Default Centerpoint 4-16x40 scope review

Ok, first off i dont believe in using cheap scopes, but this is on my gamo big cat pellet gun which has broken numerous scopes. Centerpoint claims that they will hold up to airgun recoil and so far it has for over 400 shots. The glass is surprisingly clear, and when the parallax is set correctly it is clear at 16x too. I have bee putting 5 pellets in a jagged hole at 25 yds and have shot accurately even farther than that. The target turrets are great and they lock also. It has an illuminated reticle but i dont care for it. Moral of the story, you get a decent scope and rings for the $. it would work great on a .22 also and would trust it more than a barska. They are $70 available at walmart.

I had that same scope on my 308 AR and shot about 500rnds through it without any issues, now it is on my 22 after upgrading the AR. I have a buddy that had used it at 1K yds just had to use the first mildot to holdover because he was using a 0 moa base and scope didnt have enough travel... he scored pretty good considering the gear he was using. I gotta give credit to centerpoint and $70 price.

I am biased. I will never use inexpensive optics. It is very painful when purchasing good glass but you cant beat it.
