I was wondering what everybody thought about these scopes. I remember a time when they were good and then bad but how about now. I have had Leupolds, Nikons and Bushnell Elites. How do they compare to these brands? I have been looking at them due to I'm picking up a new Marlin guide gun in 45-70 and I'm needing a scope for it. I was wanting not to spend as much money for the scope as I did for the gun this time.
