What do you guys think of Simmons Scopes? Thinking of putting one on Shotgun for Turkeys.

Plus thinking of a regular Crossbow Scope for my Crossbow. Now have a Rangefinder which I feel person needs with these kinds of Scopes.

Anyone deal through Amazon for this stuff?

The Simmons 4X Pro Diamond shotgun scope is a good one.   i've used that scope  on muzzleloader rifles and my rifled barrel 20 gauge shotgun wears one.

Well I have a regular scope on my Crossbow and do well just don't shoot over 30 yards.

The scope I'm looking at is for 20-60 yards 60 yards is out but regular Crossbow Scope might prove better.

Have a Simmons on my.22 and like it well.

We had scopes returned as not working as advertised, when questioned it was found the customers were using them on muzzleloaders, crossbows and air rifles.

The biggest problem with muzzleloader, crossbow and air rifles is they have a different type of recoil (a push) than the traditional modern rifle (snap) that effects the lenses according to the Burris and Weaver salesmen that we talked to at Cabelas. They wouldn't warranty these scopes which sucked, so we eat them.

I use a red dot scope for turkeys.  For me.....I love it, I wouldn't go any other way.  Fast acquisition, just put that red dot on the caruncles, pull the trigger and go pick up your long beard.  Very Happy

Old red dot scopes seem to be better than what's available today. Burris salesman couldn't say why, but agreed.

Well the scopes I'm looking at are listed for what I'm using them on.

Actually the scope on my Turkey Gun works fine I just broke the plastic piece to lock it down. But have it set and it stays right there.

The one on my Crossbow has always worked well but it is a regular Rifle Scope set at 30 yards. 40 aim little high, 20 aim a little low.

Got Vortex on a Muzzleloader and one on a Slug Gun, got a Nikon on another Muzzleloader.

Today scopes are designed for all kinds of applications, just make sure the scope you have is used correctly made for that gun then there shouldn't be any issues if there's a problem.
