Things I liked:

Everything. It is all it says it is. This is one of the best rifle scopes due to its features and size. I have it mounted on my .22LR Henry Lever Action rifle. The scope really brings far and near targets in with ultimate clarity. The side range parallax knob really gives the best clarity one can get. You can shoot the wings off a fly at 100yrds LOL.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing

What others should know:

This scope is able to give the tightest zero possible, because it zooms in as the range is increased. This narrows the field of view so you can focus on the bulls eye, or the most humane kill shot on critters.

Things I liked:

Does work good as long as it's not mounted to the Gamo swarm air rifle but hope a with gamo extra high rings I had to order will raise the scope so the 10 shot mag not in the way when I use the scope. The rings that come with the scope to short.

Things I would have changed:

The rings to mount it to the air rifle to short for a Gamo swarm repeating air rifle were the mag blocks your view and makes the scope useless. If you buy this for a Gamo Swarm air rifle buy a extra high mounting rings

What others should know:

Buy extra high mounting rings if it's for a Gamo 10 shot repeating air rifle the ring are to short that come with the scope so the 10 shot mag block your view out of the scope.

    Mounting rings not the best. 32mm provides smallish sight picture.

    What others should know:

    Better than 3x9x32 model, except for the rings.

    Things I liked:

    On the right rifle, in this case a Weihrauch HW30, it's the perfect size. My eyes don't do as well with open and peep sights anymore, so the 3-12X32 meets my needs. It doesn't make the gun more accurate...I still have to do my part with breath control, trigger control, "artillery hold", and such, but I can be as accurate as I used to be again.

    Things I would have changed:

    I can't think of anything other than all the UTG scopes come with Picatinny mounts and nothing that I own uses that mounting system. I've got a whole pile of brand new Picatinny mounts piled up. Supplying them with 11 mm / 3/8" medium height scope mounts (i.e. BKL's) would be a lot more useful.

    What others should know:

    If it doesn't shoot well, make sure it's mounted correctly and you've not got the elevation adjustment cranked all the way down. With the scope optically centered I work on my mounting until it's almost on target and then just fine tune with the turret adjustments.

    Things I liked:

    Have several of these. Good so far. The 3x12 has finer crosshairs than the 3x9, which I like a lot better. No lighting on the crosshairs, which is sort of nice, sometimes. Good small size. Light weight.

    Things I would have changed:

    I think these bugbusters still have wire crosshairs, so I would like to see etched glass which I assume is more rugged, and would be able to have more types of patterns. I kind of like the lighting too, getting kind of junky here.

    What others should know:

    Do to small size, mounting could be a problem. Check to see if it'll fit your situation. I have a 3x9 bugbuster on a Diana 56TH, supposedly the hardest airgun on scopes, and it's held up for several 1000 shots so far. Generally I like these scopes a lot, especially the ability to focus at 3 yards for indoor shooting, and the low price of course.

    What others should know:

    I put this on a Gamo Maxxim Swarm air rifle. I had to mount it as far back as it could go on the rails but while it is entirely usable, I would have liked to be able to move it about an inch further back. It is a very nice scope with a clear, bright image even in low light- surprisingly so given it only has a 32mm objective. It is at least as bright as the piece of junk 40mm scope that came with the Maxxim. This is entirely due to optical efficiency (better glass and coatings so less light loss). The rather large rat that had been decimating my garden discovered the accuracy and repeatability of this scope the hard way. Once it is sighted in this combination can stack .177 pellets at 45 feet. It was a bit more scope than might be justified for a Gamo Maxxim but the combination is deadly accurate and a joy to shoot.

    Things I liked:

    I bought this scope the same time I bought my Hatsan 87 QE Vortex .22 cal rifle. I also went with the 20 for 20 mounting-zeroing service. I wanted a scope that had a parallax down to 3 yards, since a lot of my shooting will be at very close range. PA sighted it in at 10 yards and it was a tack driver right out of the box. I resighted it out to 30 yards, only took about 6 rounds. This an awesome scope, light weight and short, looks great. I love that the parallax adjustment is on the side of the scope and not up front making it very easy to adjust it in a hurry. i find the eye relief to be just right where PA mounted it. I put 200 rounds through the rifle in the first 2 days I've owned it and it still is dead balls accurate. If your in the market for a Bug Buster this is the one to get, there are a few others that are less exspensive, but most have red/green reticles, which I don't need. I'll probably be buying another very soon.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing, in my opinion it is perfect for my needs.

    What others should know:

    Is scope is built like a tank and I really believe it would stand up to almost any air rifle out there. UTG's warranty along side of PA's warranty makes this a no brainer. It's tough, short and light weight and just a great all around scope.

    Things I liked:

    Size, power range, free rings,& reticle.

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe a 36 or 40mm objective.

    What others should know:

    Wanted this scope for a new Stoeger f40 underlever Springer. Unfortunately the scope stop wouldn't fit under the scope. Laser bore sighted the scope then tried to sight in. It didn't happen as the scope refused to hold zero. The f40 evidently recoils too much. Pulled scope & my Son sighted it in w/ the open sights.( I have a cataract forming in my right eye ). I've since mounted the scope on a PCP gun & it's doing great ! Because of the loading port on the f40 I wanted a short scope , too bad it didn't work out.

    Things I liked:

    The scope knobs and adjustments have a good feel to them and the scope is attractive for such a short length. I purchased it because of the 3 - 12 power range and it would add a minimum amount of weight to my TX200 which is a heavy rifle. I think the clarity of view through this scope is as good as any I have seen in this price range. The scope comes with medium height rings so that's a plus. The turrets also have the ability to be set to zero after adjustment and a lock ring is provided. Overall I feel it's a great scope for the money.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would prefer quick removal lense covers to the pop up type but that's just me. Because of the short overall length of the scope you may need offset mounts to establish a comfortable head position on your stock while shooting, this was not a problem on my rifle but something to consider.

    What others should know:

    This is the scope if you want light weight and decent optics at a reasonable price
