Hello All,

I was thinking of buying a Bushnell sharpshooter scope (3-9) to put on my Steven 200 (3006)

Any Thoughts? I have an old Tasco 4x on it at the moment.

Thanks,

Jim

Here's what Ken Marsh has to say about it, the article is a bit dated tho, but I wouldn't expect a lot from a $40 scope. :-\

I've had two Bushnell Sportviews and one Bushnell Sharpshooter, all in 3x-9x32mm. All three had considerable adjustment increment problems. One would reverse a bit during large windage adjustments. After having one repaired I tested it and saw a large disparity between the adjustment increment through the middle (~1MOA) versus near the extremes (~1/8MOA). I gave it to a friend to put on a .22 (which he enjoys but never adjusts), and retired the other two.
