Things I liked: This scope comes with a glass etched mil-dot which is smaller than the wire reticle.
Things I would have changed:Quality of glass etched 30 mm scope tube not on par with the leapers 1 inch tube.
What others should know:This is my fourth Leapers scope to include 3x9x40, 4x16x50 and 3x9x32 bug buster. All three scope can withstand the punishment of thousands of rounds from RWS and HW spring piston Air Rifles. Having no problem with my other leapers scope. I ordered the 3x12x44 with glass etched mil-dot. This scope did'nt last to a 1000 round before the reticle started twisting after each shot. Stay away from this model if you are using magnum powered spring piston AR. Compared to my other leapers. My rws48 .22 with 3x9x40 has over 4500 rounds, rws52.177 with 4x16x50 over 6000, and my rws34 .22 over 2000 rounds. Im replacing this scope with the full size Leapers 3-12x44 SWAT Accushot. Hopefully this model is as durable as the other wire reticled leapers scope.
Things I liked:Excellent field adjustable, hand lockable, zero resettable turrets. With these turrets you can make a quick field adjustment of a click or two when needed and still put the scope right back to the previous zero. That feature is extremely useful for FTS and hunting. Glass reticle, sharp and durable, much better than a wire reticle, especially if you want to use reticle illumination. Side wheel objective focus, works very well for ranging with the accessory side wheel, the focus has a pretty good "snap" to it for glass in this price range. Reticle illumination color adjustment. Sounds silly but it means you can adjust for exactly the color you want to see instead of the color UTG thinks you should see.
Things I would have changed:The range calibrations on the accessory (available separately) side wheel are not accurate. If you can't make them accurate then leave them off! (I made my own calibration marks but the factory marks got in the way of making it a clean job.) The rear lens cover. The rear cover fits on the adjustable rear focus lens and that adjustment ring is very short so the rear lens cover is hard to open without pulling the lens cap off as you do so. You eventually learn to wrap your middle finger around the hood to hold the lens cover in place while you flip it open with your thumb but it is trickier than it needs to be. Put a glass reticle in the longer version of this scope. I would really like to be able to buy ALL the features of this scope in the longer version.
What others should know:Please, a mil dot is a mil dot, it's not mil dot dash dot dash. Each of the marks on the reticle is a full mil dot but every other dot is a dash leading you to believe that the dash would be a half mil radian. I had to spend a lot of time with a tripod, tape measure, and a pocket calculator to sort that out. Way too clever by at least one and and three quarters and not explained in the included documentation. Little round dots every mil radian is all we need UTG, don't try to over think this. Buying a scope is a very difficult thing because to really find out if it is any good you have to mount it on a rifle and try it out. Most vendors will not allow you to return a scope that has been mounted so if the scope is lousy you are stuck. This scope is well worth the price paid for it and vastly better than anything I have seen in this price range. The things that I didn't like are minor annoyances, not show stoppers for a scope in this price range.
Things I liked:Nothing at this point. I would write another review if I could get a scope that works.
Things I would have changed:A reticle that doesn't twist.
What others should know:I'm sure it would be a good scope for a PCP. As for my Bone Collector it's just too much gun for this scope.
