1) a lot of those older European scopes didn’t come with windage adjustments. They expected you to do that with your rings or bases.
2) Lens coating technology made a BIG leap in the late ‘90’s and early ‘00’s. I have a mid ‘90’s 6x42 Docter that was just abou the brightest scope in existence at the time. Ten years later a $138 Weaver K-6 6x36 was brighter, and a European 6x42 would have been brighter yet.
3) if you go too far pre-nineties plastics and rubbers weren’t as long lasting. If the seals are brittle, you can lose the nitrogen charge and your scope will fog.
