Those of you that have not looked Leapers UTG makes several scopes for handguns.

I just purchased one of these scopes for my 350 Legend AR and was quite surprised with the quality.

I my look at these to replace the Bushnell Trophy's in the future.

They also have some nice rings at a very reasonable price.

I've been hunting with scoped handguns for at least 25, if not 30yrs. At last count, 19 handguns with optics, with an even split between scopes and red dots. I have several scopes that are floaters and only used for testing. A revolver is usually considered a 100yd gun. As such, I find no utility in a big variable on a revolver. I've had a Burris 2-7x for probably 15yrs or more. It started on my SRH .480 and have yet to find a permanent home for it. The parallax issues at 50-70yds at 7x are terrible. For me, a red dot, fixed 2x or at most a 1-4x is perfect. The 2-7x's and 2.5-8x's belong on specialty pistols.

I have 2-7X Burris scopes both old and new, a 4X Leopold, a Simmons, as well as UltraDot/MatchDot Red Dot Sights. I also have multiple Weaver Classic Extreme Rifle scopes on my Encore barrels. (Way to big for a revolver)

I have always used a 30mm UltraDot on my 480 Ruger Super RedHawk. Ruger will normally swap the 1" Rings for 30mm if your rings are still new, and unused. I prefer the Red Dot on my woods revolver. I much prefer a 30mm tube over the 1" also.

One consideration using a scope, make sure you get one that is very Bright and Clear. My older Burris 2-7X scopes are no where near as clear as the new ones I have. I was starting to swap out my older Burris scopes for MatchDots when I broke a Burris and had it replaced with a new one. I now have several more new Burris scopes. I am very impressed with the clarity of the new Burris scopes.

Dang, I looked on eBay yesterday and didn?t find much. Guess I?ll take another look. I might have put in a specific brand, can?t remember. I haven?t bought the gun yet, I?m still vacillating on that. I appreciate the help guys !

I had a Leapers on a .450 Bushmaster AR before I bought a night vision scope for hunting hogs at night. Never had a problem with it. The reticle was a little bright in full darkness but I saw that the one in your link had the option to go with black also. Mine did not. I?ve read that being designed for airguns, they are pretty tough, lifetime warranty too. Food for thought !

One thing to consider some spring air guns are harder on scopes than magnum handguns and rifles.
