Re: "Universal" brand scope
My grandfather's deer rifle sported a Universal brand 2.5X-8X scope. IIRC, he bought the scope in 1972 before his trip to Wyoming for a Mule deer hunt (he shot a big 5X5). They were made in Japan and at the time were a decent, economy scope. I hunted with Pap's rifle a few years until I shot a deer with it and had the scope out in all kinds of weather. It never fogged or gave me any troubles. I took it off of his '06 and put it on my 9 year old's .22 rifle. It still is clear and holds zero perfectly.
I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.
