If I hadn’t seen the eyepiece shot, I wouldn’t be Russian to buy them! 

Sorry.

It's not a mistake, I think, it's a lying. True magnification is about 15x or less.

It is almost certainly true 7x 50.

A popular ruse by cheap manufacturers to make the bins seem very powerful is to quote the mag as area not linear. All 7x (linear) 50 bins give 49 x area mag. Often used to see ads in the magazines years ago for 50x mag bins.
