"Man, I can't believe I stole this at $99!! Dont tell CTD or they will change to the right price, I would expect to pay 200-300 dollars now that I've shot with it! I may change the mounts to ones a little taller."
– Hot Rod Todd
"I received this scope yesterday, attached it to the picitinny carry handle mount. It is sturdy. The scope is so much more than I had expected. I mounted it on my AR15."
"This scope is awsome. I never knew the colors would be so bright, they will be great for dusk/dawn shooting. I put this bad boy on my Mini 14 and its perfect. Great by at $100."
"I almost felt bad only paying what I did for this scope. It blew my expectations out of the water. Absolutely incredible. Clear image great parallax adjustment and it looks freaking sweat. Only negative is it is a bit on the heavy side. Can't beat it for the price. way to go CTD."
"Don't think about buying this, just do it and you will not regret it. Opened the box thinking well I'm sure I'll get what I payed for but it's much more than that. I've got and had really expensive scopes and this blows them away. But really, it is a good one. Mount it to my M4, looks great, feels great, works excellent."
"I bought this scope for my AR that I built and I couldn't be happier. This scope is amazing the clarity is absolutely awesome- granted I personally find the different color lighting pointless but a sweet bonus added to an already great scope comes with a pocket guide for ranging which is great info for beginners using this type of scope I couldn't have spent a better 100 bucks"
"I mounted this scope on my Bushmaster- it took me around 6rds to get zeroed in.I cant believe I was getting 1inch groups at a 100yards with ease,I cant believe that I bought this awesome scope for a LOW price,this is a simple scope to sight in and the clarity is unreal."
"For the money you can't beat this scope. Look, Feel, and Performance are all way beyond what I expected at the price."
"I purchased this scope based on the reviews. I am very pleased. Solid construction, good optics, and a great buy."
"I have bought many scopes over the years for a lot more money that were not as good. Those scopes did not come with scope rings or lens covers either. Mildot reticle has 9 dots in all directions from center, not just 3 or four. Bought a Barska scope for $60 that was ok but had no parallax adjustment, not clear beyond 400 yards. I have another big 56mm scope from Leapers that is also top notch for the money."
"The scope is very nice and the shipping was fast. Everything was exactly as promised. Only small complaint was some very slight paint chipping on the body of the scope. It mounts pretty easy, and zeros well. I would reccomend!"
"I expected an \"ok\" scope by the reviews below. I did not expect it to a great one. After zeroing with 6 shots and putting a couple hundred rounds through my AR-15 it is.still as accurate any scope I have looked through. The best part is letting guys shoot my gun and show amazement in a 100 buck scope, while they are behind their $500+ scopes with less extras."
"I mounted this on my CETME and it is working just fine. Adjusting the illuminated reticle (and remembering to turn it off) took some getting used to. But, if you get it turned off the batteries seem to last quite a while. It helps that it is the same battery my holographic sights on other rifles use too.The sight picture is clear, the reticle is easy to see even without illumination and it has held zero very well. I don't think you could do better for the money. May get another one, just to have a spare - or to mount on my next rifle."
"This scope wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but it is a great scope for the loot. The downfall - it's too big. Takes up my entire top rail and have no room for a back up sight, but mounts great on my M4 and looks like a sniper rifle. Rectile color not seen during the day but awesome at night or low light. I'd recommend this scope if u plan on shooting over 100 yards."
– Tactical medic
"I love this scope. Only recommendation is check and recheck the scope dimensions. I had to move the scope pretty far up the rail because where I liked it was blocking easy access to the charging handle. With that said this scope is great. I can\uFFFDt see getting $100 scope better than this one. Focus is fast and clear, the locking adjustment knobs are my favorite parts of the scope, along with the 30 some odd colors you can choose for the reticle. I recommend this to every budget shooter!"
"Received mine a couple of weeks ago - great looking, bright image, infinitely variable reticle color and parallax adjustable out to as far as you can shoot - everything you could want in a scope and at a very affordable price. I recommend a 1-piece UTG QD mount for this one. While CTD stocks the UTG 1pc QD for 1 inch tubes, it does not stock the 30mm version. I had to search a couple of days, but finally located one from another source. When I received the mount I simply set it on a level table, loose-mounted the scope using a small bubble level and snugged it down. I mounted it on my DoubleStar DSC-4 and tture he cross hairs were perfectly aligned. The only negative is that is no locking ring for the objective focus, but that was not enough of a reason to change my rating of a 4.9....."

