I am hoping that some of you experts out there will help me with suggestions for what I call my .,*-mart Tactical Rifle.Bear with me here is the story.

I was at a Mart store  before they stopped selling guns in Kalifornia (Correct Spelling)and noticed a Savage 10fp rifle in .223 for an incredible price. under $350.00 out the door.It sat for a while in the safe unused for a while. Recently I got the modification bug again and started looking around for bargain parts at variuos auctions and ended up with the following, keeping with the budget theme.

 

Savage 10fp .223 ($350.00)

Choate Folding Sniper Stock ($100.00 bucks at auction)

Badger Ordnance Tactical Bolt Knob (25.00 at auction)

Fuller Mount ($50.00 at auction)

Fuller Rings ($60.00 Auction)

I decided to go the compact route and ended up cutting the barrel to 16.25" and threading it 1/2-28 and installing a Smith Enterprise Vortex Flash hider. I temorarily mounted a Smimmons 44 mag 6.5-20x illuminated mil dot reticle scop on it and it is a shooter. However the Simmons scope is o.k. I do not think that the optics are up to par of the rest of the rifle. I have a total of about $650.00 in the rifle and am very happy with it. I would like any suggestions for a scope to compliment my "Pocket Rocket" rifle. I have one of the old Super Sniper scopes on a Rem 700pss and well, I must have gotten one of the poorer models. (Bought it in 1998 I believe) Nothing wrong with it, just seems optically inferior to even my Bushnell 3200 Elite 10x mildot scope. Any Suggestions for  a sub $500.00 scope for this less than 300 yard rifle????

 

Thanks,

 

Gunner

How about a new Super Sniper??

Or a Nikon Buckmaster mildot if you want a variable.

 

Sounds like a nice rifle!! Even if it is a "blue light special". 

 

Welcome to OT!! Good story!

Thanks for the reply, I did not even know that Nikon made a lower cost mildot scope. I will look into it. I am not saying that another super sniper is out of the question. I just think that the optical clarity on my 1998 era Tasco S.S. isn't any better than my Simmons 44mag 6.5-20x illuminated mildot scope that I picked up new in the box for $79.00. It maybe a better scope overall but with the simmons at 10x compared to the SS I can actually see the 100 yard taget clearer with the simmons. I hope this doesn't get anybody mad at me....... I know the mechanics of the simmons is  inferior to the Super Sniper but I actually prefer to shoot the Simmons over the Tasco. I am hoping that either the new Supers are drastically better. Then I would consider one. Anyone else have any ideas????

I just returned from the range after putting a couple of boxes of ammo through my "Blue Light Tactical rifle" and really like the darned thing. The Darned Simmmons 44 mag scope isn't bad at all, I just do not trust it enough to survive a drop or bet the sucess of a hunting trip on the way it constructed. While at the range I was lucky enough to do a side by side examination of my 1998 model super sniper and on of the new models. On my scope the optics are always a little fuzzy. No matter how you adjust it, It always seems a little off. The New SWFA version I used on a FAL Carbine was crisp and clear. Much better than my older scope. I wonder if my scope just needs to be repaired??? Also the new models turrets seemed much crisper too. I think that I may just try another Super Sniper. I sure wish that they made a variable (hint, Hint!!!)
