New Leapers 4 x 32AO Airgun Scope Review

The second model in Leapers' expanding new range of UTG airgun scopes is the 4x32AO, Leapers product number SCP-U432AOD.

This Leapers/UTG scope is designed specifically for use with air rifles and checks all the boxes that airgunners want from their scopes:
- It's airgun rated against the forward and reverse recoil generated by spring and gas piston airguns (Leapers True Strength platform).
- It has Adjustable Objective (AO) focusing down to just 5 yards.
- The reticle has Mil Dots for easy, rapid elevation and windage changes.
- And it's supplied complete with a pair of strong rings that mount onto airgun dovetails.

Leapers claims that this scope is completely sealed and Nitrogen-filled, making it shockproof, fogproof and rainproof. Flip-up front and rear lens covers further protect the lenses from inclement weather.

The turrets are covered with screw caps and - once these are removed - rotate with definite and reassuring clicks without the need for a coin or tool to make the adjustment. The turrets are brass-based, further distinguishing this scope from lower-cost models.

The photograph above shows this new Leapers 4x32AO scope fitted to a Ruger Air Hawk air rifle. As you can see, it fits well!

This scope is an ideal upgrade or replacement for the many low-quality 4x32 scopes bundled with many $100-ish air rifles from Beeman, Ruger, Gamo and Crosman. You'll notice a significant improvement in image quality and usability by using this scope - that all adds up to improved accuracy downrange!

In my opinion, the quality of this scope is very good for the price, with clear, sharp, high contract images visible through the eyepiece. This scope is in stock today at Archer Airguns.

Leapers next airgun scope will be a 3-9x32AO model. Archer Airguns already has a sample of that scope in-house for testing and we'll report on that shortly.