"I just purchased a Bushmaster 308 ORC and looked around for a cheap budget scope. I found this one for right at 100 and figured this was the best bet because it's hard to find a compact scope. It was a bit heavy, but that didn't really bother me that much. The gun itself was already substantially heavier than any other rifle I own. I mounted the scope and it definitely passed the eye test. I took it to the range a few times and the thing just would not zero. No matter what adjustments I made, at 100 yards, it would shoot up and to the right. It was probably just a freak accident or malfunction with this scope because I have read some pretty good reviews about it. 1 star for quality, 5 stars for service from CTD. 3 stars overall. Hope this helps future buyers."
"Took a little while to ship, but very happy with the quality. Comes with 2 batteries, always nice to have an extra, but it is also a very common battery you can get anywhere. I have a red dot reflex sight and took me a while to find a battery for it. I put in on my AR15 and it was pretty close to zero from the factory. The resettable zero was easy to use. All the different color reticles are bright and clear. Read reviews of other scopes that lose their zero on changing magnification, not a problem at all with this one. My only complaint. I lost the rear scope cap the first day, it doesn't stay on well at all. It'll fall off just trying to open the cap. I like it, all my buddies like it and can't believe it only cost $100.00."
"Well... Initially I was pretty happy with this scope. Build quality looks good and it seems substantial. After installing and zeroing on my AR I ran a few great groups and 100 yards. The next time I took it out I ran it to 200 yards. Adjusting only the parallax (focus) and magnification. The gun was then shooting low and right. I came back to 100 yards to find that what was once a zero'd gun was now barely shooting on target. Unfortunately I talked one of the other guys I work with into buying this scope for his AR also. His has been trouble since day 1. Never holding zero. To top it off, my Parallax knob has become very stiff and hard to turn. Also, I gotta say, the illumicated reticle is somewhat useless under most conditions. I rarely even turn it on, let alone use the 30 different color combos available. I've bought a lot of UTG gear. Most has been really excellent for the price. Even my $30 red dot is great, but on this one I feel like I got what I paid for. This scope pales in comparison to my Weaver scope."
"Very good product. I'm always impressed with utg products good quality and inexpensive. This scope far exceeded my expectations. Once zeroed in I was hitting spot on every time very.Very good scope for the price."
"Great buy, very happy. Might even buy another for an eventual replacement."
"Comes with rings suitable for my flat-top, a Ruger SR556, I'll get a riser though, to get my cheek comfortable. Stays put and is easy to dial in, the color settings are neat,easy to use. Didn't have any trouble with the reticle moving or the rings getting loose after a few hundred rounds."
– Wyoming shooter
"Put this scope on my .223 AR. Zero was a snap and is a tack driver. Optics are very, very clear and sharp even at 12x, and in low light. The illuminated reticle can't be seen in daylight. When the reticle is lit the front end of scope can be seen, I use mine to hunt and this can be a problem. Overall I am very happy with the scope and highly recommend it."
"Great scope and it comes with two batteries which is awesome. Feels sturdy and the light up reticle is very helpful depending on the target/background/lighting. Only complaint is that the rear lens cover fell off the first day I had it out. Now its lost and I can't find a replacement online. :("
