CenterPoint Scopes?

Just wondering.... I was walkin around Walmart the other day and they have these 4-16x40 Mildot Centerpoint scopes, with rings, target turrets, and lense covers for $70....also has a lifetime warrenty

Are these worth the $70? I was thinkin about getting one and mountin it on my new Savage 204 Ruger to get me by until I can get a Leupold or Burris for it.

Than mounting it on a 22lr after I get a quality scope for the 204.

70 bucks for everything WOW! I'm not familiar with Centerpoint so about all I can say is for the money I don't see how there could be IMHO reasonable quality...You usually get what you pay for. Did you look through them...if so what did you think...If not I would and then compare it to some of the high quality name brands.

Re: CenterPoint Scopes?

Couldnt look through them as they are in a plastic wrapped thing. There are good reviews of it on walmart.com...most of those guys probably think they are good because it looks "tactical" and know very little about good optics. I am use to using Burris, Nikon, and Leupold scopes...but on the other hand I have BSA, Bushnell, and Mueller scopes, mostly on 22lrs and Handi Rifles. Figured I would ask here as someone might have one on a 22 or something and be able to give an honest opinion of it, because probably everyone here is a shooter and know something about good glass.

I agree you get what you pay for....but thought maybe these could be the exception?

dk17hmr, I kinda assumed from your first post that scopes may be an area where you may not have alot of knowledge. Since seeing your last post obviously that's not the case...you own quiet a few and a nice variety so I'm sure you know what to look for. Let us know if you eventually are able to look through one of their scopes and your thoughts.

Re: CenterPoint Scopes?

After thinkin about it most of the day, I think I will just save/spend the money on reloading supplies. I am going home for Christmas, I will just snag a scope off one of my rifles still in Michigan.

Still am intersted in hearing anything pro or con about the CenterPoint....future reference.

Re: CenterPoint Scopes?

I bought a Centerpoint 4-16X40 Mildot last Christmas and mounted it on my Ruger 10/22 Target Rifle with good results !!!!! It shoots and maintains Zero at 50yds, with 5-shot groups measuring .250" Good clear glass with repeatable clicks and Zero return, no problems so far !!!!!! A friend of mine bought one and put on his Savage 10 .223 Rem and has had no problems with Repeatability or holding Zero !!!!! Very Good Value for the Buck !!!!!
Hope this helps !!!!!!!!!!!
