“JoeWayneRhea”Air gun scopes are marketed like TV sets at Walmart . Same size , but that’s about it :).


You mean that they look the same on the outside because two brands use the manufacturer so you can’t tell that one has clear glass and the other uses milk bottles?

It’s the same with buying cameras, projectors, tv’s and scopes. Crappy models have specs that look the same as ones 10x the price and you can’t find a difference until you see one in the flesh. 

Luckily for Walmart, it seems to have escaped most people’s attention that it isn’t a saving if you are just paying less for lower quality. I.e. You haven’t necessarily got a good deal if you pay less for silver than you did for gold.