"Well, the product shipped in a hurry which was great. Mounting this scope to my DPMS flat-top .223/5.56 could NOT have been any easier. And not only does it look great, but I can nail quarters at a hundred yards about half the time. Holds zero great. The other night I was trying to adjust my shoulder strap for it and the top mount came loose. My rifle barrel smacked the floor, pretty good too, (left a giant dent in the wood floor that made my wife less than happy), anyway my rifle and my scope were still zeroed perfectly!!! GREAT BUY AND SUPER TOUGH!!!"
"CTD shipped it fast. Awesome. I opened it up and the scope looks great. The glass seemed great considering it was $100. The reticle was cool although outside of green, red, and black was unnecessary. Mounted it to my Bushmaster .308 ORC and it REALLY looked good. Then things went south. Took it out to wear I shoot and long story short, no matter how much I adjusted the elevation and windage, it stayed in the same spot. It might be a defect or it may just be the scope can't handle anything over a .223 recoil wise. I also liked how it was heavy. Most people don't I think. 3 stars seems fair."
"Bought this for my FAL and it works just fine. I have nice rifle scopes that cost more than some rifles, but I didn't want to spend a lot this time. Put this on the FAL and it works great so far. 1/4 MOA adjustments and zero stop comes in handy and works pretty well. Got it zeroed and the zero hasn't changed. Took a bobcat out with it and some coyotes. I saw where someone posted on here that theirs didn't work with their .308, maybe they got a bad one, but so far mine has worked just fine, even after banging it Against my deer stand, shortly after that, I nailed a coyote from 150 yards and it hit the shoulder, right where I was going for."
"Good optics, clear radicle, easy to set zero. recommend riser for the flat top uppers otherwise gets in way of charging handle. zero has stayed for 3000+ rounds. good for beginners."
"I got this scope for my AR chambered in 5.56. Got it sighted in this weekend and it held zero like a champ. I shot all weekend with my gun un-cased, riding in the back seat of my truck and still held zero. Can't go wrong here!"
"I was initially reluctant to order this scope, given its low price tag. What a mistake that was! This is an awesome scope. I have mine mounted on a 5.56 AR-15 I built from the ground up, and it shoots GREAT. The varying degrees of illumination are pretty cool. However, aside from the red, green, and black, I'm not sure of the value of the 32 colors to choose for your reticle? Maybe, if you're a girly girl and you fancy pink crosshairs, then I suppose it's a nice feature. I had it out at the range and a friend had a $400 Nikon on his AR. The Nikon didn't even come close to the quality of this scope, and it was 4x the cost! The Leapers zeroed easily, held its zero, and provided a clean, clear view, with no distortion. Plus, I guess due to its size, the FOV is great and makes target acquisition fairly easy. My cousin loved it so much, he bought one for his Dragunov rifle. One guy commented that heavy recoil is causing his scope to lose zero. Well, I disagree, because my cousin's scope is holding zero on his Dragunov just fine. The only recommendation I will make is to get the QD mount. It makes adjusting the scope for the proper eye relief a breeze, plus it held zero pretty well when I took it off to clean the rifle! This scope, at this price, is fantastic. If I could give it six bullets I would!"

