Well,  I purchased a used rifle with a BSA Platinum Target 8-whatever on it, and figured out why the gun would not hit a bull in the butt standing in the barn with the bull.
BSA= CRAP! The scope dont work for crap! And its on a 204 Ruger! Sight it in and everythings great until the nest shot. Then you better start all over.Mad

I have since been informed that the newer BSA's have been "improved". Well What say you all? If you ask me, What can you do to improve a turd?

If you are on a budget there are decent budget scopes out there.  There is no compelling reason to ever buy a BSA, that I can think of.

How much money are you willing to spend? What magnification range and usage are you considering.

The Nikon Buckmaster is a good choice it will serve you well I have a 6x18x40 BDC SF and really like it. I agree with you on the BSA, for me never again...........

Now now that BSA sweet 17 2-7 looks impressive when mounted on a wall hanger. Great visually just poor everything else. They have a neat appearanceyou have to give them that.

 Look at it this way ... they say it's free .... at $1.00 for a candy bar .... what do folks think they'll get for free ?  And plus I love the guys'  remarks " it looks good on my rifle " .... a naked 22 year old girl looks good sitting on my rifle .... it even makes her squirm .... Chair%20Hit
