Post I looked at one of these too, but...

Got luckey and bought a Tasco Japanese made 36X on Gunbroker.
I'm not a great fan of Mainland China made optics, even though I do have a Simmons Blazer variable 8x32X that is helping one of my rifles make holes without any problems.
Big Mike is the guru of all things optical, from what I've read, the Chinese are pretty much a crapshoot.
Perhaps someone else will add something more specific to that particular scope.

Yep, I have a BSA 36x scope. I bought it from a member of this forum. It looked brand new! It tracks fine, and holds zero. The problem I have is with the optics. You get what you pay for! If you don't mind using a yellow lens, these scopes are fine. If yellow isn't your color, spend more money and get more scope. If all you plan on doing with it is to shoot the email matches, the BSA will be fine. In fact, I could be talked out of mine.

Yellow ???

Can you explain what's yellow??? I looked threw a BSA 8-32 at the local gun shop, and the sight picture was clear. Then again I use high power cuz my eye sight isn't what it use to be....You do get what you pay for, I'm having a hard time getting a good scope to put on cheaper rifles........JT

Yellow...

There are gunstore optics, and there are outdoor optics.

Take the thing outside when the sky is not perfect and you will see what I mean. The number one difference in scope cost is the glass. High quality glass and multiple coatings cost more money. The cheaper stuff sometimes looks yellowish in the sunlight. Zeiss has always looked blueish to me. Yellow = bad...blue = good.