"Was a good scope for the money, was fairly easy to mount and zero in (really liked the locking feature on the windage/elevation knobs). It is a little larger than what I was expecting but that's my fault for not reading the description better, also not really sure what good the 36 iluminations for the crosshairs will do for me. Overall a very good scope for the money."
"This scope is a great buy for those looking to have a functional and reliable scope for considerably less than the top brands are charging for. I have always stuck with brand names like Nikon and Burris as they have great clarity and light transmission. However, after buying the 10 inch verison of this scope and putting it on my new Rock River PDS carbine, I was impressed on the quality of the scope and also the rings and quick mount which came with the package. After laser boresighting, took it to the range and was off bulleye by only 2 inchs high at 100 yrds. Zero in in less than 20 rounds. I then took off this scope to zero in a NV scope. After completing zeroing the ATN Aries NV scope, I remounted this scope and it was still dead on. Nicely done UTG.Great buy for the price."

"I am a firm believer in 'you get what you pay for.' However, I was impressed by the high ratings given by other customers and decided to take the chance. This scope is a great buy for sure. I have a Stag Model 2T with flattop upper and and ARMS 40L flip up iron sight. I purchased the 3/4\" QD riser (ProMag PM066) along with this scope so I could have clearance for the iron sight in the folded position. After bore-sighting to get a rough zero, I was able to get zeroed in at 100yds within 10-15 rounds. I confirmed that the scope maintains its zero across the range of magnifications (from 3x to 12x). I also dismounted the scope while leaving it attached to the riser block, and then reattached it and checked the accuracy. I was surprised at how close it was to zero. I was also pleased with the ability to zero-set the W/E knobs after getting it dialed in to my particular ballistics and range. The locking nuts for the turrets are nice because the W/E knobs are exposed. The illuminated mil-dot reticle is very bright in low light situations, but outdoors on a sunny day it is not visible (or necessary.) Overall, the only reason I gave it a score of 4 bullets instead of 5 was the poor fit of the ocular lens cap. I found it was very easy to dislodge the cap. It even pops off when trying to open the flip-up, and will get knocked off when carrying the gun slung across my back on a 2 point sling. My plan is to use a strong piece of string, such as a paracord core strand, as a tether so that when it does fall off, it doesn't get lost. I would definitely recommend this scope to anyone who has a limited budget for a scope."

"I bought this to put on my FAL. I have high dollar scopes, but I just didn't want to spend over 1k for a scope this time, so I figured I would give this one a try. I have banged this scope against my deer stand pretty hard, but later that day I shot a bobcat and it hit exactly where I was aiming at.With match ammo out in the FAL, I shoot 1/4 to 1/2 MOA at 100yrds all day long and the scope takes all the recoil the FAL gives it.For the money, you can't beat it and I would recommend this scope to anyone who doesn't want to spend a few thousand dollars for a high end scope. It has 1/4 MOA adjustment and it has zero stop. The bobcat I shot with this rifle was shot at dusk. I turned on the illuminated mil dot and didn't have any problems seein my target."

"Just sighted in the scope today. Not bad for a cheap scope. Would have been nice if someone in China could count. It goes from 6 to 8 to 8 to 9 on the up down settings on the side. Also, the clicks on the adj. are not 1/8 or 1/4. They seem to be wherever they want to be. Only reason not a 5 is the rings on the scope bring it right to the rails and you cannot mount a rear flip up sight without buying a riser and moving the scope over the barrel and the receiver on an AR-15."
"I have just put this on my new AR-15 with a 16'' barrel, and it is a tack driver at 100 yards.The optics are very clear and crisp. On 12x power, it is still clear if you use the parallax side turret. Mil-dot works well now, and will work better with more practice. Colors 'o the colors. Well, I don't know why you need 36 of them, but it's there if you need it. The mounts are good and solid.Adjustments have a good 1/4 MOA click to them.The covers are the only down fall of this scope, The back cover falls off by just opining it, but it stays on until you try to open it.For a scope that is this cheap, you can't go wrong on this one."
"Awesome scope. Bought one for my AR, and had it knocking the 10 ring out after only 9 or 10 rounds. I will be buying another one for my AK. I'm a firm believer in \"you get what you pay for,\" especially for things like this, but this scope has well exceeded my expectations. The only gripe I have with it is the rear flip up lens cover tends to come off when you try to open it. Otherwise, it is an excellent buy."

"Fits great with the rings. Mounted on my Bushmaster XM15-ES2. Really good clarity, and the lighted reticle works great. It's also hardier (made of thicker metal) than most other scopes, which is good when you are bounding or doing anything rough.High precision, but the crosshairs are too darn thick. I bought an AR-22 scope that was more accurate. Not because of the scope itself, but because of the crosshair thickness.At 200 yards and extended to 12x magnification, the crosshairs almost completely cover up a 1 foot x 1 foot metal plate. It's ridiculous."
– Aliel The Heretic
"I am supremely impressed with this scope. I mounted it on my 5.56mm AR-15 and have fired about 350 rounds through the rifle since it was installed. It holds a zero perfectly and I am capable of a 1.75 inch shot-group at 100 yards. I love it! The scope is made well. Its construction is like a tank. It's beefy and strong. The turrets move and click well for accurate adjustments. The illuminated reticle is awesome and I get a lot of compliments about it from my friends. It's a neat extra. The scope caps are great, too! I'm also very impressed with the scope rings. They are very strong and have not come loose at all. I highly recommend this scope. There's not too many better ones out there for the price! Buy it; you won't be disappointed."

