By Frank from USA on 2019-01-11 00:04:43

Things I liked:

Clarity, field of view, parallax from 5 yards to infinity, lock rings on turrets, open turrets, ability to reset turrets to zero for future distances adjustments but still know where your original zero is, light intake for late evening near darkness, mil dots for distance correction concerning windage and elevation, ability to light the reticle and several levels of intensity. I use my scope on a Weihrauch HW97K and with this combo and at 15 yards it literally drives tacks, purely lead on lead. Love this scope with lifetime warranty. I use a Mizugiwa one piece mount. It uses 4 lockdown screws on rifle dovetail, 4 screws on each ring, plus a back-stop screw. The 5 yard focus is great for bird feeder pest control.

Things I would have changed:

The lens caps really fits tight and they are hard to get off. When adjusting for parallax focus you must remove the front cap, not simply flip it up. I do like the idea of flip up lens covers though.

What others should know:

No mention on box about Owners Manuel. After finding it available on-line I printed it. Later I revisited the original box and found the manuel tucked and hidden inside a sleeve. Oops. Book is a must for technical instructions. Read it!

Things I liked:

Feels and looks nice

Things I would have changed:

Scope does not illuminate.

What others should know:

I bought this scope expecting great things based on other reviews. It arrived, and the scope does not illuminate. Have tried multiple different batteries and still nothing. Emailed customer service and they will not reply. If this thing worked properly it seems like it would be a very nice scope. If I get a replacement I will gladly re-review.

    Things I liked:

    It works. Nothing too great, but it's a cheap scope and does do it's basic job of magnifying the object. First one I got was blurry to the point of being unusable, but Pyramyd Air, being the great company that they are, exchanged if for another one which is better. Not great, but likely the best it's going to get.

    Things I would have changed:

    For the price point, probably nothing much to change.

    What others should know:

    This is definitely a "get what you pay for" item. It's a cheap scope, and it shows..

    Things I liked:

    Everything! locking turrets. Great glass, light weight. Its a UTG so it will focus down to a ridiculous 3 yards out too infinity. I've always wanted a leapers and this went right on the Avenger Bullpup. Its a perfect fit. I'm so happy I signed up for emails from pyramid air. Every now and then they send you a gem of a coupon code. The scopes red and green easy tap is Also a nice feature.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing it even came with really Cool high scope rings and flip up lens. So the whole lot!

    What others should know:

    Look for deals and use the coupon codes build bonus bucks. I paid like $64 or $69 on sale. So if you watch out for sales and sign up for the PA emails, you could also get lucky. I know its an odd review but with inflation and gas I just wish everyone should be this lucky.

    Things I liked:

    objective lens numbers are dead on. the ir is perfect with 5 brightness settings for red and green. got it mounted on a stormrider gen 2 rws and have popped 3 squirrels with it and 1 rabbit at night using the green. i'll mount one my hatsan 95 and see how it holds up to the recoil.

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing

    What others should know:

    my hatsan 95 tore up a hawke 3-9x50 ao ir (no airmax) after 600+ rds so i'll keep my fingers crossed on the utg

    Rating 2.02.0 2.0

    Things I liked:

    the optics are clear and adjustment of reticle works well

    Things I would have changed:

    not sure that I need the illuminated reticle and the flip-up lens covers are fragile and break easily. With repeated shots the optical lens moves out of focus.

    What others should know:

    I bought one last year to upgrade the combo scope on a Hatsan 95. Within a short time it would no longer group consistently. I shot hundreds of rounds trying many brands of ammo and finally gave up and called Leapers. They sent another one which held a good group until today when the gun slipped and fell from vertical to the floor. Now there is no predictability in adjustment or poi. My experience is that this scope isn't nearly as robust as claimed, and as for shockproof, well, I'm not sure how that is defined by Leapers. I don't know whether I should get these fixed or move on.

    Things I liked:

    The shipping box was oversize totally protecting the scope box and scope inside with inner packaging. The scope and scope box was in perfect condition. Good easy to read and follow instructions.

    Things I would have changed:

    Checking to be sure that the contact for the battery to touch is at the proper height to insure crosshair illumination will work.

    I like this scope so far.

    Things I liked:

    Just a nice all around package for 100.00. Adjustment is a bit unorthodox but once you do it a few times its easy enough. Mil dot Reticles are nice, lighting is cool and so far so good. I bought it to put on a Benjamin Trail NP XL that I bought to pound around the woods with. Hate to carry my good Springers on ugly days. This scope stayed put so far on the Benji...which is noted for its ability to rattle a scope. I think its a great value for a hunting scope or even the casual bench shooter.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not sure why wind/elev. adjustment are not just touch and turn. I have to loosen collar ring then turn appropriate clicks and then lock collar again. Not a huge hardship by any means but I am not sure what the advantage is at the end of the day.

    This is an awesome scope. Easy to adjust and really pulls in the view.

    Things I would have changed:

    I know its just me but sighting a target at 9x can be tough - not used to a variable scope yet!

    What others should know:

    You will probably need the high ring mounts. Double check.

    Things I liked:

    retical coloration. retical mil-dot character. zoom and focus are very nice. had some trouble zeroing in..but once i understood the concept, i zeroed in at 1/4" at 15 yards. (can clearly do headshots at 25-30 yards easy.

    Things I would have changed:

    money and purpose are served. no changes needed.

    What others should know:

    just 1. when selling this item, customer must know the rail ring size, so that they may check their sizes before ordering.
