    I'm looking for a new scope for my leshiy. I really like the look of the BugBuster but I'm not sure about the build quality? Turret tracking etc…

    Currently I have a SWFA 12x scope on it. But I'm not happy with the eye relief that the SWFA has. 

    Criteria would be:

    Compact stout scope.

    At least a 3×9

    Fine reticle

    Reliable turret tracking

    Paralax 10 yrds to infinity

    Decent eye relief approx 4" So it won't protrude past the end of the gun when it is folded.

    Any recommendations?

    Or am I looking for a "White Whale"?

    Any in put is greatly appreciated!

    The Leupold VX-Freedom 3-9×33 EFR is a lightweight scope and of excellent quality. It would be my first choice. Not certain about the eye relief is all.

    I put a Leupold VX Freedom 3-9×33 EFR on my Leshiy and am able to get good eye relief with the scope just past the point where the gun folds.  It is the perfect size for the Leshiy and the glass is great.  Buuut, it has a duplex reticle (basically a small cross-hair) and the turrets are not made for clicking really.  They do work well though I was able to zero my gun in a few shots.  Overall I am impressed with it and Leupold is known for their quality optics and great warranty.

      If this scope had a mil-dot reticle it would be absolutely perfect IMO.  I would like to get one from the Leupold custom shop with a mil-dot reticle and a target turret for the elevation.

    I know amazon has the bugbuster on sale for 59.98 if you decide on that. I have one on my prod and love it, you cant beat it for the price.

    mmahoney, your post a while back on the Leupold is the reason I got one so thanks again!  Also the reason I know about Leupolds custom shop (someone posted their custom shop EFR in that thread and it looked awesome).  I wish the Dedal/EDgun Stalker wasn't so expensive because it looks great on the Leshiy.  For $700 I want more than 6x though!!!

    I bought a discovery for my taipan and like it. I just realized it has pellet holders (6 each turret) that holds .22 really good and thought this would be great for the leishy.  The model is vt-3 FFP3-12x 44SF for $200. Only downsides are eye relief 3.3-3.5” and its 44mm so maybe too big for the leishy?  I like this scope and wanted something smaller, lighter than everything else I looked at. (10”,18oz). Shipped fast too. Love the recitle.

    HI I only use FFP Mil/Mil scopes and I needed a compact scope for leshiy and I like good glass so my choices became limited

    as most ar type scopes are ballistic reticles or ACSS or others and the parallax isnt clear at close ranges  so I tried alot and I got my self 2 scopes I love and work well for me

    SWFA 1×6 HD mil/mil

    Burris XTR11 1.5×8 34mm mil/mil

    both great for me but both have a few weak points as well

    Id like the SWFA more if it had the mil-quad reticle

    Id like the burris more if it did not bleed when you illuminate it ,

    burris pros is field of view and great glass ,swfa pro is hd glass turrets 100% is sharp and even no bleeding

    price wise the swfa lists for $999 nd the burris xtr11 lists for $1199 you can find better prices anywhere  , I do want to try the dedal when It comes in I have a few other platforms for rthat one as well

    Holly Crap! I'm not that rich! LOL!
    My next big purchase I'm saving my pennies for is the Omega Turbo charger, and a 100 cu/ft Omega tank.

    I'd like to keep the price of a scope reasonable.
    The SWFA is a good scope I like the fact that they are almost indestructible! 
    But the limited eye relief is a huge annoyance for me. But everything else about SWFA is great.

    Once you have a nice reticle like the SWFA it's hard to go back to a thick lined reticle like on the bug buster.

    Im using a small UTG Acushot. I even added a small sidewheel. It works out well for me. I think utg makes a good scope for the money and would say its comparable to some more expensive brands. Dont mind the feet in the pic.

    Yeah, that is a good amount for a scope. For some reason I cannot bring myself to drop that much on optics. $600ish-$700 would be my absolute max. Even then though. Sometimes it can be hard to find exactly what you are looking for in a given price range. 

    As for saving for a compressor. I would do the same but im lucky enough to have AoA just down the road from me so I can take my 100cf tank to get filled.

    I would be careful of the source. Aliexpress. Known for counterfeit products and/or just plain Chinese junk. I would not buy optics from them but thats just me. Go through midway or something if you cannot find what you are looking for at a repeatable airgun dealer. Or even a local sporting goods chain. Bass pro or someplace similar.

    I've had a few scopes on my Leshiy and to be quite honest I think you can go with anything your comfortable with. I have had a heavier 4-16×50 on mine and the added weight actually helps out in my opinion. I've also had a Hawke Airmax 2-7x on it and Leupold 3-9x efr which is currently on it.
