Things I liked: The UTG 3-9x50 has impressive light gathering capabilities with sharp edge to edge clarity usually associated with more expensive scopes. the mil-dot reticle is just the right thickness and takes the guess work out of accurate shot placement with my .22cal Beeman HW97K. holds zero with lockable windage and elevation turrets. parallax adjustable down to 5 yards for close range practice in the basement. the adjustable eye piece is especially nice and 3/8" dovetail high mounting rings are included.

Things I would have changed: I would like to see this scope offered w/o the illuminated reticle, as it's a feature I don't use.

What others should know: This is a quality, full size, do anything, scope that comes with nice flip-open lens caps and sunshade.

Things I liked: 15 foot focus 50 mm objective - lots of light 3 x 9 magnification Adjustable Objective 1" tube

Things I would have changed: I feel the colored, illuminated reticle is not necessary.

What others should know: This scope has a lot going for it and UTG normally has good quality. However, this scope arrived shooting almost 2' LOW at 29' range. I had to shim the rear scope by .060 (60 thousandths of an inch) to get it close to center. However, shimming any scope this high can introduce unwanted stress on the tube by the front ring so one must be careful how tight you make the screws. Otherwise, I recommend the scope and hopefully you won't get one like I did. That's the reason I gave it 3 stars overall.

    Things I liked: I had to wait for my air rifle to arive, this gave me a chance to review scopes I felt I could afford. I wanted a scope that would focus to 5 yards, have 50 MM view, was versatile and take the air rifle shock.

    Things I would have changed: The front Fold down ring has the hinge mount and two other small knobs that can interfer with rotating the front of the scope with the barrel. I am not using these caps at this time.

    What others should know: I read Tom Gaylord's instructions on mounting and zeroing the scope while waiting for the air rifle. This information made everything go well.
