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.
My guns are mine, they aren't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like. So I guess the government is **** out of luck.

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

And you'll be able to see it to do it with that new Burris. :signgreatreport3kg:

:) 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:
