I been looking around at this site, and it seems most of you place hundreds and even thousands of dollars into optics. I cannot accord an ACOG, Aimpoint, EOTech etc. Has anyone experienced these economy scopes?
Barska® 3-9x42 mm
NEW NcSTAR® 3-9x42 mm
NcSTAR® 4x30 Scope with illuminated reticle!
I am going to do mostly target shooting @ 100-300 yards. Ocassionally hunt a deer. Thanks
i wouldnt use anything related to ncstar.
was uninformed and purchased one along with a friend and both dont hold zero and have poi shift throughtout the day regardless of how hard you try and not move the rifle.
put a bit more money into it and get something better or keep lurking/reading for more info.
For around $120, you can get a Sightron 3x9x40 that will be light years better in quality than any of the ones you mention. Weaver V Series are around the same price...they're pretty decent as well.
Some folks here have had good luck with Meuller optics, but I don't have any experience with those.
$100 is about the minimum you can expect to pay and get anything that's half way decent. Others here will sneer at that figure, but some of the upper end Simmons scopes have worked out well for a lot of folks here, and I know that a lot of guys got one model of Simmons shot gun scopes that were pretty good.
My own personal experience with the cheap Chinese stuff hasn't been good, so I pretty much tell people to avoid it if at all possible.
I'd think for what you want to do, a 2-7 or 3x9 should do very nicely.
