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.

The multi-color helps aiming at the target due to the contrast in color. The quality of the scope is great. The adjustment knobs are easy to use and the locking features are a great feature.

By MichaelUSAApril 29, 2021

I had mine on 2 magnum springers, absolute scope eaters for almost 5 yrs before the scope wouldn't adjust up any more. UTG replaced with brand new one I am currently using. Most important thing is have a digital copy or receipt; you'll need that. I am getting a 4x16x40 for a new springer I just picked up.

Clear glass, great adjustment turrets, durable

Really not much, 30mm tube maybe

By BruceUSAOctober 31, 2020

Shooting the Hatsun 125, .25 high power monster we use to hunt iguanas here in south florida. My buddy had the same rifle and an upgrade scope. I did somewhat better with iron sights than the bundled scope. And slightly better with his scope. But it took dozens of shots to adjust because I was missing the target half the time at 15 yards. Never have I shot so bad. Could not even get the image right due to distance from occular. I decided a decent scope was the ticket and selected the UTG 2-9 40mm. I also picked up a one piece ring mount, Accushot High Offset Pro Mount. Because I really wanted that offset back to my eye. What a world of difference! Initial shots at 10 yards was within 4” of bullseye and corrected with just two shots. Ten more shots at 25 yards within 1 inch circle including final tweak. Parallax and diopter adjustments easy and sharp. Imaging perfect. Going hunting this afternoon in the local canals, iguana kill shot is the size of a dime, this should be great!

Immediate and huge improvement

By BobJanuary 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,

Thus far I like everything about this optic.


By JohnJanuary 4, 2019

Easy setup,put it on a Benjamin Prowler,way better than scope that came with rifle.

By EricUSANovember 14, 2018

Holds zero, even on my break barrel.

By RandyUSAJune 11, 2018

Been using this scope 3 years now . It is on my Ruger Yukon and be it is my squirrel hunting gun. Killed dozens of the little critters and love it.

Not to expensive very well built and holds zero very well.


By Troy b.June 5, 2018

Attatched this scope on a benjamin trail np elite. Works great. Only issues i have come across is the colored crosshair are rather dim and the veiwing angle has a very narrow sweet spot.

Clear image holding zero very well.

Dim color and narrow sweet spot

By Jim M.May 24, 2018

Clarity is amazing with this scope. Ability to change colors is wonderful. Accuracy is second to none.

By DennisUSANovember 7, 2017

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.

Excellent quality & performance.

Not really a con but I would have preferred this scope in a non illuminated model to save weight.

Are the included rings Dovetail, weaver, or picatinny?

asked Mark from USA


asked Carl from USA

What do I need to mount this on my Beeman Chief II in .177 ? The pic of what is included with this mount shows a 2 piece mount, but I can't tell if it comes with 11mm mounts

asked Tim from USA

Will this scope work on the Seneca Aspen .25?

asked Terrence from USA

Will this fit the Kral puncher breaker bull pup in 25 cal

asked Lane from USA

will this scope fit on the Marauder with the Lothar Walther barrel using the medium Accushot rings

asked Gary from USA

No. You need high rings to clear the magazine.

Mark from USA

I have a Gamo Swarm Whisper fusion 10x will this scope fit or is it too long for the magazine? Maybe the UTG Bug buster would be a better fit because it's more compact? Not sure if this is going to fit wondering if Airgun depot would let me change my order since it hasn't shipped to the UTG Bug Buster since it's the same price.

asked Gregory from USA

Well I had a 12 3/8 inch scope on The the first Gamo 10x and it was to long but u can slide the rail on the gun back and it will fit

Lane from USA

Gamo says for my rifle the scope needs to be under 12 inches this shows as 12.6 inches? How would that work and still clear the 10x gen 1 magazine? I see most people mount the UTG BugBuster to Gamo swarm 10x.

Gregory from USA

The scope will fit. You need 1" high mounts to clear the magazine system.

Mark from USA

Can I use this on a .177 caliber rifle

asked Bruce

will this scope fit a gamo raptor whsper?

asked Gary Kantak

will this scope fit the gamo whisper fusion igt .22cal

asked james from USA

asked Herman

Will this cope work on a Benjamin marauder pcp air pistol?

asked Paul stallings

Want to put this on a Benjamin maximus. 22 pcp with 11mm dove tail mount what scope rings should I get for this setup

asked Jordan

I have a Gamo Bull Whisper and the scope it came with is now broken. I just hunt small game and don't plan on shooting much over 100 yards. Based on experience, does anyone recommend a different scope? I'm planning on buying this one but if anyone has another recommendation let me know!
