    Well the scope came in and I am very pleased with it cosindering the price! It looks very well made. Will be putting some loads through it tomorrow hopefully. 20210510_155505.jpg

    Wow, I have 7 bushnell scopes, maybe more, on rifles right now and used many more and never had an issue with them. Some were used, some were new, always held zero and besides the typical fogging up that all scopes had back in the day no issues. Dad still have a bushnell custom 4x scope on his 22 from back in the early 70s and never an issue, besides being tiny. I have had issues with old weaver scopes and tasco but never bushnell. I have never felt the need to spend $1000 on a scope for hunting in Ontario.

    You’ve certainly had better luck than me. The worst part of my experience with Bushnell scopes was that they broke while sighting in before hunting season so would leave me scrambling for a repairs or a replacement. I’m very happy with my Leupold 2.5X10X50 which I purchase for $650 when Canadian/US currencies were par.

    I can understand the need to be frugal if you own several firearms. Scopes can be expensive.

    Dad bought a 7600 in 3006 back in the early 80s, he put a 1.5-4 bushnell on that rifle when new. He was a dogger, so that gun got banged around like crazy, he finally replaced that scope with a bushnell elite with rainguard, the old scope found its way to my win 94 angle eject and still holds zero now.

    I have not had them on any heavy or weird recoiling guns besides a 22 cal high powered air gun, Bushnell is one of the rare manufacturers that most of their scopes are good for spring air rifles, that is a Trophy 3-9x40, no issues.

    A few years ago, I bought a Benjamin .22 pellet rifle that came with a scope. It doesn’t shoot worth a damn so was thinking about switching scopes. From what I’ve read, and for some reason, putting a scope on an air rifle isn’t a straightforward affair. Maybe I should give Bushnell another chance.

    I’ve easily had over a dozen Bushnell with most being Elites. Never had any problems. I returned a pair of binoculars that were shot and they sent me a new one.
    Had problems with one Burris.
    I’ve also had a few Leupold without problems, for some reason I like Bushnell better to set up/ adjust.

    Bushnell has to be Trophy or better, you can call them to ask which is designed for a spring air gun, they have a reverse recoil that will destroy expensive optics.

    Another option is to get a scope specifically designed for air guns, there are some out there but you will not find them at most gun shops.

    I must have a dozen dusk and dawn scopes. My .22lr, .22mag, .17hmr, 17hm2, .22 pellet gun, ..177 pellet gun.


    All 4-12x40, 6-18x50 or 3x9. I have a few elite 3200, 4200 with rainguard on my high powereds, But I have no problems with the lower end bushnells.
