Things I liked: This is for those who're not willing to invest time in shooting a springer. Perfect for hunting with surgical accuracy. My .22 took out a rock dove at laser-ranged 47 yds, and the dropped bird was an ugly mess! Highly recommended!
Things I would have changed: More space in the front for scope install. My Sidewinder 30 Tactical is pushed all way to the front for eye relief. I'd also lke to get a .177 in Carbine!!
What others should know: You won't regret! PA shipped it without calling me, like they always do. I had to spend more money buying a scope mount from someone else!, since PA wouldn't add the item to my order. I emailed them about the mount, yet was told the next day they don't check emails, and that I should left a voice mail...
Things I liked: Got this mini as replacement of the full-size SWAT which couldn't hold zero after 5 months on my CFX Royal. So far it's holding up strong, and it seems sturdier than its big brother due to its compact size. Turret, windage and parallex adjustments are tighter than the full-size as well. Optically, the edge appears a little fuzzy (or is it me?)
Things I would have changed: Bundle it with an offset mount. I use a Leapers 1-piece high which I had to push back by one screw, thus leaving about 1 inch of the mount sticking out and hanging in the air. Now I don't need to buy another offset mount.
What others should know: Leapers' customer support is top notch, just like Hawke. I will buy Leapers AGAIN!
