Rob,

Well, most of my experience is the same as yours using the M144, which is a decent unit.

I have recently picked up a burris 20x compact and it is about on par with the M49, it is one of their cheaper models, and its built in china. The price is right, but like with most optics, you get what you pay for.

Personally, I am longing for a leupold tactical spotting scope with mil-dots. For the last 10 years I've been saying "put mil-dots in a spotting scope please", and finally someone did! Unfortunately, the spotting scope is $900.

I really like nikon's spotting scopes and burris's HIGH end models.

I will have a review of my burris 20x compact on the site soon.
