I'd put this on any of my personal rifles. I've had this on my Ruger 10\/22 for a few years, and it's kept my rifle extremely accurate at the firing range. I've shot more accurately than I'd ever expect with a rifle. My brother shot a shotgun shell at the far end of the range, past the target. I couldn't even see it in the scope. This was a terrific decision and I'd buy this again! I don't ever use the illuminating crosshairs.
Picked one of these up Friday and shot 150-200 rounds with it on my M&P-15. Gave it 3 for value because it was cheap, and definitely overrated it with a 4 for \"Meets Expectations\" because I was expecting it to be a lot worse than it actually was.\nPros:\n-Cheap! Got it on sale for ~$40 out the door\n-Reticle was easy to select and gave many options\n-5 brightness levels for both red and green reticles\n-Sold feel, decent fit and finish, looks good on gun, mounted firmly\n-Included battery, allen wrench (for mounting), and cleaning cloth\n-Works great with bindon aiming concept for quick target acquisiton.\n-On paper right out of the packaging, only ~4 MOA off of center.\n-Adjustment knobs (U\/D and L\/R) clearly marked and have firm click when turned\nCons:\n-More difficult to mount than most I have used. Tough to get perfectly upright without putting gun on block or vice and measuring\n-Reticle (red or green) ghosted badly on any brightness other than \"1\"\n-Cleaning cloth is poor quality. Buy a better one and use the included one for cleaning your rifle\n-Held zero through 150rds, but IMHO I wouldn't trust it past that. I'll re-zero before shooting with it again.\n-Couldn't place reticle exactly in the center of the sight. Sat high of center no matter what eye relief I tried.\nOverall:\nThis is NOT a precision optic by any means. I picked it up because it was cheap and I was on my way out to the range. Once the scope I ordered and my MBUS Pro irons come in, this will be going in my gun case and probably will never be used again, but for $40 I couldn't pass it up.\nIf you want a cheap-o optic with many reticle options for casual shooting it's not bad, but experiences may vary depending on which rifle you have it on.
I was given a CENTER POINT scope very simular to this one back in January of this year for my birthday.
I mounted it on to my .300 SAVAGE, zeroed in and took it hunting in November. In 5 days of hunting I must of hiked 20 miles and unfortunentlly I didnt see a deer.
With all the hiking I did, and all the bumps the rifle took, I was afraid that I might have knocked the scope out of wack. So On the last day of the hunt I set up a target at about 50 yards, took aim and fired, and hit the bulls eye.
I have never heard of CENTER POINT before this, but I now beleve that thay are an amazing buy. alot of scope for not alot of money.
I have desided that I am going to replace the TASCO scope on my .22 with a CENTER POINT. I am also going to buy another .22 for my girlfrend, and I will also be putting a CENTER POINT on that one as well. I also have also been shopping for an air gun, and have desided to buy the CROSSMAN FURY, which now comes with, you guessed it, a CENTER POINT scope.
My point is, this scope is well made and can withstand some though conditions, and for under $80 you cant go wrong.
There are a lot of positive reviews on this scope and I expected it to live up.....it did not.\nI mounted this on my Mossberg 500A 12 Gauge - Loaded it up with a Remington Nitro Turkey Load, it lasted TWO shots then the front lens came loose and is rattling around inside of the body. it is rendered completely useless and will be returned tomorrow.\nthe other con on this even if it would have held up is a turkey would most likely spot you in the woods because the front lens is a mirror.\nTorn on whether or not to exchange it and try again or get my $ back.....
I was skeptical about this scope having Bushell and Nikons. Lets just say so far Im very impressed! Great clarity and crosshairs. Built well too. I havent been to the range yet with my Rem 1187 it was put on. I think it will be a great accesory for the price!
A lot of scope for the money. Very clear optics. Mounts, focus and settings still holding a very tight pattern after about 300 shots. Recoil is not a problem. Large 50mm objective lens gathers extra light for shooting in fading light when the hunting is best. Adjustable green or red illuminated reticles perform well in bright sun or late afternoon dim light. Battery life is good. This is my second Center Point scope. Both perform well as a target scopes and for precise hunting at extended ranges. Always sight in using the highest magnification and then dial it back down to the magnification where you usually use it. This way you know that you will be on target when you dial it up to 9 power for those occasional long shots with a bipod for sniper accuracy.

What our shoppers say:
I had been searching for a laser that I could put on my Stag Arm rifle for some time now. I like most people thought the local gun shops or gun shows would be the best choice to purchase the laser. To my surprise very similar ones at these shops were selling for $180.00. I am sure the quality may be far superior, although how could I really justify it? I purchased this about 2 months ago. Overall very nice laser and at night the laser can go well over 200 yards. The only down side was the pressure switch already broke and I am a litttle disappointed the quality was very poor with the pressure switch. I am happy that I can just use the on and off button and it works. So I am able to still use it and people are surprised with how good this laser really is.
This is not for the precision shooter, or the person that demands the absolute finest quality and willing to pay the highest dollar for it. This is for the guy doing the long and hasty shot under duress and really needs something that can take a few dings and scratches without feeling to sorry for the scope and pocket book. If you are the first guy, get the Leupold VX R Patrol sight for $700-$900. For similar performance lacking all refinements and for cheap, get this one.
