I found a listing on Ebay from a company called A-1 optics. They say that they have made optics for the military since the 50's but i have never herd of them.

I think I may have seen that listing also, some time ago, and found it hysterical. The features that they claimed that their scope could do and that other major name brands couldn't was pure insanity.

 

I actually thought it would be funny to post their advertisement on this board, so we could all get a good laugh.

 

It's just a guess, but I would bet some company has used a Chineese Optic manufacturer to OEM a crappy scope and in the same breath claim that the same optics company also makes major name brand scopes. Hoping, of course, that you will think your getting some quality scope at a great deal. Actually, there's a good chance that the name brand scopes that this Chinees company makes are crap too.

 

Spend some time reading the old post. You'll learn a ton about scopes from alot of very experienced people. (myself not included) You'll need to spend some money to get really good optics, but it will be worth it in the long run.

  I Have a A1 optics scope in 4x16x50.I put it on a ruger 1022 target.I was like you I seen the scope on ebay and bid on it.I thought how good can this scope be for 75.00 but when the scope came in I was surprised.no its not a leupold or even a bushnell elite.but I would say its worth the money.If you need a cheap scope to put on small cal. rifle to shoot at the range IT WILL DO THE JOB.It might handle a higher cal. recoil but I dont know I havnt tried yet.

MontanaElk,

 

I've been following your post and It looks like your trying to get the best scope for you budget. You just bought a brand new 300 mag. The last thing you want to do is put a crappy scope on it. I really recommend that you start a new thread and tell everyone what gun your putting it on. What your shooting range and conditions are and the maximum money you can spend. Even if it's under $100, you will quickly learn from many, which ones are dependable and which are crap.

 

Good luck!

 

PS. For under $100 the Bushnell Banner is one scope that gets recommended alot.

 I do alot of internet research and A1 may not be a big name yet with the limited time they have been available to the public but more reviews are sure to show up. Ever heard of Mueller or Swift rifle scopes? Not the most expensive scopes but just how disciminating is the human eye. No guts no glory. Both the rifle scope companys above are getting good reviews and competition is what makes the USA great.
