I have some German ones that when you look through the little bits the thing you are looking at gets closer.

HG, I didn't ask how to use them, I was thinking more of optical quality, FOV, depth of field, quality of image , how they preform in varying light conditions, sharpness at the centre and edge of the field of vision , relative weight in hand , eye relief and perhaps how the two sets from different makers compare.
You look at a sets of Kershaw, Ross , leitz and a Zeiss and whilst the :

Works for all of them , how they preform is unique to each make.

Nope..... it doesn't - I've got a pair - and if you look through the big bits - the little bits make things look right far away.... Now THAT'S clever! :lol:

Presumably BC might stand for something as mundane as Bulgarian Contract? The crest on the french made ones looks slightly like the Romanian crest on their helmets - the sort of back to back stylised letter C, just an observation. ;)
