Re: Millett 6-25X56 30 mm Tube

Moosehunter, Was it a BSA? I'm sorry but I'd never trust a scope made in China, no offence Mike, maybe it's not as bad as a BSA, but it's made in China for cripe sakes, brother-in-law went over there to see if he wanted to put a factory for his plastics business there, no !u%&#&$ way, it's a bloody third world country. Sucks over there. Check out some of the reviews on BSA scopes on the Midway website, one guy says "it's as bright as my Leupold and repeatable too", rate it 5 stars, the guy down on the bottom rates it 1 star cuz " I took one shot and it spilled it guts" You guys can try'em but I wouldn't trust'em on anything over a 22 Mag. IT'S MADE IN CHINA [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] J

Nope not BSA. Now that I recall it was a Futong.

Re: Millett 6-25X56 30 mm Tube

Jay, You really shouldn't sit on the fence on this Chinese made scope issue! Just kidding. I tried a few BSA scopes a few years ago without problems, but traded them off because they were not as bright to look through as the Burris BD scopes I started using. I think I was lucky because their workmanship was not really impressive. They worked ok, but seemed cheaper than they cost. Millett quality seems much better than a BSA, Bushnell lower level scopes or Tasco. Not a Leupold, Burris or NF by any stretch, but pretty good for a budget priced scope so far. The Milletts may eventually be replaced too once I am able to reach my goal of owning a NightForce or they fall apart! My new projects/plans are my Sav 12fvss in 270WSM and a future purchase of a 308WIN heavy barrel. I will add an NF or other high quality glass to them and really start serious long range shooting. In the meantime, I will try to get my money out of the Millets by learning how to use Mil Dots better and shooting as many prairie rats as possible.

Mike

Hey, I just gut done shooting this Millett 6-25x56 on a light(7 Lbs.) 300 Win Mag and it held together and adjusted accurately. Again all the adjustments were perfect. Move it 4 inches up & 2 inches to the left and the point of impact moves precisely. You've got to love it. The only other scopes I own that do that on regular basis are Nightforces. More to come.

I have to agree with Jay. Not only would I not buy a scope made in China but we should not support its repressive government either. Leupold or Burris. No foreign stuff. I had duke it out with Jay on Leupold vs. Burris BD. But I like Oregon & Coloroda. Leupold & Burris. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Millett 6-25X56 30 mm Tube

I have been shooting a Millet 8x 25 with mil dots for about 2 months on a Win Coyote in 300 WSM. Seems to be a lot of scope for the money. No NF or Leupold but very good for under $200. I had the duplex first but the coatings were spotted, sent it back and they sent me the mil dot. No problems with adjustments or anything and it has held up. However it is big!!
