I love how this scope is ready to mount. It is also designed to be used in almost all types of weather. It is also very easy to zero in, so you won’t have any problems in case you want to move it from one rifle to another. Plus, it performs well even beyond 100 yards.

Good optical quality

This BSA sweet 22 scope has a multi-coated lens designed to reduce glare, especially when used in bright lighting conditions. The glass is also very clear and it delivers very bright and perceptible images.

Many online reviewers also point out how easy it is to zero in. This BSA sweet 22 scope also offers 3 to 9x magnification making it suited for close, mid, and even long-distance shooting.

Simply put, the optic quality of this scope is impressive enough for its price range.

Good built quality

This scope is lightweight as it only weighs 20 ounces. It is made out of aluminum. It is fog proof, shockproof, and waterproof. It is thus durable and strong to resist years of abuse, without adding up a lot of weight to your rifle.

This BSA sweet 22 scope is Easy to use

The rimfire scope is very easy to use. Its adjustable objective lens, elevation, and windage adjustments, for example, are very easy to adjust with your hands.

You don’t have to use a coin or screwdriver to adjust them. It also has quick-change turrets for 36, 38, and 40 gr. Bullets.

Field of view at 100 yards

This BSA sweet 22 scope has a field of view of 100 yards. You will be able to see pretty clear images at 50 and 100 yards with this scope.

With its maximum magnification of 9x, this scope should help you improve your accuracy when your target is around 100 yards.

Calibrated for the .22

This scope is very easy to mount on rifles such as Ruger 10/22, Savage MKII, Mossberg 702, and Rimfire shooter .22LR, among others. It is unlike most optics in the 3-9x40mm market which are designed for multiples such as .308.

Final Verdict

BSA is known for producing affordable but good quality rifle scopes, and this one is a perfect example. It is a good scope to have if you’re just shooting for fun, or you are into serious game hunting. It is very easy to mount and since it is calibrated for .22 rifles, this should work well for your rifle.

The optic quality of this BSA sweet 22 scope isn’t topnotch but for its price range, it is serviceable, to say the least. It can improve your accuracy if your target is within 50 to 100 yards. But don’t expect it to be very useful for targets beyond 100 yards.
