By David from USA on 2012-07-02 04:35:46Things I liked:This scope has a considerable number of features for the money and is a great value! As a dealer I get all the info! For PCP or Co2 etc. Air Rifles it works great! I wouldn't suggest if for Nitro Piston & Spring guns though, I have personal experience there. 1st.> The 30mm tube offer very good light transmission even with an ARD attached like I use. 2nd.> The 9 Mil Dots each side of center are great for making adjustments for both Holdover & Windage and they are clear and sharp and small enough not to block the view even at distance. 4th.> Proper initial adjustment of the rear eye piece should be done while looking at a clear blue sky to adjust it for a sharp crisp image of the Mil Dots. Then the SWAT with a big Wheel adjustment pressed on it really makes focusing so much easier and more precisely done with the left hand while holding the rifle too! I like the 100mm Big wheel over the 80. 5th.> Leapers includes Medium? padded scope rings with a large diamond shaped tightening nuts which are very nice, hold securely and easy to use. Although they also make quick release rings too. For a Weaver base receiver, Leapers also has a conversion rail to allow the use of Picatinny mounts to be used, which are my choice. 6th.> The locking cross hair Turret wheels are also a very nice feature, just don't over tighten them. The turrets have nice crisp knob adjustments too.
Things I would have changed:1st.> I like to see the numbers for the power setting ring put on the side of that ring closest to the eye peace for easy viewing by the shooter to determine what power setting is being used especially if power adjustments are made. 2n.> While the built on sunshade is nice in some respects I'd rather see the front of the scope flat and threaded to make it easier to add an ARD an [Anti-Reflection Device a honey comb grid] on too it. This can also be camo-ed so the front lens isn't notieable by game at all. And a screw in a short tube and be able to screw another on to the first if a longer tube is desired.
What others should know: The EZ-Tap Ritcle illumination with it's 36 colors to choose from is a great feature to contrast with your target, especially in dim light! Once a shade of your choice is chosen and the button is depressed briefly to turn it off, that same shade reappears when turned on again. Shade choice clarified: The 'R' button on the Right, is used to choose whichever of the 6 basic colors you want? The 'G' on the Left is used to chose the shade intensity within whatever shade is choosen with the 'R' button!

By Jacob from USA on 2014-07-18 14:02:06Things I liked:Magnification range Plethora of illumination colors Clarity (for the price) Detailed user manual Dust caps included
Things I would have changed:PLETHORA of illumination colors User Manual - not entirely model specific Dust caps - they wiggle around and don't stay in place all the time
What others should know:Overall I'm pretty conflicted in the purchase of this scope. I neither love it, nor hate it. Combine that outlook with a majorly annoying experience in barrel droop, and having a heck of a time getting a consistent grouping with a shimmed scope. I'm trying to find reasons not to sell it. I put this on a Stoeger X20S. It was a very accurate rifle with stock optics. I feel like I have way too much scope for the rifle. Adjusting higher magnification to get acceptable clarity at shorter ranges just doesn't happen the way I would like it to. If I had another UTG Leapers Scope in a lower power to compare it to I could be more fair, and maybe realistic. I can't say I'd recommend another person to purchase it. Aside from my criticisms, I want to experiment with a quiet .22 caliber pellet rifle at longer ranges, and this scope will help me do that. I hope.
