That kinda bothers me but if the 4-16 works well, at only $225 (gunshow price) I think I'll buy the 10-40.
Good Luck!
Osprey scopes are pretty low shelf optics.And a 10-40x is way too much scope for what you are wanting to shoot.

When it comes to scopes,you really do get what you pay for. Cheap price= Cheap optics.
You will never regret saving up,and buying a quality scope for your rifle.

I guess you're right, I may just go ahead and drop $400-$500 on one later in the year, then I know what I'm getting.

i concur about the opsreys. they may look good on the outside, but when you go to start making adjustments, the crappy scopes dont track as well.

If you look around on different auction sites,you can find some really great mid to higher end scopes used for a great price.
Over the years,I've bought some $1k-2k scopes for 50% of what they cost new,and they were in perfect condition.
Almost every quality scope manufacturer guarantee's their products with a lifetime warranty,and if there ever was a problem with a used scope,you can send it back to the mfg.,and get them fixed or replaced for next to nothing.

I know several guy's that are always going to garage/estate sales looking for old beat up Leupold's,they don't pay much for them,and then send them back to the factory to have them checked out. They have gotten many new or refurbished scopes from Leupold doing that.

Ok, after some more research, I've decided that my budget is $500 or less, I definitely want a variable power with at least a 16x capability and no less than a 40 mm objective lense.

Just as an example, what do you guys think of this option?

I'm still open to any suggestions under the $500 mark, thanks.

As ive said before, Vortex makes solid scopes. If you can look into the viper HS series, little bit better glass. Also. Nikon m-series scopes are great.
