How about this scope?

Post by Tim:H11 on 11/10/2017, 12:55 pm

Does anyone own this model or have they ever tried this scope before? What do you think? 


CC 12-50X50mm 45 Degree Spotting Scope

I have one. I like it. Fits well in the box. Can see .22 holes @ 50 yards under most lighting conditions. For the money I think it is a deal.

I went back and forth between the 12-50X50 and the 12-36X60.  I was able to test them side by side at Perry and I went with the 12-36X60 because I shoot indoor leagues in the winter and I thought the 60 would be better in low light, it is.  BUT if I were to do it again I'd probably go with the one you are looking at the 12-50X50 because it is hard to see the 22 holes @ 50yds with only 36 max magnification.

I can typically see 22 holes just fine at 20X but recently tried a Celestron and no matter the power it was set to it would not focus clearly at 50 yards. I was not impressed at all. And so this Cahmpions Choice model, though it may cost more, I figured I’d ask first since it’s another inexpensive model. And with glass, well, you get what you pay for. Thanks guys.

Jason, if you're not in a hurry wait and look through my Celestron too, the one you saw may have had issues. I like mine a lot, lets put it this way if I was gonna spend more than the Celestron I would go all out and get a Kowa.

Used my new Celestron I saw recommended on this site.  Paid like 48 bucks via Amazon..Used it yesterday at indoor rimfire and I could see every hole anyplace on the target at 50 ft easy!  Few folks looked thru it and were surprised at how bright and clear it was.  50 bucks well spent.  If I had the coin I'd jump on the Kowa in a heartbeat..Sometimes we have to make do.

I’m in no hurry. My current scope for bullseye is an old Bushnell Competitor and I like it but it’s a straight eye piece and I’d like an angled one. My other scope is an angled eye piece but it’s my black powder scope and it’s a little bigger than needed and is pretty scarred up from setting off a percussion revolver right next to it and a flint pistol vent hole breathing fire on it occasionally. 

I looked through someone’s bigger celestron at the State Match and it was not all that different from my smaller model I bought. Not very clear. I gave mine to my gun club for public use. I’m hesitant on the larger model but I could try it again and see. But I’ll say this - of the few I’ve seen only two were good.

Not to change the subject too much, but if you're looking for about the best quality scope for pistol shooting. 

https://estore.thecmp.org/Catalog/Item/832

Expensive, but very clear and CMP has the last of them.  About the best all around for quality vs size vs weight with 45 degree eyepiece.  Price point is a bit high, but I've never seen one that didn't have great optics.  You can see .22 holes at Perry on the first relay with overcast and rain.

Cecil have you ever looked through a NG30 scope ? Debating the KOWA or waiting for a 30 to come up

Chris and CR10X,

No doubt the Kowa, and the NG are wonderful pieces of equipment, and I would love to be able to own something along those lines someday. I’m just simply not in a position to spend that much on a spotter right now and I’m not sure when I might be. This is a pricey game to play keep in mind and when money needs to be spent on ammunition, travels costs, match fees, and guns as they need repair or maintenance, sometimes it leaves little room to afford something nicer in a different department. So something that meets basic criteria will have to suffice. 

Thank you very much though and again the Kowa and NG would no doubt be on my radar had I been in a different position. My hopes are to find something in the $100 +/- range.

For the Money check out the MinoX MD50. One of the best bargains out there at its price range. Opticsplanet sells them.

It's a very compact scope with excellent glass.  I own quite a few of their rifle scopes and their glass is amazing

Tim:  I understand.  Went through the same process myself.  (Actually, several spotting scopes.) And yes, I started with straight and ended up with the 45 degree.  Eventually settled on the little NG and the Kowa TS501 depending on range, gun box used, etc.  I would suggest if you are interested in that particular scope, try to find a place that will let you try it out.  Visual quality and resolution (focusing) was great on some, not quite as good on others.  

Chris.  As stated I settled on the little NG 20X33 and a Kowa TS501.  NG 30X50 and Kowa were about the same size volume wise,. but the NG was smaller, being thinner but a little longer, if I remember correctly.  Quality was much better for the Kowa (they don't show up used very often either). For the space that they took up, the light gathering of the Kowa was better.  And I didn't need the 30X.

Yes, for the price, the Russian touring 6 is ok.  

Early on, I got to looking at dryfiring as my "savings plan" for purchasing one time cost stuff (guns, reloaders, equipment, etc.).  Every dryfiring session for a couple of years was followed by; "Yep, a few dollars closer to a Dillon 650!"

Jason, I am an old man and I can lean over and look thru a straight scope. The Burris Compact is the best decent priced scope I have found. Easy to see .22 holes at 50yds, easy to focus with focus knob and also works great at 50 ft. I have N.F.I. in this scope just like them.

Personally, I would look for a spotter with a rotating ring mounting system.  

Right now I have a very old champion choice spotter that rotates around.  Been thinking about the Kowa but I am not sure I want to abandon the rotating mount against the better quality optics.  

So far, the current scope is working at 50 yards so I have held back the 300 bucks purchase.  

Sincerely, 
Crankster
