When I talk about lemons I'd say well if Leupold has .05 % bad scopes coming off the line. Then Simmons might be at 1%. Where as what I'm getting from you is every
Simmon's will fail on a high power rifle.
I think if I made it to 90 years old and wore out several rifles on this Simmons scope you'd probably be telling me. "Just wait it's going to break any day now!"
I have 4 Simmons scopes 1 that goes on mine and the rest on my kids .22's and have had O problems with them.
Well we're not going to find out if it will hold up in the long run as it's coming off. I did however have it out today and if I can get a 1 shot hit out to 1300yds on a man sized target I'd say it was working pretty good. I can't say that about some of my wind calls today but no problems with the elevation ones..
I thought this was funny. I was shooting today with a guy from work that I'd never shot with before and what does he show up with? His main hunting rifle a .30 06 with a Simmons on top. He said it's been on there for about 10 years with many rounds down range and he was happy with it.
I know 1 .22 scope with 60 or 70 rounds is no scientific study but I believe your more than likely not
going to have a failure with one of these.
Top Gun stop on by when your out here, after a couple of beers we'll have Simmons scopes mounted on all your rifles. We can scratch off the name so you can live with yourself.
