You can get the Philippines Aetec scopes on ebay for around $100 if you watch it close.

I started the process of upgrading optics a few years ago. "Cheapest" ones I have now are Nikon Prostaffs, which I still consider the best bang for your buck.

I'd also look at the new Redfields.THey are good scopes for the money and if you watch you can find them used for $125.They are made by leupold and have their lifetime warranty.

I use this website http://www.elitedealseeker.com/index.cgi?category=gunstuff and just type in what im looking for and it searches several gun/hunting website's classifieds section and lists them for you..Pretty handy.

I would sell the old scopes, buy good scopes, then you don't need backups.

i was thinking about that but what i get out of the old scopes might bring one price of a good scope thou.so i figure i would just save them for back ups and buy the good scope out right.

Then go threw all the hassle of selling and shipping the old ones.

x 2

And you're probably spend less money over time, and have less hassle should you choose something like the Leupold VX-3.

I would rather just buy a scope that doesn't have a history of breaking.
