Hi all most people don't have a scope some people not even have access to a scope i am one of these people i have only ever used a scope in tafe sure i know how to set them up with my project and understand what i am looking at.

But Buying one for cheap well this is what this all about.

how do i know if China is going to rip me off with some cheap gimmic?

how can i know if ebay is really going to send me a scope?

second hand scope's are they good as new?

one company nearly made me lol they said that they would not refund or send new product if there is damage to cosmetics the first thing i thought of what if there is a scratch on the screen to me thats not cosmetic because you need the screen to be able to messure as well.

so people out there who have scopes tell us noobs what to look for.

Thank you all for your help and i hope this help other people as well.
