Things I liked: Purchased from PA. Mounted this on my Beeman R9 and have to say it has held zero for 1500 shots so far. Very easy to zero. I use the Mantis 1" scope mounts and they are very sturdy. I only paper punch at 45" in my backyard range but have shot it out to 35 yards, at times. If Mantis scopes are ever manufactured with increased magnification, i.e., 4-16-44MM or 4-16-50MM I will the be the first in line to buy one!

Things I would have changed: None really.

What others should know: The reticle is not etched. Mil-dots are very easy to use for holdover.

Things I liked: Picture is clear and there is no distortion around the edges. This scope is built very solidly and looks very high-quality on the outside.

Things I would have changed: The turret adjustments simply didn't work on this scope! I spent 45 minutes adjusting the turrets and could not get within 4 inches of the bulls eye at 10 yards. The turret adjustment knob simply stopped turning and would not adjust any lower. The windage adjustment didn't work either! Another issue is that the reticle lines are far too thick, but that's a design problem. I prefer thin lines over the thick ones on the Mantis.

What others should know: I am replacing it with a Hawke scope with the same specs (4-12x40 AO). It's a little bit more expensive, but I believe it will be worth it. I have not had any problems with my Hawke scope on my Marauder Pistol. Though the Hawke scopes cost more, I believe the quality control may be better. I regret giving the Mantis scope a try.

  • john from USA asked:

    it sure seems most airgun scopes advertise capability of withstanding springer recoil. I have a few harsh ones (R-1's, Wby Patriot, Wby Tomahawk) that have destroyed a few scopes. These Mantis seem just what I'm looking for (no electronics, covered turrets, medium size objective lens). What is the chance that the Mantis line at this very reasonable price point would hold up?

    • Tyler from USA:

      I have used this scope on a Hatsan 125 magnum springer for months without any issues. I would think it will be just fine on any of the guns you mentioned.

  • Ed from USA asked:

    Does it come with a bikini cover or something to protect the lenses?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Yes they do.

  • Matthew from USA asked:

    Where are Mantis scopes made?
