Re: Simmons 6.5-20x50
I bought one several years ago to use on my first mauser build. I needed a varmint type scope and didnīt have much to spend at the time. It is a decent scope for what it is.
Other than zeroing it, I have not adjusted it very much so I canīt comment on repeatability. Optical clarity was decent. Absent mirage conditions, the entire magnification range is usable. The AO works well, just donīt pay attention to the distance markings. The outside diameter of the objective is HUGE, so the scope has to be mounted pretty high. This is a big, heavy scope.
Because of its size, weight, and how high I had to mount it, I ultimately replaced it with a BSA tactical scope from Midway. The BSA wonīt impress anyone at the range when I uncase my rifle (for that matter, neither will my rifle) but I really like it.
