Another great BSA scope worth having a look at is the Catseye model

August 20, 2010

If you're currently in the market for a great scope at a great price then you should really take a look at some of the newer BSA scopes; especially models like the Sweet 17. This particular scope has a 50mm lens with a variable 3 to 12 x 40 mm power. Other neat features include target grade turrets and a top turret which you can set by simply turning the dial for whatever range you want to target; all nice and easy to use.

The new Sweet 17 scope is priced to accommodate pretty much every budget out there. It does this by offering 4 different options. At the lower (some would say cheaper) end of the cost spectrum you'll find the 4 x 32mm that has a fixed power. This scope comes in at around a mere $40 which is great value. For around $65, you can upgrade to the 207 32mm that also has AO. At just under $100, BSA also offers the 3012 40mm scope with AO while the 6-16 40mm with AO can be found for about $125.

Another great BSA scope worth having a look at is the Catseye model. An ideal scope to use for close or moderate range shooting work. If you already own a scope with large magnification, it's definitely worth thinking about buying another scope for the times when you're shooting at close range. If you haven't already noticed, a scope with larger magnification can cause some real problems when shooting up close. One of the main problems is that you're forced to spend more time locating the target and as this can lead to a lost shot.

BSA solved this problem with the introduction of the Catseye which sports a lower power variable. Not only does this scope work well for hunting in close to moderate range situations but it also features an illuminated reticle, perfect for hunting in low light situations. There are seven levels of intensity offered with the illuminated reticle on this scope. You can select which level suits you best by pressing a switch until you reach the desired level.

For those of you using a gun that has a lot of recoil then this scope will suit you down to the ground as it can deal with some pretty harsh kickbank. The Catseye has withstood some serious punishment in this department during testing.

BSA has released a great line of scopes that suit a wide variety of hunting and shooting situations and also to suit a wide variety of guns. If you're currently in the market for a new scope then why not check out some BSA scopes today.
