    Particular models no, brands yes. Leupold scopes I have a couple of, no issues ever with them. I'm looking at a Nikon EFR Prostaf 3 - 9 .22 LR scope right now. Lots of good reviews on Nikon scopes. Burris scopes are always well rated, don't own one.

    Rather than start a new thread I am going to get slightly off topic and say that my last two scopes have been a Primary Arms 2.5x Compact with CQB reticle (mounted on an AR-15) and a Primary Arms 4-14X44 Mil Dot FFP (mounted on a Remington 700). I find the quality of scope you get with Primary Arms to be totally amazing considering the low price. Both of the scope I got have clear optics, good eye relief, hold a steady zero , and return to zero when moving the reticle several clicks and then back to where you started.

    I have had one barska scope (not the model mentioned) which I found to be junk. I do use a cheap Barska spotting scope which I like.

    Their 1-6x is well regarded as well.

    I wanted (via this post) to provide a little more feedback on the Primary Arms 4x14 mil dot scope. I went shooting today. Using a lightweight barreled .270 Remington 700, assorted ammo and cheap bipod I consistently placed all shots on a 6x6 target at 400 yards firing from a bipod which for me is about as good as I can shoot. At 14x I could make out the bullet splatters as blurs on the metal target which was also the case with my 26 power spotting scope. Clarity of the Primary Arms scope is pretty damn good for the price.

    likewise, not necessarily the models mentioned, but im a cheap bastard, so i have a lot fo cheap scopes.

    barska, mostly junk. i have one or 2 that i use on 22lr's i use for plinking and they work fine, but i wouldnt trust them much farther than that.

    bushnell, idk the model mentioned, but these range from pretty damn good ( i have a 3200 series on my hunting rifle i swear by) to crap. their models vary so widely i cant really say.

    bsa, they are not top shelf optics, but they are a lot of scope for the money, imo. i have quite a few of these i put on rifles that i take out maybe once or twice a year in good weather and they have always worked fine. i have not and do not plan on putting any of them into "important" use. you wont see one on my hunting rifle. one more thing, i have a sweet 17 scope on my 17hmr, which is great, but the rubberized coating turned to scummmy shit and took 2 hours to scrub off.

    swfa ss, i have 2 of the fixed power models, for $300 they are fucking AWESOME. i have a fixed 20x on my 50bmg, and a fixed 10x on my 700sps. they track perfect and are bulletproof.

    quite the eclectic list you have there, why such a wide ranging list?
