The trophy is a nice scope for the money. I have had 2 of the rifle and about
5 of the 2x6 pistol scopes. I never had a problem with any of them. On the
pistol I still have one on my 629 44mag. I have also had them on a Encore
308 and 223. Holds POI well thru the power range. On the rifle I have one on
a 8mm mauser and the other on a 22. I must of liked them to have owned so
many. I now only have the one on the 44 mag and the 8mm mauser. I sold the
rest because I sold the guns they were on. They are made in Japan and have
a life time warranty. If you need warranty work you must send $10 for shipping
and handling. They say that the warranty is to the orginal owner but if you
have to send one in all you need is a note telling them what is wrong and a
return address with the $10. They don't ask for a sales slip and you don't have
to register it if you don't want that is not for warranty work. BTW my son has
a banner on a Rem 700 in 338 mag that has never been a problem also. The
banner is one step below the trophy.

I am wanting to put one on a muzzleloader and was wondering how they handle recoil. Are the current trophy scopes made in Japan? Which would be better, a simmons 44 mag or a bushnell trophy?

Sorry I
don't have any experience with the simmons. The trophy will do just fine on
a muzzleloader where the recoil is not as sharp as a 308. I have a Bushnell
trophy that I got about 6 months ago a 4x12x40 with AO and yes it is still
made in Japan. Like I said my son shoots that 338 mag with a banner and that
is a kicking SOB. Not sure where the Banner is made. I will have to ask him.

Hi there,
I own several Bushnell Trophy scopes. Actually all of my scopes are Bushnell Trophy with the exception of 2. A Bushnell Elite & a Simmons ATV. They are awsome scopes for the money & for the type of shooting I do. I really love the Trophy series scopes. I would much rather have A Trophy than a Simmons. To answer your question about putting one on a muzzleloader I have had a 3x9x40 Trophy on my Knight MK95 converted to Disc Extreme for 3 years. I do a lot of shooting with it, it holds up great & holds zero probably as good or better than any other scope I would dare to put on a muzzleloader (price wise). Who wants to beat up a $400.00 to $500.00 scope on a black powder gun? Go for it you cant go wrong with a Trophy and you won't regret it.

I have a knight also. I hear a lot of good things about the simmons stuff, and mixed views on the bushnells. Honestly, I would've already bought the simmons, but I want a 40mm objective scope on the muzzleloader for profile. I ususally fire a 150 grain magnum charge.

Get the trophy 1.75-4x42, great little scope for a muzzle loader or slug gun. I have one on both. Haven't any trouble yet. I have a friend that has one as well with no troubles

If you don't want the circle X reticle they have a 1.75-5x32 that doesn't have it, just regular duplex cross hair.

Not a bad scope for 100 dollars retail.
