A comfortable rubber eyepiece, with the help of quick focus and zoom knobs, help you zero in on your quarry at short or long distances. When you’re ready to pack it up, the Firefield 20x50 spotting scope, along with its compact tripod, stows easily and securely into the durable nylon carrying case with shoulder strap. The Firefield 20x50 spotting scope is backed by Firefield’s manufactures warranty and the quality that comes with the Firefield name. Firefield-Victory Justifies Everything!
The good. This scope is reasonably compact although too large to fit in an average coat pocket, the image is bright and clear, better than I expected at this price. It came with a coated nylon case, nylon strap, cleaning cloth, mini tripod, lens caps, warranty card and instruction booklet. The tripod can be folded up and used as a handle. Tripod has rubber feet to prevent it from sliding around. The rear lens cap fit snugly but was not difficult to remove or replace. The bad. Unfortunately this scope is not remotely 20X. I have a pair of Simmons 8x25 and this scope is only a smidgen more powerful, I would estimate the Firefield at 10X [see update at bottom]. The instruction booklet was for an adjustable power spotting scope, in other words it was the wrong booklet for this model; not a big issue as I didn't need instructions but it says something about quality control. The front lens cap is very loose fitting and I am 100% sure it would be lost in the field, if used.
It has clear optics as several others have said in their reviews. However the power is very disappointing, it is advertised as a 20 power but it is far less than that. I wanted it for in the deer stand to give me a closer look than my 10 power binoculars. It is barely more powerful than that. I would say at best they are maybe 12 power - so for what I wanted them for they are useless.
great little spotting scope - we used at 25 yds for all calibers on splatter targets. Very clear. wont say much for tripod - that's a joke - go get a camera spider leg tripod for 3 bucks . But it was very clear and the right price. We have scopes on all our rifles anyway but for someone to watch and participate with the shooter this is great.
I've used my share of spotting scopes from cheap ones at the range to a friend's 12-40x60 Leupold that cost quite a pretty penny. This is a great scope for the money. The only drawback as mentioned in another review is the "tripod". It's pretty small. I'm going to have to use a phone book or two to prop it up this weekend, but I plan to buy a different tripod soon.
This is is exactly what I paid for. 5 stars great quality glass and picture. I'm sure there are better but this is what I needed and what I needed!
I've been trying to use this spotting scope for a couple of years but beyond 15 yards or so I've found it to be pretty much useless. Finally gave up on it and picked up a 20-60x60 spotting scope and am very happy I finally gave up on the Firefield.
I read the reviews before I purchased this product.. And for the price it is very nice.
Great center clarity and sharpness, very surprised for the price
I bought this item hoping to get light and powerful scope, unfortunately I it is nowhere near 20x magnification. It has exactly same field of view as my 10x50 Celestron binoculars.
Was very happy with this product.
lightweight, solid build, with great clarity. Easy to pocket for on the go jobs
