    Hello
    Is there a cost-effective 4x32 Riflescope that can be introduced?
    Thanks

    Need more info, what do mean cost effective?
    One of my Nightforce scopes has got me 202 deer in the last 4 years. 202 x 20kg average = 4,040kg of boned out meat , times that by $25kg if I bought it at the supermarket = $100k. So it’s easy to justify the cost to the mrs. But it all depends on what you’re shooting and actual budget.

    What I want is that the price is not too expensive, and the quality is better.

    I think this post in the introductions thread probably summed it up best......

    Hunt Enthusiasm, I have looked at the range of 4x32 scopes available, and don't really see one that stands out as being good quality and good value. It may be there, but I can't see it.

    You might find it helpful to look at 3-9x40 scopes, as there are more choices.

    It really comes down to how much money you want to spend I guess.

    Nikko Stirling are a fairly good scope for an entry level option. As mentioned- more options in the 3-9x40 but if you really want a fixed power they have their uses. Also look at a 4x40 or 6x40 as an option. There are various choices.
    It depends more on what you are using it for? Your use and requirement will enable better advice.

    A cheap scope can do some jobs well but may not handle what you may want to do- replacing them is not economical. Buying an expensive scope when a cheaper one will do the same job is also not economical.

    buying a hilman hunter to drive on forest tracks will kill it quickly, but while a new hilux will do this better, leaving the car parked outside work on night shift in town in a small car parking space, I would suggest the hilman would have the edge...(Which will hurt more to say to the insurance company?: that my $1000 Hilman was stolen on Friday night or my brand new Hilux had $10,000 worth of damage after being stolen on Friday night?)
