Where is this scope made?
Hi, I have a Gamo .22 Magnum Swarm. What scope do recommend? Is this scope better than the Hawke Airmax 4 to12 by 40. Or is there another one you like better than both of these.
The Hawke is a bit better than the UTG. Either will work very well.
Does this have thin reticles? As an old man my eyesight isn't as good as it use to be.
The reticle will be thin,but is illuminated. It works well in daylight.
New to pellet guns. Just bought the Gamo Raptor whisper and would like to upgrade the scope would this be a good choice.
Is this a good scope for my Gammo magnum 177 and what kind of mount would I need?
This scope is good on the Gamo Magnum. You need 30mm high dovetail rings. 1 or 2pc set.
Are the rings that come with the scope low or high?
Medium, which are actually kinda high imo. So if you set the mount on a flat surface, the center line for the scope is 35mm up. These are what I rec'd: UTG Max Strength 30mm Rings,...
what is the battery size?
2016 and 2025 will work in a pinch, they simply don't last a long. I buy the 2032 in ten or more packs on ebay bc they're substantually cheaper that way.
Will the UTG Add-On SWAT Wheels fit and work on this scope?
On this scope there are lines and dots on the Radical. Is each line and dot a mill dot?
Actually the hashes and dots are both a mil. It also comes with a little chart to make it easier. What I like about the etched is the the is the reticle lines are ~one fourth to one fifth as thick as the wire version. The wire is way too fat imo, this one is great. The dots on the wire version are also huge and since there's so many (9 per leg) it's obnoxious. The etched has 4 dots and 5 hashes per leg. The etched is also much nicer when illuminated. The price diff for the etched is more than worth it. In fact if the wire version scope was free I'd still buy the etched.
That depends on what magnification the reticle is set to be true mil dot ranging at. If it's 10x, then the dots represent one mil, and the hashes are a half mil.
What are the TOTAL MOAs on the elevation and windage movements? Are they >60 >90 ??
On mine there's 7 turns on the turret from bottom to top, and 18moa per turn (72 clicks). So from center you have 60moa in either direction, or 120 total.
Will this fit the Gamo Accu without blocking the loading port?
One more question. The barrel of the Gamo Bone Collector Bull Whisper has a plastic shroud that makes the top of the barrel high enough that it interferes with the scope that came with it. Not physically, but visually. There's a distracting "halo" distortion due to the barrel being visible through the scope. Would a high profile mount provide enough clearance to prevent that with this scope? After all, this scope has a larger lense, 44mm vs the oem 32mm.
A high profile mount would work, or at least make it better. But suggest using a riser mount (if you want to keep your original rings)
I've got a Gamo Bone Collector Bull Whisper .177. Would this scope work well with my rifle? I'm mainly concerned with the "Compact" aspect. I don't want to buy one, mount it, only to find it's too far away from my eye. Does this have any disadvantages compared to the non-compact UTG accushot with the same specs? The full size UTG scope is $199, so I'd be saving some money if this scope is just as capable as the full size UTG scope.
Imo the normal one is too long imo, the compact is a normal length. I actually bought the normal and short version and the long will likely end up on a magnum since they're ~48", or a longer firearm so it'll look right. In short, you won't have eye relief issues. The only short scope issues I've seen on an airgun is if using a really short one on a gun with a fixed rear mount. Meaning the stop pin determines the rear mount position. The Stoeger X20S has this issue. You can always make a new hole for the pin or use better mounts that don't need a pin so you can slide the scope aft.
Compact is a better way to go with your Bone Collector. It will allow re-assurance against making contact with the loading of your rifle. Leapers scopes, like this one, are designed for some abuse (ie, spring guns, gas rams). If you want the full size, that would work too, but add some extra weight. But you should love this scope on your Bone Collector.
Would you recomend this scope for hunter class FT?
I think it's a great choice, and for the $ likely the best choice.
QWould this be a good choice for my new terrus in .177? Punching paper only. 10 meter out to 25 meters
Most AO scopes here at PA will work for those ranges. The UTG have a rep for being strong, and the TS version even more so. This one is a very good price for what you get, like the side AO, etched glass, TS strength etc. If you get a scope half this price it'll far less than half as cool. The Terrus takes a dovetail mount so you'd need to get the appropriate 30mm to dove mounts. These are what I use: Leapers 30mm Rings, Medium, 3/8"...
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
Mine could certainly focus less than that. I know it will do 25' @12x, maybe less, and at 3x I was lookin at ants ~15' away. Parallax is not as easy to adj down to but it seems fine at 25'. Each scope will be a bit different so no guarantees, but 40' is no problem. Your oem NP2 scope should work at 40 too. Not sure which scope you have but you can alter most scopes to work better at closer ranges. chevota at hotmail if you want the details, but you can't go wrong with this scope or do better for the $.
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.
Looking for a scope for Diana RWS 48 with T06 Trigger; would this hold up to this springer? Would mounts work?
I'd say it has a better chance at survival than most airgun scopes. The physical size, mag levels and features are excellent for most any springer, and at an excellent price. You'll need mounts and I think the Leapers 30mm Rings, Medium, 3/8"... or Leapers Accushot 1-Pc Mount w/30mm... are perfect.
Well it would really depend on your budget and what your using it for , its really up to you. Personally i would use at least 4x12x40mAO. I like the 30mm scopes they bring in more light , but they cost more. I would use a UTG drooper mount with it. UTG and Hawk scopes are well made and will hold up to the recoil. I hope this helps.
i would like to know about any leapers MOA (elevation travel),,
On mine there's 7 turns on the turret from bottom to top, and 18moa per turn (72 clicks). David's link was broken, but I think this is the vid: https://youtu.be/VA2PZBD5Tjg
To make a long conversation short, here is a great link that explains MOA (minute of angle). http://nssf.org/video/facts/MOA.cfm This will give you the best answer possible, even with a video and graphs!
The box says compact, but the title does not. Is this indeed a compact version?
It is a compact, UTG 3-12x44 AO SWAT Accushot... is the regular model.
