im looking to get a small scope for a archer airguns car78a that i orderd yesterday . i have a bushnell 3-9x40 but i think it would mess with the handling and possably the loading of the gun(heavy big scope) . i like the looks of the 2.5 power scopes but dont know what a good one would be for a co2 rifle . i will mostly be target shotting and plinking with the rifle between 25 feet to 30 yards and would like a scope thats light weight and that i can use with both eyes open . thats why im looking for a 2.5 power but i cant seem to find any decent ones .any one have links to a decent one under $35 ? or should i just use the bushnel ? link to the rifle i orderd http://www.archerairguns.com/airguns.html its the carbine .
I have a 2X pistol scope on one of my 2240s. Its OK but I use a 4X or 6X scope on a rifle. Compacts from Centerpoint or Leapers are small and are not too much more than 35$. Spend the extra money now and save yourself the head-ache of buying a better one later. They also have AO(adjustable objective)which lets you to have the target and cross-hairs in focus as close as 3-5 yards. This is very important on an airgun in my opinion. Regular scopes are usually set at 50 or 100 yards. Hope this helps.
