  • Wawan from Qatar asked:

    I purchased this scope with bkl 360 for my lgv competition ultra, are they fit to the rifle?

    • Tyler from USA:

      The scope may not fit on that mount base, I am not 100% sure though. There have been issues with the saddle height of the scope contacting the base of the mount

  • Bob from USA asked:

    How prominent/large are the dots? They are barely visible on my Leapers Leapers UTG 10x50 AO Accushot.... Not good for field target.

    • George from USA asked:

      What height scope mounts would you recommend for this scope on a synthetic Mrod? Thanks!

      • Stanley from USA:

        I would use high mounts for your Mrod it is a very big scope so it would have to clear the barrel. Try clicking the need a mount tab . it will suggest mounts for you to try.

    • ErikS from USA asked:

      Is this the correct picture? I don't see the knob for IR adjustment!

      • Paul from USA:

        For some reason the wheel is not pushed on all the way,if the wheel was on correctly you would see the IR adjustment.

      • Stanley from USA:

        This is a sidewinder so the knob is on the left side just behind the side focus knob.Its there?

    • Mike from USA asked:

      I am considering this scope for field target on my HW77. but i'm concerned that it my block the loading port. Do you have any experience or thoughts on this?

      • Jonathan from USA:

        I have a Bushnell 6-24x40, a very long scope at 17 inches that sits completely over the loading port of the HW97, but this does not interfere much with loading, there is plenty of space to go in from the side. The front objective of my scope is only 1/4 inch above the gun. High mounts complicate scope zeroing at different ranges so I try to get them as low as possible. Any rings high enough to put the scope objective 1/4 inch above the gun are fine and will only require you to tilt the gun slightly (which I do anyway to cock) to insert a pellet.

      • Cory from USA:

        This scope does have a very large objective and long bell on the front. I would possibly make it more difficult to access the breech to load the pellets. You would most likely have to go with a higher than desired mounting method for the scope.
