Simmons Whitetail Classic 3-9X40

Recommended Posts

Anybody used one of these scopes before? Got one on Ebay for $45 still in the box. What I've seen online is they're supposed to be pretty decent scopes. Itll be going on one of my .22s just wondered if anybody has used one before. Figured for $45 it'd be hard to beat.

Yea I know, got a Vortex 4-12X44 on one of my others. Just can't use full power at shorter distances. The 100yd parallax never really bothered me on .22s.

It might be ok on a .22, I've never had great luck with Simmons on a centerfire.

I have a Simmons straight 4X on a Savage 93 FVSR and it has been a great combination. Had it 8 years now. Shoots great.

Its honestly a good scope for the money, it's as clear as the Vortex Copperhead that I swapped over to another gun. Got tool-less turrets that are spot on, and the eye relief is great. Also came with flip up scope caps that ain't bad.

So far the gun shoots as good as it did with the Vortex. I'm pleased with it especially for $45, wish he had another because I'd bought it also. You can get them on Amazon for $65, I'll probably pick another up if I can get this Remington 597HB off a buddy.
