Low price scope.
All base & ring mounting fasteners are cap screws, and package includes an allen key.
Lower profile than Crosman 4x scope.
(lower profile = less elevation error per distance).
Windage & elevation adjustments click & stay nicely, but they require quite a bit of effort to turn.
This can create load on the scope forcing it off zero.
Due to lower profile, scope can touch the factory sights on some rifles. (not a prob if you remove them)
I guess I lucked out. It turned out to be good enough scope for a medium recoil rifle...
Opened package carefully to not force the scope out, and removed lens caps.
The instructions say to separate the rings. Last time I did that, it made to scope "turn" due to the tolerance of the rings..
So, I left the scope as is, straight out of the package and tightened the bases first to the rifle.
Then I loosened the rings only enough to rotate the scope to level the crosshair, and to move the scope back & forth to focus.
Torqued all allen screws evenly.
Bench vised the rifle, and used a target type pellet with a point for zeroing.
After zeroing the scope, at 60 ft range (20 yds) I was able to get a group of 3 in a dime sized area.
The scope is consistent enough for a medium pump rifle.
Don't put this on a highend air rifle. It would probably suffer from recoil.
