Bushnell TRS-25: The "Good Enough" optic May 2, 2012 19:01:56 GMT -8

If you only own one rifle for emergency management and defense you should go for quality and this usually means it will cost you. An Aimpoint T-1 is about $500 and a Trijicon ACOG retails for around $800. Both top notch optics that will last you a lifetime. But for your second line rifles or for those on a budget you may want a just "good enough" optic that isn't half a mortgage payment and will work. The Bushnell TRS-25 is just that. Bottom line: its a knock off of the Aimpoint T-1 and its made in China. The good news: you can find one on Amazon.com for $80-$90 and they work great. I own
Average 4 out of 5 stars from 140 reviewers on Amazon, thats good enough for me!
There's nothing like a red dot for fast target acquisition and accuracy in dim conditions, and no one makes red dots like Bushnell. The TRS-25 1x25 red dot riflescope boasts Bushnell's Zoom Dot feature, which gives you the ability to fine tune the size of your aiming point down to one MOA for precision shooting and all the way up to 10 MOA for close quarters. The scope is also engineered with Amber-Bright optics to help you quickly distinguish between a brown tree and a brown critter. Amber-Bright is just one reason Trophy riflescopes have been heralded as the ideal scope for the autumn deer woods. And thanks to the scope's multicoated optics, hunters will have no problem seeing their target in low-light conditions. Other features include a 100-percent waterproof/fogproof/shockproof construction, a dry-nitrogen-filled housing, and a CR2032 battery.
