new scope

I did something that is only the second time in my life, I purchased a lower end scope and hope it works out. I couldn't afford to spend the bigger bucks this time, so I got a Pentax gamekeeper (I think its called) in 4x12x40 for the Win 88 in 308 cal. Sportsman's guide had them for a song and dance (well under $100.00) like 84.00 with shipping plus you get $20.00 in cash coupons. so we'll see. It's a bullet drop model maybe it will give me a several years of service. Anyone use Pentax products and what's the service been? Thanks.

No pentax experience for me. Finding good quality lower priced scopes is good for all of us when we are broke and in need of a scope. Let us know how it works out.

When I bought my 30-.06 at auction it came with a bushnell scope on it. So I have no experience w/the pentax... good luck with it though
