Has anyone heard of NcStar optics? Anyone use them?I was bouncing around GunBroker.com and came across a scope & mount package. The scope was made by NcStar. I've never heard of them, but it seems to have OK features for the money. Many scopes well under $100 and it looks like their high end line is around $200. They've got red dots, spotting scopes, binos....about 300-odd different items. I think they are a co-manufacturer for other, more well known companies and/or brands.Just curious if anyone here knows of them and if the products are worth buying.

They are popular with air gunners and airsoft. I have one of their red dot scopes on an automatic BB gun I own. It's a cheap Japanese knock-off, not real impressed with it but it does the job. They might have some decent rifle scopes though.

A guy that both Clampdaddy & I know had a cheap NCStar on his .223. He took it off and replaced it with a cheap Bushnell and was much happier, if that tells you anything...

I got one of thier cheapy models a while back to put on a .22 and I didn't care for it. They put some type of coating on the front objective lens that has a orangish-red apearance but when looking through it the sight picture has a greenish color. It was fine for brite mid-day shooting but in the early morning, late evening, if it was overcast, or if your target was hideing in a shady spot, it kinda' sucked. On the otherhand one of my buddys got thier top of the line model with target turrets and a 30mm tube and he seems to like his. The only problem was that the adjustments were supposed to be quarter MOA per click but it was more like three quarters per click.
