I know exactly what you mean, not all of us cannot afford the mid to high end scopes. As most budget scopes, they are outsourced somewhere in Asia to reduce cost and make it more affordable. They claim of having the same US quality assurance. I have a friend that buys nothing but Nikons (all made in the Philippines) and he is very happy with all of them.
It has been a few years ago but the Pentax I looked through was very good but does not have the eye relief I needed, IIRC it was 3", I'd like to keep mine at 3.5"
Another scope to consider is the Redfield Revolution line by Leupold. Below is a pix when I compared it with a Nikon.
