    Some gave me a brand new BSA Reddot scope. Model #RD30SB. We are talking about he biggest piece of junk I've ever seen in my life. Made in china of course. You cannot see the red dot in sunlight, barely can see it indoors. I put a new battery in it and it's still not working right. One time you have a dot, the next time you have a straight line, and the next time it's a straight line running from front to rear. I retired from the All Army Eastern Region Rifle Team and I'm very familiar with scopes. You can hardly turn the power knob. Does anybody else have one of these critters and if you do, did it work as it's supposed to. I know it's a cheap piece of chinese junk. I just threw it in the trash. Time to buy a new scope and it won't be a red dot. I want one for my Ruger, probably a 2X pistol scope and it won't be made in china. End of rant.

    Sorry, but yes, cheap and nasty. Shame they put the BSA name on them. Sign of the times I guess.

    At least it didn't cost me anything, so it's no loss.

    You needed a pair of pliers to turn the power knob. 1st rate quality products from china. I don't even like rice anymore.

    I have a Bushnell Red Dot sight on my .44, and just love it. Not hard to see at all; the power level can be set to any of 11 settings. This makes it easy to see in the daytime or the nighttime.
