    There has been some talk about this scope lately. I wan’t a scope with my Talon SS. Do you think this would be a good choice? It’s like $70 at Wal-Mart.

    That would work fine for you. I saw it also at WM and people report it is a nice scope

    I have a centerpoint 3 x 9 x 50 mm with red/green illumination

    I like my scope………they have a lifetime warranty

    You can compare them to the Leapers………..a lot of the leapers don’t have lifetime warranty

    I haven’t heard anything bad about the centerpoint scopes………maybe someone else will chime in on this one.

    Good. I’m going to use it as a general shooting scope. Some hunting, some plinking, and some paper shooting. Leapers was my first choice, but the price on the CenterPoints are better. What do you think about Leapers in comparison with CenterPoint?

    It has been reported they are made in the same factory. With that said I like the Leaper scopes. Not the best but they do just fine.

    I have one on my talon SS, for the price I think it is a good value, and the mil dots are nice for air guns!

    well everyone says they love leapers….I DONT

    my big leapers now sold 4-16×56 was nice to look through….but adjustmens where bad…sometimes a click would do anything others it would suddenly move alot .

    once zeroed….it would be fine…and the suddenly with no change be way off…this happened on several rifles where it lived as it got moved down the ranks….

    i tried other scopes on same rifles and they dont behave like that…even the dirt cheap nikko sterling goldcrown 4-12×50 that i got for 39$ does it

    for some reason leapers have started using the red/green illumination thing…which is useless….even on lowest power it will ruin your night vision as in your ability to see in the dark with the bare eye…the old fashion 7-11 click adjustment of red power was way better…that could be turned down low

    and it not just the one series of leapers that has trouble with the turrets/way things move inside…i got a 4-16×50 with target turret bough before i realized this….and it does exactly the same…its now just sitting on the table gathering dust….and the simmons 3-9×40 is seeing all the action

    the only leapers i do like is the little bugbuster….its quite good, allthough crosshairs are thick which makes in accurate but for hunting its fine

    tasco varmint 2.5-10×44 is seeing the most action….and is my favorite….
    Rex 5-25×56 is currently on the HMR, it prolly shares parts with leapers but at least the turrets are better

    when i looked at the centerpoint line…it looks very much like the leapers line…and is priced simelar online….i can see why its suspected that they come from the same place.

    if i where to get a scope i would go for one in the tasco varmint line…theres plenty to choose from.

    Thanks for your help guys. I went to Wal-Mart to get a Centerpoint 4-16x40mm scope, and mounted it on my gun. It makes a HUGE difference. Where I used to get around 1/4″ groups, I now can get the same hole. It’s just at a small distance. It’s got an illuminated reticle and mil-dots. This is awesome. The magnification is what makes it so much better. Also the AO.

    Thanks again,

    Julien

    Been using it more and more. It’s great. I was very excited. I can’t imagine how happy I’ll be when I get the Talon SS. I do have one small complaint though. It came with mounts that were way too wide for any of my airguns. What’s with that? Is the scope made for .22 rimfires and that’s their standard width of dovetails? I got lucky and was able to use some old scope mounts that came with an old Bushnell Sportsman. Here is a cool video/review of the Centerpoint scope http://youtube.com/watch?v=bEvU_ClXLOw

    It probably came with rings designed for a Weaver rail.

    Airguns (Including the Condor/Talon) and most .22LR use the narrow dovetails that were all familiar with.

    Firearms and Airsoft generally use the wider Weaver/Picatinny rails (the difference betwen weaver and picatinny is the distance between the slots, in weaver its 3.8mm and with Picatinny its 5mm)

    Once you’ve seen both its easy to tell the difference, weaver is much bigger and has symetrical pointed edge, the airgun rail is a simple dovetail and a lot smaller.

    This is a Weaver –

    Ah. Alright. If I were to get a tri-rail, which mounts would you recommend with this scope so that it isn’t too low nor too high? It’s 40mm.
