I would like to find a quality, lightweight, 1”, 4 x 12 x 40mm, matte finish scope with side parallax adjustment for my 17 HMR. Any suggestions? Thanks…

If I was going to put a scope on a 17 I might get:

17312X40 BSA 3-12x40 Sweet 17 Riflescope BSA 3-12x40 Sweet 17 Riflescope
  • Matte
  • Plex
  • 1"
  • Adjustable Objective
  • Waterproof
  • Fogproof
  • Shockproof
  • 100 to 250 yards Bullet drop precisely calculated to compensate for the elliptic drop of a .17 grain 17HMR bullet
SWFA: $89.95

Now I'm not saying it is a top quality scope but for a .17 cal it is an interesting scope that will compensate for bullet drop. OR If you really want a top quality scope we can point you toward something else. Zeiss should have some one inch tube scopes with side parallax adjustment almost everything else is 30mm tubes.

I had a BSA sweet 17 on my first 17hmr...sold it within 5 days...its absolutley useless at night or low light ..the only saving grace was the built in BDC for the round.

 

Ask yourself what your going to use this rifle for? Rabbit and Fox, most are shot at night...where you need half decent optics.

 

Im using a s/h Hungarian 8x56 S&B which i paid $300 for (Ł225 in the UK)

 

What im hearing a lot of on here is the S Sniper does well as a good all rounder, but ive never used one so i cant truely give it a thumbs up vote to be honest

Chris shipped me a 71-3510 Bushnell Banner 17 Super 3.5-10 X 36mm. It's AO will focus down to 10 yards and is bright and clear as a bell from side to side and top to bottom. Looks great on my little Ruger Model 96 .17HMR Level rifle. Pictures on request.

BSA makes motorcycles not optics.

Listen to the experts ......

Umm not wishing to apear perdantic, but BSA actually have a tradition of manufacturing rifles longer than anything else. Infact from the 1820's onwards

The Sweet 17 is one of the branded import thingies from BSA and if i remember correctly its a Chinese import ....urrrgghhh
