    I have a Barska on my 10/22. It's not so bad, but it's not a high quality scope either. I have had a hard time adjusting mine to be perfectly clear, can't quite get there. I'm anal about it though. It's actually pretty close. Mine is a different model though. It's definitely good enough for a .22.

    whats your spending limit? It's all about clarity of the glass. That tends to be the problem with cheaper scopes. That and the reticles can drift, etc... But if you just want to know what it feels like to have some glass on there, try something like what you wanted. Just know, that it's not meant for serious punishment.

    Oh, and ALWAYS have a set up BUIS (back up iron sights) on your rifle, or at least in your bag. If your optic goes Tits Up, you gotsta have a backup. Magpul is releasing a polymer backup this year for like 50$ or so. I'd go with that, if you can wait.

    Wow, those are some awesome prices, esp on the Leupold stuff...i wonder what shipping to Canada would be like tho...some of that stuff is literally half price, so even it shipping is 50-60 you'd prolly still be saving a ton

    kamikaze,
    These are first rate scopes, but some are 'floor models' or have been returned and have some scope ring scratches. but, eff it, the glass is what matters.


    s2k, get what you can afford, and shoot often!!

    Yea, i was reading that some are floor models....quite frankly if it operates 100% and still has factory warranty I could care less if it's used/demo/etc as long as I'm getting a good deal. That place actually makes some of those Leupolds within my price range :naughty:

    Since we are on WMD and scopes for ARs what do you guys suggest for 200 or under? BSA? Nikon?

    Nikon should not even be used in the same sentence as BSA.

    It going to be going on a varmint style AR so CQB scopes aren't really going to be topping the list.
