Default What is the quality of a Millett scope?

I was wondering what people thought about Millett scopes (good or bad).

thanks

I sold some Millet scopes when I worked at Academy Sports and Outdoors, but never got to try one in the field or at the range. Hopefully, they're built to the same standards as their rings, but you can never assume that with something as intricate as a rifle scope. They were pretty clear though.

If they're on par with their rings, I wouldn't have one.

Really? I've had them on 4 different rifles and never had a problem with them.

I guess to be fair I should have mentioned that I've only tried one set of Millet rings and that was for my Sako 75, which has the integral dovetails. Maybe for a more conventional setup they'd be okay, I don't know. They didn't work worth a hoot on my gun, though.

Millet scopes I haven't a clue. I've used Millet Rings on many rifles and never had a complaint.The Millets I used are like the Redfield JR/SR that twist in.I wouldn't hesitate buying any of the Millet rings.I bought a set of Millet Angle-Loc's for my little 17HMR Savage. I was impressed the way they installed. Haven't tried them yet but I'm sure they'll be first class.

I blew two sets of Millet rings off my contenders, 1 off a 445 SM, 1 off of a 223. I'd still like to try one of thier scopes tho.
