UTG SWAT scope with built in level
« on: May 01, 2017, 03:45:33 AM »
UTG has released their new scope with a built in level (SCP3-UG4165AOIEWB). Pyramyd has them (≈$225) for sale through Amazon. I bought mine from an importer allowing me to get it sooner, but not cheaper. I have a few comments.

As with all UTG scope with their "built in sun shade".... It is a joke! I use a thin plastic mailing tube (≈8 inches long), slipped over the outside of the scope (2 inch ID), sprayed flat black inside and out. That solved the issue. However, even with the addition, there are times when shooting towards the sun where the level causes an aberration in the field of view—call it a glint. Without the home brew sun shade, the issue is worse. The scope sells for about $100 more than the identical scope without the level. And speaking of which, the internal level's accuracy depends on how good a mounting job you did. Do a poor job, and you'll still have cant. For me, I prefer a rail mounted level, and not one on or in the scope. Your milage may vary.

I haven't found a UTG scope I liked at all so no worries about me buying that one.  Makes snese about the level in the scope though.
