I've had several Ncstar scopes. Loved them all.

BSA scopes from the 90's were made by the Japanese & are pretty good. You can still find them used on the cheap.

You can buy a cheaper rifle or pistol & have pretty good luck most of the time. Optics are a different ball game. I've bought at least 3 inexpensive scopes and ended up trashing them before I could get them sighted in.

I have had problems with Ncstar and never had one with BSA. I've had a BSA on my Savage .22 for years.

I'll pass on both.....

I'm more of a "buy once, cry once" guy, and prefer to avoid Chinese knock-off products.

I don't know I have one BSA and it's ok nothing really awesome serves it's purpose, I decided to stay away from NcStar just because I was looking at one scope had a all the features I was looking for but I just couldn't believe the price, I figured it's either a trap or just was something like would break on me.

I've had both of the old one's and the bsa held up better. I had to send the NC Star back once. I won't buy any scope made in China. Kahles are the last two scopes I bought, made in Austria, or if you can afford a Swarovski,they don't make a better one in my opinion. Redfield or Ziess make good inexpensive or affordable scopes, but if your budget calls for a NC Star or BSA, I have to go with the BSA. I gave my NC Star away.

I have had both and avoid both. Not all low cost Scopes are bad look into osprey they are s good brand, and ZOS both are affordable and will stand up.

I dont believe you need anything over a 9X for a .22 . I have had good luck with my bushnell trophy and banner scopes on my HP rifles and they are reasonably priced , Hell I think I have a $29 older cheapo 2X Simmons on my .22 and it shoots fine out to 50 yards
