Things I liked:

Dust caps flip up out of your way and locking adjustments on top and side, easy yardage change. Other scopes don't have locks on air rifles adjustments and move when your rifle is put into case or when you lay on padding.

Things I would have changed:

Mil-Dots could be just a tad smaller in the middle 4 DOTS cross or maybe remove middle 4 dots and make them straight lines? These DOTS covers little much of the target? Also remove the other 30 plus colors - Red & Green are perfect with the different brightness.

What others should know:

Take your time mounting scope - make sure you have the correct tools - small magnetic bubble levels - Wheeler Fat torque tool and the most of all; solid gun vise w/adjustable stock mounts. Been doing this for years and good tools makes a big difference.

Things I liked:

The jury is still out on this question. I got this scope for a specific new crosman rifle and that rifle had to be sent back because of a bent barrel.

Things I would have changed:

This "UTG" scope. The dot located on the scope and the dot located on the dial do not align perfectly. The "UTG" SW060B side AO wheel that I ordered for this scope. I was careful in mounting the side wheel to keep it in alignment to the greatest extent possible. I tried three times and the line on the scope dial and the line on the side wheel were "way" off. I contacted UTG direct. They said they would check batches numbers and personally fit another dial to a like kind scope and get me a new dial. They sent me a new dial. No way did they check this. This has the same issue. I took the rubber inner ring out of the new one to see how this sucker was designed and where the flaw is. The flaw is the rubber inner ring. The two extended nipples on the ring that recess in tot he body of the dial are mis-located. Not adjustable either "as is".

What others should know:

Customer service wasted my time at UTG / leapers. They wasted their time because they are still selling and making parts that don't align properly which is what these are ALL about. Accuracy. They did not resolve the issue. I had to take it apart and alter the rubber ring, make shims to add back in to the recess so it is "slightly" adjustable now. I am yet to see how that is going to hold up. Do I recommend buying a LEAPERS / UTG product to anyone? ............. NO ! These statement are not made in "opinion". These are the FACTS. I have a photo I was going to add here but don't see that is possible.

    Things I liked:

    This is a prwtty straight forward scope to use. The adjustments are locked down with an allen screw in the center of the dial. The clarity is pretty good.The overall quality is very good, especially for the price.

    Things I would have changed:

    Can't think of anything offhand.

    What others should know:

    Just make sure you lock it down well enough so it doesn't loosen up.

    Things I liked:

    The overall quality is very good. Clear glass and picture, easy to use side AO adjustment, quality end caps, very usable lighted cross hairs when needed, strong rings, and good length all go together to make a scope that should have cost more money.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing I can think of off hand.

    What others should know:

    I shooting at 25 yards mostly, 35 yards max and the scope is fine for that, even when targeting 1/2" black Shoot-n-C dots. At 50 yards a 4-16 might be necessary for these 81 year old eyes.

    Things I liked:

    I own 3 of these scopes and they're all very good. I would select UTG again.

    Things I would have changed:

    I can't think of anything to change.

    What others should know:

    UTG provides lifetime warranties and they stand behind their product.

    Things I liked:

    Very clear picture, side focus, locking zero, flip-up lense covers, illuminated reticle and built-in sun shade for under $200? Comes with a great users manual and a range cheat card too. Absolutely great value and a quality product!

    Things I liked:

    It's tough. The sight picture is clear and the mil-dot radicle is sharp. This is my first side focus scope and much more convenient than the bell focus especially with a heavy rifle. It was nice to have mounting rings included, all my other scopes are 1" tubes so having the 30 mm rings included saved me time and worry. I'm planning on changing from the included mid height to low profile rings.

    Things I would have changed:

    Having both the built in sun shade and the flip-up lens cover makes the scope raider long. I have other UTG scopes with the colored radicle and don't use it; would have preferred the scope without it.

    What others should know:

    I bought this scope on the advice of the PA rep to mount on a Diana 340 N-tec that had broken four air rifle scopes. I've now shot over 450 rounds and it seems to be holding up. The Diana 340 does require a UTG droop compensating rail. I do almost all my shooting at 25 yds. from a bench. I make my own targets, 1" circles with vertical/horizontal cross hairs, black on white.

