By James from USA on 2020-03-22 23:18:23

Things I liked:

Super clear glass.

Things I would have changed:

Make the rings that come in the package high-profile. The ones provided will not clear my Hatsan Flash magazine.

What others should know:

Having great luck with the utg line that takes a screw in sun shade. I have had two accushot fail on me and decided to give the brand another try. I stay away from the accushot line and so far I'm having great luck with the four units I'm currently using.

    Things I liked:

    Nicely finished. Positive click for the adjustments.

    Things I would have changed:

    Don't include slip on scope caps where the objective adjustment is on the lens. Removeable caps with elastic cords would be more appropriate. Annoying to change the setting when a pop open cap is in the way. Nice caps though!

    What others should know:

    Very nice clear scope.

    Things I liked:

    I love the illumination. Dusk is a great time to shoot and this scope is perfect for that. It looks impressing on my HW98. This is replacing my 3X9 UTG. It's overkill I know for shooting 50 yards but oh well.

    Things I would have changed:

    The lens covers are useless. I had ditched them on my 3X9 as well. Besides, I like my scope as close to the barrel as possible and these guys are just to bulky.

    What others should know:

    I've had my 3X9 for two years and have used the illumination for hours and hours shooting at night with a light on my target. So much fun.

    Things I liked:

    Nice reticle. The illiumination is pretty wild too with the different colors. It appears to hold zero so far. Have not had a chance to shoot a silhouette match yet so we'll see how well the scope tracks. At this scopes price point, i think it will be hard to beat.

    Things I would have changed:

    The lens covers are useless if you change the distances you are shooting. When you change the parallax setting or the magnification, the lens covers end up where they are not supposed to be anyway. Guess they are good lens protectors?

    Things I liked:

    Clarity, brightness, easily adjusted, stands up to the beating from my Diana 48 springer.

    Things I would have changed:

    I'd lose the flip open lens caps. The front one interferes when turning the front adjustable objective (AO) when sighting in at different ranges. I pulled it off almost immediately and have substituted a 49 mm center pinch camera lens cover that I stuff in my pocket when shooting. The rear lens cap would be okay, except the brutal double recoil of the Diana seems to move it off the scope. It usually works its way back until it falls off the scope when I'm firing. I haven't replaced it yet, but I will.

    What others should know:

    It's a long scope and the front objective hangs over the loading port. Nonetheless, I don't have any difficult loading the rifle with my right hand, but loading it with the left hand is impractically difficult. I'm a left handed shooter, but since the cocking lever is on the right side, my right hand is already in play for loading anyway.

    Things I liked:

    This is my favorite low cost scope...and, like many others here, I've tried dozens of them! This scope has held up to years of use on my Diana 34 as well as performing a completely different duty on my M1 Garand. The UTG Hunter is one of the few scopes that can be used on a Garand these days, because the scope is offset on its rings/mount to the side of the upper ejection/loading port and it must be mounted 90 degrees off (with elevation knob serving windage duty and vice-versa). The other scope I have that works well on my two scoped Garand rifles is a Luepold Mk4 MR/T 2.5-8. Sure, its 1/2 mil illuminated milling reticle and image quality are far superior to the Hunter, but it costs over 10x as much too! Both scopes get the job done.

    Things I would have changed:

    Though it's really a pipe dream in any parallax adjustment system under $1000, the Hunter AO system could be better at not affecting POI. The reticle shifts a liitle as the AO adjuster is rotated through its range. However, my Hunter is still one of the best I've tested in anything near this price range and I only must re-zero my scope if I adjust the AO beyond my usual 10 to 50 yard air gunning range. The Hunter is also a bit heavy, but perhaps the benefit of its heavy construction is its reliability on scope-abusing springers! At least it's not a 30mm scope exhibiting an even greater weight penalty.

    What others should know:

    The illumination works great for my 22 cal Diana 34 night pester. Though red and green colors would probably suffice, my red/green color vision deficiency might be the reason that I prefer one of the violet colors the scope offers. Once set to the color I prefer, I'm always careful to only long press a button to power it down so it will always remember my setting on its next power-up. I use a head lamp and the illuminated reticle to shoot pests out of the trees next to our house, which they keep trying to remodel to their preferences and needs. For best clarity, I never use more than 10x power (the mil dot reticle is calibrated at 10x too) so there's no need to buy the larger and more expensive 50mm objective Hunter. (With a 40mm objective, the resulting 4mm optical exit pupil at 10 power is already plenty large for most post-30 year old human eyes.) A 2nd focal plane mil dot reticle like this one allows you to do neat ballistics tricks at lower power too.

    Things I liked:

    It is perfect for the Ruger 1022.

    Things I would have changed:

    For the Ruger 1022, the rings should be the Low Profile in my opinion, instead of the High Profile that came together.

    What others should know:

    The screws of the UTG Pro Ruger 1022 Picatinny rail are perfect, since I read complains about screws too long or bad quality.

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Good, sharp mil-dot reticle. Fairly bright scope, adjustable objective, locking turrets for elevation and windage and I think the turrets can be adjusted to align markings once the scope is zeroed in to the rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would have liked the adjustment for the objective lens to be on the side of the scope next to the windage and elevation turrets but this scope does give you a lot for the money.

    What others should know:

    The reticle does illuminate in any color you want. Buyers should not panic if their reticle doesn't light up after inserting the battery. The first battery I installed was dead but the package does include 2 batteries. The second one worked fine.

    Things I liked:

    Purchased this scope for my AA TX200 HC. To be honest, I was a little concerned that I was underspending, given it is a ~$700 rifle. 'Turns out I was mostly right. My biggest complaint is that the eye relief on the scope is way too tight. If your eye is not in exactly the right spot, there's occlusion, unfortunately. I'd also say that it's really not a 16x magnification, given the level of blurring at anything above 6x. All the above said, I wouldn't say it's a bad scope, and it will endure the punishment of a springer, so that's all to it's credit. In the end, I returned it for a better one. Your mileage may vary. :-)

    Things I would have changed:

    While I initially considered the illuminated reticle a bit of "gilding the lily," in true fact, I have found uses for it since, e.g., when having to account for pellet drop at longer distances, and needing to spot the mildots lower in the reticle against a black target. Now I know. :-)

    Things I liked:

    Inexpensive with decent features. I hunt at night a good bit and the IR is essential. Works well. I love that it will shut itself off if I forget! Retical is a bit thick but certainly useable.

    Things I would have changed:

    Its a $100 scope. No complaints.

    What others should know:

    I've had this scope on a hatsan 95 in .22 and a tiger impact .22. Did well. Its new home will be a marauder .25 once it arrives from pyramid.

    Great for the money.

    I like the scope but the thin yardage sleeve came off of the front.when your focusing the scope and your turning the front lens the sleeve slides off an I can't get it to reattach. Anybody out there that can help. It's threaded but won't screw back on. Please email me if you have an answer. Love the scope but that's aggravating 1mercury752@gmail.com

    Things I liked:

    I replaced a fixed 4X scope that came as a combo on a new airgun I purchased, with this scope after watching a number of reviews on the airgun. I was amazed how quickly I was able to get it sighted in, only 6 shots and it was dead on at 45 feet. Very easy to adjust, very substantially made and the red or green illuminated reticle is great, day or night. Also the reticle is completely visible when not illuminated. Very sharp and clear even at high power magnification.

    Things I would have changed:

    Would liked to have scope come with mounts that fit either 11mm dovetail or Weaver rail.

    What others should know:

    If you want an airgun scope with variable power and illuminated reicle, you can't go wrong with this one.
