    I have their Sweet 17 and the 22. Because I shoot so much 22 I use holdover more than the dial. On the 17 I stripped the tiny turret set screw, and they fixed it for free.

    After doing a bit of research, . . . I can get a Nikon Prostaff Rimfire for ~$35 more.

    Sweet 22's are $40 when they have them at sportsman guide. I have one and it works well with my 10/22. I like having an adjustable objective or side focus on my 22.

    How can they sell it for that price [whenever it is actually available on their site, that is]? Aren't they around the $130 mark, normally?

    It's a BSA, and therefore it is not worth owning IMO.

    And that would be a fair assessment, I'm sure. I have an older one that has done me pretty well. Been using it on my 10/22. However, its light transmission isn't as good, and has a slightly "yellow-ish" tint, compared to my other scopes.

    I have one on my Remington 582 and it works just fine. I'm pretty sure I paid under $50 when I bought mine a few years ago.
