I just got this a few days ago and I am really thrilled with it so far!

It's the KASPA series model number 849820

cheaper than dirt has them for $200

or at SWFA

SERIOUSLY nice glass - very clear and sharp.

Tactical turrets with nice clicks and no slop.

Side focus (very smooth) - and I was amazed to find this scope focused right down to 8 yds on X12 magnification
with absolutely no optical distortion or fuzziness.

At 55 yds a 1" kill zone is also perfectly sharp and in focus.

Glass etched fine reticule - Christmas tree style which also illuminates in red for those hard to see black on black kill zones.

It's almost half the size and weight of my Hawke Eclipse SF 30mm which I was previously using.

The Weaver is $206 on sale at the Sportsmansquide with free shipping. So if you are in the market for a dedicated Hunter x12 power scope I highly recommend this one + you get a lifetime warranty from Weaver.

When I get a chance I'll post some pics of it on my Whiscombe and through the lens at some near and far targets.

Compared to the VORTEX x10 power scope at $300 or Vector Optics (Viper) ones from the UK also in the $300 - $400 range this scope is one heck of a bargain.

Continued safe shooting.

James
