This was my uncle's scope for a lonnnnnggggggg time. I am his nephew, and it was given to me for my first scope. It has lasted somewhere between 15 to 20 years. It has only been sent back to the factory once because the seal broke, and some water got trapped inside the scope. However, Redfield had the scope back to my uncle in about a week. The only two draw backs for me are that the magnification is not very high (2x-7x) and the light gathering ability is miniscule (very small). Over all it is a great scope for anyone with shorter range shots in a woody or plot setting. It's now time for me to get a new scope. Does anyone know anything about the brand HAKKO, and if they can be relied upon??? OR Does anyone have some suggestions on a fairly priced (up to $225) scope with a mag. of 3-12 (or more) and a 50 mm lens (or more)???
