Default NEW 2005 Simmons Aetec ??

Simmons 2005 Pruducts

Have you seen the new Aetec ?
What do you think of the new Simmons line ?

Looks like this is the big change I have been hearing about since Meade took over.

I also noticed they have a new 48 hour turn-a-round guarantee on returns.

I have not seen the new ones but I think they are the best scope for the money anywhere. The Aetec is far and away my favoriet scope. Most of the others have priced themselves out of my leach. Thank to the Aetec, I find no need to sell the farm for a mostly NAME scope.

Agreed JamesB.

For the 130-150 you can buy them new, they are just the best deal out there.

By looking at the catalogue, all the new Aetecs & Pro Hunters w/ parallax adjustments now have side focus

They also have a new Hydroshield lens coating that resists water & fog, kinda like Bushnell's Rainguard I guess.

Just checked it out and read about all the features. I think the competition has some catching up to do. Thats a lot of scope for a mans hard earned dollar.

That was pretty impressive..just by looking at their Blurb doesn't make them out to be the endall but if they are 80% of what they claim to be watch out Leupold. I don't know how anyone can lose with a 48hr turnaround.

I am looking to go with the Aetec scope for two of my rifles, seems they are hard to beat, even compared to the more expensive scopes.
