This is a general alert that my experience with the Winchester brand scope has been very negative. I do not know who the private label manufacturer is/was(?) but my 3x9x40MM has had several problems:1) poor glass quality. Even set on a mid-range power like 4x there is perceptible distortion throughout the field of view; not just on the edge 2) internal fogging. This is the first scope in many many years with which I have had a fogging problem.
I purchased the scope on an auction sight for a low cost optic for a camp gun...should have saved the money and hassle.
winchester use to get their scopes and other optics for them mfr in japan by Hako back when Hako was a good decent optic mfr. however Hako went belly up a few years ago and winchester obviously took their buisness to a less than stellar optic co.
