I had a center point, payed like 40 for it a few years ago. It worked well on a mini 14, ar, and 22, until I put it on a 870 police. 3 shots and shattered the glass. I think they would be fine on a small caliber but they do not handle recoil that well! I'd buy another if I were to put it on a small carbine like an ar or 22, but if the weapon has any recoil, the scope will pay for it!
