This UTG scope has an etched-glass reticle, which is superior to a wire reticle because it's etched by a laser and is much more precise. That lets you get even more accuracy from your gun. Another way that etched-glass reticles are superior to wire reticles is when they're illuminated. The etched ones show the illumination only on the reticle. It looks like the reticle is floating. Wire reticles often have a reflection of the illumination in the objective lens, which can be distracting when shooting.

Things I liked: Quality, the etched glass reticle, size, clarity, durability. Love the fact that I can use it as a hammer. Just kidding :-)

Things I would have changed: Make it a little lighter, maybe?

What others should know: The etched glass reticle looks so thin and nice, scope is dead on, well could I use more magnification than x12? yeah but at a much higher weight and size so 12 is great. not sure why Pyramyd does not have an accurate reticle picture but this reticle is thin and has half stops unlike the reticles made of wire, they are much thicker. This scope is a winner and with lifetime warranty it'll be a lifetime of fun. I have the equivalent scope with the wire reticle and that one is 5 times thicker. Hope this helps,

Things I liked: The next best scope I have to compare it to is the UTG 3-9x40ao True Hunter $108. Wow is this a step up. I will never buy another scope without etched reticle and side focus. The illumination on the cheaper one is uneven, has glare off the inside of the tube, just super cheesy after seeing this scope. When you hit the illumination, ONLY the etched part of the reticle lights up perfectly evenly, no distractions. My main concern is being able to get in focus at very close distances. The 3-9x40 excels at that. This is tolerable and you can definitely get a "good enough" focus at well under 10 yards. There is a compact version, I'd love to try it to see what differences there are. There is nothing else like this at anything close to this price? Loved it so much on my Flash, I bought a second one when I got a wood Flash! Since with the Flash you need "high" rings to get over the absurdly tall magazine, I'd kill to buy this in 50mm or probably even 56mm would fit on the Flash.

Things I would have changed: The side wheel attaches with two screws through a rubber layer! Why not three screws, what engineer doesn't understand triangle vs balancing something with sideways force on two tiny set screws with rubber between? In other words, the aftermarket wheel is a tiny bit wobbly no matter how much you dare tighten it which it shouldn't be a very high torque value if you were just setting three set screws against the metal knob. I assume the issue is cosmetic damage of the knob? It just irks me because the wheel is pretty much required. It would be rock solid if 3 screws!

What others should know: I have very little experience with scopes, but did a ton of research. This is a really hard to beat scope at this price that can still be focused for closer distances. PLEASE tell me what else is as good as this if I was willing to spend $80 more. For the 36 colors feature in general: Playing with all the colors is a fun novelty. There actually were a couple colors I found that I liked better than the reds/greens. I found a sort of pale blue and a purple that were subtle to me, not distracting. Note that you can adjust the brightness of the red/green to be about perfect in any case, but you can't adjust the brightness of the custom colors. Also you're gonna need to look at their chart of custom color array. It's not super obvious what you're cycling through with either of the buttons if you just grab it and start pressing.

  • Alex from USA asked:

    Are the rings that come with this scope tall enough to work comfortably with the kral puncher breaker?

    • marvin from USA asked:

      Will this scope fit the rail on a Gamo .22 Magnum Swarm pellet gun? Is there any other scope you would recommend that you like better?

      • Mark from USA:

        Yes the scope will stand up to the Gamo Swarm. You will need different ring. 30 MM high 11 mm dovetail base rings.

    • marvin from USA asked:

      Does this scope fit the rail on a Gamo .22 magnum swarm? Are there any scopes you like better for this rifle?

      • Mark from USA:

        The scope will work.The rings that come with it are wrong. You will need 30 mm hgih 11mm dovetail base rings.
