Are the Leapers BDC scopes any good and what kind of price should I expect on a used one.

Not really much good (other than for plinking). Be sure to locktite the 4 screws that hold the mount to the tube in the 4x21 model.

For a new one you should be paying in the $30-$40 range. Only you can decide what a used one is worth.

(oh yeah the 4x28 model is a bit better and should run an extra $10 more).

Thanks, I was thinking of this for my daughter and the price was pretty cheap. She has never used a scope so this I don't have to worry if it gets trashed.

Thats all right, she has little sisters and a little brother I think it will get broken in.

then maybe you should spend a little more for something that will last a lot longer.

I have a $40 Leapers T168. It works just fine. No Leupy but it does the job at the range.

I guess my next question is it good to train kids to shoot with a scope I never did, and I prefer Iron sights I have better then 20/20 vision in both eyes.

the scope would be easier to use imo.



since with irons, sight picture and cheek weld plays a strong role in poi

I'm starting my kid with a red-dot. Scopes magify the image making it easier to see - but it also magnifies movement and less skilled shooters might overcompensate.

I think starting out on a basic (1x) optic is fine. First teach the kids breath control, trigger squeeze, and the basic positions, before you move them to irons and introduce the complexities of sight picture and sight alignment.
