Opinion? Yep. DON'T buy a BSA. They are a piece of junk. Get the Burris or some other high quality scope. But not the BSA.

I have a BSA on one of my gun and it's been ok but the glass isn't all that great. I also have a couple Burris scopes...........buy a Burris with the B-Plex retcle! They are awsome scopes for the money and often you can find deals thru Natches or Midway where they throw in a pair of Burris binoculars or a compact spotting scope for free. I don't trust scopes that require twisting on the turrets to adjust for long shots. Unless you pay top dollar for a topshelf scope, they never seem to return back to thier proper zero.
Sharps, the rifle that made the west safe for Winchester!

Real tractors have two cylinders and hand clutches.

My rifle is mine, it isn't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like.

Ditto Braz and Clampdaddy. I've got an armfull of Burris scopes, both pistol and rifle, some over 20 years old. They still work well. Just ordered a Fullfield II 4.5-14 with a ballistic plex reticle. Have one BSA Platinum series that I bought on a half price sale for $69. I got my moneys worth with the BSA. And, I get a little more than my $ worth with the Burris's. Just to be clear, I think a $125 scope from BSA is worth $69 and a $250 Burris is worth $275. JMHO

:) I have to agree I bought an early Sweet 17 from BSA and couldn't figure out my my .17HMR shot so badly. That is until I took that scope off and replaced it. It was like a miracle! :rofl2: I've got some Burris Scopes and they work very well. Here is one on one of my Contenders.Posted Image

Well, the winner was the Nikon Prostaff 3x9-40Even at BassPro, every "Optic Specialist" has a different opinion on glass and Quality.One dude LOVED BSA, but hated Burris......Go figureI went with what I know. I have had Nikon cameras and lenses for more than 20 years with no regrets.Thanks again for everyone's help. This forum is a great resource. :blink:
