Aim Sports Compact Rangefinder Scope Review
This is another basic rangefinder scope that is affordable and easy to use. It is also built like a tank. It doesn’t have the bells and whistles of more expensive scopes.
It may not impress discriminating hunters and shooters, but novice ones will be able to find a good use for this scope.
This is a fog proof and shock proof scope that you can take outdoors, especially in the woods. It also gets good grades for its ease of use, and ability to hold zero for a long time. This rangefinder scope also delivers clear and clean images as long as the distance of the target is not beyond 100 yards.
Good optic quality
This is fully coated to reduce glare especially under bright lighting conditions. It offers a fixed 4x magnification unlike other models in this list. According to reviewers on Amazon.com, this scope should be good enough for shooting targets up to 50 yards.
While the manufacturer says it can be used for targeting animals at 100 yards or more, the consensus among users on Amazon.com is that it isn’t that accurate and reliable at that distance.
This is a small scope that only weighs less than a pound (0.68 pounds to be exact). It is also short at around 7 inches in length. It’s a good choice for hunters or shooters who don’t want a scope that adds up to the weight of their weapons.
It is also has that rugged look and design, making it very much resistant to water, fog, and similar conditions.
Easy to use
Mounting this scope, for starters, should not give you a lot of problems. It comes with Weaver/Picatinny 1913 rings that are designed to be mounted on most rifles.
Most owners on Amazon.com also say that it is fairly easy to mount. The usual gripe is that the rings can easily become loose, and affect the ability of the scope to hold zero. Moreover, making adjustments is easy as you don’t need tools or coins to do so.
Fixed magnification rangefinder scope
This scope offers a fixed 4x magnification that makes the unit more likely to last than other scopes in this list. Fixed power scopes like this model are known to have less weak spots, and thus less likely to break.
Other users of fixed power scopes say these units also have clearer views compared to scopes with variable magnification.
36.6 feet at 100 yards of FOV
This scope has a field of view of 36.6 feet at 100 yards. For its price that figure is pretty solid.
