I have a bit of a reputation on other shooting sites for swapping my scopes,
a bit of a short story on my findings.
I have in the last 16 moths been set upon by a optician, in other words i now find myself having to use glasses.
i have found that some scopes just don't work with glasses ( for me that is ) i have run down a lot of glass, liked lost and never to return to some, so here is my rather selfish self appointed opinion of what i think of the scopes i have had.
i have to say there are some that the big budget boys might not even have heard of, but this is the real world of those of us who shoot on a budget,
I for one have to save up then sell the scope i have, in order to move up in the world of glass. so sit back have a beer and a bag of crisps and a good laugh,
But don't mock me, as i can't be the only one who has lost more money on bad glass only to find out later ( far to late ) that if i had saved the money in the first place, took good advice from mates who have been shooting longer than me, i may have learned all this a bit sooner, and be a bit better off to boot.
so in order of best to last, 1 best the rest are just that.
( please note i have only listed scopes i have had, used, or still have.
1, swarovski 8x56 habicht, its on my .243.
3 s&b 8x56 had one sold it and now got another on my 17.and its staying this time.
4,meopta 3-12x50 best budget glass i have had.
5, mtc mamba, 3-12x44ir just top stuff for not a lot of money.
6, Simmons WTC 3.5-10x50 just very good for a budget scope.
7, nikko gold crown 4-12x40 older glass with some class.
8, weaver grand slam, sadly never had one but the one i used was not nice IMO.
9, any Bushnell scope as they are so over rated and over priced they just make me want to barf.
10, a bog roll tube with a couple of the wife's head hairs as the reticule, this would have been before the Bushnell but it got soggy in the rain.
well i hope you all had a good laugh, but this is just my way of saying a good hello, and it serves as a guide for you to see what I'm like,
or is it just to keep you all guessing.
