Things I liked: Great scope, good eye relief.reticle is easy on the eyes multiple colors nice feature well constructed and great features
Things I liked: Price for the clarity, ease of use, easy to zero. Been using it for a few months now and im hitting everything im aiming at 50+ yards in various shooting conditions of wind, elevation change, and I've been shooting mostly braced up against corners or my F350. Couldn't be happier with it mounted on my Steel Eagle break barrel .22 with the Np2 piston. The illuminated cross hairs are nice to change color to contrast against backdrop really helps things pop more and grab eye focus.
Things I would have changed: Quality control. I might just spoiled from using Aimpoint on my personal Ar15, or Trijicon Acog from my time in the Marines but I noticed today when switching out my scope rings that the whole thing is out of plumb. The cross hairs are tilted a few degrees left in comparison to the elevation knobs, which in turn our turned a few degrees right from the sun shade. Which doesn't bother me so much for the price I paid for the scope. Just makes it look funky when aligned with the rifle, and took longer than should to realign to my air rifle.
What others should know: Don't hesitate on grabbing one of these there cheap in comparison to other scopes, have a good quality of build for what you pay, and have had no issues other than what I listed above.
Things I liked: First I bought the wire reticle version of this scope and I liked it a lot except for the fat reticle wire and all its fat mil dots. So I bought this etched version hoping the reticle would be better, and it is soooo much better than I expected! This is basically a fine wire reticle, and they should advertise that. Kinda hard to measure but my estimate is the wire reticle is 4-5 times wider than the etched one. Rather than nine dots per leg, every other one is a hash, so from center there's a hash, then a dot etc. So four dots and five hashes per, much nicer! The etched also looks much better when illuminated. The light is at an angle so it casts a shadow on the edge of the wire reticle and its dots, but this etched reticle is perfecly and cleanly lit. Plus only the center thin portion of the reticle is lit so it's a floating X in the center which looks much cooler. This is obviously much better than the wire version, but when side by side this one makes the wire look embarassing.
Things I would have changed: Wish I had bought this before wasting $ on two metal wire reticle versions of this scope... The illumination is still way too bright (imo) and the current dimmest setting should be the brightest and go down from there. All the colors are useless imo except red, maybe green, but doesn't matter b/c they're far too bright to use at night which is the only use I'd have for it. I think one button for on/off, maybe a second or switch for red/green, and a dial for brightness that goes all the way to nothing. The side parallax knob has a bit of play in it. Not a big deal but it would be nice if it were tight and thus more precision.
What others should know: The only real bummer about this scope is it has spoiled me and made most of my other scopes unsat in comparo, so it looks like I may have to spend a ton of $ to replace a lot of scopes.....

What are the TOTAL MOAs on the elevation and windage movements? Are they >60 >90 ??
Will this fit the Gamo Accu without blocking the loading port?
One more question. The barrel of the Gamo Bone Collector Bull Whisper has a plastic shroud that makes the top of the barrel high enough that it interferes with the scope that came with it. Not physically, but visually. There's a distracting "halo" distortion due to the barrel being visible through the scope. Would a high profile mount provide enough clearance to prevent that with this scope? After all, this scope has a larger lense, 44mm vs the oem 32mm.
A high profile mount would work, or at least make it better. But suggest using a riser mount (if you want to keep your original rings)
What type of scope base is on your gun? What type of mount do you need? Weaver, Picatinny, 3/8″ or 11mm? Do you need 2-pc mounts or a 1-pc mount? 30mm or 1″? Scope mounts intro (Airgun Academy class)
Scope includes mount. Need a different mount?