"I bought this scope for an amazing price here on CTD. I was amazed to get it in only 3 days. Super fast shipping as always with CTD. The scope arrived in perfect condition and was so well built and made so tough, I was surprised it's as cheap as it is! I will buy more for sure. The scope works great. I installed it on my AR-15 and it's shooting small groups at 200 yards. 2.25 inch shot groups to be exact! I'm super impressed with its performance. The scope is solid and so are the scope rings. They lock it down tight! It includes two scope covers that work well too. The illuminated reticle is a super bonus that gets a lot of attention from the buddies. Get this scope and you will be impressed!"

"All that needs to be said is \"Buy it. You'll Love it.\" You can spend more and possibly not be as happy as you would be if you bought this."
"I put one of these on a .22 bull barrel target rife, Mossburg, and was very happy with it in all respects. So, I ordered another for my son's .22, but instead I put it on my .50 Beowulf and was stunned. It was easy to zero in, and keep on target. I put over 200 rounds through it and it is still right on. Amazing for such an inexpensive scope (this is a 400 gr bullet with 48 gr of powder, a velocity of near 2000 ft/sec, a recoil near a 12 gauge slug)."
"I was like several others here. I read all these rave reviews but I was still concerned about the name and the price. But, I needed a better scope for my Sig Sauer M400 SRP. After reading and rereading these reviews, I decided to take the plunge.Glad I did. The optics are very clear, adjustments are great. You don't need to unscrew caps to dial it in. Both W/E and Reticle knobs have large lettering and arrows. The Reticle knob on mine is a bit stiff, so I've already ordered the SWAT big wheels for it. I mounted it at home without a boresight, but it still dialed in pretty quicklyI've only had it out once to sight it in, but that process was pretty quick. My range time that day was limited. All total I was able to fire only about 75 rounds that day, and from only 50 yards. Shot groups were consistently pretty tight (3/8\") sitting at a flimsy card table in 15 mph gusts using my bipod with cheap ammo (Federal 55 grain bulk .223). So far the included rings have held tight, but I think I'm going to change them out for some taller ones so I can access my charging handle better. Also the front lens cap just rubs against the handguard as it closes. It doesn't keep the cap from closing, so I'm not going to worry about it. If anything, the friction will help keep the cap closed.Also, I read reports on here about the rear lens cap coming off. Mine is attached ok. The cap has a hinge pin, and the mount on the ring side of the cap is where the problem seems to lie as it's a little wider than necessary, allowing it to wobble somewhat. Questionable whether or not it will stay attached, but hey, they have to make compromises on a $99.00 scope. I'm happy those compromises are in the lens cap and not anywhere else. So far no issues with it and I've had the cap off a few times to adjust the focus. No issues otherwise.Crosshairs were crisp. Illumination on a bright day was somewhat washed out, but the optics allowed so much light down the 30mm tube, on those days you don't need il...."

"After a lot of research and review reading, purchased this scope for my Yugo 59/66 SKS. Will be purchasing another soon for my father's older Remington .243. Couldn't ask for a better scope for the price. Optics are crystal clear and the illumination is far more than I expected. Will recommend to any one. Can't wait to get to the range."
"Was not sure how good it would be, but it's awesome. Optics clear, cross hairs show up well, colors are cool, green or red is all I need but have other options. Adjustments lock so no worries. Made very well, but just a little heavy. Scope rings are heavy duty and hold zero very, very well. Sighted it in, removed it from the gun, fired some bullets, put it back on, fired some more bullets, and it was still on zero. If I could send a picture, you could see for yourself. At 75 yards, I held inside a inch and a half circle. Glad I bought this one. Very pleased. Get the side wheel, as it just makes it a little better adjusting yardage. Wish it was just a bit smaller, but this is a 44mm scope."

