Could be Edgar Bros but I'm not 100%. J
That was quick and after a quick Google search I think you are right. Not quite as cheap and nasty as I thought. Thanks!
Yup it's the Edgar Brothers Optimate - I had one on the .22 for a long while, now keep as a spare as was given a Swarovski and Meopta went onto .22. Nothing wrong with it at all and no reason to change. Bought it late 1990's and the 6x44 was £100 ish price point, when Meopta was £250 ish and Zeiss, s&b £400ish for the same scope.
Definitely Edgar Brothers
'Tis what sits atop of my 243 and its perfectly good at its job.
And apparently they have a lifetime guarantee .
Some good information there. Thanks everyone!
Very good scope, lifetime warranty that they still honour even though they are no longer in production (you get a voucher)
