    Good basic scope needed

    My friends scope fogged up when we went for a hunt on sunday, it was a crap one that came with the gun. He wants to get something decent but cant afford new, anyone got a 3-9 x 40 that needs a new home, i think he can prob scrape up a couple of hundred or i could lend him a bit more. Cheers

    For around $300-$350 you can get a great second hand scope. Look up bushnell on trademe and there is a 3500 elite which is a great scope. Could pick up a vx1 leupold or a basic nikon as well. No substitute for quality optics.
    Even look at broncos sports or reloaders for a new vortex crossfire and that would be perfect.
    The world is your oyster.

    Have got a Weaver 3-9x40 here, with BDC reticle. Basically new, was on top of a package 223 for maybe 20 shots.

    Thinking $150? I'm just down the road from you in Fairlie too, you'd be welcome to call in and have a look before buying, if you were heading past.

    I have a nikko sterling night eater 2.5-10 with side focus you can have for $75 plus postage, has a few dings and scratches on the metal but still in good working order. Let me know if you are interested and I can post up pics when I get home.
