Scopes On Sale, Any Good?

Recommended Posts

I got my Midway flyer today and had a couple of scopes in it that are in my price range. I would like to know if either of these are good. If not please let me know what would be a good scope brand that is in this price range that will hold up well.

 

Simmons "Whitetail Classic Scope" 6.5-20x 50mm Mildot on sale for $124.99

Barska 6-24x 42mm with a 18-36x Spotting scope for $99.99

 

Thanks

I seen that several of you had good success with China scopes from ebay. I tried searching for them but couldn't find any that were talked about. Would any of you be willing to let me know who you bought your china scopes from?

I have a couple of Simmons, Happy with both. Friend (kid of 16yr) took his apart to see what made it tick. 2 yr later he asked me if I could fix it. Told him yeah right when pigs fly. Suggested he send it back for lifetime warranty, which he did. 2 weeks later it was back and good as new,(no charge). Can't beat that.

 

I have no knowledge of the Barska's

Wow. Sounds like Simmons makes some pretty good scopes. Thanks for all the feed back.

 

Any other scope brands that don't break the bank you guys like?
