kowa TSN-1 and 821M. It is really good, not as good as the Kowa, but really good.
