Surprisingly good scope especially for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AZ Written on July 8, 2014
Just got it and was pleasantly surprised at the optical quality, fit, and finish, and it came with a very nice screw-in lens hood. The crosshairs are the typical duplex with a quite fine inner section. The "bullet drop compensation dial" is adjustable for initial zero. Of course the compensation for the 3 bullet weights is an approximation because of the variability of different brands and muzzle velocities. The Butler Creek #19 (eye) and #29 (obj) covers will fit.
Pending durability review I think BSA has made a very good little scope.
Pros: Well made and finished
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Broke in less than 50 rounds of .22

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on December 23, 2013
Mounted this to a 10/22. In less than 50 rounds the reticle dislodged itself from its mounting. Called BSA and they will not pay for shipping it to them. Scope is less than 10 days old at the time of failure. Read more reviews before buying, there are more instances of this same problem. BSA rep was non sympathetic and just wanted to do business as usual.
Pros: Price
Cons: Quality...
Would recommend: No

Pretty sweet, but.......

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 30, 2013
Clarity is about what you would expect for the price. Not real clear at 9X with cross-hairs that are to coarse for a 22 rim-fire. The parallax adjustment is way off for the dial scale markings. The least parallax shift is not necessarily at the best focus.

I liked the side focus over the objective type. The markings are clear and easy to read. I also liked that there were no turret covers to get lost. Fit and finish were above average for this price scope. All things considered, this is a good value for a dedicated 22 rim-fire scope.

The 3 ballistic scales on the elevation dial are so close to the same that there is little distinction between various bullet weights.
Pros: Many features, nice finish
Cons: reticle cross hairs to heavy, bullet drop dial useless...
Would recommend: Yes

Sweet 22

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on April 23, 2013
Sweet 22 was a great addition to my Ruger 10/22. Easy to BZO to the rifle. Only have used the 36 grain turret. Accurate at 100 and 200 yards....

BSA is made in China JUNK!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, NC Written on April 6, 2012
I bought this for a 10/22 thinking the bullet weight specific elevation turrets were a good idea. And they are, however the optics have gone completley foggy. Things like the threads are crap, it was beat up when it came out of the box, the markings are poorly done, all demonstrate the poor quality. Its unusable in its current state. I am sending it in for a warranty repair but I do not have high hopes. Good luck getting BSA on the phone. No one answers, mailboxes are full. Bottom line, they don't give a crap and you get what you pay for. Spend a bit more, like $40 bucks, and get a Nikon or something else that will last. We will see what happens with the "repair".
Pros: Great concept and features
Cons: Poor quality...
Would recommend: No

Sweet 22 Series Scopes 3-9X40 scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 27, 2011
Purchased a Sweet 22 Series Scopes 3-9X40 scope which lasted for less than 50 rounds of 36 grain LR ammunition through a Rugar 10/22. The recital slowly transformed from a plus configuration to an X configuration. Returned for a new one and arrived on the 17th of January and still have not received a replacement. As a result cannot recommend the scope because of the total lack of quality. I am 69 years old and have been hunting since the age of 9, love benchrest shooting and have used a number of scopes but none have ever been as bad as this one.
Pros: None
Cons: Cheap construction in an attractive package marketed with boastful advertising...
Would recommend: Yes
