Some of my airguns simply do not need expensive optics. So, given that I realize fully that I am fishing in the mud, does anyone have any experience with this brand? If you can comment from experience, please do, with a link to the model with which you have experience.

Many thanks.

i bought a red dot for my MP5, so far so good I keep it.
And I bought a 3-9x40 something scope. Because there is no focus adjustment, I finally returned it.

It's cheap priced, quality and material is good. But I didn't try the high-end or expensive optics, so maybe my experience is just for reference.

I have a Nikon binoculars, it's a little bit expensive, but super good at all fields. But a Nikon scope is way more expensive than the gun I want to put on... so I don't think it's worth the money to spend...

Hi Ed,

I have 3 RioRand Red\Green Dot Reflex scopes on my .177 pistols and so far, have great performance out of each. Solid build, electronics work as described and the low light reflex setting is perfect for my indoor 10m range, allowing me to obtain good accuracy and consistency in achieving tight .250" groups!

The two models I have are THIS unit on a Benji Trail NP and Umarex Trevox break-barrels, and THIS unit on a Beeman P17 pneumatic over-lever!

Price is right and controls and functions respond well! To install these, I'm using a Sniper 3\8" dovetail to 22mm Picatinny adapter...See Here !

Hope this helps,

Ted

I've got a red dot and a 6-24x50 ao Rio Rand. Both seem to be working well. Pretty clear picture with the scope though I'm sure it's not as nice as an expensive one. Zooms well all the way to 24 for me.

(personally I'd prefer a 3-9x40 or 2.5-10x40, something smaller and lighter)
