Default SEAL scopes????

Does anyone know anything about SEAL brand scopes? I have personaly held one and looked through it, and I thought it looked realy good. I have read some online reviews and they were all good. I want to know if anyone here has any first hand knowledge of these scopes. I know it is not an $1,800 nightforce, or a $1,200 leupold, but are they better than Bushnell? Any advice is welcome.
Thank you all in advance

I have a Seals 3x9x40 on my Winchester 94 44Mag and it has been a good scope. It has decent glass and clarity,and has always held up to the punishment that a 44Mag dishes out.

Well I was hopping to get more than 2 responses, and only one with first hand knowledge. I guess in a week or two I will pick one up and try it out. I will let you all know what I think. I sure wish JD would have weighed in on this.

Truevil, I'm from the old school of thought that believed that you should spend at least, if not more, the same amount of money on optics as you did on the firearm.

In todays market I believe that there are many fine optics that sell for a reasonable price. Basically, it's the advances in technology and the assembling of these products outside the U.S. that makes them more affordable.

I put a $150.00, 6 X 24 N.C. Star (Lifetime Warranty) with side focus and a lit reticle atop of my Bushmaster V-Match, 1st., because I want to shoot out to 600 yards, and 2nd., because I can not afford a $1200.00 scope. Although, I haven't tried 600 yards yet, I shot one large hole at 100 yards with fifteen rounds last week.

True the optics aren't as good as a more expensive scope, but the results were. Shoot Straight and Stay Safe, Hunter Joe

You get what you pay for with any kind of glass. I use Leupolds on about every gun I scope. I have picked up around 30 of them over the years. The best all round scope is a 3 x 9. I have picked up several of the Vari X 11`s for $ 200 or less. I do have an 8 1/2 x 25 that I have $ 1,000 in. It is on a .22-6mm and so far in the field I have never fired it at over the 8 1/2 X setting when hunting. But it is a long range snipeing rifle and as soon as I can catch a coyote out there around 800 yrds. I`ll try the higher powers.

Well, I went ahead and pulled the trigger and ordered it. It should be here by the end of the week, and hopefuly I can look it over this weekend. I will let you all know what I think in all honesty. If it is junk I will say so, and if it is just as good as my Nikon, I will say so. I will let you know in a week or so.

Truevil,I think you will be happy with the Seals scope. It isn't in the same ballpark as my Nikon's,but it will serve it's purpose. I have had my Seals on the 44Mag Winchester for 4-5 yrs and it has held up just fine,and the clarity works great for the ranges that I've used it for. THB
