Things I liked:Side-wheel focus bright from 8-32 fine reticles / mil dots sturdy construction
Things I would have changed:its a bit heavy
What others should know:I bought this scope for use on my airforce condor and it has done everything i have asked of it. I dont know how leapers does it but the focus is clear at 10 meters as advertised. In comparison to a a more expensive scope, you sacrifice little. My Burris 8-36 is a bit brighter and more clear but the squirrels cant tell the difference.
Things I liked: I'm no expert, but this scope is very clear and bright at all magnification levels. I have it mounted to an Airforce Condor, and I am deadly accurate with it. I have the non-illuminated version. I can't imagine a top-dollar name brand scope being noticeably better, certainly not 2-3X as good as the price would reflect. "Don't skimp on optics" Well, I don't consider this skimping. I consider it an unbelievable bargain.
Things I would have changed: I can't really think of anything
What others should know: This scope replaced a leaper's 4-16X50, which now resides atop my "Rich From Mich" custom Gamo CFX. I can't believe the quality o0f these scopes
