    So I know that you get what you pay for but, whos using cheap (and I mean cheap) red dots/scope. Im wanting something just for plinking. Im seeing some for less than $30 and im thinkin I want cheaper. All I ask is that nobody bash me for wanting a cheap sight. Whos using a CHEAP red dot or scope. Thanks!
  2. I'm using a Tasco red dot that I got at Walmart for $20 on clearance.

    What is it that you're asking? Are you wanting links to sub-$30 optics which others here have been happy with?

    Peace favor your sword,

    If you want cheap go on eBay Amazon or find one you're willing to pay for and get it. The advantage of Walmart is its easy to return.

    Quick hijack I went and picked up a new reflex sight for the tactical bunny blaster. It is a Sightmark Z series green dot 4 different reticles . Took the old reflex sight that has a scratch on it and moved it to the Ruger Mark 2 so the wife is a happy camper now and I really like the Sightmark. It also is a quick release mount so makes it easy to take off. Will need to check to see if it loses zero.

    Today, I received one of the refurbished Bushnell RedDot scopes for $18.99 ImageUploadedByHi-Point Forum1417726737.988450.jpg

    I was not aware that Tasco and Bushnell were the same company. Then again, I haven't used many long arms for a while.

  13. A few days ago, FFS had a BSA Red Dot, normally $59.99, special price of $9.99, free shipping. I jumped on it. Why not...

    Who knows, maybe it'll be OK. For ten bucks I couldn't pass up the deal.

    At various times, Bushnell, Tasco,, Browning optics, Celestron, and Simmons have all been under one roof. But Bushnell and its holdings were all bought by MidOcean Partners, and then 2 years ago, ATK bought them all up.

    Bushnell Outdoor Products[5] is the parent company of these brands:

    Simmons Optics[6]
    Blackwater Gear[8]
    Bollé Performance Eyewear[9]
    Browning Sports Optics[10]
    Bushnell Golf[11]
    Butler Creek[12]
    Simmons Outdoor Corporation[6]
    Stoney Point[15]
    Uncle Mike’s[17]
    Uncle Mikes Law Enforcement[18]
    Bushnell also has licensing agreements with Bausch & Lomb and Browning Arms Company.

    Of the three sights specifically mentioned in this thread, BSA, Tasco, and the Global Sportsman; do they all fit the upper rail on the 995TS without adaptors or grinding?
  18. My Tasco fit without modification, the other ones probably do also.
