Leapers Announces New 3-12 x 32 Bugbuster Scope.

Leapers, Inc. has announced a new compact scope. This is the 3-12 x 32 Bugbuster.

This new scope offers the largest magnification range of any Bugbuster model, from 3 power up to 12 power. It’s based on the common 1-inch diameter tube size.

Like all other Bugbusters, the 3-12 x 32 Bugbuster scope has parallax adjustment for sharp focusing down to 3 Yards. However, it combines this with side wheel adjustment . This is the first time that side AO has been available in the Bugbuster series.

The 3-12 x 32 Bugbuster scope is compatible with the UTG SWAT Big Wheel (Leapers product code SCP-SW080BB). This accessory allows the side AO to be adjusted more easily and smoothly than is posible with front AO. It also can be used for precise scope ranging if you make a side wheel tape for your own specific air rifle and pellets.

Greg Shirhall described how to make and use a sidewheel tape in this article. Although he was using it for Field target Competition, it’s equally useful to airgun hunters who also need precise pellet placement on the target.

The 3-12 x 32 Bugbuster scope includes all the usual features we expect from Leapers…

It includes a mil dot reticle, vital for holdover when shooting air rifles. And it also includes Leapers’ True Strength (TS) platform, which means that it will resist the forward recoil of powerful spring/piston and gas ram air rifles.

The turrets of the 3-12 x 32 Bugbuster scope are zero-lockable and resettable. They operate without tools or removing covers (which can then sometimes get lost).

As with all Leapers scopes, the 3-12 x 32 Bugbuster scope is bundled with a range of accessories. These include flip-open lens caps, a 2-Inch long sunshade and Medium Profile Picatinny/Weaver rings with quick detachable locking levers.

The Leapers product code for the 3-12 x 32 Bugbuster scope is SCP-M312AOWQ.
