I just got an optronics 6-24x42mm illuminated mil-dot horizon series scope. I believe it is probably made in China but I have to say, I am very please with this scope. It is very durable, quality optics, clear, lifetime warranty, the illuminated center mil-dot is just awesome, and it was only $79.99. Yea, I know, everyone says to spend just as much if not more on the scope than on the rifle. Save up and buy a $4,000 Leupold 3-9x40mm instead. I will mostly be doing targets and long range precision shooting and I have to HIGHLY recommend this scope. I am perfectly happy spending what I did and I feel I got a great value out of it. Just thought I'd post a praise about this scope in case any of you are wondering about it. Don't get me wrong, I am definately not saying go cheap on the scope. I am, however, saying that if you are on a serious budget, you should definately look into the Optronics brand.
