Things I liked: Decent scope with solid seating even without Lock-Tite (I always mount a scope without Lock-Tite at first to ensure ease of alterations thereafter until I am confident of achieving a sturdy placement.
Things I would have changed: The compartment that holds the battery for the illuminated reticle is unreasonably difficult to open. One day, that battery is going to give up the ghost. How would I change it if I cannot open it with fingers? with fingers and one of those rubber kitchen aids for opening bottles? with a pair of pliers? I've tried them all without success to this point. There is NO reason to ship the scope with that compartment so firmly closed that it seems welded shut.
What others should know: I mount only Leupold scopes on my high powered hunting rifles: I demand clarity and ready-centering from the scopes on my centerfire hunting guns. While the glass is not comparable to what I am most accustomed to, the CenterPoint Optics scope is reasonably clarified and readily centered. I have it mounted on an Benjamin NP2 -- this gas piston airgun does not cause as sharp a rebound "kick" when fired as would a spring piston airgun. But the NP2 does give a solid rap: the scope does not shift center.
Things I liked: The scope is very good for Airgun shooting. I like the fact that you can focus up close. It's hard to argue considering the money spent. Great Value.
Things I would have changed: I wish more companies would drop the illuminated cross hairs and instead use a side focus. Also as many scopes Center point sells, dovetails rings would be nice instead of the weaver rings that I have piling up.
What others should know: I have no idea how this scope would hold up on a firearm, but on my PCP it is a very good scope.
Things I liked: Quality of construction and clarity of optics
Things I would have changed: Can the IR-have no use for it....just adds weight and expense
What others should know: Great, prompt service from PA. A really good buy for the $s
I just purchased this scope for my Stoeger X20s, the mounting rings are to big for the mounting rail. What size and brand do you recommend that I buy so I can mount the scope to it.
It comes with picatinny mounts, you need dovetail. Check out Leapers Accushot 1" Rings, Medium,... which is both inexpensive, very strong and nice looking. That part # is "medium" height which should work with your gun/scope but it will likely put the AO ring very close to the receiver, so close I don't think you;ll be able to put the dust cover on unless you trim it. Most/all the dovetail guns that come with a 40AO have tall rings, which I replace with medium. Not just for the height, but the oem rings aren't as sturdy.
I have a Stoeger X20S, what ring mounts do I need to buy to mount this scope?
I just purchased this scope for my NP2. Should I use the included mounts, or should I go to a one piece heavy duty mount like the Hawke Sport Optics 1pc Match Series 1 in 9-11 mm Rifle Scope Ring Mount, or the Leapers Accushot 1-Pc Mount w/1" Rings, High, 11mm Dovetail. Also, If the one piece is recommend, would I need the high mount or medium mount?
Some NP2 guns are dovetail but most are picatinny. If yours is pic then you're good to go but I'd consider lower mounts.
Use the ones that come with it or others that are for a picatinny rail which the NP2 has-much superior to a dovetail mount. The mounts you mention are for DOVETAIL.
You should be fine either way. Medium mounts should fit nicely for most men.
What type of scope base is on your gun? What type of mount do you need? Weaver, Picatinny, 3/8″ or 11mm? Do you need 2-pc mounts or a 1-pc mount? 30mm or 1″? Scope mounts intro (Airgun Academy class)
Scope includes mount. Need a different mount?
