BSA airgun scopes

Postby Loki_762 » Thu Dec 21, 2006 11:53 pm

Has anyone here had any experience, positive or negative, with the BSA airgun scopes? I just have a Daisy Powerline on my Shadow right now, and unfortunately, in order for the target and the crosshairs to both be in focus at the same time, I need to adjust the level of magnification, which sucks when I am trying to get a more precise shot in. I REALLY want something with an adjustable objective, so I don't have to deal with this. I have noticed that I see the BSA scopes on a few different springers, and I am wondering if this is because they are good, or if it is because they are cheap. I am not looking for a super scope - I am a bit strapped for cash right now. but I definitely want something with an AO. Any thoughts on this line of scopes?
Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris,
I have a BSA 8-32 X 40 Contender on my Talon SS. clarity is not bad at all. You know the most expensive scope I have is a Nikon UCC 6-20X44 AO. $450 dollars. Its great. But I wouldnt spend that kind of money again.

My BSA , Tasco scopes all work just fine for me.

not every single one of every thing is great - like every now and then - you will come across a mongled pellet in amonst the others

Have you checked out leapers????? Check out cheaperthandirt.com web site, its a real web site I have bought from them a few times and they are great. I got my leapers 6-24x50mm scope for $80 and it works great. I have a leapers on my patriot and have a alot of rounds through it and not a problem with the scope.I highly recommend them. Check out that site they also sell high end scopes cheap, they sell like 30 different brands of scopes.

Ive got a BSA .22 special 4x32 on my Lightning XL and its been workin great!! A buddy of mine bought it used for 15 dollars and had it on his Stingray for a long time!! Ive been using it for awhile and works great on the XL, its small and compact and the clarity isnt bad either!!!

Is a Lightning XL a springer? I am looking for something that is going to hold up under the duress of the springer recoil.
Thanks,
Chris
