I just purchased one of these from AliExpress.... https://www.aliexpress.com/item/BSA-TMD-4-14X44-FFP-Hunting-Riflescope-First-Focal-Plane-Glass-Mil-Dot-Reticle-Tactical-Optics/32821284918.html

They are on sale for the next few days for $132 Cdn. including shipping.... and come compete with sunshade, covers, and your choice of dovetail or weaver rings.... There is a nearly identical model with a different reticle, which you can find on Ali by using the "Find Similar" feature, available from several suppliers, at slightly higher cost....

Great price, but I doubt they're real BSAs.

Midway is selling the same scope, without the sunshade and rings, for $119 USD (but they won't ship to Canada).... My guess is that they all come out of the same factory in China.... If it was half the price you could get in the USA I might be concerned about it being "Counterfeit".... but not under this circumstance.... JMO.... As we know, BSA don't make scopes....

I guess I'll find out!....

From the scope view photos, you can see lots of chromatic aberration. At this price range, it's to expected I guess.

Those photos make little sense anyways.... The field of view at 14X in the photo is less than 11 MilDots, which would be about 39" at 100 yards.... The stated field of view for that scope is 7.9 ft (95") at 14X at 100 yds.... I suspect the photos are just to show you what happens to the reticle in a FFP scope.... it zooms with the image.... JMO....
