UTG scopes aren’t in the same league as SWFA products. It isn’t features that you are paying for with expensive glass. Some of the cheapest scopes have the most features. What you pay extra for is glass quality, turret precision and build quality. 

I started with UTG / Leapers scopes like a lot of people as they were cheap and at the time, I could barely get my head around paying $500 for an air rifle. On some of the air rifles I had back then, there was no point in buying anything better but they are a very basic product. I wouldn’t put one on my more expensive air rifles. 

I wouldn’t be able to go back to my UTG scopes after getting used to one of the SWFA products. I have think there are better low cost scopes (although maybe not quite as cheap as a 4-12 SWAT).
