The higher end Japanese Bushnell's are nice scopes, and reasonably priced.
My 3X9 Bushnell is outstanding, and was very reasonable. It's the brightest scope I own. The good Bushnell's are made in Japan and very nice quality, the low end Chinese Bushnell's are fine on a .22 plinker, and that's about it. No comparison in the quality, you can feel the difference.
