Take a Second Look!
on May 8, 2012
OK, some folks may wonder why I give this scope 5 stars. Normally, that would be reserved for scopes like Zeis, Swarovski, and other scopes up there in the 4 digit range. But, I'm an average guy, middle class working stiff, who can't afford high dollar glass on my less than high dollar varmint rifles. So, for what it is in it's price range- Mueller makes a very nice product. It's my understanding that they keep the prices down by not putting a lot of money into advertising. And No, it's not made in America- but guys like me can't afford comparable scopes that are made here in the states. The scope is VERY clear edge to edge and crisp even at 25x. For a 1" tube, it gathers light very well in dawn and dusk times. The mil-dots aren't true 2nd plane which stay exact at all powers (never understood that stuff anyway), however, if you spend much time over a prairie dog town, the dots become excellent aiming points for windage and hold-over shots and you get accustomed to using them quickly. Trust me, I live in West Texas where the wind is known for blowing more often than not, so those dots come in handy and get used a lot! The largest caliber rifle I have one of these on is a .243, so I can't attest to the durability of this scope as far as heavy recoil. My oldest Mueller is 8 or 9 years old now and it's still as functional (tightness and turret clicks) as the day I got it. And it's had a rough life being dragged up and down hills, tractors, trucks, stock tanks, one abandoned railroad car, and a windmill or two. I have 3 and will add another as soon as I get a parts/project rifle completed. Seriously, take a second look at this scope- it's worth 3 or 4 times the money.
