I am thinking about picking up one of these bad boys from Stormbringers, wondering what everyone thoughts are on this model?

Sells for $244 if I remember correctly, plus tax.
Picatinny mount and 80mm wheel included.

Planning to put this on my QB78D

That should be a good scope, but it's a lot of scope for a QB78D, which is sub-500fps.

So maybe go for the swat? Or "bug buster"?

Leapers is a pretty good scope company, I'd recommend them! Yeah as Penage said, that's a massive scope for a QB and sub 500 and that.... But...

Whatever floats your boat!

The 3-12x44 SWAT would be nice, as would the bug buster. I'd personally go for the SWAT, if I remember correctly the bug buster is AO while the SWAT is..Side Wheel...

Thanks for the opinions.. I am going in on thursday.

I went out today with just my little 4x centre point scope and I can hit a red bull can every time at 55M but I can barely see the damn thing

I'm not sure what the issue is on spending $250 for a scope for a <500 gun, if that's what you have and/or want to shoot. You can always relocate it if/when your air gun needs/desires shift -- etc./ad nauseum. :)

As for the QB78, If you're looking for a friend with some power, it's a big fail to discount your QB78: He becomes a real PAL in minutes. Embarrassingly accurate and hard-hitting for $200 and change (including the cost of the <500 rifle).

I suppose when you look at it. 250 for a scope is pretty reasonable! I like your thinking. I dont have any plans on taking it into the PAL range but I do however want to see what I am shooting at. And under 500 fps accuracy is everything
