I hate to trash any product but this is one .
I bought my first one for a 17 HMR called a sweet seventeen and it looked like
the perfect one for the little rifle.
After I mounted it I was happy until I shot it. At first I though I had a problem
with the rifle because it would not shoot worth a darn.
And just to verify that was the problem I switched scopes and to my surprise it
hammered out a .326 10 shot group @ 100 yards with the other scope.
So when I realized it was the BSA I looked to see if I could see anything wrong
and just by accident I held the ocular lens and while looking through the scope
saw the cross hairs move.
So I immediately returned it to the store for another one . At the counter I showed
the clerk what the problem was and he said no problem we'll exchange it.
I thought "GREAT" untill I removed the new one from the box and it did the same
thing. (The threads are so lose fitted that if you move the eye piece left to right or
up and down the Point of aim changes even with the scope locked down.
Next I called my brother and had him check his and he had the same problem.
Now the BSA's are less than half the price they were when they first came out
(You think the manufacture knows something ? ).
I have found that any scope less than $250.00 are probably in the junk category.
