The TSN-821 is an excellent scope for the money. Get the 27x LER eyepiece. Bottom line though, what are your expectations/needs? If you are looking for .22 holes at 100 yards there are a lot of cheaper scopes that will work. If you want to see them at 300, not many that will do that consistently, especially at the Kowa price. At a similar price, the high end B&L scopes are good too.
