Sun Optics CS2783250 Tactical Riflescope, 8-32x 50mm


So I scoped my stainless 10/22 with a Sun Optics 8-32x50mm "Tactical" rifle scope.  Here's a link to it on amazon.com however the product is not the one pictured:

The specs say :

Features of Sun Optics TAC III 8-32x Riflescope:

  • Precision ground, fully multi-coated lenses with wide band coating
  • Locking return to zero target turrets
  • Dry nitrogen filled
  • Sunshade included
  • Mil-dot reticle
  • Sharp edge-to-edge clarity at every power
  • Zoom ratio up to 4X magnification
  • Black satin finish
  • Waterproof
  • Shockproof
  • Fogproof
  • Side Parallax





However.....when I opened the box, the scope was not like the one pictured with the exposed windage and elevation turrets, but for $150, it's hard to complain.













I took the rifle out to Squamish to zero and do some plinking and discovered that the magnification is pretty blurry beyond 25x and no occular or paralax adjustment could fix it.  So the 25x-32x range of no use to anyone on this earth.

I guess it's not really a deal breaker because again, it was only $150.  This "tactical" rifle scope will suffice for plinking up to 100m.  Haha, "tactical".....the only thing ninja about this scope is the "made in China" marking, which was nowhere to be found.  I'm pretty sure it was made there though.
