    I had one on my ML. It worked worked well for a couple of years. It started get fogging in cold temps, then it would not hold zero anymore. Bushnell replaced it for free, but still sits new in its box. I installed a Nikon, big difference.

    I've owned one and it worked fine providing but I did not expect too much from it. With optics you tend to get what you pay for. The challenge is not paying for what you don't need.

    Bushnell also made the trophy 1.75-4x32. If you can find one, a step up on the banner for $150. I have one on my turkey gun. Clearer glass compared to the banner I had on a rimfire which I found hazy.

    I have a few including the one you're looking at for your shotgun. No problems with any of them. A few of my friends and family use them too.

    The most noticeable difference between the Banner and higher end scopes to me was they are a bit "jumpy" when getting them zeroed. Meaning the click adjustments work a little more crudely than on expensive scopes. Otherwise, they're an good value scope.

    I had this scope (3-9x40 I believe) come on a Savage Axis 2 in 30-06. It wasn't tightened/installed correctly from the factory and made for an interesting trip to the range...wondered why shot #3 I wasn't even hitting paper. Scope moved around and after 3 shots the reticle was all messed up. Glass cracked inside.

    Brought it to Bushnell HQ in North York and they replaced it no questions asked, but sold the replacement so I can't comment on actual field use. I do remember it being very clear on those first few shots though!

    Cheers

    Over the years, I’ve owned 3 Bushnell scopes and had trouble with each of them e.g. loss of nitrogen, internal lenses coming loose, crosshairs breaking. I’ll never buy another one thank you very much.

    I have a Banner 1.5 x 4.5 on my Mossberg 535 for over a dozen years.
    I shot lots of 3.5" heavy loads to pattern different loads and different chokes and shoot a bunch of Turkeys.
    No problems so far. Great scope.

    Do you use the same scope for slugs as well?
