In the process of buying a savage 17 rifle from a local guy. He has a bushnell banner 3x9 scope now. The situation is do a give him $50 for the scope. Or do you guys think I could find a better scope for $75? Thanks guys
that scope brand new is around 80 bucks , so i guess your looking at a 35 % discount if you pay 50. Maybe if it comes with decent rings and the glass is in good condition. You could always but some shitty rings for 5 or 10 bucks.
personally i dont like to mess with scopes that shitty. But on a 17 hmr, why not.
I would get some better glass for the rifle. I have a cheapo Mueller Eraticator that I got from JoeBob's for about 200 bucks. My rifle is a 93R17BVSS that has the barrel cut to 16.5in with a target crown. I shot this group at 100 with the stock old style trigger, the flyer was my fault but these rifles are way more accurate than most people expect.
