Q&D, I recently bought a Howa 1500 Supreme Varmint in .22-250 caliber, and just picked it up tonight. With any luck (hiding it somehow from my wife), I will pick up the S&W 6-24x42 scope within the next week, after I find a way to pay for it.
Are you saying this is an elcheapo scope? I'm just getting back into shooting after an absence of 25 years. I thought this was a pretty decent piece of glass when I put my money down.
Please elaborate on your evaluation of this scope. I realize that according to opinions expressed here, I did not choose wisely regarding the brand of rifle I bought or the caliber, but I got a pretty good deal on this rig and bought it to introduce my sons to the shooting sports.
The Howa is as pictured and in unfired condition. It came with Nikon scope bases and rings, still in the bags, for $425.00.
As I have already stated, I paid $219.00 for the S&W 6-24x42 scope. I guess I won't know if this was a good deal until I get to shoot it.
