Target scope for 452



Log in to see fewer ads
Looking to have a little more fun with my 452. I have a 2-7 rimfire on it now, but I was thinking of a target scope in the 9 to 14 power range that won't brake the bank.

What about the Nikon EFR in 9 power?
Any others in the -/+ $300 range?

thanks,
RH

I have three of the Nikon 3x9 EFR with target dot. Very good scope for less than $200. My 452 wears a leupold 6x18 w fine crosshairs and a dot. Cost twice what I paid for the rifle but more than worth it, tracts like a watch and very clear.

V-16 or V-24 Natchez has a V-24 Varmint reticle for $319 and V-16 FCH dot for $299.

Here are a couple of Weaver scopes both 4-16x front is V-16 and back is a Grand Slam.


Here is a close up of a V-16.


Good luck on your quest.

I picked up one of these from Amazon for $400. Excellent clarity.

I just purchased one of these Nikon 3-9X 40mm AO EFR with precision target reticle and put it on a Marlin Model 60.
Excellent scope with clear, bright optics and a great reticle for 25-50 yd target shooting.
I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one of these scopes if the the need was to arise....

Signalman1 gives great advice. If you really want to shoot target, the more magnification you can get, the better. The Weaver scopes are very good deals and will keep you satisfied for a long time. Give serious thought to the V-24.

Another vote for the V-24 Varmint reticle for targets and wringing out ammo.

For $300 or under, the Weaver V-16 is a good choice. Mueller APV is a great value in a very affordable package.

I've gotten back into irons on just about everything, so I dont have any big scopes any more. But...
I've had a Sightron Big Sky 6-24 in which the glass through the middle magnifications took my breath away. Weaver V24 with a Varminter reticle is a outstanding value, except the limited elevation causes some headaches for a few people.

Best value in a target scope I ever bought was a Japanese Tasco World Class 6-24 FCHD (silver antler) 1/8" clicks, target scope. They come up now and then on ebay and run about 175-200 for clean ones in good shape.
They didnt have the coating available on todays scopes, and glass quality lagged noticeably behind the V24.
But solid mechanics, good looks, and consistent clarity through the full mag range made it a outstanding value IMO.

I've got a 3-9 Nikon EFR. While a good scope, I need more magnification for 50-100 yard shooting at targets. The 1/2 MOA adjustments put some people off, it never bothered me. If you're in Canada, mine's for sale..

I love my three Nikon efr scopes set on 9 power they are perfect for what I do which is informal target and plinking and hunting. If I was more serious about target shooting alone, I would pick more magnification, possibly a fixed power scope with ao adjustment. after using those Nikon efr's I don't want another non AO scope either.

also remember that a lot of the variable scopes don't do well at their highest magnification settings so read all the customer reviews you can.

I bought 3 of these when they were on sale at OP and couldn't be happier and I have bad eyes, very clear even at x14, multiple reticles to choose from.
