They are cheap, I'm looking at a long eye releif scope for 100 bucks. I just need to know if it is good enough for now. I hate not having a scope on my M1A, because I feel like only shooting the irons isn't taking full advantage of the platform.

Long story short, does anyone have any experience with this company?

From what I'm seeing online, its about 50/50 on these. Some people are happy and others hate them. My opinion is cheap optics on a nice gun just ruin the gun, but to each his own. It looks like the biggest complaint I'm finding about the aim sports scopes are that they fog up internally a lot and that they come with little to no instructions. I'd pass on these. For about $150 you can start looking at some Nikon scopes and they have the best glass for the money.

I would have to agree with piff. The problem with cheap optics is that you can never be sure of the quality of components and construction. This is especially the case with AIM. There is an AIM airsoft company which produces AEGs and accessories which can be very convincing to the untrained eye. A friend of mine learned the hard way when they bought what they thought was an aimpoint on ebay for sale. Instead of shooting with it, we ended up shooting at it. :lol: It has always been a requirement for my rifle scope to be first focal plane which pretty much excludes most if not all cheap riflescopes under $200 anyway.

Well,the gun show was today, and I missed the advice... so now I get the oppurtunnity to learn the hard way. Illlet you guys know how it goes.

On first impression, the scope seems nice enough. The reticule is clear, the mounts seem solid. Past that, I have nothing to compare it to.

Ill let you know how it works on the range.

I recently bought this AIM optic from a friend:

http://www.ifatactical.com/files/177295 ... 7-x-42.jpg

I attached it to my new Ruger 10/22 in an Archangel Nomad stock and took it to the range today. I was pretty impressed, although it isn't super clear at max magnification it is still a pretty nice scope for a .22. Once it was zeroed it was spot on and kept zero all day. The fit and finish are pretty good, illumination is nice and bright and the mounting hardware is solid and good quality.

I am going to throw it on my AR next weekend to see how it handles the .223 but I am pretty optimistic it won't let me down.

I shot yesterday with the new optic on my M1A Squad Scout. It seemed to hold zero just fine, and mounted up solidly. I'm going to have to see later on how well the BDC actually works.

Just a quick update... I think I may have to employ some Loc Tite on the threads of the scope rings. It seems like the recoil of the rifle is rattling the screws loose, which isn't good if you want to hold a zero. Im thinking I may just want to switch my Aimpoint from my AR instead of using this.

I dunno about the whole cheap scope thing. To me scopes fall into the "buy once, cry once" category. You can get a very solid scope for $300-400ish. I would hold off a couple months and stash some cash.

Just put an AIM pistol scope(2-7x32) on my Mosin using .22 rings and the dovetail under the rear sight. Put around 50 rounds through it held zero fine.
