  • Excerpt: Compact & light weight. Tripod supplied is basically useless. Focus knob could be easier to use. For general viewing magnification & center clarity is acceptable.
  • Pros: Bright Eyepiece, Strong Magnification
  • Cons: Poorly Illuminated

Okay for the money

  • Excerpt: Bottom-line: I got this for $ and for that amount, it's a good value. The scope is a light-weight singlet objective design that comes with a small tripod and cloth and hard cases. The focus knob works smoothly without too much resistance. Image harpness is fair across the center two-thirds of the image, but blurs at the edges, and the eye-piece starts to lose it at higher magnifications.
  • Pros: Light-weight, Low-cost
  • Cons: Chromatic abberations

Hit's the spot

  • Excerpt: I use the scope for checking targets on a 10 meter air rifle/air pistol range, not for anything outdoors or at long range. It's optically quite good at 10m and one of the few scopes said by the maker to focus that close. The 15 mm zoom setting lets me see an entire target at once, and it's above average crisp to the edges, maybe a little soft in the corners. At 45mm it's sharp enough to see very fine detail including whether a pellet hole is or isn't touching the line.
  • Pros: Compact, Quality Lenses
