The Nikon Bushmaster 6x18x40 with side focus is a great little scope for arroundThanks for the help guys.. another question is what would be a good long range scope to put on a .223. like i said i dont have a whole lot of extra money to spend so i guess whats the best deal i can get.gun)
To stay in line with your question, since you are putting it on a "cheap" rifle, thus cheap scope for a cheap rifle - then I say deal.
I hate to sway your decision...But a sponsor here...CameraLand still has Vortex Viper 6.5-20X by 50mm target dot scopes for $279...on sale. I purchased one of these scopes a while back for one of my AR's. These are amazing scopes for the $$$. I think this would spank the BSA in all categories!
