If you are going to change optics, buy one that hasn't any to begin with.
I have a Howa 1500 and the Nikko Sterling scope lasted over 2000 firings before I determined the scope was screwing-up; I'm not so sure it actually is.
If you do get one with a scope, also change the aluminum scope mounts and rings for quality steel ones.
