Things I liked: So good and thoroughly excellent value for its budget price. Short. Sharp. Bright. Solid. Parallax ring allows focus of target and reticle for person with slight short sight and no accommodation (ie an older shooter) Adjustments and zeroing turrets are crisp so far. Leapers mounts are also very good for the price. I needed a springer airgun rated scope. Had good experience with a second hand Leapers 4-16x previously but this one is sharper and tighter all over. Good mag range - same as another scope I've got. Mounted on Norinco JW15 .22LR. (copy of Brno) Used UTG medium mounts and the height is good, clears bolt handle nicely.
Things I would have changed: Reticle has far too wide a dotty part. Too many mildots (10 each side) and alternating dots and hashes; more isn't better as I can't count them or use them. In effect, this is a plain fine crosshair reticle Reticles are personal but for me I would like only 5 mildots each side and very thick outer posts (like S&B P3 reticle). Even better would be quite a narrow opening of fine crosshhairs say only 1 mRad each side above and below with no dots. (ie a duplex). This would be easier to use for dark targets. Needs to have an option to buy with airgun rail mounts, not just picatinny. A revolution indicator or zero stop could be useful (but more expensive) or better still have 1/2 MOA adjustments and twice the MOA per turn. I don't know if Leapers could make a first focal plane scope ? I guess we'd have to pay more for it but it could be worth it. They are much easier to use for field target. A mRad adjustment (1cm/100m) would extend its appeal beyond the USA.
What others should know: The Leapers mounts on my airgun did allow the scope to move forward , which I fixed by removing the fibrous padding inside hem with acetone. This was a full size 4-16x56 on a TX200 HC in .22. No trouble at all since. My older 4-16x Leapers suffers from flare when looking towards a bright area like the evening horizon. Perhaps due to the angled integral metal sunshade, this 3-12x44 seems quite a bit better - good on you UTG. If mounting over an open action like a .22LR you will have no leeway to adjust eye relief (due to the very compact length). I could, fortunately, adjust my stock length.
Things I liked: Big, bright optics - nice bright scope. Good looking, looks nice on the gun. Side wheel focus works good, I really like that feature. Lighted reticle goes from bright to dimmer with many colors(I only use green and red) - I can quickly choose what is best for me. Plenty of scope adjustment, and it easy to zero in. Good magnification for long distance shooting. No problems with scope so far.
Things I would have changed: Nothing noted yet.
What others should know: Mounted this scope on a tuned Weihrauch HW-77 rifle in .177 caliber. Scope was easy to sight in and seemed to adjust properly. This scope has plenty of adjustment which I needed. Nice magnification, which is something I'm not used to, but I am quickly learning the advantages of seeing the target "real big". The lighted reticle in different colors help me to see them against the target much better than black under many conditions. I shoot at night on a lighted range and the red and green crosshairs are a big plus. Also, the crosshairs are thin for more precise crosshair placement. I've shot my best groups with this scope, both at 25 and 50 yards. I have bad eyesight and wear glasses for reading. I prefer to shoot without my glasses and I can adjust the reticle and the objective until it's crystal clear for me. Being able to shoot without wearing my glasses is a lot of fun. The side focus is great(with 60mm wheel), and easy to use. Turret adjustments are equally as easy.
Things I liked: how much better of a scope you can really get for 50 to 70 dollars more....i mean i am floored !!!, and not just in the quality of the scope, which i can't even believe it's so hot...but that i didn't even know they made sidewheel scopes for lefties, or people that shoot left by eye dominance, but i ordered the big side wheel to go with it, and figured i would reach over the scope... i mean Pyramyd Air Totally Rocks !!!. serious...i asked a question about handedness on one of the other scopes here, ( can't even remember which one ), anyway so i test fitted the wheel on the windage and it fit so i set down the scope and put the rings on my rail....I WISH YOU GUYS COULD HAVE SEEN THE GLEE ON MY FACE WHEN I REALIZED I HAD THE WHEEL ON THE WINDAGE !!!! ....ZOH-MAUG-OSH !!! Pyramyd Air customer for life here.....but if you shoot left, don't think your going to be lucky enough that they will catch that every time, so specify.
Things I would have changed: my old scope if i where you...
What others should know: the SWAT wheels fit this
QWould this be a good choice for my new terrus in .177? Punching paper only. 10 meter out to 25 meters
Looking for a good scope for my Benjamin trail NP2. I shoot outside however for bad weather I built a range in my basement and I need a dependable scope at short range 40 ft. that will focus. I have tried 3 different ones but to no avail
Just checked mine, and it focuses at 30ft on 12 power. I usually shoot at 25 and 50 yards and have had no problems with the focus on this scope.
I shoot indoors mostly at 10-12 yards (My barn is 40 feet long). Every UTG scope I have listed as 10yds to Infinity works great at that distance. Even my 24 power scope. I have a Hawke rated 15yds plus that doesn't focus, and a few lower end Centerpoints that should be good down to 10yrds but aren't. I think you'll love this scope - I have the wire reticle version and it's crystal clear at 10yrds.
Leapers / UTG scopes are pretty good quality , i have one on my Gamo hunter extreme .177 caliber and is holding up well , still holds zero. This one should work for you. The old saying you get what you pay for is true for scopes to? They say if gun cost 300.00 dollars then buy a scope close to that price and you'll be happy. Good luck.
How long is this scope? My crosman 1377 has a steel breech that has 6 inches of space to mount a scope...will it fit?
This scope is 11.1 inches long. So it will fit.
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?
