A friend wanted to know if Osprey scopes are any good. I don't have any experience nor have I ever heard of them so I thought I'd ask here.
He is looking at a 4-12x50 Osprey, that I believe he said sells for about $250 and is supposed to be their high end scopes. Is it a good value for the price, or is it a waist of money?

all reports of real use i've seen have been bad.  He'd be much better off spend that money on something more relable.  In that price range redfields come to mind that have that power range.

I am not sure if there is a difference but I shot a gun this past weekend that had an Osprey International 6-24x50mm with an illuminated Mil-dot. The optical quality was not that bad. I was able to see clear at 300 yards on 15x.
 
This was not my rig but I shot 2 - 5 shot groups. The first was 2 MOA and 2nd measured about 1.75 MOA. I can not speak to its tracking and long term durability.
