New Leapers UTG 4-16X56 Scope Announced.

Leapers has announced that their UTG 4-16X56 scope line has just been updated with the addition of a G4 or German no. 4 Dot etched glass reticle version.

The 30mm tube Mil Dot reticle version – SCP3-4165AOIEW – remains available, but it has been joined by this new scope with the product code SCP3-UG4165G4.

The floating dot is the only portion of the G4 Dot reticle that illuminates and assists aiming under different light conditions. The Illumination Enhancing (IE) System provides either red/green or any color from the 36 color to accommodate any light situation.

In an era of increasingly-complex reticle designs, some air rifle shooters still favor the simplicity of the G4 Dot reticle for its clean, straight-to-the-point crosshair. They say that it helps the eye quickly locate the center of the reticle for an immediate focus and acquisition on the target.

Like all other UTG scopes, the Leapers UTG 4-16X56 scope is built on Leapers True Strength Platform that resists the heavy forward and reverse recoil of magnum spring air rifles. Leapers say that the 30mm diameter tube is completely sealed and nitrogen filled, making it shock-proof, fog-proof, and rain-proof.

Further suitability for air rifle use is provided by the Side Wheel Adjustable Turret (SWAT)  focusing system. This provides parallax adjustment from 10 yards to infinity. Leapers also offers an optional big wheel for precise control of the side parallax adjustment, if required by the shooter.

There are also premium zero lockable and resettable windage/elevation target turrets. Leapers say that further aiming precision is offered by the very fine turret adjustment of just 1/8 MOA per click.

The manufacturer tells us that the updated Leapers UTG 4-16X56 scope features emerald lens coatings. This coating is intended to achieve maximum light transmission for best image clarity.

The new Leapers UTG 4-16X56 scope includes bonus flip-open lens caps and high profile Max Strength Picatinny/Weaver rings. If your air rifle has conventional airgun rails for scope mounting, Leapers has a wide range of suitable rings and mounts that will fit this scope.

The scope has the product code SCP3-UG4165G4 and has an MSRP of $249.97. To find out more, check out
