Default Target scope deal alert: Simmons 6.5-20x50 mil-dot AO for $125 at Midway

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/168...ProductDescrip

I just bought one for my AR2078 CO2 rifle. Never had a "proper" target scope before. It may be too big and heavy for me, we'll see.

One guy said this scope looks as good as Zeiss and Leupold. That's not to say it's built as well, but it is some high praise indeed.

Update: This scope is AWESOME. I just drilled two sparrow from my balcony at 25 yds. It is nice and clear, even at 20x. Weighs a lot less than the Hawke 4.5-14x42 30mm side focuse scope I had on the Marauder previously.

The reticle may be too thick for some target shooters, but the 20x magnification goes a long way toward making it a non-issue. It is nowhere near as thick as the reticles of Leapers Bugbusters.

It is too bad Simmons doesn't have other scopes in this series.

I've read some good things about the 44 Mag series too, but don't have any experience with them.

A buddy of mine has a 44 mag scope and loves it. I have not tried it yet.
