Default Pentax Optics -- Any History?

Another website I frequent has a Cameraland "Deal of the Day" and they are offering Pentax scopes at $69. Pentax Gameseeker II 3-9x40 (P) #89745 only $69.99.

I know you get what you pay for, but am thinking of one of these to store away for a .22LR/.17HMR project rifle. Anybody ever have any actual use history with Pentax optics besides cameras, or this lineup of scopes?

I have two Pentax scopes, my opinion, you get a lot of scope for the money.

The older Pentax scopes that I've encountered have been great. Those were all Japan-optics if I recall. I just wonder if this new line-up is cheap off-shore fodder using an old established name for marketing.

Both of my scopes are of recent vintage, last 3-5 years. The rifles have shot to point of aim and the scopes seem like a good value. I probably wouldn't install them on a heavy cal rifle but one is sitting on an old Savage 99 in 250-3000 cal, not a hard kicker. I think I paid under 85 bucks for each of them from Sportsman guide.

Well my order got canceled due to insufficient stock. A shame, but I'll try again later if they restock.
