It's been a while since I purchased a scope.
Anyone have one of these ...

I do not that specific scope but I do have some impressions. AO is a good thing. 4x fixed seems very limited to me however ymmv. If it was my purchase I would spend a bit more and get variable mag. 3x9 or similar.

I don't have big money to spend on scopes. But I think I want to know where you plan to use the scope on?

To me, actually this one is very good. What I like:

5 yard close range to infinity, it's very good to put it on low power (non-PAL) guns especially 13XX / 2240 etc...

4x32 actually is very good and useful for almost everywhere. Not so big, not so small. (And I like the fix magnification rate too. Simple is good)

And other bonus make it a price tag of 99.99. But I think you get what you spent, right?

If you are looking for close range the UTG bug buster 3x9 focuses down to 3yards. Excellent durable scope in mil dot. UTG just released a 3x12 that focuses down to 3 yards and is side focus. A bit more $ but much more versatility.

I'm just not a fan of fixed 4x scopes. Fixed 10x with mildot sure.

I'd go with the Bugbuster as well. Mine focused down to 3 feet, seems to me, although it might have read 3 yards. At low powers, ie: 3X, you could easily see well enough to shoot bugs just a few feet in front of you, so - "BUGBUSTER" is well deserved.

FWIW, I have one of these and I love it. Clear and crisp, light and compact, and complete with flip caps, sunshade, Picatinny rings and Allen keys.

Last time I purchased a scope was in 2012 ...

I got two of these and really liked them.

My plan was to get something similar since this one is one longer available ...

In 4x32, there's this one: http://www.oshoot.ca/gshop/en/scopes/38 ... rings.html

and also this one: http://www.oshoot.ca/gshop/en/scopes/38 ... rings.html

Rather tempting I must say!

Edit: the True Hunter is also available with Weaver rings.

I'd have a look at the UTG Bugbuster on Ali-Baba. It's unbranded but essentially the same as the branded scope. I think it's around $100. but the wait will certainly be longer.

I have two of the Leapers/UTG 3-9x32mm with AO. Nice scope for the money. Mil dots, AO, includes mounts, parallax down to 5 yards, flip up caps, finger adjustable.

I have two of the Leapers 4 x 32 AO scopes.... one on a PCP Carbine, the other on a Pumper.... They are perfect for Grouse hunting, where shots are seldom over 35 yards.... I have used it successfully on Snowshoe Hares out to just over 50 yards.... Beyond that I find the magnification a bit lacking.... but for close in, quick shots, it's fabulous.... I set the focus at a default 20 yards, and everything from 10-35 is sharp and clear, and it's bright enough to hunt at dawn and dusk without issue.... They have accounted for well over 100 Grouse over the years, so they certainly do the job....
