3x20 A2 scope with the carry handle setup lever. Only markings on it is CJA at the top front with 3X20 on a line under it. Range/bullet drop comp built into the top of the up/down sight adjustment. Very good to excellent condition but no box. Paid $20 out the door at a hole in the wall "antique" shop. It is a very well made, solid, bright clear scope with a black body, does not look as if it was mounted at all or maybe only once or twice.

So any one know who made it? I would assume whoever CJA is did, but what manf is that? Thanks.

Yep, I have a real one that is a 4X20 that is an almost exact match except for the name. Trying to find out if it was a clone or a Colt. Either way, $20 bucks is all I am out. The lens coatings match very well, nothing like the Chinese lens coating colors. Thanks for the help.

At one time I had a Colt 3x20 and it had a "made in Japan" on it. I don't recall much else except htat it was a heavy little bugger for it's size. Pretty sure it had a "Colt" on it as well. Probably pretty sturdy.

I know my 4x20 has a made in Japan on it but this one does not. However, except for the markings and the power level, they are Identical. It is a pretty solid piece of kit, and machined and lathe turned, not some cheap casting or stamping.

In the AR scope replicas I have seen so far, they range in price from $25 (Leapers), $45, and $69. I wonder if any of these are the same and who makes them.
