Things I liked:This is THE mount for RWS rifles. This mount will not shift. Fits RWS Model 48 perfectly. Things I would have changed:Instructions could be more specific as to how much torque the mounting screws can stand. Was afraid to really crank the screws as much as I would like to have. What others should know:Get low rings. I used the Hawke Weaver low rings and they are more than high enough. Would love to find even lower rings.
Things I liked:Very sharp, great resolution. Eye relief pretty consistent across the power range. Focus ring adjusts easily and has sufficient resistance not to move accidentally. Power ring adjusts easily. Things I would have changed:At close range, any scope needs to have the parallax adjustment set close to the actual yardage. With the need for frequent changes, side turret parallax adjustment instead of on the objective lens would be much more convenient. You can not adjust the objective while holding the rifle in shooting position. Just a design preference; nothing wrong with the scope. The adjustable objective yardage markers are pretty close, and at low magnification, the image is clear even inside the stated 10 yard minimum. What others should know:This is about as long a scope as you can use on a RWS Model 48. If the scope were much longer, it would interfere with easy access to the loading port. You could go maybe an inch longer, but that would make loading pretty tough.
Things I liked:High quality rings. The rings fit a picatinny base perfectly. By virtue of the lateral screw resting in the base slot, recoil creep is eliminated. The tape inside the rings does seem to help clamp the scope against movement. Things I would have changed:Would like to find even lower rings. What others should know:Low rings are plenty high enough for an RWS 48 with the UTG picatinny base.
