REVIEW BY: Ronnie Hartley Thursday, January 17, 2013
Just got this scope, and put it on my Marlin Bolt action .17 I love it for the $$$$$
REVIEW BY: Boothill Tuesday, January 08, 2013
Have had the Sweet .17 for a number of years very accurate at all ranges,never had any problems with it. The finish they used then was like a rubber coating,it got real sticky,sent in to BSA and explained the problem,they in return sent me a new Sweet .17. Best customer service that I have received in quite a few years. THANK YOU BSA.
REVIEW BY: Sterling Thursday, January 03, 2013
I have one on my 917V. Love it. The only problem I have had was my fault when I forgot to check the range adjustment and it was shooting high at 100. The thing is perfect. at 300 yards all I have to compensate for is wind. I am planning on getting a .223 scope for my Mini-14.
REVIEW BY: Roger Tuesday, November 20, 2012
Great scope but blurry at 18X 17X and below is fine.
REVIEW BY: scott bird Friday, November 09, 2012

I took a chance with this scope and put it on my savavge 17hmr and its awesome, all you have to do is dope your scope to the distance, read the wind, and shoot, i like it so far

Really love these scopes. We sell them at the store (Dunham's Sports) I work at. I just ordered one and hope I love it as much as everyone else on here does. Really pumped about it. Btw, There are no Sunshades for this scope from BSA. I'll post again later, but you may have to get a Mueller APV 40MM sunshade for it.

very clean wiew.great scope.
REVIEW BY: Ben Herrmann - Fuquay Varina, NC Friday, September 30, 2011
I'm a retired Marine and still quite active in various marksmanship endeavors. As such, I've easily tried over 50 different types of scopes over the past 10 years (and what seemed like as many brands). But I finally settled in on just using various BSA model scopes. You just can't beat BSA's overall cost/performance ratio. I purchased 3 of these Sweet 6-18 rifle scopes - which I managed to get for a steal (during a sale at the Sportsmans Guide online store). When they arrived, I was taken aback at their qualiy, level of, and overall optical clarity, etc. I put on them on several of my AR's and they've been there ever since. They are exceptionally accurate scopes and having the extra top elevation knobs for different grain .223 rounds really makes a different. Heck, I spent almost $500 for a Nikon scope that has the same options and features that the BSA Sweet series has!!!! Go figure.... As I said, I've been absolutely delighted and more than satisfied with all of the diffe
REVIEW BY: Idaho Hunter Wednesday, February 16, 2011
This scope is a must Take into consideration the price you paid for your rifle the cost of ammunition. This scope will turn most shooters in to experts The optics are more than clear, adjustments are simple and easy to change on the move I bought the 17-618X40 for a NEF Sportster 17hmr and love it, two of my shooting buddies bought it after I schooled them shooting rock chucks the first weekend after I purchased it
REVIEW BY: Michael Monday, December 13, 2010
Just purchased BSA 22LR any suggetions on the ammo to use? I usually use 40 grain ammo. Brand and grain for the best accuracy?
REVIEW BY: Bill Monday, August 16, 2010
I have one of these on my New England Arms single shot .17 Sportster. Love it. Once I got it dialed in prairie dogs seem to disappear at 200 yards!
REVIEW BY: mossberg 817 Tuesday, June 08, 2010
just put an bsa 4-16x40 illuminated reticle mil dot scope on my mossberg model 817 .17HMR . it came with a four inch sunshade and two batteries and alluminum lens caps that screw in..... much better than sweet series had to do a little trjectory study online but was simple. mil dot reticle makes long range varmit shots easy as pie. its only $99.99 at academy sports too. illuminatd reticle makes evening shots unlimited. forget the sweet series.

