    Default Budget Scopes

    Ok, let's say there is a budget problem - or a wife problem actually.... Say R1500 or less...... and say I don't wanna go over a 50mm objective lens.... What would be the best scope for a springer (untuned HW97k) (since Guido doesn't want to post a public "I wanna buy a tuning kit) post...... Got a 32x3-8 Nikko Stirling... looking for something better... urgently!

    Why don't you ask Guido for an AO Leapers scope? Or you want a side wheel? I think within the above price range AO scope is better option.

    I am using a Nikko Stirling 4-12x42 Illuminated ret on mine and it's pretty good match to the rifle. It's not suited for FT but that said there are better rifles for that as well.
    Price wise I think they will be lower than your maximum. If you leave out the illumination I think you can get them for under R1000.

    Thank you Cor,

    I'm a bit wary of the Nikko Stirling's.... Have one and when changing focus the POI shifts....

    Let's see what the Bushnell looks like please? I believe all Bushnell's are shock resistant? Anyone have some good stories (or bad) to tell?

    Thanks!

    Got my new scope this weekend. Not really a budget scope unless you compare it to a swarovski , then maybe.

    I swopped out my s400's Leapers 3-9x40 with my new Nikko Stirling Diamond Sportsman 10-50x60... Very Cool! But now the rifle is starting to get heavy...
