You get what you pay for... not much

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 13, 2012
I bought this scope with the intention of using it while bench shooting a .223 rifle at 100yd and 200yd distances. I wasn't looking for high quality optics, but just wanted to see where the paper was being punched.

Unfortunately the eye relief on the Bushnell Ultra Compact is so bad, you have to take off your glasses to see through the optics. This is not an option during live firing. I would recommend looking for a spotting scope with better eye relief.
Pros: Small and Compact
Cons: Seems like ZERO eye relief...
Would recommend: No

Works for me!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 26, 2010
It has a clear image, I like the compact size (fits in my small range bag) I like the light weight (can easily carry it with me in the field) AND it comes with a sleeve that has a small snap hook on it so if I want I can clip it to my vest, backpack or a lanyard and use it as a monocular with out it's little tripod.
I don't like how the eye relief on it makes for a hard time finding your target while wearing eye protection, even with the rubber eye piece rolled back (but most spotters under $400 are the exact same way) and the zoom adjustment is a little hard to turn but once it is where I want it, I don't mess with the zoom much.
It is a great little spotter well worth the little money!
Pros: Clear, Compact, Light Weight & Extras
Cons: Eye Relief, Hard to Adjust Zoom ...
Would recommend: Yes

Does the job

Look, this spotting scope does the job. The optics are what you pay for but they're definitely not bad. Eye cups are a little loose though...
Pros: Decent optics for the price, easy to use
Cons: Eyecups...

Bushnell Sentry

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on June 5, 2009
The only complaint is that you twist the eyepiece to change magnification which is very stiff, I was afraid I would damage the scope. The second item is that the mini-tripos/window mount is only good for this scope. I would not use it on any other scope.

I like that hard and soft cases. I do like the image quality for the price I paid. It is not the worst scope I've used and it is not the best scope. It is a scope to keep in the truck to use on a moments notice.

Fix the magnification ring and include a shooting stand tripod instead of the mini-tripod and you would have a 4.5 to a 5.0 rating. I will try a universal adapter to get some digital pictures, wish me luck!

Sentry Ultra Compact

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on May 11, 2009
I like the Sentry scope but it broke the second day that I had it. You twist the eyepiece to change magnification which is stiff. They eyepiece broke free of the magnification ring so I couldn't chang the magnification without pushing the eyepiece with force against the magnification ring. I sent it back for repair.
Pros: Compact, magnification range, camo, light weight
Cons: broke on day #2...
Would recommend: Yes
