I now know why Simmons is offering 25% off. Dont buy one. I had a 3x12 AO go bad on a 22 so I returned it . They sent me a new 4x14 Aetec, their top of the line. Great I thought.
This is too nice a scope for the 22 so I stuck it on my 308 bolt. It took less than 40 rnds of 308 to break it.
I wont be buying anymore Simons scopes. I had to change scopes at the range. I had a bad feeling and brought a Burris 3x9x40 with me along with a torque wrench, bits and a collimeter. I matched the settings from the Simmons and It only took me 6 shots with the Burris to sight in and the last 3 were under an inch.
