Is there a decent scope for under $150.00??

Im looking to rescope my Mini-14 .223 Ranch Rifle. I do not want to spend a whole lot on it (its not the most accurate rifle anyway). Do you have any suggestions on a budget 3-9 x 40???

There are a lot of scopes for under $150.00 that will work very nicely on a .223. It doesn't have the recoil shock the big calibers do, so even scopes made by BSA will work. I have a BSA 6-24X50 Mil Dot Target model on my 17HMR and so glad I got it. It is a great scope for that rifle. Would put it on my 300WSM, but I'm not worried about the low recoil of the 17HMR.

Ranch Rifle

1. How bout a used Leupold. They have a lifetime guarantee and there are always some available at gun shows. Since everybody is wanting huge objectives and matte finish, I notice that gloss finish 3.5 x 10 x 42 are very available.

2. On accuracy. You can send the trigger assembly to www.greatwestgunsmithing.com and for about 50 bucks they will take the trigger from the factory 5.5 lbs to a little over 3 lbs.

brownie is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
Mini 14

I have owned Mini-14's for 30 years and the biggest problem about scope is the mounts. Most of the older models have to use a B-square scope mount. These will lossen up after a while. It is hard to keep the scope zeroed in. Are the newer models drilled and tapped? If not you would be better off getting a peep sightto replace the factory v-notch rear sight. Mini-14's aren't usually accurate for very long distances for most parts.

I bought a BSA air rifle specific scope and haven't been tremendously impressed, but I also got screwed on the scope from a local gun dealer...I should have done my homework first.

I think a simmons might be a good bet, like some others have said here. I've had a simmons 3-10X44 on a .243 for 12 years or so, and it's been a good scope, especially for the price, which was around $135.

I bought a Bushnell cheapo scope (3x9) at Academy and mounted it to my Marlin 30/30 (which has some kick). It has been accurate (I haven't had to re-tighten and the crosshairs haven't moved around). The scope costs a whopping $28.
