Well, a few years back I picked up a BSA Sweet .22 for my bull barreled 10/22 and I've truly been surprised by the clear sight picture, easy adjustment, etc. Generally speaking, I'm very negative about cheap scopes, but I can honestly say that the Sweet .22 has been satisfactory in every way. I've had 3 BSA air rifle scopes and two 36x rifle scopes, so I'm not blind to the various faults of BSA products. Once of the 4x air rifle scopes broke and the two 36x scopes are completely different physically even though they are nominally the same model. I would rate one as mediocre but usable and the other one as very marginal.
I think two, maybe three of the scopes were freebie premiums on purchases from Grafs; the others were acquired by the combination of eBay access and boredom. While I have significant reservations about BSA, the Sweet .22 has been pretty good. Especially for the very modest $$.
