Things I liked: Very clear glass lens. Easy to see and use reticle. These scopes are easy to adjust to a very fine focus.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: I own four BSA scopes and love them. I have two of these 3-9x40 scopes and have been very satisfided with the clarity and the thin reticles. I did have to tighten both the horizontal and vertical adjustments, which was NO big deal. Simply screw down the adjustment cover until the adjustment mechanism becomes tight. From there you can make all the ajustment "clicks" necessary. I plan on buying a BSA scope for every air rifle I purchase.
Things I liked: Duplex reticle and not too thick.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: I have 3 of the BSA airgun scopes because I like duplex reticles over mil-dot. One of my older 4x models does not have the fast focus eyepiece as the newer models do, nice addition BSA.
Things I liked: The optics on this scope are very clear. I purchased a BSA AR2-7x32 AO scope over a decade ago and have had reasonably good performance from it so far. The word 'Essential' really describes my feelings about it. It is best for target practice with good ambient lighting conditions.
Things I would have changed: Nothing in particular. Maybe introduce a model with the ability of illuminating the reticle for use in poor ambient lighting conditions.
What others should know: The knobs for adjusting the elevation and windage turned rather reluctantly at first, but loosen up after several adjustments had been made.
would this scope do me well with a hatsan 125 .25?
The scope description says it can handle magnum power recoil, but you say that you don't recommend. Who is correct ?
I would not recommend it on such a high power magnum. I would go with a Leapers scope.
