Response to Scope advice for Crosman 1720T........

is available from many sources for <$120. And Often in the $90-$100 range if you look around.

The compact version is more suited to pistols and small rifles. The Full length version is more suited to big rifles. I use both versions, on different guns.

In my judgement, the UTG etched glass reticle is slightly too thin, and the wire reticle is slightly too thick. I prefer the wire reticle because the mil-dots are more standard. There are some other subtle advantages to the wire reticle. They are definitely not too thick for the 35 yard shots in FT pistol. And they are even OK for the 55 yards in FT rifle.

I would probably get the etched glass reticle if it were the same configuration as the wire reticle (slightly thicker with standard sized mil-dots). The etched glass type is believed to be more durable. But I have never had a problem with the UTG wire reticles, even on spring guns. So the wire reticle seems durable enough.

But if you are a "clicker", I would NOT recommend either of them.
