Guide to Purchasing The Right Rifle Scope

By Justin Brooke

If you are shopping for a new rifle scope you have potentially spotted there's a enormous range in the power and magnifications available, with dozens of popular brands and a wide range of prices. With gun optics, remember the old proverb, you get what you pay for. You won't find wonderful deals on optics so you must consider the quality and your particular wishes to get a good value.

In general, there are a couple of things you should expect from expensive scopes compared against more cost-effective $100 brands. Expensive scopes usually have better optics and coatings and will likely be more trusty and durable. They also have more reliable corrections, better light-gathering capability and enhanced lucidity.

If you are a hunter you most likely have no need for the most costly rifle scope so you should find something within your resources. When you're purchasing Saiga accessories like a scope, do your utmost to stay away from inexpensive scopes and stick to the middle price bracket. There are 2 main points that must be kept in mind: the target lens and the magnification.

The bigger the objective lens, the better that its light-gathering capacities. This allows you better vision in the dark, though these scopes are heavier and need more careful mounting to clear the barrel. Usually, the commended range is 36mm to 42mm. The magnification, from the other standpoint, is crucial for long range shooting. If you're hunting big game you should not need much magnification and a general purpose hunting rifle will do very well with a 10x magnification. For giant game hunting, a variable optic scope isn't necessary and a fixed 4x scope should be suitable and reliable.

When you're planning to buy a rifle scope for your Saiga or other rifle, do you best to get the most pricey option in your price range but consider the factors discussed above to avoid spending more than you've got to.
