    Default Looking for a inexpensive scope for bolt action rifles

    Hi. I have a Lee-Enfield (inherited from my grandad) and a Marlin Guide Gun as well. I'd like to mount some scopes but am unsure which. I was told I probably will want a vortex or Diamondback. I don't hunt anything except cans or soda bottles.

    Go here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and check out their Konus line of rifle scopes. The best 'inexpensive' scopes on the market today.
    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

    Or go to midway and do a filtered search for Bushnell, maybe Tasco (I'm not a fan of Tasco).

    I wish BSA still made the contender scopes in the generic model. A LOT of scope for the money. Decent quality. But now, limited models dedicated to specific calibers.

    So it looks like the Vortex Diamondback got six stars review. That is a contender. I've heard of Bushnell. Think I have some binoculars from them.

    I have a Vortex that I'm happy with. Their 'bulletproof' [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is hard to beat, too.

    "Now there was no blacksmith to be found throughout all the land of Israel, for the Philistines said, 'Lest the Hebrews make themselves swords or spears.'" 1 Samuel 13: 19

    I get most of my scopes from Opticsplanet. There’s some good deals there

    Optics Agent is a good source for optics too. They do not, however, carry Vortex scopes.
    Knowing when and how...

    I made the mistake of trying a Tasco scope on a Rimfire rifle some years back, thinking it might be adequate there. It did not last six months; junk!
