simmons scope
« on: September 20, 2007, 07:58:45 AM »
Glad we have an optics discussion here, know i will get some honest opinions
Just purchase a 25-06 ulra handi used, have not received it yet, reported to be fired very little
comes with a Simmons 8830 pro 50 2.5x10x50 scope. i have heard not much good about these scopes, have never owned one. Please tell me what you know.
what would you suggest for a varmint/deer rifle, with out taking out a loan, say 250.00-300.00

Texas is good for men and dogs, but it is hell on women and horses.

I have 4 or the Simmons Whitetail Classics scopes and one of the new 3x9x40 Master Series Pro Hunter scopes. Excellent optics and have held up so far.

Only Simmons scope I have ever owned was a 44 mag ,and it worked without any problem. sold it with the rifle last year and the guy who bought it is still useing it and no problem . in you case I would use it and see if it is good enough for your purpose. if it works great if not you can replace it .

Untill today I would have recommended simmons.   NOT now.  I had a whitetail classic go bad. The guy told my that I needed a original recipt to get it fixed. I bought the scope 4 years ago, no recipt saved, no fixed.

    I have never had any problem with simmons service before, and never will agian, when it breaks throw it away and buy Leupold.

    I WILL NEVER buy simmons, tasco, weaver, redfield or any other covered by MEADE optic.
