Thanks Glen. I will take a look at them tomorrow and try to see if that is what they are. They 
look smaller than the Heath scopes, but I could be mistaken about that.
they DO have the Collins logo and paint color! They look amazing.
I thought perhapos I had never seen anyhting like them... so this may explain it. 
I have two to sell anyway. I will have to think of a fair price.
