Default Cabela's Alaskan Guide Scopes

I've been looking at these scopes to put on my new 25-06 and 7mag. They seem like nice scopes in the store, but there is only so much you can tell indoors w/ lots of light. I'm looking at the 4.5-14x44 models. They seem like quite a bit of glass for $279. Any experiences with these scopes would be appreciated. Thanks, Brett

I'm not sure who makes those scopes for Cabela's. I would check with www.swfa.com and see which of the Nikon Monarch scopes are left on their big sale. Great scope, and a lot of them were cheaper than the Alaskan Guide.

A friend of mine has one on his .17, heabsolutely loves it. I don't know who makes it, but it looked pretty darn good to me.

I was told by a guy behind the Cabela's gun counter that Pentax makes these.

I have one and love it. I have a varmint model scope in 6.5-20x44 with the adjustable objective and mildot reticle. The nice thing about cabela's is they have a great return policy and you can try things out to see if you like them. I tried like 4 or 5 scopes until I found the one I liked. From a Cheap 100 BSA (not cheap for BSA I guess) to an almost 600 dollar leupold (don't remember the model). I liked the cabela's scope better so I bought it.

When I have talked to the people at Cabela's they say they don't have a clue who makes what scope for them. And it varies from model to model. They buy from most of the major commpanies, and some are even made right at the optics plant in Japan for them. I compared mine to other scopes and it looks very much like a Nikon. I found one that was very close in looks and features (for more money) to the one I bought with the cabela's name on it. They were made in the same optics plant in Japan as well. This has been a few years ago though, so things may have changed. Cabela's likes to do that I have noticed.

Mine is also on a 17 HMR.
