Choosing a new scope for your rifle isn't always a simple matter. In the past few years there has been a huge increase in the number of scopes released to the public. Scopes are using more and more advanced technology and prices are getting higher as well. Depending on what you are looking for, a lot of these scopes won't even apply to your needs and you can disregard them from your consideration. Be sure to take your time when comparing scopes, and always look at the three main things to consider when shopping : the warranty, the scope's internal adjustment range, and the scope body assembly quality. Here we will take a look at each of these elements.

When buying a scope, you want to be sure you are protected against any manufacturer defects, since you are spending a considerable amount of money. Some warranties are better than others, in that they even cover accidental damage for a limited period of time. Many scopes come with limited lifetime warranties, which doesn't alwyas mean the same thing. Be clear on whether this covers accidental damage, or if it excludes certain types of damage. Small warranty details like these won't make a huge difference right away, but down the road may save you lots of repair costs. Be sure to check how long the warranty lasts, and just as importantly, if you need to be the original scope owner to be eligible for warranty coverage.

The second thing you need to consider is how much internal adjustment range is on the scope. Ideally, you want at least 60 inches or more of adjustment. To determine this, first look at your rifle. If your rifle is hard to mount, you may not have the amount of range that you thought you did. Be sure that you can mount the scope straight onto the rifle, otherwise there is the possibility of losing a lot of range. If you want maximum, you should go for a scope with a large objective lens.

Lastly, take some time to examine the assembly of the scope's body. The scope is going to be exposed to the elements, and sometimes some bumps and bangs here and there. This will happen even moreso if you move around a lot and are primarily an outdoor shooter. Ideally you want a body constructed of sturdy materials like steel or aluminum, and not plastic. Doing so will save you some repair and replacement costs in the future. This is a case where the extra costs up front can go a long way.

Whether you are a new or experienced shooter or hunter, your rifle scope is an investment where you want to go for quality. Do not go for a no-name brand that looks like it has questionable construction. A good rule of thumb is to budget about $250 for your rifle scope. You will have better shooting results and know that your scope will last you a long time.
