These are quality German made binos Actual model is BL 10x42 BR. Just purchased these to upgrade to 10x magnification from the BL 8x42 BR which I bought from STP about 3 years ago. You can see a difference in the 10x magnification at very long range when trying to identify a target against a difficult background. The 10x model actually weighs in at 1oz less than my older 8x model.
The one slight negative is that Minox do not supply a decent set of dust caps for the objective lens'. I found some Vortex lens caps for $10 that are a great fit.
