I purchased my Daisy Powerline 3-9x32 airgun scope at Walmart, and have been using it for a few weeks now on my tuned Norinco Fastdeer. As with most airgun scopes, you will need to shim the rear scope mount slightly to get your pellets to hit where you aim, otherwise they will be low. Be careful when shimming, as the scope mount threads do not go full depth in the holes and can easily be stripped with too much shim installed. Along these same lines, the turret covers require a gentle touch when removing or installing to avoid stripping them also. That said, you will be hard pressed to find a comparable scope for the $30.00 this one sells for. It holds it's zero very well, even on a mild springer, and provides very good clarity from 10 yards (30 feet) out to 50 yards (150 feet) and probably further. The scope tube is aluminum and not plastic as found on some of the cheaper scopes, and features a matt black finish that seems to withstand scratches. This is a great scope for the money, and allows beginners to experience the benefits of variable power and quality optics that they might miss out on otherwise. Go spend the $30.00 and see for yourself.
