Things I liked: The fact that you can NOT get a better scope for what a scope is meant for; to SEE the target downrange, acquire the 'kill' spot, and then SHOOT! And the THREE Bug Busters I have gotten from PA are WONDERFUL performers... PERIOD!
Things I would have changed: It would be great if we had a choice of reticles, glass vs wire vs... you get it. And though it may sound CRAZY for the price-point, I wouldn't mind having a side focus for the AO. I'm just sayin'!
What others should know: People, I do not own a HIGH-END optic, but seriously, I KNOW what my eyeballs see when I look through one. I have had the 'pleasure' of using optics costing up in the thousands, but other than the NAME brand, I just do not GET it. Now MAYBE if you are shooting at a thousand yards, THEN you might need a PURE GLASS, GAS FILLED, NO FOG EVER type of scope. Oh, something else. While I have no clue if there might be PLASTIC optics used in some of these great scopes from Leapers and others, do NOT let someone convince you that scopes with ANY sort of PLASTIC optics is somehow inferior... IT AIN'T. Check out some of the optics that NASA uses. glass is NOT the end-all/be-all regarding the view. Some of the BEST tele lenses I used way back as a PROFESSIONAL photographer had multi-lens plastics, and a few were hybrids. Getting back to my BB scopes, I wouldn't change 'em for NOTHING. And I will always say a little prayer for some guy who thinks the only scope is a MEGA priced one... sad.
Things I liked: Small ,light and cool looking.
Things I would have changed: Maybe an etched glass version with better optics and a lower price. (Right) the mounts are not the greatest, they seem to point the scope off to the left so you have to shim it to keep from over adjusting.
What others should know: All scopes mounted on a spring powered air gun are going to shift sooner or later. The bug buster is no exception.even on my HW 30 I have to make adjustments from time to time. All my more powerful guns (HW 95s, RWS, beemans and gamos) have UGT/leapers or hawke scopes, UGT 10x44 compact rules. But it's all about weight with my HW 30 and the bug makes it sweet.
Things I liked: The quick release mount is nice, but I have not used it as I fear removing it would cause me to have to rezero when I put it back on. Might not, but right now I am using screw mount.
Things I would have changed: Can't think of a thing I would change right now. Love the lock down turrets and the lens hood, which I have just ordered a lens cover to fit.
What others should know: Bought the Bugbuster at pyramid and put it on my Air Force .22 Condor. The squirrels now fear me. Works great and the features for the money are a great deal. My motto now is similar to the marine snipers; "One shot one squirrel."
how many mil-dots are are there?
Does the included mount accommodate break barrel rifles and the related "barrel droop" or do you need something else for springs to accommodate barrel droop? I have an Umarex Octane.
Cut some pie tin to the same width of the rear scope ring, no more than 2 thin strips. More might bend the scope. Contour it to fit the shape of the ring, seat the scope, tighten slowly !!!! Front first. but put both top scope ring mounts on. Align your reticle..Do the final tighten.
Would this optic be suitable for an AR15 rifle?
Mounts right up to a flat-top receiver and works quite well!
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?
