Anyone tried one of the new Aetec scopes? The ad I read sounds interesting. Anyone gonna try one. If they are all that is promised, could be a bargain for under $200. Interested in opinions and what they will compare to.

I've yet to talk to anybody that has laid their hands on one.

I purchased a Remington Sendero (7mm STW) that had a Simmons Aetec 6x20. Somewhere the AO or maybe one of the internal lenses went south.

 

At 80 yards the scope would not show a half inch black circle on a white pie plate.

 

I sent it to Simmons asking for a replacement scope in 14-16 power and was sent back a Weaver Classic V16.

 

What made the scope go bad? Abuse? The scope had a nick on the top out by the objective lens. What came apart inside? I wish Technicians when repairing scopes would let us know what is wrong.

Was it a "new" Masters Series Aetec or the older version?

6x20 I think was an older one. I don't think they make the 6x20 anymore in an Aetec.
