I know that Simmons discontinued this scope and I was wondering if it has a bad reputation with you guys. I was considering buying a 1.5-6x32 Simmons White tail Exp. for my muzzleloader for $75.oo down at my local gun shop. It is brand new and still in the box. Is it a good buy or should I not waste my money? I want a good bright scope that will hold its aim but not cost too much. Is it worth the money or should I pass it up?

I haven't had good experience with Simmons products, although they do back up the warranty.  I would pass on the Whitetail line.  I would suggest something, but I don't yet have experience with other products either. . .yet.  Good Luck!

Hey Dave, that is a good buy.  The Whitetail Expedition is basically the same scope as the Aetec.  IMO that is why the Expedition didn't have much success, because it was difficult to advertise two scopes of the same quality, and put a higher price on one, over the other.  The Field of view is excellent in both lines, because of the Aspherical lens system, and with the low magnification, that would be a great optic for the woods, or heavy cover.

 

Well worth the money, my friend.

 

Dave
