-The scope is well built and durable. After 2 years of regular and rugged use, I have never encountered any function issues with the scope or the QD rings. In addition to regular knocks, jolts, and scrapes, it is able to withstand the recoil of a spring powered air rifle (the bilateral forces of a spring piston are notorious for destroying good firearm scopes).
-The optics are clear, and more than acceptable for the price point.
-The adjustable objective and magnification settings are very user friendly.
-Due to the compact size of this scope and its limited eye relief, I have never been able to shoot from a relaxed shooting stance. Regardless of the host of this scope, I have always found myself uncomfortable with how far I have to lean in to get proper eye relief.
Summary: The quality of the scope is more than satisfactory. I have put the scope through a lot, and it has never let me down. And, due to the limited eye relief and compact nature of the scope, it has really never been quite right for me. If I could go back, I would have gotten the full length 3-9X from the same manufacturer.
Additional Note: I have never felt the need to use the illuminated reticle feature, and consequently cannot comment on the function of this feature. Rest assured however, the scope functions just fine without a battery.
Now, this is the part that lost the sight a star already. I have always mounted scopes by leveling the top turret to the rail. I then verify this by checking the reticle against a level mark on the wall. One always equals the other. This gun has a slightly canted reticle (just a few degrees off, but it's off). The UTG instructions ignore leveling the top post (which is ignorant in the extreme in my opinion), and ONLY instruct you to level the reticle. This is counter to every other scope manufacturer on the planet, and honestly it bothers me more than a bit.
That said, the scope's clarity is wonderful. I can get it to focus clearly at as close as 1yd (at lower magnifications), and the distance clarity is excellent as well.
This scope was bought to replace a CVLife 3-9x32 unit which had a HORRIBLY short eye relief. It's mounted to an AR15 pistol with a 12.5" barrel, chambered in 6.5 Grendel. I'll definitely be updating this weekend once I get some rounds put through it, and will also get some video of the scope functions including the turrets, as well as the colored reticles.
11/04/16 - I made a video today going over the scope, then took my pistol out to sight it in. Started at 25yds, adjusted it to center, then dropped back to 50yds. The scope was easy to adjust, and seemed to work well enough. Later I'll set it up with a 200yd zero using 123 grain Hornady SST ballistic tips...but for now I just wanted to get it shooting the Wolf 100 grain FMJBT I have on hand. Final result was about 2.5MOA...but keep in mind this was in no way the scope's fault. It's on a pistol, using very inconsistent steel case ball ammunition. Average fps was over 10 shots was 2400, but the variance was as much as 60fps (2380-2440).
Anyhow, I'll update later if I run into any issues. I'd still give the scope a solid 4 at this point. The slight cant of the reticle wasn't much of a factor in use. More a sign of poor quality control than anything else in my opinion.
No, this scope is not made in the USA, but the quality seems to be pretty good for a non-American product. By having the scope made outside of the US, the price is brought down. The quality of UTG Leapers products is definitely better than NC-Star products. I bought this to mount on a 5.56/2.23 rifle. The scope held up great at the range and the glass didn't fall apart due to the recoil. The scope is supposedly nitrogen-filled, rain proof, fog proof, and shock proof like you would expect for any half-decent scope.
Because this scope has external windage and elevation knobs, the locking ring features come in handy for keeping your zero when transporting your rifle in a case. The magnification ring is a bit stiff, but that's a lot better than having a loose magnification ring. If you. The scope does have a reticle that can be illuminated but the good thing is that you don't have to use the illumination.
If you buy this scope, keep in mind that it uses a second focal plane mil-dot reticle. This means that if you want to do range estimation, you have to use a modified mil-dot formula. First, you use the standard mil-dot formula for 10X magnfication to get a preliminary range. You then take this range and multiply it by your actual scope magnification and then divide by 10 to get your true range.
The scope rings that come with the package have these quick detach levers. The levers seem to be slightly loose, but I haven't had problems yet...
Also, the dust cover for the front objective lens is too loose if you also install the sunshade. If you want to use the sunshade, I recommend wrapping the front of the sunshade with some black electrical tape so that the dust cover will fit on more snugly.
