Can anyone Identify this Illuminated Rifle Scope?

Seems to be devoid of any markings except some writing on the left side near the back of scope. I can't make out what it says.

Here is a Video

Here are some photos.

I can't make it out, either. However, it has a somewhat unusual (for nowadays) combination of features, which leads me to the conclusion that it is an older scope which has been discontinued.

- It has a one-inch tube (you can see the ring inserts to step-down from 30mm in one of the side-angle photos).

- It has a rather large (50mm to 56mm) objective lens and seems to be fairly high magnification (based on its overall size), but has no objective lens adjustment ring.

- It has short hunting-style windage/elevation adjustment knobs and caps instead of tall target/sniper type knobs/dials.

- The logo is on the rear eyepiece instead of the left side of the adjustment turret.

Most current production scopes of this type will have some combination of a 30mm main tube, adjustable front/objective lens, tall adjustment knobs/dials, and (possibly) the logo on the turret vs. the eyepiece. This rules out most current scopes.

It looks very similar to a RWS scope I had a few years ago, and there are several Barska and older Tasco and BSA models that share many of these features, but not all of them.

Best I can do.

I think it's a NcSTAR 3-12x56. Everything I can see matches, except the logo (which could have been changed by the movie company if NcSTAR declined to pay for product placement). Items I looked for include the "bump" on the power/zoom ring; the skip-grooves (3 grooves, then an area with NO grooves, then repeat) on the power/zoom ring; the two widely separated raised/grooved rings on the adjustment caps/covers; and the overall profile with non-adjustable large front lens. Some views of this scope show slight differences, but the major items all match up rather well. Click the link to browse a Google image search of similar NcSTAR scopes:

I think you are right!

I watched the video several times in high res/full screen and the markings on the scope look like they say 3-9X56E. It might not be it but that is the best I can read. The wierd thing is... NcStar have scopes that are 3-9X50 and ones that are 3-12X56 but no 3-9X56 scopes. Other than the NcStar Logo and the white markings on the left of the scope....it is identicle to the model you said.
