TS source those scopes directly from Guan Sheng Optical, who both manufacture under their own brand and for well-known 'Western' brand names.

There are significant savings to be made by buying the manufacturers own brand instead of one of the brands that outsource manufacturing to them. The middleman overhead is significant, particularly when dealing with American companies if they've done little more than import an outsourced product, add a markup and then "export" to Europe.

Retailers' own brand products, like those sold by TS under their own name, are also more cost effective than the same products from big brands where all the big brand has done is to outsource manufacturing and add a markup.

Ain't free trade a wonderful thing?
