Things I liked: It is an excellent scope. It has a 20x 1/2 mil-dot reticle which is very confortable to aim.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: You will never find a scope with so great features like this one for less than 200 US$. It is really a gift.
Things I liked: workmanship of the product, I love the lighted reticle, the focus, range finding feature, and clear objective. Oh one more thing, The price is about half of another scope that I am currently using.
Things I would have changed: nothing
What others should know: The scope comes with perfect mounts that matches the finish on the scope.
Things I liked: Excellent scope, I've had it mounted on several springers and it has done an outstanding job on all of them. Mine is currently mounted on a Walther LGU. I tried other scopes on the LGU but had problems with the scope bells being in the way when loading pellets. The cut away on the sun shade of the UTG 4-16x56 allows for non-restricted access to the loading port.
Things I would have changed: Nothing!
What others should know: This is a heavy scope, especially when combined with a Leapers Accushot 1 Piece 30mm High Mount and a 80mm Swat Wheel, but the LGU is a heavy rifle. This setup is perfect for target shooting. For hunting you may want something lighter. Also be aware that 56mm scopes need high mounts, therefore if you have a low non-adjustable cheek rest, inconsistent cheek weld could lead to accuracy issues.
Are the included mounts high?
Would this optic be suitable for use on an AR15 .223 / 5.56 rifle?
Yes it would work.
About the reticle--does it have dash marks between the round mildots like the Compact SWAT scope?
Yes uses the same reticle.