REVIEW BY: Terry R (MS) Wednesday, February 17, 2010
So far has worked great, on at 100 but had to put it on 165 to be on at 200. Went right back on at 100. I love it. BUT so far been trying for 3 days to contact BSA, by email,fax and phone, NO LUCK. This scares me. I just want to buy a sunshade for my scope. I hope I DONT have any trouble with the scope because I cant reach them.Maybe they will read this.
REVIEW BY: jim Sunday, February 14, 2010
always good luck with bsa scopes.put a sweet 22 on rifle for sighting,when adjusting magnification crosshairs turned in every direction.scope going to company for repair.putting a sweet 17 on tomorrow.crossing my fingers.thanks for a very decent product.
REVIEW BY: Kevin Saturday, January 23, 2010
I have this scope on my 17hmr, the sweet name is true. I had the bushnell super 17, good scope but only 3.5-10 and the yardage only went to 200yrds. I would like to see 150grain in 7mm and 58 or 55grain in 243 and I will buy two more bsa scopes
REVIEW BY: Frank Dudley Jr. Thursday, November 19, 2009
"SWEET" Says it all This is by far the finest scope I have ever owned. Mounted on a Savage .17hmr/bull barrel is the perfect combination. From 20 Yds. to 350 Yds. everything is in range. I'm very impressed. 1/2" group at 100 Yds. Varmets Beware!
REVIEW BY: Bennie Musselwhite Monday, November 16, 2009
I put this scope on a Savage 17hmr, and love it. Longest shot so far was at 280 yards and was in the bullseye. Liked it so much that I have bought 2 Sweet 22 scopes which are dead on also.
REVIEW BY: JEFF ATKINS Monday, October 26, 2009
Had a .17 for almost a year and i really enjoyed it. Seemed i could shoot anything i could see with it. Got a 6x18x40 for my birthday and almost like i got a brand new gun also. Now i can use my spotting scope to find things and drop it everytime. longest shot- 345 yards to get a crow. great scope!!
REVIEW BY: buddy clark Wednesday, February 25, 2009
i love the sweet series scopes i just wish b.s.a. would make a sweet 204 ruger. i love my sweet 17 6x18x40 i would also like to see the sweet series in 221.fireball,17.rem i think they should make them for almost every application. i own 12 b.s.a. scopes in just about all varieties .hands down i think there the best bang for the buck.i would not buy any other brand even if they were cheaper priced bottum line you can't go wrong with b.s.a in my opinion
REVIEW BY: Carl Fox Friday, January 30, 2009
a freind initoduced me to the sweet scope on his remington hmr and i liked it so much i had to have i bought a savage heavy barrel and a 3X12X40 and love it am looking at a sweet for my new 223 savage h/b oh yeah. and dreaming of a sweet 308
REVIEW BY: Thursday, December 25, 2008
i bought the sweet 17-618x40 and was amazed with the clarity and durability of this scoop. I have hunted many times in the rain and snow with mine and NO STEAM EVER . i let my brother and dad take it and try it out, needless to say they both have one now.
REVIEW BY: Lloyd Rainboth Sunday, December 21, 2008
The sweet series are great I have one on my 17hmr and one on my 222 savage. it is great for the long range shots with extream clarity, perfect for playing golf. at three hundred yards i can repeatedly hit the golf ball with ease. Thanks for an affordable scope that doesn't kill the wallet.
REVIEW BY: william harris Friday, December 19, 2008
excellent build quality , clear crisp optics i am impressed to say the least
REVIEW BY: David Saturday, November 29, 2008
Took a chance with this scope after I won a .17 at a Delta Waterfowl banquet....didn't want to break the bank outfitting a gun I got for free however I've been so impressed that now I'm looking at BSA for a few of my other guns.
REVIEW BY: Mike Warren Wednesday, October 01, 2008
I purchased the 17-618X40A/O [Item # 17-618X40A/O] scope and have been very happy with the results. Sighted in at 100 yds. and shooting quarter sized groups up to 300 yds. with a turn of the dial. I am Very Happy with this scope! Anyone who says BSA Sweet 17 scopes are no good, has never tried or had this scope, they just put it down because it was cheeper than the scope they bought and cant stand that they paid too much for their highly expensive scope.
REVIEW BY: steve seymour Sunday, September 07, 2008
took a chance with a brand that i never heard of and now i own three of them and am working on buying a fourth one for my ar-15 bull .the sweet 17s are top notch sited both the savage bull and marlin bulls to 100 yards and both guns can do a 1.5 inch group at 300 yards and the scope adjusts for the drop dead on everytime one happy customer just dont know if i want to go tactical or sweet on my next gun
