Anyone use scopes by Sun Optics?
 
I was thinking of getting this for my 9mm carbine for paper punching out to 100 yards: Feedback appreciated. Thanks.

Seems they get generally good reviews and sounds like they have great customer service. Generally you get what you pay for though.

IM not trying to be a ass but there is much better quality out there for just a little bit more , less than $100 . My buddy had a Sun and the guts fell out of it on the first shot with a .223 .

I don't think you are being an ass. I asked for honest feedback and I appreciate your reply.

If you can give me links to something better for under $100, please do so.
I have $100 in Amazon gift cards to play with.

Thanks.

You can check opticsplanet.com. I had a link to a better site but my phone sh!t the bed and I forget what it was. I think C3 gave me the link.

After poking around Amazon reading reviews, I opted to order this:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005EOV1QE/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00

I should have it next week. I'll give a full review after I get it mounted and a few hundred rounds down range.

Alot of people call out UTG as junk but I have had to deal with them on a few issues and they have a 10/10 customer service in my book , they fixed my problem and have not had a issue since . They are getting more and more great respectable products in their product line and as far as Im concerned the scope your looking at is a excellent value for the money. It has a 2 yr warranty and if you have to use it they will take care of you no questions asked , I have a set of those scope rings on my scoped AR, you can take them off and put them right back on and be within 1/4" of zero every time .

Scope Arrived Yesterday
 
First think I noticed was the weight of the box. It came securely packaged from Amazon.

Contents includes scope with flip up lens caps, scope rings with quick release,
lens cloth, two batteries and hardware. Everything seems solid and well made.

Mounting was simple, I tweaked it until I found the best setup for me.

The optics are clear and bright. I didn't toy much with the red/green lighted reticle feature except to verify that it worked. I'll let you know how it works at the range after I get out and whether it is worth 60 bucks.
