Re: What brand of scope do you prefer
Burris Timberline scopes are the best little scopes for the money, and are versatile from air rifle, rimfires, black rifles to mountain rifles. 4.5-14x32 AO is the best value in its class, and I have it on my CZ 452 American. I have the 3-9x32 on my FN FAL. Klingon tough and Vulcan logical. Highly affordable. They are not a rebranded outsourced product.
More expensive scopes really depend on your preferences and use. However, the Burris Timberline scopes are really in a league of their own. They are not made by OLW in Japan as are many other value oriented scopes such as Vortex, Sightron, Weaver, Bushnell Elite.....all of which are OLW built.
