    Steve it is a BSA Sweet 22 3-9x40 AO with the three turrets for the 36,38,&40gr. bullets. I am pretty sure he purchased it at Gander Mt. and paid less than $50. I have one on a 10/22 that is also a BSA Sweet 22 6-18x40 AO and it has the same three turrets also purchased for less than $50 at Natchez Shooter's Supply. Give me some more time playing with it but right now I am thinking those three turrets are a sales gimmick. The ballistic path for the first 100yds. is pretty similar in those three weights and I am finding more difference in ammo manufacture than bullet weight. I am sure they may be more valuable as you would stretch the range beyond 100yds. Just haven't messed with it enough yet to know. Weather is improving though.
