Bushnell AR Optics rifle scope

by Armyof1, from United States, NC Written on November 9, 2014
Great scope for the price ! I had this scope zero'd in at 100 yards in less than 5 minutes and it has retained it's accuracy after being dismounted and mounted on several trips to the range. I am very satisfied with this scope and with OpticsPlanet ....

A pretty good match for my AR

by Jafala, from United States, AR Written on August 30, 2014
I wanted a scope with well over 9X magnification as, even at 100 yards, my eyes aren't what they used to be. This scope feels solid and the w/e turrets both have positive, audible clicks. I have not box tested, but adjustments have been accurate for zeroing. The glass is very clear and light transmission is good. The eye relief is a pretty touchy so takes a second or two to get full view. I have only shot at 100 yards so can't comment as to how well the BDC reticle works. The side parallax adjustment is nice, but seems to be somewhat off; giving me a clear picture when set on 75 yards - for an actual 100 yard range. One negative for me is the weight. Although my rifle (still) feels balanced, a four to six ounce weight reduction would be a plus. For the purchase price, especially when on sale, this scope is hard to beat....
Pros:
  • value
  • Clarity
  • Adjustments
Cons:
  • weight
  • eye relief
Best Used for:
  • Target shooting
  • hunting with an AR or MSR type rifle, plinking, low light shooting, mid-range shooting

A good scope for the money ... but

by Slim, from United States, TX Written on August 26, 2014
The clarity and quality of this scope was what I expected, even more. However, the purpose of this scope is for long range shooting which is why I gave it 3 stars. The ballistic drop compensation dots are too large to use with precision at longer ranges for which this scope is intended. Horizontal tic/lines would have been better. The BDC dots are also set for full magnification (18x) which is a disadvantage if you have a rifle with a longer barrel or use a lower drag bullet that results in a flatter trajectory. As an example, if the BDC was set for 16x magnification, then magnification could be increased to tune the reticle to a flatter trajectory and you don't have to memorized odd-ball ranges. I'm going back to a mil-dot reticle set at 10x and put this scope on my 10/22....

Great scope for the price

by Sean, from United States, CA Written on August 26, 2014
I put this onto a stag arms L6 super varminter with Nikon P-223 mounts. Great fit for the AR-15 platform, with minimal adjustments (and no shimming). Eye relief could be improved with a different mount, but not a big problem. Clarity is great, but I haven't tested it in low light conditions. The 18X makes shots on a 12in target at 300+ yards very doable. I'm very happy with my first scope purchase, and would recommend it to anyone else looking for an entry-level scope for distance shooting on a budget....

Exceeds expectations

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on March 21, 2014
I have an EOTech setup for close range on my Ruger SR-556 and I bought this scope for beyond 200 yards at the range.

I was impressed with it right out of the box. It looks great and performs just as good. The adjustments have firm positive clicks, the view is crisp and clear, the BDC system works great and is accurate upon zeroing in at 100 yards.

I use the scope for 200 and 300 yards and have to partner it at 300 yards with a spotting scope to see 223 holes.

Not sure where the scope was manufactured (the package says American Company) as there was no information on Country of Origin on the package, so I have to assume China.

A Millet mount was included and it is a good pairing. It is a single point mount and keeps clutter of the rail. It was made in China too, which is sad....
Pros: Crisp, clear view
Cons: Stiff power adjustment...

Not Worth It

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 17, 2014
Will not focus on anything out past 100 yards. It is heavier than I expected, and anything out past 100 yards will not focus both the image and the crosshairs together. I have tried adjusting it all. even after working through and sighting at 100 yards, it seems there are still wild shots that are way off. I know it is not the rifle because it is a nail driver with other optics.
Cons: Parallax is horrible...