    Things I liked:

    Features of the scope

    What others should know:

    Got a lot of good reviews for the scope, so maybe I just got a bad one. Will not stay zeroed at all. Will sight the scope using a laser boresight. After three shots of the black ops break barrel sniper rifle, the shots are wayyy off. Will then shoot low & to the right. Sighted the scope & zeroed & after three shots the shots then go low & left of target. Very inconsistent. I bought the scope first waiting on the then backordered rifle. It was three months before I could mount the scope & discovered the flaw. The original scope that came with the rifle will have to do until I can purchase another brand.

    Things I liked:

    Optics very clear, was leery of this purchase. It didn't cost enough I thought. Performance wise I'm very happy. Mounted on a PCP so does not have to deal with the action of a springer

    Things I would have changed:

    Not sure, was good as is. I bought the large diameter side focus wheel as well. Possibly offer them as a kit. An elliptical French curve focus would be nice. A marker that goes between the weaver ring caps?

    What others should know:

    You still must spend some quality time behind your rifle to learn what projectiles do at known distance

    Things I liked:

    Added to a Kral Puncher Breaker .25 cal and is a tack driver. Clarity is great, and like that it has mildots throughout the reticle which allows you to be able to get long distance shots accurately without having to guess

    Things I would have changed:

    Add the AO wheel and offer a combo package with it, otherwise id change nothing.

    I swapped out the stock scope for this UTG 3-12x44 AO SWAT Scope. I am very pleased with the results and consistency. It has held zero for a couple hundred rounds now. The stock scope lost zero after about 80 shots.

    Things I liked:

    Survivability. The glass is pretty clear too.

    Things I would have changed:

    Let's leave the quick and easy detach mounts for people who specifically want that. more often than not the rings provided are not what you need, pay careful attention to magazine clearance.

    What others should know:

    I bought this second hand. It lived on a Hatsan 125 Springer. God knows how old it is and it's still dead on. The gun the man sold to me was slap wore out, I bought it pretty much for the scope. It's now residing on my brand new Hatsan wood Flash.

    Things I liked:

    I'm a 51 year old male with a lot of experience with hunting all sorts of things with a lot of high powered rifles with various scopes. I mounted this scope to a Hatsan model 95. It is light years better than the scope it came with. Things I like so far: Good clarity, excellent price, good eye relief, feels heavy duty out of the box, looks good. I'll update later as I put more rounds through it to see how it stands up to the forward and reverse kick of a springer.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish they'd offer this scope 1. With thinner cross hairs 2. Have the same scope but offer it in a lower power like a 1 to 4. For the price I'll take this scope as is and pocket the money saved.

    What others should know:

    I love to shoot. I shoot 17hmr, 22s, 22-250, 25-06, 270win, 30-06 and 375H&H. I have scopes from Leopold and Nikon on my rifles. I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do with a springer with this scope.

    This is my third 3-12x44 Swat scope and their a great scope. I have them on my air rifles and one on my 22-250 Thompson Pro Hunter and their clear and precise windage and elevation adj. are on the money.

    Things I liked:

    its a very nice scope for the price. Its very clear. It makes the Mantis scope that came on my 22 caliber R9 look cheap. I put this scope on HW97 177 caliber and hit targets at 50 and 70 yards. I think the color reticle may come in handy late evening or early morning (hunter). End caps are very nice also. The side wheel parallax adjustment is great when focusing on targets 50 yards out while keeping a eye on target. Ive got to get the side wheel so i can see if it will help with adjusting in the field. Im going to get this scope for my R9. Its got me hooked

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing

    What others should know:

    It only goes down to 10 yards parallax. Just in case your back yard range is 25 feet only or you just like to shoot close up. Myself I am usually trying for long shots! I put 30mm medium rings on it and it looks great on HW97 and there is clearance for the caps.
