By David from USA on 2013-03-01 22:16:12Things I liked:Excellent optical quality, nicely made, came with very decent rings and the "hunter turrets" are much nicer to use than standard plastic adjusters.
Things I would have changed:I liked the softer/rounded metal contours of the previous generation of Leapers scopes, but that's really just nit-picking.
What others should know:This scope is billed as having the "emerald" coatings (supposedly higher light transmission), but mine came with the standard blue lens coating, despite that it has really decent resistance to flare and very respectable low light performance. In my opinion, having a fixed power scope makes the mil-dot reticle much easier to use effectively than it is with a zoom scope. This is a great scope for the money!

By John P from USA on 2013-11-22 10:22:36Things I liked:Feels solid. Clear optics edge-to-edge. Repeatable windage and elevation adjustments. Mounted to my inexpensive Ruger Air Hawk and shot close to point of aim prior to adjusting. Nice. Scope caps are ok. Of course you'll need to remove and replace scope caps as they rotate with the adjustable objective and with the ocular adjustment. Short, light weight.
Things I would have changed:The only things I would change would mean buying a different scope. I suppose adjustable power is nice, but don't need it. I imagine that an illuminated reticle is fun but would never use it. Schmancy target turrets for windage and elevation together with a side wheel for objective adjustment would make me feel real professional. I'm not. It's a simple, light weight, relatively compact scope with clear optics and repeatable adjustments that holds its zero solidly, and in a useful power for target and plinking. What more could I ask? Maybe a different reticle. A simple cross hair would be an improvement for me. I find the mil dot reticle/system annoying and next to useless. As in, "Hey, squirrel, let me pull out my range calculator so I can dial you in." As if the squirrel will wait.
What others should know:Don't know who or what "Leapers" (TM) is, don't care. The scope is marked "UGT" (TM).
