I have a 3-12X40 also, and now wish I had a higher power- to take advantage of the .17's range and for target shooting. Also have a 36X BSA Platinum Target and have had no problems with either one.
Both scopes have a lot of features for the money- threaded scope covers, target/range turrets with positive clicks, sun shades, smooth turning adjustable objective, etc. I also like the rubber-type coatings and find the optics to be clear enough for the price.
Some people here have reported problems with their BSA's, so maybe I've gotten lucky. I also haven't been spoiled by the high dollar stuff, so maybe ignorance is bliss.
