Chinese scope

I dug our a Chinese scope that was part of an A2 carbine purchase several years ago, I had kind of forgotten about it, probably thought it was worthless junk and stashed it away.

I think I tried it quickly with the carbine then, but donít remember how it performed, so I decided to mount it on my SP1 rifle and to take it to the range.



Guess the previous owner was embarrassed by itís provenance

At the range, 50 meters indoor with a rest bag






It performed surprisingly well, although 50 meters isnít much of a distance, so Iíll have to try it at the 300 meters outdoor range in the spring.

Iíd prefer an original vintage Colt, but I never found one in good condition at a decent price. And the Brownells repro is quite expensive here (Switzerland)

The SP1 carbine with open sights performed almost as well.

Well, it looks appropriate on that rifle, and you shot well. Maybe it will hold up. They do make our cell phones and other high tech stuff. In my own experience, I used to travel to China as a condition of my job. I wasn't impressed. Lots of unoccupied, poorly constructed, gigantic buildings. Trash everywhere. As polluted as India. Zillions of people taking advantage of each other and gullible foreigners and tourists. I feel that most of their manufacturing is shoddy, their quality control is non-existent, and they cut corners wherever possible with no regard to producing something that will last. But that's me. Good luck with your scope.

Thumbs up

JUST saw your post on M4C, and then saw it with my next click here!


Somebody there suggested the Cherokee cheek rest; I use one on my PTR-91. If you find an exact match for your stock, they make good kit.

I bought a DPMS AR .223/5.56 camo gun new a few years back(forgot which model)….no more money for any quality optics or anything I thought suitable in my stash for an optic. Hard to shoot a flat-top with no optics at all so I bought a cheap Wal Mart Chinese red dot 'scope' to put on it temporarily.

I pulled the hang-tag off the trigger guard and cut the Chinese red dot from the blister pack and screwed it on. Bore sighted the assembly and didn't have to un-screw the scopes adjust covers...it was spot-on!...Ok..so my son and I take it to the range and give it a try. Very close to perfect! The DPMS and cheap Chinese red dot needed just a couple clicks left and it was there and superbly accurate!

For some reason it really impressed me that the new DPMS carbine/cheap Chinese red dot combo fell together so accurately as brand new items. Shortly after I fitted a new Munstrum scope to the same DPMS carbine with much the same results...new scope bolts right on and is on target. This leads me to believe that it is a damn fine rifle and not so much the optics

I have cheap Chinese-made red dots on a couple of rifles that have actually given me much better service than the $500 POS EOTech I once owned. Just because it's Chinese doesn't mean it's garbage and just because it's US-made doesn't mean it's quality.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Well, those HAVE to work good. Imagine all the Asian women who'd flip their lid if they didn't!
