I have a Vortex Skyline which I bought online for closer to $400 and it's GREAT. Nice optics, lots of light, fairly lightweight, came with it's own bag and table tripod. I highly recommend this scope.

Cornell ornithology department has a new review of scopes out. For $359.00 or less on sale they suggest the Vortex Stokes Sandpiper (15-45x) Check out the whole review. It has really good information. Happy Birding, Dee

Hey Danielle,

For your budget, the best device I know is definitely the Aplen 788. The Vortex Skyline could also be worth checking.

If you registered the warranty, it may be covered. You'll need to give Leica a call. They will want the Ser. number of the scope when you call.

Loss of clarity in spotting scope

depends on maker of scope, some models only come with i year, that should be the first warning, if you want to try something before going back where it was purchased ....take a q-tip put just a dab of alcohol on it, touch eyepiece lense with it, now turn around to dry side of q-tip and clean lense very lightly. this may do it where its 8 years old. you never mentioned the kind of scope.hope this

Buy riflescope!!!! Which one????

Robert, I have the Simmons 6-21x44 MilDot # 511056 scope on my Savage model 10FCP Law Enforcement issue rifle. I think you should check it out. It has 90 MOA internal adjustment and you could get you something like a 15 MOA or 20 MOA tactical rail and push your adjustments out to 1000 meters!!!

Redfield Rifle Scope Manual

I own a Redfield spotting scope the model year is between the 70's to 80's and I need to find a manual for it. But I was Wondering if you could answer a question there is a crossair, then there is another one right above that, then there is a loop on the bottom right hand corner. There is also a yard marker that starts at 600 and goes down to 100. Do you know what it is and how to use it or what the purpose of it is if you could help me that would be great. Thank you for all your help..Joshua Gambler

Yesterday I purchased a Bushnell Banner 4-12 x 40mm scope and mounted it on my RWS model 48 air gun per the scope mount manufacturer's instructions. After shooting my gun 4 times the cross hair broke and...


to me it sounds like you have unfortunately been the victim of a manufacturers defect. the unique thing about shooting spring based airguns like your RWS and my Gamos is the effect of the recoil. it's different from traditional cartridge rifles but will never really be sufficient to ruin your scopes especially a bushnell. For now i would try to return your scope to the store you bough it from if that is within their returns policy. if not call bushnell at (800) 423-3537

here is their repairs process to help you decide what to do
