Default BSA Sweet 22 scope question

having zero experience with one of these thought I would ask here...looking at a BSA sweet 22 BDC 6 by 18 by 40 scope..comes with 2 extra BDC turrents for the 32-36 gr bullet as well as one for the 40gr..be used for just target shooting at the club..maybe the occasional ground hog or prairie dog..does the low price reflect low quality?..anyone actually used one?..

BSA scopes are your average Chinese made scope. They're kinda dark at the higher power settings, at least all of mine are. Generally, they funtion well enough on a rimfire rifle.

I had a BSA Sweet 17 for my 17 HMR, and had to return it. Wouldn't hold zero. That's been about 5 years ago.

I have several BSA Sweet 22s; 3-9x40 (two turret style from Sportsman's Guide, somewhere around $35).

Mine keep a zero just fine, and work well with Remington 40x and Kimbers. Keeps zero well enough to pop 4" clays (and pieces thereof) at 200 yards, or small holes at 50 yards.

BSA= Better Stay Away.
You have a 50/50 chance of getting a keeper.

I purchased a BSA Platinum 36 x 44 from Natchez about a month ago. For $60, it can't be beat. I think that if you are going to go the cheap route, fixed power is the way to go. I'm happy with my purchase, but then again, I also get off by kicking ****** at the 100 yd. rimfire matches out at the club, knowing that I spent 1/8th what a lot of the guys spend on their setups. Rusty Kimber FTW!

Here's a shot of the BSA Platinum mounted on my Kimber. I shot 397/400 (27x) in the 100 yd. match on July 3rd in the Unlimited Class. I took 2nd place in the iron class 391/400 with my other Kimber.
