thinking of a better scope for my brno model 2

Postby Zzr1100 » Wed Apr 23, 2014 12:36 pm

currently i have a hawke 3-9 x50 on the rifle and although im getting ok results i feel the rifle is better than the scope,
my budget is £150 max ... new i could get another hawke or a nikko sterling .. any other suggestions ??.
on the second hand front a friend may be selling a leupold 4-12x ? .... for £150 a good option perhaps ?

I must have spent a fortune over the years on various cheaper scopes and now in my dotage I've made the decision only to buy decent scopes. Over a period my old scopes have been replaced with two Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5 to 16 on my gallery rifles, a Sightron 10 to 50 on my 308 and a Sightron x36 mag on my .22 benchrest. I've had a Leopold 8 to 25 LR on my 223 for a while and I had a Leica 3.5 to 14 until my son pinched for his 10/22.

My advice would be to wait, save some more money and buy some quality glass for the rifle. A good scope will last a life time and see you through any upgrade or change of rifle.

Agree with Keith re the Sightron. Excellent scopes which, for some strange reason, are very underated.

If it's a rimfire the hawke scope you have got are a very good scope they are clear enough and hold zero I don't no if yours is PA adjustable but I'd want PA on a rimfire to be honest I'd stay as u are
