Genuine Leapers sourced direct from Leapers. NOT a cheap clone. There are many low price Leapers copy scopes from far east direct sellers and even UK sellers who should know better on eBay. If the price is too good to be true then it IS too good to be true. Copy scopes are built on inferior scope blanks (Not Leapers super tough True Strength) and use low grade optics in place of the grade A Leapers use. I Guarantee this is a genuine Leapers scope, a fact you can verify when you get it if you check the serial number with Leapers customer support.
Red-Green illuminated 9 dot mil dot cross-hairs
A great help in low light, bright light, strange light! Allsorts of applications for different prey and targets in all ranges of lights and against different backgrounds and terrain.
Illumination comes into its own when shooting targets that are either naturally dark or made dark by light conditions such as shadow, dawn dusk, very bright light or night shooting with lamps or night vision kit.
Without Illumination a black reticle can be very hard to make out against the target. Illumination fixes this problem and gives immediate contrast. Adjust intensity according to the light conditions.
When not needed you just have it turned off and use regular black cross-hairs.
Adjust illumination by side turret -
The Mil-Dot Reticule was developed by US Marine snipers in the 70s to improve range estimation. It is now the most popular fieldsports crosshair about.
Wide field of view and edge to edge lens clarity makes this a true hunting scope, you'll be able to pick up quarry on the peripheral edge of the sight picture.
The innovatively designed Leapers Mil Dot reticle has improved upon the standard mil dot by giving you more reference points for quick range estimation during shooting.
32mm Fully Multi Coated Lens:
- An excellent medium lens size.
- Excellent light capture coupled with fast target acquisition and moving target tracking.
- Great for all light conditions especially good in lower light.
- Multi layer coating gives excellent light transmission and clarity of vision while limiting glare and reflection
- Adjust to any number between 3 and 9x magnification.
- Ideal all round variable magnification
- Focus from 3 yards at 3x
- Very Easy and very fast dial adjustment.
- Exceptional close range focus clarity
Finger Click Adjust Lock and Reset Windage and Elevation Turrets:
Windage/elevation target turret with center hex screw to control zero locking, zeroing and zero resetting functions
Easy, fast adjust 1/4 MOA
- Windage and elevation is how you set the scope so that your shot falls where the cross-hair says it will.
- Set it up (instructions supplied) and put the protective caps back on so that your settings stay in place.
AO Parallax Explained
Targets will often "seem" to drift or wobble against their background making locking on them very difficult. This effect is known as parallax and it can cause problems even at just a few yards with small prey head shots or target shooting etc.
Scopes such as this have Parallax adjustment which basically means you are able to adjust the scope using AO (Adjustable Objective i.e,. front lens cover) to factor it out of the equation and give you rock solid target lock on and around the distances on the turret.
The effect varies in intensity and effect at different ranges so the scope features a range of adjustment settings.
Important note on parallax focus versus regular ocular focus
A common mistake is to use the parallax adjustment in an attempt to focus the reticle. The ocular end (eye piece) has a focus for the reticle. That is the sole purpose of the ocular focus. Returns have been caused by users attempting to use the reticle focus as an image focus and or using the parallax adjustment as a reticle focus. If you get both of them so far out of whack bad things will happen.
Only use the ocular focus to focus the reticle and only focus the reticle while looking through the scope at the sky. This will keep you from trying to focus an object instead of the reticle.
Ocular Focus (eyepiece) adjusts the scope to the individual shooter's eye... this is a one time adjustment. (For wearers of prescription lenses this could be a multiple procedure event if new prescription arrive.) The purpose of this adjustment is to adjust the scope so that the image of the reticle (crosshairs) is properly aligned with the back of the shooters eye.
Parallax focus adjusts the target to the reticle (crosshair). The target image and the reticle must be on the same focal plane within the scope or there is room for apparent movement of the reticle on the target when the shooters eye moves (or is positioned differently at the scope).
Leapers True Strength Platform = Mega strong recoil proof scopes
Leapers have designed an ultra strong 1 piece scope basically.
Using what they call smart spherical structure (SSS) to achieve simplified and strengthened inner/outer tube interaction for exceptionally precise and responsive W/E adjustment and super tough resistance against a lifetime of recoil.

Dealer test results
Air rifle kick - spring air rifles, unlike firearms, kick both ways and harder forwards. This 2 way snap can be fatal for scopes. The hardest recoil springer in the business is Webley's Patriot (AKA the Kodiak) which is known to bruise shoulders if held too loose or a headache if held too tight!
This scope was tested with 750 shots of the heaviest pellets which were measured at 30lbs/foot in pressure and the scope passed with no problems at all.
Firearms/hunting rifle tests - A .416 Rigby (AKA the "Scope Killer") which has a huge recoil was used on the 3-9x40 and 3-9x50. 350 shots fired and scopes inspected immediately afterwards. Dealer comments: Performed well. Grouping excellent. Optical clarity excellent in a high humidity and temperature environment. Adjustment tracking or point of impact remain reliable.
Battery for IR function is NOT INCLUDED. Unfortunately due to very strict new rules on battery transport Leapers were unable to find a way to bulk ship the scopes to us with the batteries. So these must be purchased separately. They are standard mass market CR1620 camera/watch types that can be bought cheap in many places.
