Looks like a good choice for my glassless SCAR 17.

How is their warranty?

if this is as good as it looks, I could see this replacing my ACOG in a hurry.

Country of origin?


I hate to say this but there are some decent quality scopes that are made in China.
For about $200 more I think I would stick to all Japanese at minimum.
 


With the exception of SWFA's SS, which all Japanese scopes are you referring too?
Primary Arms Platinum, Sightron, Bushnell Tactical Elite is a little more.
 


Primary Arms Platinum $1,300

Cheapest Sightron SIII $900

Cheapest Bushnell Elite Tactical $880

The reason I asked is because with the exception of the SWFA line, Japanese glass has always been about $1k and up.

Here are some "decent" Chinese made scopes.

Primary Arms 4-14x44 $230

https://www.primaryarms.com/Primary_Arms_4_14X44_FFP_Scope_p/pa4-14xffp.htm

Primary Arms 1-6 ACSS $270

https://www.primaryarms.com/Primary_Arms_1_6X_Scope_with_Patented_ACSS_Reticle_p/paps1-6x.htm


There's a big price difference between a sub $300 scope and something in the $1k price range.  

I just wasn't seeing the $200 price gap.

FWIW I agree with your comment regarding country of origin.  If they weren't on the losing side in WWII, don't bother.  (US OPTICS aside).

Does this mean you have one from PA?  I'd love to see some reviews on it.
