Has anyone had any experience with Bresser scopes. I know there a German company but that doesn't mean it's good quality. Myself being frugal as I am. Or cheap skate by some standards I'm just wondering if I could get a good deal.

    Cd 2 point made. I just tend to overthink things. I have a nice rifle well nice to me. I thinks it's time to give it a proper optic. I'm in the same boat. It takes a lot for me to have a day in the woods. So it's time to upgrade

      Beware of the cheap scopes.
      Bushnell Banners used to be OK, but when they moved production we saw a lot more warranty usage.
      For that reason, I no longer recommend them (haven't for years).
      In fact, the cheapest scope I'll vouch for these days is the Redfield Revolution.
      As much as I invest in shooting/hunting as far as time, gas, loss of work (passing overtime)........saving $100 on a scope just doesn't cut it.
      Risking a hunt, by higher chance of gear failure.........I have never understood.
      Could be the deer of a lifetime.....$100 to screw that up?
      Heck, gas for me to hunt one day is $30 and that's "backyard hunting".

      I see tons of guns with cheap scopes and folks driving 40K trucks.Yup, running $50 optics, all psyched to go after "whopper bucks".
      Seen some bring in guns needing new scopes mid season. Some upgrade (learn their lesson). Most do not.

      It amazes me how people think burning a ton of gas, spending all that time afield, and having a chance at a bruiser buck....justifies risking it all by choosing suspect gear right off the bat.

      There must be some "cheap scope cult".

      Reminds me of my dad's old bud. 7mm magnum, Sako, "1 of 1000" with IIRC oak leaf cluster checkering. Yup, Herters cheapy scope.

      He had a reg Sako 7 mag too......shot it. Same type of cheap Herters nuked the crosshairs.But by golly it was a good scope, the 7 mag just so powerful.

      Never got the old guy to change his view LOL.

      He must come from a gargantuan family tree.
      You have to remember (I am not justifying it, just thinking out loud) that most cannot afford a $2k Zeiss. While they (the $$$ scopes) typically last a lifetime, some need to work a lifetime just to afford one.

      I got a Nikon BDC 4x12 Prostaff a few years ago for under $150 (there was a 30% off sale and I found a $50 mail-in-rebate). My point is, patience can find you a middle of the road quality for cheap. I dont have time for expensive optics. None of my buddies do. Only the ones working 50-60 hrs a week do....but then again, they dont have time to hunt!

          So do I. No excuse for my rants. Just cranky, I guess, because of the discomfort caused by my knuckles dragging on the ground.

            I have a bresser Konig scope on my .243 and have found it to be excellent over the last 2years -clear ,good light gathering doesn't mist ,illuminated reticule never moved since I zeroed it -can highly recommend this scope -I paid just over £200 for it new -ridiculous at that price -as good as any scope in the higher price range -can't fault it at all
