The Top Selling Scopes of 2017 From Pyramyd Air
Pyramyd Air’s 2017 top selling scopes list gives us another interesting insight into the riflescope market.
What we see is that, basically, the top selling scopes over the past three years are quite consistent in optical type. However, the brands that make the list have changed rather more.
In an unprecedented example of consistency, the CenterPoint 4-16x40AO scope has held the number one position in Pyramyd Air’s top selling scopes list for each year. That has to be a great product!
