New Scope for Handguns from Leapers UTG

leapers1

Although many people tend to think of rifles and shotguns when it comes to the weapons of choice for hunting, it’s handguns currently gaining significant traction among hunters. In the right caliber a handgun is a fantastic option for everything from feral hogs to various deer, and then some. Of course, hunting with a handgun also means aftermarket additions become a necessity, specifically a scope. A good hunting scope for your handgun isn’t just a fun thing to try, it’s often a must. Now there is a new handgun scope out there made with hunters in mind: the SCP-1254PRGW by Leapers UTG.

The SCP-1254PRGW is designed for use on handguns capable of serious power such as the magnum revolvers many hunters favor. It’s a 1.25-4x32X scope weighing in at 14 ounces with an eye relief of 26 to14 inches. Eye relief is, of course, dependent on the arm length of the individual shooter. The scope has a wire duplex reticle which can be illuminated in red or green or used in standard black. And because Leapers UTG understands the need for a hunting scope to withstand the elements, this scope is designed to be shockproof, fogproof, and rainproof.

From Leapers UTG:

“Parallax is optimally preset at 35 yards with windage/elevation adjustment featuring ½” click values at 100 yards. High quality lens caps, batteries, and medium profile 1″ Weaver/Picatinny rings are included for you to get started right out of the box.”

    Oh wow, more garbage from Leapers. From someone who made the mistake of purchasing Leapers stuff in the past, you’re better off using iron sights than a Leapers scope.
