    I just purchased an new "old stock" from an online auction site. the seller stated it was new and after inspecting it I have no reson to dispute it. it is an IOR 4x14x50 with 1/2 MOA adjustments, MP8 recticle (non-illuminated) and has a steel main tube. the thing weighs a ton. the thing is it is marked Amalite on the scope, it is also marked Romania as all other ior scopes I have seen are. The seller included the original shipping receipt and it is marked as 2005. It did come with an IOR box also, although i can put a barska in a S&B box, it still dont make it an S&B. The IORs that i have handled have all been new/ current productions. So any information you can give in the scope would be great. Everything looks and feels correct just never seen an "armalite marked IOR. thanks guys and gals

    *Mods, maybe this should be moved to optics/accesories. thanks.

    That does look exactly like the old style IOR I have. Everything looks right except that Arma Lite, Inc logo. *** is that I wonder. Just call up Valentene at IORl; he's pretty cool and will happily answer your questions. If Scott picks up he'll know too. What would be suspicious is if it didn't weigh a ton. These are incredibly heavy. Is the box a black one, or one of the newer green ones?

    I'd just call Valentene at IOR to be sure, but it looks right to me: 303-979-4578
