Re: How about spotting scopes under $300

I have had a Swift 15x60 for 25yrs. and it is as clear as a friends 1000 dollar scope.
I saw one on Ebay which another friend bought. I recomend it highly.

    I use a Nikon 15-45x spotting scope and have been more than pleased with it. It is super clear from15-45 and the whole unit I bought for $299 with a tripod.

    Yes, that is the one and the price dropped $50! Buyers remorse! I apologize I did not follow this thread earlier.

    I recently found a Cabela's 15x-45x in a pawn shop excellent glass clear up to about 40X then mirage and a little foggy at the edges. Best deal I ever got for $60.00. I found an old Cabelas that lists this spotter at $435.00 new. Moral of the story, don't forget to check the pawn shops. If you find a good quality spotter make them an offer! They generally will only pay 15% of value for optics so they have a lot of room to move on the price. Ya never know.

    I bought one of the Nikon discovery series 15to45X60(made in China) jobs for the fairly high price of $299. Promptly took it out with the local Police Sniper and checked it on bullet holes out to 1 click. It was impossible to tell that the Leupold was better. It cost about 3 times the Nikon. Go figure. I see others here are likewise satisfied. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
