Things I liked: The crispness of the optics is the first surprise I encountered. The reticle is wonderful with the mil-dot configuration. It has been years since I last shot any sort of rifle and this scope made it a wonderful experience. At one point I noticed I was having trouble seeing the reticle against my target and then I remembered the illuminated reticle.. it is great!... especially with the adjustable brightness feature! The only reason I haven't given it five stars is that I haven't had a chance to really get out and shoot with this scope but so far it's proven to be a great product for the money.
Things I would have changed: I can't think of anything I would change about the scope
What others should know: When ordering it would be nice if the adapter, that is needed if your rifle isn't equipped with picatinny rails, would be mentioned on the information in general. If one is familiar with modern rifles one would probably know this already but this left me waiting a while longer to test the scope
Things I liked: Absolutely beautiful scope. Construction seems to be all that they claim. I've only used it for a couple of weeks now. Only time will tell how durable it is, but it's rock solid on my Benjamin Summit NP2. Clarity is about as good as you're going to get and that is very good. Almost feel like i stole it for the price I paid at PA. Seems like it would cost hundreds more. Bought the 60mm side wheel for the AO. What a pleasure that is to use. Really speeds up sight acquisition.
Things I would have changed: Nothing really. If i had to be picky it would be that the scope might be a little heavy. On a bench...OK. carrying around in the field all day might be another story. Makes my Summit NP2 a heavy combo. But if that's the trade off for a durable scope, then I'll gladly take that any day. I'll be ordering the same scope in a compact for another rifle in the near future.
Things I liked: Side focus
Things I would have changed: Thinner reticule
What others should know: Good scope for the money
Where is this scope manufactured?
Yes, China. They don't advertise that but it's printed on the under side of the scope.
Would this be a good choice for my new terrus in .177? Punching paper only. 10 meter out to 25 meters.
I think it would be a good fit, or maybe the compact version which might look better on the gun. I prefer the compact... Reticle is not ideal as mentioned but thin reticles are usually more $ so you have to draw the line somewhere. I consider the reticle acceptable, especially when at max max mag, which thanks to the side parallax adj is way easier to use than AO.
Tim if you are competition shooting then you may want to go with a model with finer reticle. This unit has rather thick lines and MIL dot more designed for hunting. At 10 and 25 meter shooting try to select a more precise style/thinner reticle.
WILL THIS SCOPE FIT MY FX WILDCAT
The scope itself will, but you'll need to buy dovetail mounts for it unless by chance you have the Picatinny rail. I would get these Leapers Accushot 1" Rings, Medium,... or the taller Leapers Accushot 1" Rings, High,... if you want. They look great, super strong, and can't beat the price.
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?
