    I don't own one of those per say, but have heard good things about them. If the price was right, I would give it a try.

    Interesting, I'm looking at the 1.5-4x

    Its a really great price, I'm just wondering if it will hold a 0 on a shotgun.

    Try this website.If for not pruchasing-at least for info about the scope ,which is designed for shotgun.


    ps-i had once a lowly Bushnell scope for my shotgun(20 G though)which was excellent scope for less then 100$.
    The field of view was bar to none,and the optics was good for 100 y .
    I still regret selling it with the gun.

    Let us know.Good luck.

    I have one on my turkey gun. It has held up to recoil from 3.5 inch turkey loads for several years with no problem.....it’s mounted on a saddle mount on my 870.....

    My hold the zero for years it happened that after 6 month I shot 4 mm from the centre on 100 yard
    And I bought it for $40 on gun show it is a wide angle scope , when some hunter's try to discriminate me for it I call them to come with me to the range ... ( None of them dear )
    (I was completive shooter in my youth )
    I am not saying that the more expensive scope is not better , just that not worth the money to spend
    if the hunter is not driven by peer pressure ...

    Thank you rick! this gives me much more piece of mind haha

    ill be hunting the bush mostly, and if i do hunt the field edges 100 yards will be my max shot if anything with that scope for deer. although my deer spot is in the bush so i think the lower powered scope is a better choice for me. trying to get some pictures on here but my laptop is being weird with onedrive like usual.


    thnak you guys for the input has helped alot.

    I’ve only heard of one Banner that went bad. My son had his in his .270, crosshairs went wonky. He sent it back to Bushnell, they replaced it, no charges....
