Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I've put this scope on a 10/22 and it has performed as it should. Holds zero pretty well, may have to adjust 1 or 2 clicks after storing it in a gun case but nothing that surprising. Can keep a 1.5 inch, give or take, group at 100 yards. Good eye relief, clicks are noticeable. Each grain adjustment knob is a huge plus and the markings are true, if you remember to use them. Can't beat it for the price. Only gripes are that it doesn't come with rings, and should include the allen-key to remove the knob.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value for the money Good scope but difficult to set windage. Realized that the windage turret was loose and needed tightening. Once sighted in very accurate at 50 yds. Haven't tried at longer distances but expect good results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for... I bought two of these for each of my son's .22's – one a Marlin 925R and the other a Mossberg Intl. 802 “Plinkster”. Each scope zeroed quickly and has held zero for the 5 years they’ve been on each rifle. Optical imagery is crisp and ever-so-slightly tinted due to coatings. Low-light situations do not appear to be effected by the coatings in case you’re wondering.Initial setup with the turrets was a little dicey simply because of my own stupidity – not setting the distance graduations properly. Once that was corrected, my only mistake was forgetting to rotate the turret based on distance, but the turrets are fully functional and accurate when I remember to use them. The AO ring does help reduce parallax error at high magnifications, but frankly is just “fluff” in my opinion and for our purposes, but it’s still a nice addition to have.Both rifles are shooting a dime @ 50 and a quarter at 100 – MORE than adequate for squirrels and general plinking, and both rifle/scope combinations have provided plenty of squirrels for the pot. Frankly, I’m getting ready to purchase another one of these for my 10/22.Several folks have had issues with the scopes, specifically the reticle rotating and the turret set screws being too tight, but that hasn’t been my experience, and for approximately $50.00 it’s hard to go wrong. BSA is a low/mid-tier optics manufacturer but for those of us on a budget they provide a viable solution.Bottom line, I’m very pleased with the performance of this scope especially for the price. When I put one on my 10/22 I"ll follow-up...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from sweet 22 rifle scope so far I like the scope but it did not come with mounts witch adds to the cost and is a pain to look up all scopes should come with mounts

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money. I purchased this scope fore my Ruger 10/22. Installed it and used a couple of bubble levels to make sure that the scope was squared to the receiver then used a bore sighter to get it ruffed in. When I got to the range and looked through the scope I noticed that the retical had shifted. When I started to shoot the retical started to rotate counter clock wise. When I got home it went in the trash. First and last BSA scope that I'll ever buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the Price I have had one of these for 6 years with no problems until it got out of adjustmentand wouldn't adjust back. Otherwise I like the scope.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for .22 long rifle Great for long rifle needs to come with scope rings. They are sold separately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good functionality outweighs negatives This is a follow up review after owning this scope for 3 years and putting hundreds of rounds downrange with it on at least 2 different rifles. Here are my findings, good and bad:Bad first: 1. The turrets are attached to the elevation adjustment knob with tiny set screws. The design flaw was choosing too small of a set screw. The amount of force required to loosen the factory-tightened set screw was enough to strip the hex socket on two of the three tiny screws. BSA customer service refused to send new set screws to replace the ones that I stripped using the factory supplied allen wrench to loosen from their factory tightened position. Dicks made up for it by supplying set screws at no cost to me, but that will never change the fact that the hex strips too easily.2. BDC turrets can't be accurate without both weight and velocity data for each one. The included turrets only had weight data. Include velocity data on the turret and this is no longer a complaint.The good: 1. The scope holds zero.2. AO works nicely, although the range indicated is not consistent with the actual range. Regardless, if the target and crosshair are both in focus, parallax should be about 0 and that is the point of AO.3. The optics are clear. I'm not going to claim to be an expert in optic clarity, but I will testify that what I see is clear.Summary: I think the BDC turrets are a gimmick that doesn't really add value. The turret set screws are not big enough, but you might be able to handle it if you are very careful. Don't plan on using the turrets to compensate for range (just zero the gun and don't mess with it) and you won't have to change turrets. Overall, the fact that the scope holds zero and the AO works and the optics are clear is enough to outweigh any negatives about this scope. I would buy another if it goes on sale. Even at full price it's a bargain. I would have given it 5 stars if BSA customer service was better. Dicks customer service was great. If BSA redesigned to eliminate the turrets, and made the elevation adjust the same way the windage does then this scope would be perfect. If they really have to have some form of BDC, do it in the crosshair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product well worth the money My 10 year old ordered this for his new Rugger 10/22 he got for Christmas. It arrived in just a few days and was a perfect fit.
