Look around and find a Simmons, Weaver, Leapers or whatever you like that will focus down to 25 yards or so(range normally shot by most rimfires). Stay away from Bushnell & Tasco.[/color] Bushnell bought Tasco out of bankruptcy and are only a very small footstep ahead of Tasco - which is JUNK[/color], plain and simple. I have two Bushnell variables that are brand new and basically useless. One is a Trophy 6-18X 40mm #73-6184(the one Bushnell recommends for manum springer air rifles), the other is a Elite 5-15X 40mm #32-5154M and both have the same problem. The power adjustment ring is so hard to move it takes both hands and a considerable amount of effort to change the power setting. I called Bushnell on about this problem and was told the ring would wear in with use and that they wouldnt replace them as nothing was wrong with them. This was over two years ago and they are still in my reloading shed. I take them out every time I go in there and work the setting rings and they are still require two hands to change the power setting. I know a number of other hunters/shooters that have the same complaint with Bushnells.

Actually the BSA air rifle scope is the same size as their rim fire line. Check http://www.bsaoptics.com/productlist.asp?ID=11&Cat_Name=airrifle22.jpg&Cat_Code=AR&Cat_Type=RFAM to see the complete line of BSA Air Rifle approved scopes. A very good value for those seeking scopes for springer type air rifles that are on a budget. I believe you meant the BSA Rimfire Series http://www.bsaoptics.com/productlist.asp?ID=21&Cat_Name=rimfire.gif&Cat_Code=FIR&Cat_Type=RFAM which are only approved for BB type and low powered air rifles.
