Simmons 2101 Aetec Riflescope 2.8-10 x 44 WA Rifle Scopes

Rifle Scopes Manufacturer: Simmons
Simmons Model: 2101 Aetec Riflescope 2.8-10 x 44 WA
Review Category: Rifle Scopes

Purchase: Rifle Scopes Purchased at a local gun dealer for $180.00 to mount on my new Browning Lever Action .308 caliber rifle. Was told of it's superb performance for the price by the gunsmith and another friend.

Things I like about the Simmons 2101 Aetec Riflescope 2.8-10 x 44 WA Rifle Scopes: The clarity of vision, and the aspherical lens system. Also the sunshade provided, as well as the 2.8 - 10 adjustment.

What I don't like about the Simmons 2101 Aetec Riflescope 2.8-10 x 44 WA: Had to remove the rear sight to accommodate the 44mm optic. If the unit had been made a little longer, I wouldn't have had to remove the rear sight. Scope worked well during the first season; ran about 5 boxes of shells, then noticed I had to continuously adjust the scope windage and elevation adjustments. Now in the third season, I am retiring the scope due to not being ale to hold it's accuracy. Also the front eye piece o-ring came out during the second season of use.

Rifle Scopes 2101 Aetec Riflescope 2.8-10 x 44 WA quality: I do like the stout tube design and eye relief. The power zoom ring is stiff.

2101 Aetec Riflescope 2.8-10 x 44 WA summary: Due to the issues with the o-ring slippage on the eye piece, the stiff power zoom ring, and especially the amount of time spent at the gun range and the dollar amount of ammunition spent due to constant adjustments, whether it be from the kick of high power rifle or I whether I just received a lemon, I will not purchase another Simmons Aetec Riflescope.
