Things I liked: The CAPABILITY this scope brings to my Diana 460 Magnum .22, as well as me the shooter, seeking to become as good a shot as I can be. This scope gives you everything you'll need to more assuredly identify just what might be standing in your way towards that ultra-lethal accuracy we all are seeking. A shot group the size of a dime at 30 yards is not an easy thing to attain regardless of what some of these reviews might say, but with this scope properly mounted and a scientific approach towards becoming the best you can be with your airgun, you can get there. Keep practicing, keeping thinking, keep learning - this is the fun of airgunning!
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: As you would expect, this scope is fairly heavy. Along with a heavy airgun, you should expect most of your shooting, even in the field to be from the rested position. Determine what power setting you wish to use based upon the size of your target and the expected range you will be shooting at it from. When your target presents itself, estimate its range and set the AO to that range by using its graduated setting. Take aim and adjust ocular lens, then do a final touch-up focus with the AO. You should have a razor-sharp image of your target to devastate with a well-executed shot. Happy shooting!
Things I liked: Excellent piece of equipment that I have all the confidence in. I like its versatility in that just about any scope and ring configuration can be mounted on the Diana with this Base, unlike the RWS one-piece that will not accommodate a compact scope.
Things I would have changed: Perhaps go with a 4-bolt clamp for the dove-tail like the RWS one-piece instead of the current 3-bolt. No problems encountered as yet, but it does stand to reason that a 4-bolt would be a little better.
What others should know: This Base works very well on my Diana 460 Magnum. Looks good too. I highly recommend this Base.
