This scope is nice works well did take long to get my gun zeroed in and stay at zero zooms in far and zooms in close very nice scope the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because I‚€™m little skeptical with the mounts for it but they haven‚€™t moved for me yet
ProsGood scope

Nice scope for carbines. QD lever lock mounts are junk
March 29, 2019
The Quick Detach lever lock mounts are pot metal junk. They lever broke the first time I mounted it on my new Hatsan ATP2. Not enough ‚€œplay‚€ in the mount to cam the lever over. Enjoy the scope but throw the rings away and order decent 1‚€ rings when you order the scope,

Solid Accurate Economy Scope

UTG 3-9X40 Bug Buster

This is a competent small scope, and a good performer for its price range. The zoom is from 3 to 9X, which is generally a good zoom range for an air gun scope and the likely distance that it will be used at.

It has a wire milrad reticle with illumination in green and red. It appears to be robust. The markings alternate between dot and dash, but unlike some higher powered scopes, where dots are half milrad, these are one milrad. This is a second focal plane scope, so the reticle is not a fixed angle but changes with zoom. At 9X, I get about 0.95mRad per mark.

One of my pet peeves is moa knobs on mRad scopes. mRads and MOAs are both angles, and if the manufacturers would put 1/10mRad knobs on mRad scopes, and 1/4moa knobs on moa scopes, I think people would be a lot less confused using them. This scope fails on that point. Remember that about 3.5 minutes is equal to one mRad and it is easy enough to compensate, but still, why use different units between the knob and the reticle? It would be nice to read the hash mark values on the knobs without a lot of thinking.

The knobs do repeat, you can walk a box with no problem. It is square and re-zeros to within a click.

The range scales are reasonably accurate but sparse, once the diopter has been set for parallax. I found this to be slightly off infinity, but not a strain for my old eyes. The biggest issue is hold over for shorter shots while on gopher duty. I sight at 20 yrds since it is convenient a works well between 17 and 70 for typical pellet trajectories. At shorter ranges, the hold over gets quite large, and there is a large gap in range markings between 25 and 12 yards, which is the most critical for hold over and the most likely for gopher hunting. I am going to set up and scribe dot lines for my scope, but given what someone uses and air gun for, manufactures should put more resolution in that range.

One thing that I really do not understand is the attraction of a 3-yard focus. My bullpup requires a 3-inch center spacing to get my head in with the cheek piece all the way down. Sighted in at 20 yards, that is a 7.5mRad hold over at 6 yards. I dont imagine I would ever shoot anything at 3 yards, but I wont see it through the scope anyway. There are a lot of things to correct with a zoom scope and in a lower cost optics, there are not a lot of surfaces to do that with. Unnecessary focal range, does not make that easier and probably results in lower performance in other more important qualities.

Optically, center of focus is sharp, at 9X but gets quite soft off center. There is a fair amount of chromatic aberration on bright edges, (the red and blue edges on sharp bright features), but is to be expected on a low-cost scope. At 3X, the depth of field is quite large, there is a fair amount of barrel distortion (straight lines bow at the edges of the field), but this should not cause any problems for scope use.

POI seems to track well with zoom, it is within the thickness of the reticle at the lower zoom but tends to be slightly low and right. I would call it more than acceptable.

The reticle illumination it there, and works for centered shots. In the dark, my eyes cannot focus on it and I think it would be better if a dimmer setting were available. Basically, I can place something at the cross hairs accurately, but at least for me, the dots and dashes are not visible for hold over.

The QD rings that come with the scope are solid, and seem to repeat within a click or so. I like being able to flip it off and replace it without tools. The flip up lens caps work well and although the objective ring rotates, it you center the hinge between 25 and 12, the angle does not change enough to be a problem. It also comes with a long aluminum sunshade, which is incompatible with the lens cap.

Bottom line. This appears to be a solid low-end optic. It has the limitations that one would expect in optical performance, but it is not a camera, and you can place the reticle on the target, and it will place the pellet where you want it. It is stable, all the adjustments work not only properly, but well. The biggest performance limitation is the thickness of the reticle and at least for my eyes the loss of dots with illumination. The range is good for most air gun use. The 3X allows for good field of view, and rapid target acquisition, and the 9X good enough to stack pellets at 20 yards. UTG has put the performance where it needs to be to get the job done, and they did a good job of managing the optical compromises.

Simple improvement that could be made. More range marks between 25 and 12 yards, 1/10th mRad knobs.

Clear, accurate scope.
ProsEasy to sight in. Lighted crosshairs work great.
ConsRings that came with it didn't work on my Gamo .22 cal pellet gun. After using the rings that came with the gun it worked great.

This scope is terrific both in quality and value. I used this on a QB.22 rifle for over a year with great results. It now resides on a Henry .22 lever action carbine. Sharp focus, easy to use, color reticle. I have many UTG/Leapers scopes, rings and rails and have never Ben disappointed.
ProsTop quality in every way.
ConsMight be too short in some applications to get proper eye relief.

So far I find this to be a well made scope I just mounted it last week and have not yet sighted it in but after careful examination everything is as it should be I would recommend this but make sure you have a Weaver Picatinay rail
Prosnice and short so It does not hang over the opening for loading pellets.

Excellent scope. Mounted it to my Marauder 25 cal., but had to buy offset scope rings to fit the rifle with proper eye relief. I bought the BKL scope mounts for proper mounting and using these mounts, sighting in was a breeze. Four clicks elevation straight out of the box on elevation and it was "smack-on", no windage adjustments were needed. Red and green illumination worked great, just keep it set to it's minimum setting to keep the retical from getting fuzzy. The AO actually was VERY close to my range finder in estimating distance as well, just clear up the sight picture starting at 5 yards and boom, you can get your distance right off of the AO yardage printed on the front optics. As far as the durability of this scope, I will give it an A+. My friend dropped my rifle and no damage came to the scope, only my rifle stock. This is a VERY shock resistant scope.
ProsGreat clarity, easy to use and the mil dot and turrets work spot-on. Great shock resistance, it's built like a tank! Inexpensive and is worth more than the price. Illumination is also excellent.
ConsToo short to fit some rifles properly, know your rifle before buying this for proper fit.

I mounted this on my Benjamin XL 22. it dialed in in just a few shots. I liked my rifle before but now I love it. This scope has turned my rifle into as good as a tack driver as a break barrel can be. I easily shoot a dime size group at 30 yards. Great bang for the bucks. The combo took two squirrels with head shots during sight in process.

Conseye relief . illumination is a little fuzzy but highlights well
