Default Honest opinion about a scope

Bought this scope from Amazon. Reviews are decent, curious if anyone has first hand experience with it.




What I've read says they work okay for airsoft and low recoil guns, I mostly target shoot recreationally. Should I keep my order? Or cancel it and pick up a nikon for like 150

UTG is ok, although I thought the cross hairs were a bit thick for my taste; I prefer red dots on my 15-22s. First, I'm not hunting with it, second I don't shoot further than 100 yards.

I can easily hit cans, clay pigeons and steel targets at 100 yards with the red dot, no magnification required.

Your eyes, your targets, your decision. The 15-22 is not a tack-driver (won't drive nails at 100 yards).

I had a red dot and didn't love it. Wasn't bad, but just wasn't great. I'll post back once I get the scope and can shoot with it a bit

I put a UTG on mine. I just like the illuminated/not illuminated cross hairs. The MOA's on the red dot covers to much of the target for me. I'm old school and just put a sling and a UTG on it and I'm good to go. Try it and see if you like it, if not return it.

I have the UTG 3x9x40 with the red/green reticle on my 15-22 and has worked well so far. I zeroed at 50 yards and the scope has held zero after 4 trips to the range. The glass isn't as clear as a Bushnell I had on my 10/22 but for the price the UTG isn't bad at all. I have been looking at one of the Bushnell AR optics scopes for 22lr but can't justify it at the moment as I have had no issues with the UTG.

I also have a TRS-25 that I wasn't using so I put that on an offset mount and zeroed at 15 yards. It's on a QD mount and throw it on when I feel like using it.
