A lot of shooters at my gun club wont spend more than 100 on a scope and therefore they only tend to go with the cheaper end of the scope scale. When I turned up the other week with my 280 scope (and then had problems with it focusing at 25 yards) Their 80 ebay bought 6.5 - 24 x 50 scopes focused down to 10 yards up to infinity and gave a clearer sight picture. When I returned my scope, I purchased one see link below. It was clearly labelled as some random name (ESF IR SWAT Extreme Tactical Rifle Scope) and today it arrived and it is the same as the other guys have.

For 80 ($160) its a lot of scope for the money, so while if you are mislead into thinking you are buying something your not then all the comments on this thread are quite right however not all scopes and other equipment from Japan / China are rubbish, sometimes just sometimes you get more than you expect.
