Price, finish and clear optics
Every time i came to use it the zero was off and after re-zeroing it would only stay on target for a short time
I have just bought an s200 which now i have my new scope i am over the moon with but when i first bought it there was a Richter Optik 3-9 x 40 scope attached. Never seen one of these before so i decided to give it a chance at £50 on the price of my package. On first impression i was quite pleased with it the optics are nice and clear and the overall finish is good BUT and it a big BUT when i got to the range i found it hard to zero once i had zeroed it i decided to take some bunnys out at my local farm. i turned up having my zero set at the range at 30 yards and some shot at closer and longer ranges to work out which mil dots to use i was confident enough to take on rabbits from 15 - 40 yards I waited first rabbits came out bang on my 30 yards zero i squeezed the trigger the pellet left the muzzle and went high DAMN!!! Oh well, I'll move on to another spot another half hour and rabbits were leaving the warrens for me to shoot again about 30 yards out this time it hit the ground in front of the bunny HELL!!! I went home feeling a little disappointed in my new purchases. The next day i returned to the range to find the gun shooting well off target so i zeroed it again went down to fill with air came back and it was off again not due to power curve it was shooting left by a mile. I feel I've waisted £50 and time and bunnys i removed it and am now using a optima 3-9 x 56 parallax cost me second hand ??? Yes £50 would of been more new i know but with the fifty i wasted on the one i could of spent £100 on a second hand one and got a beauty. So there you go i guess you do get what you pay for. I should of sent it back maybe I just got a duff one but its put me off them period I wont be buying or recommending this scope to anyone.
