Hanging Tough!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on November 1, 2009
Got one of these from Opticsplanet three years ago. OK, here's what I've learned after that amount of time and service on three rifles. It's appearance is good, the finish is durable and has withstood three different sets of rings (ring marks are nearly nonexistent) and it zeroes/holds zero very well. My Savage 110s in .243 and 30-06 were both tremendously accurate as is the Marlin 336 it is currently mounted on. All of these rifles managed easy 1-2" groups at 100 yards. The eye relief is very limited, however, and one must take time in adjusting it when mounting the scope...it has a very small "sweet spot". And the anti-glare coating gives the sight picture a slight yellow/brown look (like cheap sunglasses) that takes some time getting used to! Despite this, the fast focus eyepiece dials in a clear, crisp picture. Not one of my Nikons or Weavers but has worked just as well thus far, and has actually performed better than I expected it to!
Pros: Appearance, Finish, Adjustments, Crisp sight picture
Cons: Eye Relief, Brightness...
Would recommend: Yes

Prohunter 3-9X40

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 18, 2007
A decent scope for the money, but did not seem to meet the hype that Simmons advertises. While all functions are smooth and it zeroed well on a .243 at 100 yards, it is awfully dark, I'm assuming due to mediocre light transmission. Picture is clear and sharp, though. I have a couple old Simmons that are much brighter than this new one and is surely does not compare to my Nikon and Bushnell scopes.
Pros: Fast focus eyepiece, windage/elevation screws, appearance
Cons: Is awfully dark; poor light transmission...
Would recommend: No
