Rifle Scope Reviews and Comparisons

Welcome to Riflescopespy, those of you who are returning visitors will notice that we have recently made a major update to our site. The rifle scope reviews are now organized under one of the following categories. Best Scopes, Hunting, Tactical, Comparisons, or Rimfire.

Hunting Scopes Hunting Rifle Scopes


Bushnell | Burris | Leupold | Nikon | Redfield | Vortex

Tactical Scopes Tactical Rifle Scopes


AR-15 Scopes | Long Range Tactical | Red Dot Sights


Hunting – We have decided to organize this category by brands, like Nikon, Burris, Leupold and others. Each of our manufacture pages take an overview of the hunting models available in their rifle scope line; and many of the models have a more detailed review page were specifications, pricing info, and other key statistics are given.


Tactical – Unlike the hunting category, the tactical scope section is broken down into types instead of by manufacturer. We currently have three categories under this section: AR-15 optics, Long Range, and Red Dot.


Comparisons – Rifle Scope Spy has grouped many scope models of the same basic configuration together in easy to use side by side comparison charts. Currently there are 1-4x24, 2-7x33, 3-9x40, 3-9x50, and 4-12x40 pages. These charts allow you to compare length, weight, estimated price, field of view, and more for competing models from a variety of different manufactures. Update: We have added target scopes, 300 Blackout scopes, and zombie scopes categories.


Rimfire - Currently our rimfire page consist of three large comparison charts two of which compare 4x magnification rimfire scopes while the third one provides a look at 2-7x magnification models. Currently there is also a 22 rifle scopes page which takes a look at version of rimfire scopes that are specifically calibrated for the 22lr cartridge.
