So I figured I'd finally stick an eyeball on the Ruger stainless 10/22lr...
Took a chance on the Vortex Crossfire 1.5-4X32; Doug's offering this scope for $59.99. I have some nice glass around here and I was skeptical at that measly price.
All I can say is wow.
Haven't a clue how Vortex can offer such a great value for such a ridiculous price. And the thing is warranted forever.
It's not a featherweight, but the glass is amazingly clear, the adjustments are finger friendly with audible clicks and the build quality looks outstanding.
I'll post a long term review when I get there; but for now, this thing rocks for the money.
Great scope for a kid's new .22 for Christmas....
