    I'm doing some research on the quality of pistol scopes. I plan to use this scope (probably a 3-9) on a Magnum Research 45-70 BFR, Rem XP-100 in .308, and a .454 Casull.

    Is the optical quality of a Thompson Center as good as the Leupolds and Burris scopes?

    Thank you.

    I wouldn't worry as much about optical qualities as construction - outsourced scopes tend to vary significantly from lot to lot, year to year. Understand that T/C just had a batch of bummers come over from the orient, but the company will make things right. Bottom line, you get what you pay for (pretty much anyhow) and there is a significant difference in the cost of these scopes.
