    I had a BSA Contender 6x24x40 on an AR-15/223. It held up fine. Decent glass, no fog problems. They have brass gears, which is nice for a cheaper scope, and a limited lifetime warrenty. At the time I couldn't afford the Bushnell mildot I have on it now. It served its purpose well.

    Sorry buddy, I dont. Sold it for cash to put toward the Bushnell on my Bushmaster. What are you looking for? I've got alot of friends that play with such things, might be able to scare you up a deal.

    I think I read somewhere that BSA was sold either a new owner OR back to the original owner(s) a few years ago.
