By Dean from USA on 2010-07-08 23:47:35Things I liked:Bright, clear image, Mil-dots, easy to adjust windage & elevation turrets, rugged construction, flip up covers, solid Picatinny/Weaver mounts, Great Price!
Things I would have changed:Nothing. For the money I don't think you will find a better 4x32 scope with mounts.
What others should know:Mounted this on my Crosman 1400 using the Air Venturi Intermount with Picatinny rail. Sits a little high but no biggie. Turned my treasured old .22 pump rifle plinker (with blade and ramp sights) into a much more accurate air rifle. So far I've been able to hit the 7 ring on a 25' qualification target at 50 yards with this scope (and 8 pumps) after a bit of sighting in. I'm sure I can do better on a calmer day with a bit more practice and a little less coffee. This scope is very nice and more than adequate for this class of air rifle, in my opinion. Very satisfied!

By David from USA on 2014-02-02 00:25:23Things I liked:I liked the scope for its clear optics, mildot crosshairs and appearance. It was also trim enough to be able to use the sights of my Umarex Octane when mounted with Traditions see-through mounts.
Things I would have changed:It is just not a tough enough scope to hold zero for a shooter like me. I will keep this scope for other uses than a spring piston or gas piston break-barrel. I have given away scopes similar to this that would not hold zero for me, but held zero just fine for another shooter with the same model of rifle. The only difference is that he has a lighter build. I strongly suspect the same would be true for this scope.
What others should know:Shooters who are heavily muscled and with hard shoulders may find that they go through scopes very quickly. The shock to the scope from heavy recoil is enhanced on people like us. I have noticed this phenomenon in high powered rifles too, and tend to avoid the more fragile variable scopes for tougher fixed power. Now I shall have to do my old standby trick for the Octane: I will mount an artillery optical sight or panzerfaust sight on this pellet gun using an all steel AK47 mount. This will take a bit of welding and modification but will be relatively easy as the Octane has a picatinny rail. This will be the sixth time I have done this trick. I have used this absolutely recoil proof and very accurate arrangement with great success on a two high powered rifles, three twenty-two rifles, and another enhanced recoil airgun, a .22 Benjamin Titan. The whole reason I bought this UTG scope, (second UTG, second bust) was my wish to avoid the tedious and exacting welding that goes into altering an original steel AK47 mount. Artillery sights and antitank gun sights have no movable crosshairs, but instead use fixed etched markings. The Ak47 mount has full adjustment capability. So when these two are merged you have a very tough setup with low (2.5 or 2.6 power) magnification and great clarity. If you are built like me this UTG may not be a good break-barrel scope for you, and you may have to spend more money, or attempt a modification similar to what I have described.
