Default BSA Scopes

I traded a gas r/c car for a BSA platinum series 3-9 x 50 scope last night. What is everyones opinion on these scopes? Was that a good trade or should I have sold the car and then bought another scope?

Don't know how much that car was worth, nor do I know the price on the scope...If you didn't need the R/C, then you made a good deal I suppose.

BSA makes low end scopes ,
I hope the car wasn't worth much . All the ones I've seen were listed in Sportsman's Guide , most were under $100 .

well the car was about $900 brand new and it only a couple of years old with hardly any run time on it. It is probably worth $500 - $600 but i would need to find just the right person to buy it for that much. I never use it and not planning on it (not enough time anymore). The scope is a platinum series. The prices i found for that series was between $199 - $250. I could use the scope for the last couple of weeks of the season.

I have a BSA Deer Slayer 3x9x40 on my Knight Woverine muzzleloader and I think it's a great scope. It gets subjected to a lot of crud when I shoot and I just wash it down with soap and water when I clean my muzzleloader. Been doing this for a couple years and so far haven't had any problems with it. I've owned other brands of scopes that I wouldn't do this to. I think you'll be happy with it and in my opinion it definately has more value to than the gas RC car. You can't hunt with a toy car.

good to hear somebody likes their bsa.....your right though, anyway you look at it, it is worth more to me to have the scope. Anybody else with an opinion on them?
