IMO----I would not buy. I have learned that satisfaction only comes with good equipment. Try to upgrade to better quailty of scope if you can afford to. Aslo what are you putting this on?

I would say it depends on what your going to mount it on, how far your trying to shoot, how late your going to try and hunt/shoot. If your going to put it on a 22 rimfire and shoot squirrels with it, I'm sure it would be a great scope. If you plan on putting it on a magnum calibler rifle, and shoot across a beanfield out to say 300 yards, more than likely this scope isn't going to cut it. You get what you pay for, and your going to get 129.00 dollars worth of performance from that scope. I have owned simmons products in the past and it's a hit and miss with them. I had 2 different simmons 44 mags mounted on the same gun at different times, 1 held zero perfectly, the other one bounced all over the place. This was quickly resolved by mounting a leupold vx II on my rifle. I see it like this, If I have a Sako Finbear, worth about 800 bucks, that is a quality firearm, and very capable of great shooting, why would I want to put a low quality scope on top of that. Your firearm will only ever be as good as the glass you mount on it. Just my opinion.
