Built just for airgunners, this scope has so many special features that I hardly know where to start! Let's start with the multi-color lit reticle. There isn't a shooter who hasn't "lost" his reticle because it was the same color as his target. Leapers knows that. So, turn on the light, find a contrasting reticle color, dial in the brightness you need and go for it. See clearly, sharply any time of day, in any light and against any target.

The True Strength platform is unique to Leapers scopes. Leapers puts their scopes and mounts on spring guns to test their products. This scope and the supplied mount are tried and true, so you can be assured that your scope will work on any powerplant, including the harshest-recoiling spring-piston air rifles.

We know that you're not living in a bubble and that your gun and scope will have to stand up to some rough use. That's where Leapers scopes really shine. Their zero lock/reset target turrets are not only easy to change but they can be locked so bumping against things won't change your scope settings.

Step away from those other scopes that easily lose their settings -- or require hex wrenches to change them -- and experience the easy utility of zero lock/reset.

New scope review
January 24, 2019
Haven't had a lot of time with this scope as yet, but I already have two scopes from this
company that have been proven performers and I have no doubt this one will do what
I need. I mounted it to my new Benjamin Marauder in .22 cal. and after around 45 shot or so
I like this combination. Scope is clear, and adjustments are clean and crisp. Mil-dot recticle
is very nice,
ProsThus far I like everything about this optic.
Best UsesTarget and hunting.

Mounted this scope on my Walther LGV .22 cal using the Leapers Accushot 1-Pc Mount w/1" Rings, 3/8" Dovetail. I've owned this combo for about 1 1/2 years. Close to 3000 rounds. Scope has held zero. On a good day I have place 5 shots inside a 25 cent coin size target at 35 yards. Highly recommend both the scope,mount & rifle.
ProsExcellent quality & performance.
ConsNot really a con but I would have preferred this scope in a non illuminated model to save weight.

Optics are really sharp, the AO feature works perfect, and I like the way the turrets work. Compared to what I've had before, this is pretty nice. If I could shoot the rifle as well as the scope can point, I'd be a happy guy.
ProsOverall workmanship, mounts up easily, good solid equipment from mounts to turrets.

I was able to setup this scope on my Umarex Fusion very quickly, zeroed it in very easily and it has maintained consistent accuracy.
ProsVery user friendly and a high quality scope at very good price point.

Easy to zero extremely accurate I could only speak to accuracy of about 15 yards because I shoot inside a screen courtyard
Pros Is it to zero Clarity the scope is good the mli dots are a help when you shoot at a range longer or shorter than your zero.
ConsI have had to retighten the scope several times since the initial installation. Was having trouble keeping it zeroed in. Not sure this is the right scope for a springer.

So Far a GREAT Scope!!!
June 24, 2017
Put this scope on with new hawks solid 4 bolt mount, and scope had just enough tube length for mounting with med lock tight and zeroed right in as I used an aluminum can shim on rear mount for some barrel drop!!! As with most air rifles, (mine is the gamo bone collector 177) ambient temp on rifles can play a part on staying zeroed. So when I come out of the AC in my house, I let the rifle get to the outside temp range and then shoot 3 or 4 shots at a small half fist size rock on the ground to warm it up so to speak, and then shoot at my splatter target at 25 yds and Bingo, Right in there every time!!! Love this Scope as it is a TRUE STRENGHT Scope so far with about 250 rds so far!!! Get It as I Love IT!!!
ProsClear as a Bell, Stays Zeroed, Love the 3x9 and the AO for distance Shooting as I have 3 target boxes at 25, 35 & 50 Yard sets and Get Nice Tight Nickle Groups @25, quarter size @35 & 2 1/4 inch @ 50 Using my Caldwell Deadshot FieldPod!!! Buy It, You'll Like It!!!

Put this scope on my new Gamo Urban and was amazed how close it was right out of the box ! Only a couple of clicks needed to hitting dead center. Was very easy to mount and seems to be a sturdy unit.
ProsNice scope for the money . Lighted reticle a plus !
ConsMust be careful if resetting zero after sighting in as to not disturb the true , which changed when I did mine ,so I had to resight again and all"s good . I will now not worry about setting the zero numbers .

It is very clear and sharp to the edge even at 5 yards. However at 5 yards the scope needs to be set at 6 power or less for the clarity. Anything 10 yards and above it works at any power level. Point of impact does not change with power setting. The locking resettable turrets are a big plus. Once sighted in and zero set and locked it has held zero. I have only shot about 150 rounds so far but has held zero.

Nice clear scope and holds zero well. I did have to change to a 1 piece mount instead of the rings that came with it on my Hatsan 95. After 2 other scopes that didn't, this one is holding up well. The rear cap shakes loose regularly. I usually just remove it if I am shooting targets. The adjustable objective works well. This scope was recommended to me by Agd. and I have no regrets since buying it.
ProsClarity and strength.
ConsRear cap comes off when shooting.

I own a Gamo Whisper Fusion IGT .177 Cal. Air Rifle and the packaged scope, although, nice enough did not have an adjustable objective. I also had difficulty with consistency. I love the rifle, but became very frustrated with dialing in the scope as I engage at closer distances (10 - 15 yds.).

Check out the scope centering operators manual video at and owners manual pdf download at Scope (for general scopes).pdf&folder=manual for additional info/specifics as to what this scope has to offer. I love it!!
ProsLight transmission through the 40mm adjustable objective lens is fantastic providing a very sharp image of target once all adjustments are made. Great owners manual (READ IT as many adjustments for your operating pleasure and success are in place with this scope) and assisting videos available (see my review). The scope is sealed and nitrogen filled, shock proof, fog proof, and rainproof. I appreciate the options provided by the EZ-TAP« Illumination Enhancing System.

Handles the unique recoil signature of a gas piston air gun with flying colors! The adjustments knobs make sighting in a breeze! I don't even use the lighted reticle, the large objective lets in tons of light! A good compliment to the Gamo whisper.
ProsComes with everything needed to mount and use. Seems to be quite good quality.
ConsThe flip open scope caps are nice, but I find it easier to just pull them off when shooting.
