I purchased a Sun Optics scope at the Texas Airgun Show.  The gentleman let me take the scope outside and look it over, and it looked good at the time.  He said it was a $500 scope new, but this scope had been displayed at several shows so he sold it to me for $250.

This is the model:
CS4053056IR
ULTRA VARIABLE
5-30X56
MIL DOT RET.
30 MM TUBE
RED/GREEN IR

Unfortunately, since I took it home and mounted it on my rifle, I have realized that it was not as clear as I originally thought.  I regret purchasing it, but I consider that is all my fault.  I need to be more thorough when I look at a scope.  But I do feel that it is worth the $250 that I paid for it.

I do like how well the turrets work.  Single-click adjustments result in changes to the POI.  However, there are no markings to help you keep track of how many turns you make.

After using it for a week, the scope seems to keep zero.

I am probably too picky when it comes to visual clarity, and I now realize that I need to spend much more money to get something that I will be happy with.
