good or bad??? Well let me put it like this --- that is not a lot of money to be betting someones life on.  Do they have a use - sure they do.   Would I take it to work on a duty gun - no.  Would I take it to war - no.   Would I put it on some rifle I didnt have a scope on until I could buy a better scope - sure why not.   I find the 4x fixed to be particularly interesting as fixed power scopes tend to be quit rugged.  If you really need a tactical scope and peoples lives depend on what you do with it be thinking Super Sniper.

I have a couple friends who use the 1.5-5x versions.  One on an AR, the other an AK variant.  So far they have held zero and served their purpose.  Glass quality is so so.  But for a day time plinking scope I think they would be fine.

Personally I would get a Weaver or Leupold rimfire scope if it were me.  They will be more sleek for the small gun.  That 1.5-5x Sightron is a big 30mm scope, with massive variable eye relief.  Unless you are planning on making sight adjustments all the time, which if that is the plan I would get a scope that is a little more proven track record of reliable adjustments.

You could also go this way.  I am personally not a fan of BSA scopes, but I have heard people say that these work pretty well.  http://swfa.com/BSA-Sweet-17-Riflescopes-C47.aspx

I tend not to think of a 17 hmr as a tactical rifle. It could benefit from some target knobs but unless you have adjustable parallax (side focus, rear focus, front parallax) the scope will be set for a parallax of 100 yds more than likely unless it is a rimfire scope. The 2-7x28 Weaver is a very nice rimfire scope.  Want a real tactical scope ont the 17 put a Super Sniper on it.