"Buy This Scope if you want, Clear Optics, Great Focus Availability, and Sight in Stays Dead On! A+"
"I was suspect of \"cheap\" optics. I have tried every dot, prsm and scope under $600 and I always went back to a scope. CTD did not have the 3-12x44 in the local store so I picked up a 1-4X24 to test while this one was in transit from an online order. I tested it on my Panther Oracle 7.52 NATO. After 10 rounds to get it zero'd in it held zero for another 200 rounds with ease. About that time this one arrived so I installed it and headed to the range. Zero\uFFFDd it in and so far after 300 rounds it is still on. I purchased another 3-12x44 for my Panther Oracle 5.56. It took 5 rounds to get it zero'd in and so far for the first 100 rounds she is good to go. The only complaint is both scopes have the same issue where the rear cover comes off pretty easy when trying to flip it open. This cost them the 5th star but I will deal with that later. For the money and features this scope cannot be beaten. Is it a Leupold or Redfield? No but the optics are clear and it does the job at least so far at 25, 50 and 100 yards on indoor and outdoor ranges in my area. Now I am good to go on both rifles. Besides that other vendors do not have an illuminated reticle on scopes until about $400 and even then it is just something like CenterFire."
"This scope is much better than I expected,very clear,great quality, I haven't sighted it in yet, but if it holds zero I would have no problem buying more. The only problem I have is the high shipping charges."
"Nice scope, well worth the money. Thanks! CTD."
"Mounted right to my DPMS and had my zero in less than 10 rounds. UPs: clear optics, easy to mount, easy to zero, You don't find this quality for this price often. Downs: rear lens cover likes to pop off when you open it, mounts a little low on my AR. The front lens cover rests hard on the hand guard, I plan on replacing the hand guard any way.Buy this! You won't be disappointed!"

"My first review was 8-1-2011 at 5 stars. I will have to drop 1 star now 3 years later. Its been on a PSL rifle chambered in 7.62 x 54R and has finally succumbed to the recoil. The tube has cracked and it no longer focuses. On a less powerful rifle it will probably last longer, an AR or an AK. I bought it at $100 then so I cant complain much. Still a good scope for the money."

"Darn good scope for the price, I will be ordering another."

"I bought this scope back in 2012 and mounted it on my AR15. Initial experience was good and the next two trips to the range confirmed the first. I put the rifle w/scope in the safe and didn't touch it for over a year. I took it to the range yesterday (6/7) and after the 2nd 5 shot group the windage and elevation knobs would not adjust the impact point and it will no longer hold a group. Shots are randomly scattered across the target at 100yds. I Hope the warranty will be honored."
"I received my scope on 6/4/16 and mounted it on my AR15 and it looks and feels great. The optics are great and the adjustments are easy to make. This is a steal at the price and have already recommended it to some of my shooting friends."
"I bought this scope hoping it was a diamond in the rough like I had read in some past reviews. IT IS! I put it on, no bore laser, no nothing and hit bulls eye from 100 yds. Took it out a second time and was still hitting dead on. I love this thing. Feels super sturdy, having the dust covers on it already was a great added bonus. I had to put different mounts on my AR because of what a low profile it is however, the UTG mounts that come with it are sturdy as hell too. I put those on my wife's AR."
"The Leapers UTG 3-12x44 Compact Accushot (hereafter called UTG Accushot) just may be the perfect scope for my American made PTR-91K, a clone of the HK-91. It is a robustly made scope with a 44mm Objective lens, 3-12 zoom magnification, the ability to manually focus from a distance as close as 10-yards all the way out to Infinity plus it has an illuminated reticle of the Mil-Dot variety which shows up in plain Black, when not turned on, and displays itself in Red, Green and a bunch of other colo"
