Guys,

Can you tell me if any of these scopes are worthwhile? I can't find much about them on Google. A guy is selling these, and this is the photo he emailed.

3-9×40 Black Arrow
3.5-10×50 Vivitar
3-9×32 Tasco

An adjustable objective (AO) is desirable on airgun scopes. This would allow the shooter to focus the scope at a closer distance. None of the three scopes shown in the picture appear to have AO.

I have the Tasco 3-9x32 and like it. I had to adjust the parallax to around 20 meters, but it's a rather simple procedure:

I unfortunately don't know the two others.

Never heard of Black Arrow.
Tasco...same quality as low end Bushnell.
Vivitar has been out of business 20 years.
Unless they're about $10 each (or $25 for the three of them), I'd pass.
