Rated 1 out of 5 by lobodog DO NOT BUY THIS SCOPE
Bought this scope (6 x 24) for my god-son's rifle. Had no problem installing the scope, however bore sighting was a totally different problem. The elevation and windage knobs are pull out - and rather stiff to pull out. The elevation was easy to set. However the windage knob was totally useless. It just spun and would not engage for any corrective movements. Trying to ease the knob out was a waste - you can't ease it out. Trying to ease it back in to get it to engage was a total waste of time. Called BSA regarding repairs or replacement. Another waste of time. You'll have more success talking to a computer activated response. This would have been my fourth BSA scope. Have one on my 308, 300 Win Mag and 7mm Mauser. Absolutely no problem with those scope and can shoot sub MOA at 100, 200 and 300 yards with them. This is probably a fluke from BSA, but it has to be their worst scope along with lousy customer service. I won't be buying another BSA scope. Changed my god-son's scope to a Nikon and he started shooting MOA at 200 and 300 yards within 30 minutes of arriving at the range. Spend the extra money and get a Nikon scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by johnnybanjo A lot of scope for the money
I own 2, at 100 yds on a 22 my nephew and I are averaging 1" groups. On a 308 we are averaging 1/2" groups. The scope adjusts accuratly and sights in fast. I love the windage and elevation knobs. After sighting in they can be pulled out and free spooled to zero. The reticle has a row of triangles for shots farther than your zero, providing long range capability. And it's a good looking scope that comes with a screw on sun shade.

Pros: Price, clarity, features, locking turrets, warranty.
Cons: advertised weight, glow in the dark turret markings, clicks a little mushy, second focal plane mil dot.
Currenty on a Savage Mark II 22lr. This is the fourth scope on the rifle and is proving to be my favorite. The optical calrity is excellent at 10 to 12x, this is where I do most of my shooting. At 16x the clarity is still great, just not as good at the lower power settings, also the eye relief is very critical at 16x. The resetable lockable turrets are a great idea, but the glow in the dark markings were not thought out very well. Only the markings in the window get charged so that when you rotate the turret all else is black. My scope weighed in at 23oz, not the 17ozs that is advertised. The extra weight is not really an issue for me. I prefer FFP scopes but the price is the killer on those so I just deal with the SFP.
