A fellow shooter at my club has had good luck with a 2-7x32 airgun scope from BSA on his 77/22. In fact, wins more than anyone else at our weekly fun matches.

Being as I have been looking for a good 50' scope that will also work for 50yds (and not having much luck) I decided to try one of these. It was $48 from Midway.

I sighted in in last night on my Romanian .22 and I am pretty impressed. The overall quality seems to be decent- it is attractive and fit and finish is good. Target knobs work fine, as does the AO. Scope is clear and crisp at 2x-5x, declining a little at 6x-7x but still quite useable (remember, this is 50'). Groups were best at lower power, but this may be me. Best groups were about 1/4" (one hole of course) with Wolf MT which is about as good as I can expect anyway. So, thus far the BSA seems to be okay and well worth the $$, but we will see in time.

I am wondering what other experiences folks have had with airgun scopes? I was thinking about getting the Bushnell 3-9x32AO as well but it costs $20 more and is glossy.

Anything to watch out for (specifically) on the BSA? I've heard the horror stories but nothing about the airgun scopes in particular.

hi penguin,

have'nt really had a chance to use it yet, but I just bought a Gamo Hunter 220 it came with a BSA scope on it. I took the scope off (due to the fact that I prefer open sites on my air rifles) and put the scope and rings on my sons cz scout 22. I've heard the horror stories about BSAas well, but I guess we'll see, given that the scope and rings were basically free, I'm hopefull:p if it does'nt, at least the rings are off good quality and very sturdy:t

Scopes are designated airgun scopes because they are able to stand the sharp front-back recoil. They are also able to adjust the parallax to shorter distances, like 15 yards. The parallax is still adjustable out to infinity, however.

I have an outstanding Bushnell "Airgun scope" on my 30'06. Very bright optics. Got it at SWFA.

I have a 6-18X40 Simmons Airgun Silhouette scope mounted on a 52B Winchester Sporter. It works very well--for me it doesn't focus as well above 12 power with my glasses on--although it's very good below 12 power. However, if I take off my glasses it focuses well at the higher powers. I can't blame the scope for my bad eyesight!! It's a good scope and I like it--I paid 'bout 100 bucks for it from SWFA several years ago.

I have a Tasco 3-12X airgun scope on my 10/22T and it does a great job! When I bought the rifle at a local gunshow it had a BSA 4X airgun scope on it but I wanted more than 4X for target work. Both scopes are very clear and the adjustments work good too. Best of all the Tasco was $59.99 at Midsouth's
