Mounted the scope with accushot 1 inch rings. Rings are first-class. The scopes windage adjustment knob came loose immediately and would not zero. Had to disassemble it and reassemble it to get it to function. Very frustrating. I've owned other BSA scopes and have no problems with them. I guess I was a little disappointed in quality. On a positive note, the optics and recticle are great.

Optics very good.

Knob adjustment problems.

Anyone looking for light scope should check this one out. At 1 pound this one fits the bill . Mounted on my Talon-P with a 12 inch .177 barrel in place and a quick detach Talon SS air tank make a light and pointable combo . Just unscrew the tank and stuff into a backpack for day of hunting .

Clear glass , side focus whats not to like.

Maybe better lens covers but thats nit picking at this price you get what you get ?

works well with my umarex octane 22 cal

I just got this scope 2 weeks ago and once I first opened the box I couldn't wait to have it mounted on my rifle. Really clear, sharp optics and handles the power of high power rifles. I have it in my gamo bull whisper extreme .22 and it is the perfect combo. You will love it!

Looks great, clear-sharp optics, and handles high power rifles.

Nothing till now

i got this for Christmas and put it on my gamo big cat and it has made the gun ten times better, before with the stock scope i could not hit a can at 30 yards. but now i can hit cans every time at 100 yards and get dime sized groups at 25 yards. this scope handles the recoil very well and look cool with the sun shade that comes with it.

everything, especially the reset-able turrets and the focus adjustments are on the side of the gun

it cost money, lol

Will it fit on the gamo silent cat original scope mounts

asked Decota

I believe not as you'll need a 1" . I personally recommend the Leapers Premium 1" Rings, Medium, Weaver Mount, See-Thru as these are the exact same I use for this scope on a .22 cal Gamo Bull Whisper Extreme. Hope this is useful to you.


Not sure but I can tell you it for right on my mounts for the crosman venom dusk. Which had a 32mm stock scope. I'm not crazy about this scope, eye relief is a little far and don't exect anything within 15 yards to be in focus. Anything past that you will see clear as day.

Will this work with a daisy air rifle?

asked Hunter

Can this scope handle airgun application? BSA website doesn't particularly say that.

asked yul-woong from USA

With a parallax setting of 100 yards, of course you'd need a large object-- a can, one Reviewer's claim-- at 30 yards because it would be so blurry. I needed a scope with all the specs given, but that 100 yard parallax setting won't work for shorter range pesting.

asked alex

I just bought a Gamo Silent Stalker Whisper from Airgun Depot but already want to replace the 3-9 x 40 scope that comes with it. Good things were said about this BSA contender AO scope. Will that fit on my Silent Stalker? Could I use the existing one piece mount from my Gamo scope to mount the BSA contender? If not, could you kindly recommend the type and size of the mount that I would need for this BSA? sorry for the list of questions. I just want to order what I need in one shot. Thanks very much

asked chris Desiderio

The mounts should work fine for the BSA scope. And the scope will work great on the gun as long as it is attached tightly.

Scott from USA

will this scope work with this gun-Olympic Arms PCR-97 RIS Assault Stock AEG Airsoft Rifle

asked Richard from USA

Yes, as long as you get the right rings.
