centerpoint optics
 
Good or bad?

What is the warranty? Most scopes have a limited lifetime warranty. Some have a lifetime no questions asked warranty. The junk has a one year warranty. I have had to use the warranty.

I've got two CenterPoints and have been very pleased with them. The optics is clear and they seem to hold zero perfectly. The turret clicks seem accurate because I can count out how much adjustment I need and have it adjust true.

Since they are sold through Walmart, you can return them for a refund at any time.

The one thing I would suggest to anyone mounting a scope, use good rings or a solid one-piece mount and you'll be good to go. Many times the scope gets blamed for problems when it's really poor mounting.

very good post snakedriver! as far as centerpoints are concerned on other sites they come highly recomended. ex rimfire central. i think a rimfire or a 223 would be good for the center point. plus if not satified u can alway take it back to wallmart.

I have two of the Centerpoint 4-16x40 AO scopes. One on my 17hmr and the other on my 223. I am very pleased with their performance.

Yep, as you say I've got mine on my old Remington .22 and my AR-15. Both are pretty much recoiless. They are perfect for that application. :cool:

3-4 years ago, bought the 4-16 Centerpoint at local Wal-Mart on way home from a gunshow for a bubba sporterized M1917 30-06 I'd found there. Scope has been on at least 6 centerfire rifles since then. Never did like the optics in it. But, scope has held zero and tracks well. So, whenever I buy a new rifle that needs a scope, the Centerpoint is used while I shop around for another scope.

I picked up a center point 3-9x32 for my. 22 and liked it so much I went back and got the 4-16x40 for my Browning A-bolt medallion. It holds zero and the optics are clear thanks to the adjustable objective lens. My only complaint is that because it's only a 40 obj. Its a little hard to see thru in low light situations. Overall I love my center point

The prob with the low light has nothin to do with it being a 40mm obj, its becouse the glass an coatings are crap. Cheap optics are just that Cheap.

I had one of these on my 30-06 and was able to hit a nickel at a 100yds great scopes and a buddy has one on his 300wm and works awsome.
