!Check out this spotter Deal OF A LIfeTime!!

Check out this Winchester Spotting Scope Kit.

Winchester Spotting Scope

Check out Nio's link instead.I am purchasing one soon. Anyone out there have one? Like it?
I think it is a great deal. Comes with case and since it has a large zoom range, and can be close up, makes it great for outdoor or indoor.

Just thought I'd let everyone know of a deal.

Nope. I don't really have much call for a spotter scope. I should probably pick one up, and this looks like a deal.

There's a reason why these spotting scopes go for under $100.

The best budget scope you can get is the Bushnell Spacemaster.

If you plan on using that Winchester spotting scope beyond 100 yards, you're probably not going to like it.

The Winchester marked spotting scopes are made in China and are not made by Winchester. Winchester just licensed their name out to another company.

I looked through one at the range that another shooter had and it was tolerable for 100 yards, but it wasn't very clear glass. I couldn't imagine using it at 200 yards or beyond.

I have got to agree with OCABJ. I have been really disappointed with Winchester for selling their name to be put on junk. I got my little brother a so-called Winchester pellet gun and the trigger is so stiff and mushy at the same time that you can't hit anything with it.
I got a Leupold Wind river Sequoia spotting scope, which is probably more than I need. You can get a Bushnell Trophy for 159 HERE
and get a product with some proven quality
