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.
EZ Tap Illumination 36 colour 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.
- EZ Tap is an innovative, low profile illumination control with 2 soft and ergonomic control buttons designed for easy and fast hand/finger operations.
- Circuit and housing design for uninterrupted illumination even under heavy recoil.
- Memory allows quick, easy adjustment to your preferred brightness, rapid switching between red and green illumination, and maintaining brightness last used when changing reticle color or turning light back on.
Picture here shows EZ tap controls. the reticle shown is different to that in this model scope. The 3-9x32 bug buster has a 9 dot wire that extends all the way up and down the reticle bars.
Push both buttons at same time and hold to enter 36 colour reticle mode
Illumination is a very useful feature for low and bright light, It gives you a much better contrast of the target against the crosshairs. Red is the color for low light, indoors etc and green helps in bright conditions.
When not needed you just have it turned off and use regular black cross-hairs.
Leapers 9 dot mil dot

AO Parallax Explained
Parallax effect is the term that describes the difference in angles between objects that are seen up close and those seen far away. When you look at telephone poles passing by on the side of the road, those closest to your car seem to pass very fast, while the ones far away seem to go very slow. That difference is due to the parallax effect.
The reticle in your scope is like a telephone pole that's very close. If you move your head on the stock while watching the target through the scope the reticle may seem to move, wobble or blur against the target. That affects where you perceive the aim point to be, and that affects your accuracy. Parallax focus correction adjustment reduces this phenomenon to the greatest extent possible.
Parallax focus correction therefore is a must for anyone attempting to use either a high magnification scope, shooting drastically different yardages with the same scope or anyone attempting to shoot at extremely close ranges or extremely long ranges. Especially so if it is a combination of these factors.
The effect varies in intensity and effect at different ranges so the scope features a range of adjustment settings adjusted by turning the front lens (Objective) housing

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.
Remember - Mounts to fit it onto a rifle ARE included for 20mm width Picatinny bases
If you need 9-13mm airgun type base you need to buy them in addition, as the Picatinny mounts are supplied in the box and we can't swap them out. See http://www.tacticalscope.co.uk/blog/?p=50 if unsure what you need and further details at bottom of page.
