Leapers 4X20 Tactical Scope, Are they ok, I will be mounting it on a A2 20" HB. Mostly for plinking and targets.

You might want to check the optics section, though they seem to only recommend relatively expensive scopes. (like 10x what the leapers cost)

The few items (rings and base) that I bought that were "Leapers" brand were total crap.

They have the look but not the quality of the old Colt scopes. I have one and I just can't seem to get the eye relief adjusted so as not to get a headache after only a few minutes of trying to look through it. I've never had a problem like it before, even with other cheap scopes such as Simmons or BSA's. I don't subscribe to the "if its not $500, its crap" philosophy either, but I wouldn't buy another of these. My $.02 Cheers, Otto

These scope can be had for about $30 and that's exactly what you can expect from a $30 scope. You'll be better off just using the A2 iron sights and spend the money on ammo for practice.

I just sent one back to tapco after receiving it. Mounted it on the handle and noticed that the top turret was at 11:00 and so was the cross hairs. Got a real Colt for the handle Much happier now.
