Hey guys and gals I have recently gotten myself a sniper but can't decided what scope to get and it seems that the prices of scopes jump from around 50 to over 100 so is there any scopes you would recommend?

Thanks in advance.
I'm now in love with Finnius for helping me find my stock

Splash the cash and get a decent Leapers, or a Leupold replica, King Arms go the Leupold replica's and Leapers do their own scopes. They're sometimes branded as UTG.

ehobby do a nice selection of scopes

King Arms M1/M3 scopes are the Leupold's I'm referring to, ehobby does them but don't have any in stock right now.

But bear in mind there's not much point buying a 70 scope for a 100 rifle, you're not getting the full use out of the scope. What rifle are you using it on?
Ask me about general tech problems, I'm happy to help most of the time ;) I'm decent with AEGs, but my speciality is snipers, that being AEG, spring and gas. I'm quite good with GBBR systems too, WA especially.

Ask me about your Tanaka/KJW bolt action problems!
Here's a link to my M40 takedown guide, works for M700's too!

Does it come with a pair of sunglasses?

If the guy was unarmed and you ended up putting him in a blender you'll get in trouble.

just a quick summary so that i dont write this out for te 3rd time :P

Get the largest you feel comfortable using, the larger the front lense diameter the more light comes into the scope, so the better the image and the wider an area you can see - vital in combat.
3-9 times zoom is fine
I own a 4-16 purely because it is bigger
make sure it fits your rifle.
adjusatable paralax is a MUST for the rifle scope

I use and like mil-dot reticles, but others are available, just see what you like and buy that.

any questions feel free to ask me on here.

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.


Resident Patrol Base Techy, any questions about PB, message me and I'll do my best to answer.
