I have a carry handle scope for an AR that I picked up several years ago. I had forgotten about it and it just sits in the safe. I pulled it out today and I'm trying to figure out some things about it.

It has no manufacturer mark that I can find
Only marks on it are 3x20 on the tube, and elevation turret is marked
"range yard x 100" along with hash marks and "1to2 3 4 5"

The main things I want to know are, Who made it? is it a quality piece or a crap reproduction.

It would appear to have bullet drop compensation by the marks on the turret. Is anyone familiar with how to sight it in to set up for the BDC?

Any information about it will be appreciated, I got it in trade a while back and am trying to decide what to do with it.

ETA: it has a duplex reticle

From my searches, It looks like it could be a chinese BFM 3X20 scope.
But from what I can find those usually have a star stamped in the tube and have made in china printed on the bottom....

Yep!

It is a Chinese copy of the Colt 3x20 scope they sold years ago.
