What do you guys think of this scope bang for the buck. how does it compare say to a Nikon Monarchs glass? My AR is scopeless and I want something other than iron sights. Thanks in advance :signs1180lq:

Take a look at these if you are on a tight budget. Good scopes at a fair price. I won't buy anything else from BSA unless the start making motorcycles again. http://www.muelleroptics.com/Woodog

Personally I think BSA are the bottom of the barrel. I have one sitting in my closet collecting dust. If you are looking for something decent but low budget, look at the Muellers as Woodog said. I also like the Simmons Whitetail Classic 6.5-20x50 WTC It can be had for $109 shipped. They also have some in the 3-9x40 variety, but I haven't tried those. Another great buy is the Bushnell Browning 3-9x40 (Same specs as the 3200 Elite) for $129.99 Browning I just got this for my AR I am finishing this week!

BSA scopes are complete junk. I have 2 and wish I hadn't wasted the $$ on them. If you want a cheap scope that is quality go to www.opticsplanet.com and look at Barska scopes. I have 2 and would buy another in a heartbeat.

Thanks guys there goes the BSA idea. I am looking at the Mueller Tactical 4-16x50 looks like it would be a lot of fun.
