workable

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on October 1, 2013
So far so good. Mounted the 8 Point on a 300 Win Mag. So far 30 rounds fired and still hanging in. I have a Simmons on a 22lr and it works very good. We will see with this one. Light is good images are clear from 3 to 9. Just wish that the smaller line of the reticle were thinner, they block out the bull at 200yds. But then for $50+/- you cant expect to much.
Pros: clear images, good transition between magnifications, eye relife pretty good, not to position sensitive. Put it on a 300 Win Magm 30 rounds fired, still holding in.
Cons: like the duplex retical, just wish the center lines were a little skinner....
Would recommend: Yes

Broken after 37 rounds

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on August 27, 2011
The scope was easy to adjust and held a good zero. Zeroed in March and didn't touch the gun until August. The zero was still dead on. 1" group at 150 yds. My day was ended early when the eyepiece fell out. The plastic "guide pins" for the focus adjustment had sheared off.
Pros: adjustment was dead on
Cons: didn't hold up to my 300wsm...
Would recommend: No

Ok for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on December 17, 2010
Good for the money, not a Leopold but no major issues, except the poi may wander very slightly with eye position.
Fairly clear and decent in low light.
Not for extremely precise shooting but ok for closer range hunting.
Pros: good image, reliable seems like it should cost more.
Cons: may wander slightly...
Would recommend: Yes

Good for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 29, 2008
This a great scope for the price. I bought one for my Marlin 30/30 and it has held up perfectly. Very bright and clear optics. I looked at a lot of "lower priced" scopes (BSA, Tasco, etc) before choosing this one, there was no comparison. I have a Bushnell Banner on my other rifle, and they seem to be very comparable in performance. I didn't have any of the issues that the other reviewer mentioned with parallex, maybe he got a bad one or maybe user error. If there is one down side to this scope, its that the eye relief is so much (3.5 - 3.75 ") that it can make for tricky scope placement if your mounting system doesn't have a lot of adjustment range.
Pros: price, performance
Cons: not many...
Would recommend: Yes

simmons blazer 3 - 9 x 50

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on April 22, 2008
This scope is on my main white tail rifle. It is as good as one I have that cost me a lot more last year.Easy to set up and keeps its zero on my 30-06. Its been out in all sorts of weather with no problems. But remember, its a cheaper scope than many, but I shall keep using it as it does me well, and I cant see spending more on a scope when this one is well made.Simmons have done a great job on these scopes.
Pros: Great price, good features.
Cons: None for the price...
Would recommend: Yes

Parallax from h*ll

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, LA Written on December 26, 2007
This scope is super-sensitive to eye placement behind the eyepeice. If you're off, the edges of the view get real fuzzy, and it gives bad reflections from surrounding light. But even worse, with the rifle locked down in a vice, slight movements of the eye from center (but within tolerance for aforementioned problem) cause the point of impact as indicated by the cross hairs to move around on the target - ALLOT. It's very difficult to get good groupings with this scope; recommended only for the most expert of marksmen - you will need the skill to get good results. Another issue is the recticle adjustments. Easy to do without tools, but the 1/4 MOA "clicks" aren't good clicks; very soft and spongy - it's very easy to lose count when moving them. I bought two of these for my 9 year old daughter's first guns; after working with them for a day and a half; I set them aside and bought her a Leupold VX-1. Proof once again: You get what you pay for.
Pros: Cheap
Cons: Requires allot of skill from shooter to get good groups...
Would recommend: No
