Outstanding product, that gets the job done. Clear optics at all magnifications and ranges. Solid construction that takes a beating and holds zero. Nothing comparable on the market in this price range.Things I would have changed:
Sell it without mounts for a few dollars less or with optional 11mm mounts.What others should know:
I use a RWS 350 in .177 cal. because of its flat trajectory and great accuracy for long range vermin extermination. The light weight of the projectiles (10.5gr) causes this rifle to create a tremendous amount of harsh recoil, even more so than the .22 cal. version which is also a scope destroyers. I was reluctant to use an expensive scopes on this rifle for that reason. I first opted for comparable different brand magnum rated air-gun scope that I purchased at a competitive price. But after just a few shots several pieces had fallen off of it and it was time to purchase a UTG. The other brand scope was salvaged with super glue, locktite and some duct tape. It is now mounted on a RWS 34P where it has served well without further issues. But for the RWS 350 nothing less than the UTG will do.
windage and elevation knob adjustment/design, fast focus eyebell, wide magnification range, quality of provided rings and the fact they fit weaver/picatinny bases/rails, provided sun shade and flip-up lens caps, larger mil-dots than in competitor's scopes IMO makes for better acquisition, overall build quality and design. the reasonable price. PA's price and 30 day warranty couldn't be beat at the time I purchased this scope.Things I would have changed:
Leapers/UTG improve the build quality/design of the illumination feature... this is my only real complaint with this scope. Also offer it w/o the illumination feature at a lower cost.What others should know:
I also purchased and reviewed this same model scope 2015-02-28 on PA. This is a second purchase. This one had a manufacturer's defect arise in regard to the illumination feature. PA stood behind the product 100%. Be sure to thoroughly inspect/test your merchandise within the 30 day window. I fully stand behind my comments in my initial review. However, when one truly considers the overall build quality, design and features that this scope provides, along with the quality rings and nice flip-up lens caps. This scope is worthy of considering even w/o the illumination feature. The disappointment is the quality of the illumination feature. My initial rating of a 3 was harsher than I feel is truly fair and have upgraded it to a 4 for this review. The fact that I even purchased a second one should be a testament that despite my feelings regarding the illumination feature, I still like this scope very much. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase a third or fourth one either.
Very clear optics at all magnification, Maintains zero adjustment, Smooth AO and magnification adjustment.Things I would have changed:
Would benefit from more AO marks to aid in range finding.
crisp picture, ability to zero at 24 power and dial back to 12/16 for comps (depending on us/Canada)
Awesome scope everything says quality shoots excellent with my new F17L 17RSM.Things I would have changed:
General overall clarity of the optics throughout the entire variable power range. Larger mil dots in comparison to many other scope brands provide for easier eye acquisition Solid build and feel of the scope. Flip up scope caps. Quick detach weaver/picatinny rings. Lockable and resettable turrets.Things I would have changed:
Make this scope w/ side PA. PA on scope bells and flip up covers don't function well together. Dump the illumination feature and cut the cost. The illumination feature flat out SUCKS! Worst quality of any scope I've ever looked through, NO LIE!What others should know:
DO NOT BUY FOR THE ILLUMINATION FEATURE! You will be sorely disappointed. Horrible scope wash. Poor quality light distribution throughout the crosshairs. Brightness settings are poor quality and inadequate for most situations. The illumination feature is pretty much useless on this scope IMO. With that said, It is a fair quality 6-24 power scope rated for airguns at a price that doesn't break the bank. Just plan to use the Black unilluminated reticle if you buy it. If your looking for a scope with quality and usable illumination, I highly recommend looking at the Mueller line of scopes. But be prepared to put down some more cash. I would also contact them to make sure they will handle the recoil of springers. They do have etched reticles though instead of wires.
I like the wide range of variable power from 6-24X and large 50mm AO objective. The clarity is very good through the range of magnification. The multicolor adjustable illuminated retical is nice. The accessories including a sun shade, extra battery, hex keys, charts, and high mounts are very useful.Things I would have changed:
I would rather have 11mm dovetail airgun mounts (with stop pins) rather than the weaver/picatinny style mounts furnished because almost all of my air rifles have 11mm dovetails mounting rails. I would prefer a side adjustable objective than front adjustable.What others should know:
Be sure to consider the length of scope, including the sun shade, on the specific rifle that you intend to mount it on. The scope length may cause pellet loading obstructions.
Clarity and focus are sharp at all ranges . The reticle at first seemed a little thick . But the reticle has grown to my Liking . You can get on target fast with this reticle a true hunter Scope .Things I would have changed:
NothingWhat others should know:
All the colors the reticle will light up with is great . Lower powered brightness would work best when using lighted reticle. Great Scope for the Money
