Re: Millet?

I had one of the first millet 6-25 by 56 mm about a year or two ago. Outside apperance looked good but glass not up to par,tracking was just terrible. I hope I just got a bad one but thats the last millet I will buy.

Bushnell Banner

Found a Bushnell Banner 6-18x50 w/target knobs for $120 shipped NIB. Has anyone had any experience with this scope?

Re: Bushnell Banner

I had one and it was okay but it was not repeatable.

Still for the money the buckmasters cant be beat.

Re: Bushnell Banner

echo5hotel,i went down the same road with many things and went the "cheap" way including scopes and it wound up costing me more than if i had saved some money and bought quality "stuff" to begin with.the tracking of the cheaper bushnell,bsa,tasco etc target scopes can be pretty bad.i have a nikon buckmaster 6-18-40 target knobs.paid 289 for it about 3 months ago.
