In my opinion, it is an amazing scope with wonderful clarity, but cheap mounting brackets. The mounting brackets I ordered seemed real nice until I tried to mount them to the picatinny rail, where I found that one of the scope mounts was stripped from the factory to the point that I could not even hand tighten it. However, I believe this scope is amazing for the money you spend for it. It has exceptional clarity, and clear Focus picture. Not to mention, I love the throw lever for magnification. A trip to Walmart and $30 later fix the scope ring issue. However 160 ish dollars for the whole setup cannot be beat, the value cannot be overlooked. I have observed that similar scopes with magnification like unto this, as well as being a first focal plane scope will be at a very minimum of $350. I would recommend this scope in a second to someone who is trying to get an air rifle. The calculations are spot on, I was able to hit a bird at 107 yards with the holdover with my Umarex Gauntlet 2 in 25 caliber. Most deals with this price range seem too good to be true, however this one is not. It is well worth the money.
