Horrible Clarity When it Counts

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on November 17, 2012
This scope fits nicely in a value budget , and performs well in optimum conditions. However, most practical shooting is done in less than optimal conditions. When the sun angles in on your shot, the lenses become about as clear as a milk jug. When light begins to wane ,the reticle disappears quickly. Point of impacts shift with power adjustment , and the amount of perceptable lens parallax is unbareable. If you can wait , save up a bit more money and upgrade. If you can't this will work , but be prepared to be frustrated quickly.
Pros: Value
Cons: Poor lens coatings...
Would recommend: No

A Whole Lot of Scope for your Money

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on April 5, 2010
I agree with the above; The quality really Surprised me for a scope in this price range. A Decade ago, a scope made in China was much less quality than Korea, Japan, and Europe. Bushnell's Elites are made in Japan and no doubt, they are the best. But Bushnell's Korean made Scopes were actually surprisingly good in the 80's and 90's and probably even better now. I feel that in the 90's China was struggling with Quality Control; but after buying this scope I am convinced that Bushnell's Chinese Manufacturing Facility has adequate Quality Control; and could very likely be on power with the Korean made scopes. The ring on my Parallax Adjustment came loose; but I fixed it better than the factory with some good RTV Clear Silicon. This scope feels so heavy duty; I swear; it feels more solid than a Bushnell ELite. But we all know Elites are the best. However, IF YOU WANT A SCOPE IN THE CHEAP PRICE RANGE; ALWAYS GO WITH BUSHNELL. YOU'LL NEVER BE DISAPPOINTED. I have two Bushnell buckhorns from the early 90's made in Korea and they are sealed good because they haven't lost any of the Nitrogen Fill; you can tell because if it looses nitrogen the inside of the objective and/or ocular lenses will form a light fog/film; which will not distort your view; but you can notice if you examine the lenses(not actually looking thru the scope). Those two older Buckhorn's I have also have good tracking, and just the sharpest looking duplex reticle you can ask for. Go with Bushnell; if you want a step...

Bushnell

I bought this scope from Wal-Mart the day I picked up my Marlin 917V back in 2005. It was $70 then and it has been a great addition to my Marlin. Great optical quality for the price, as good as some higher priced BSA I have, and I always prefer the adjustable objective scopes....

Bushnell 4x12x40 Sportsman

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, SC Written on December 31, 2009
Purchased it from my local Walmart for $70. Mounted it on my Savage 93, .17hmr with heavy barrel. Sighted in very quickly, it was very close right out of package. Shooting sub 1" groups at 100 yards and 1.5 - 2" groups at 150+ yards, with bipod and table. I wanted a little more magnification, but 12x seems to be enough. Have only shot about 100 rounds through it and it's still holding zero. Great scope, buy it and you will be happy. It's as good as the $249 Bushnell I have on my Remington 700 30-06.
Pros: Looks great and Works great
Cons: None as of yet...

Bushnell Sportsman 4-12x40 AO

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 20, 2009
I purchased the Sportsman 4-12x40AO scope with the intentions of having a cheap AO scope to try out on my 10/22. I figured that if the performance was unacceptable, then I would relegate it to my magnum air rifle. Well, I mounted it up, and was very impressed with the optics. It has very good control of flare and barrel distortion for an optic at this price. The lense coatings are not up to the level of my Elite 4200 or Elite 3200's, but those scopes cost 6-10 times as much as this one. I would say that the sportsman scope that I have delivers optical clarity close to that of my nikon prostaff. I really did not expect this much quality and magnification for under $100. I actually swapped this scope onto my Savage mark 2 heavy barrel .22, just to see how well it held zero and with Aguila Golden Eagle Match Rifle have been able to consistently shoot sub MOA groups. This is no worse than I get with the 5-15x40 elite 3200 that normally sits on top, although when the sun is in either lense, the elite's superior coatings take a clear lead. The tracking is very good though the clicks are not always positive feeling. It is a little heavy and large for a lighter rimfire like the 10/22 carbine, but feels right at home on a full size rifle. I have no idea how well it will stand up to recoil as I only have used it on .22's, but the construction seems of good quality. If I were on a budget and pressed to buy a scope for a .22, I would go straight out and buy another one of the...
