Review of the Bushnell AR Optics 1x Scope


If you want a powerful and reliable scope on a budget, this is the way to go. There are a lot of scopes out there for this basic price range, but it is hard to find a scope of this quality without adding some serious cash.

The main reason we think it is a very scope is because it is made for the outdoors, in any sort of condition that you want to use it in. The casing is terrifically strong, and is waterproof and fogproof as well as shockproof. You can tell that just by looking at it and feeling the multiple layers of coating. It does have some discoloration at the brightest setting when using it indoors, but as you should have no reason to need the brightest setting indoors, this won’t be an issue.


A Review of the Leapers AccuShot 1-4.5 x 28 30mm Mil-Dot CQB Scope

accusshot Leapers

So, the AccuShot Leapers is a good scope to use. There are a couple of issues, which we’ll get to in the review part of this, well, review. First, let’s talk about what this scope has for features, and we were actually really impressed by how much you get for your buck on the Accushot Mil-Dot. Let’s go over the features list.


accusshot Leapers


  • This scope has a casing that is fogproof, shockproof and waterproof. It also has an angled edge integrated into it for shade and reduction of glare. It also includes QD low profile rings and lens caps that you won’t lose because they flip open.
  • Lenses are emerald coated, and the reticle is etched rather than projected.
  • The parallax is preset at 100 yards
  • The target turrets are zero locking and resetting with ½ MOA per click adjustments for windage and elevation so you can be precise and consistent.
  • Illumination enhancing system that isn’t available anywhere else. Dual-color and 36-color modes for any weather and any light you want to shoot in, and it only takes one click to reset it to the last setting used.
  • 1-4.5x 28, 30mm Magnification


Review of the AccuShot Leapers 1-4.5 x 28 30mm Mil-Dot CQB Scope

UTG is a great company to buy from, and have been very helpful answering questions about scopes in the past. This particular scope is very sharp, with great glass and the Mil-Dot is a major improvement over the circle with the red dot on another AccuShot scopes. There are a couple of issues that we saw, but all in all the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. Here they are for your perusal.



  • The turret reading will lock at zero so that it doesn’t move around and you can set it facing you.
  • Great eye relief with just about extension level.
  • Controls for the reticle lighting are perfectly situated and work just right.
  • A heavy duty scope that we can tell is made to last and would still be usable after a major fall.
  • The reticle illumination is simply terrific. Most of the levels are brighter than we have seen in other scopes and that happens even in daylight, but especially great at night.
  • Very small, precision crosshairs that make it easy to hit your shot.
  • On 1x settings, the target is acquired extremely fast.
  • Has flip lens cap covers that aren’t going to break off easily (unlike some we’ve seen)


accusshot Leapers 2



  • The Mils are a bit off. The formula that they  use if flawed, but honestly, it is hard to do true mils at 5x , and they had to use something, but it would have been better to make the math easier to do.
  • There isn’t a manual at all. Even if you go online, and try to find out more about this scope, you’re out of luck. Still, what you’re getting for the price is pretty amazing.

CVLIFE Optics Hunting Rifle Scope With Red & Green Illuminated Crosshairs Review

CVLIFE Optics Hunting Rifle Scope4

It is actually pretty amazing how many features you get on the CvLife Optics Scope, but there are some disadvantages as well. Let’s start with some of the great things about the scope, because there are quite a few things to like about this one and the fact that it comes with free mounts and is priced very low are just a couple of them.

Advantages of the CVLIFE Optics Hunting Rifle Scope


First of all, this scope specifications list the magnification at 6-24X and the lens has an objective diameter of 50 millimeters. It has red and green illuminated crosshairs, with an AOE. It also comes with free mounts, which is remarkable considering how little this scope costs. The field of view is 28 feet at a hundred yards and it has an eighth of an inch click value at 100 yards. Both the red and green are illuminated.


The scope does a great job with the red and green illumination feature. The cross hairs are bright and can be seen clearly and it has parallax and elevation controls so that you don’t have to take the time to adjust those settings with tools. While it has fairly simply construction, the scope is sturdy and well-made.  The color selection for the cross hairs is definitely one of the best features, because it can be seen over almost any backdrop. However, like any battery operated illuminated cross hairs, if the battery goes out during a competition or there is another power failure of some kind, you lose the scope completely.


CVLIFE Optics Hunting Rifle Scope With Red & Green Illuminated Crosshairs


Some of the Disadvantages of This Scope

While you can’t really complain too much about minor issues due to the price, there can sometimes be a problem when you start to move past the base magnification of 6X. At 6X the field of vision is very clear and sharp, but when you zoom in, most of the field of view becomes distorted. This is obviously a major problem if you were relying on the scope for any magnification beyond the base. It is still usable but the distortion makes it very difficult to see clearly.


Overall Recommendation: This is a terrific scope for the price, and even if you have some distortion when zooming, you still can’t beat it for features and illumination.


  • Approximate Weight: 1.5 Pounds
  • Magnification Range: 6 to 24 X
  • Objective Diameter: 50 millimeters
  • Field of View: 28 feet/100 Yards
  • Click Value: 1/8 inch/100 Yards
  • Illumination Colors: Red & Green

Mueller Speed Shot Rifle Scope Review

Mueller Speed Shot Scope

The Mueller Speed Shot Rifle Scope is one of the best short to medium range scopes on the market and the price can’t be beat for the quality that you get. One of the big selling points of this scope is that it has an etched reticle instead of one powered by batteries, so you aren’t going to lose the use of your scope at a critical moment, such as in the middle of a competition or right at the moment when your prey darts into view.

This new speed shot scope features a terrific illumination system with eleven brightness settings that is designed to be seen even during daylight hours, which you can decide to use or not and there is very little tube glow. The field of view is very wide through this scope and the combined features that you get for the price is actually quite impressive, considering that similar scopes sell for 3-4 times the cost of this optic.


It is perfectly named because it has been designed for speed shots where you need to have the scope up to your eye and shoot a fast-moving target, or shoot very quickly at a slow moving target such as for bear hunting. Besides bear hunting, this scope is perfect for close-range squirrel hunting, turkeys and hogs, or really any fast moving, medium to close range prey.


The disadvantages of this scope include the fact that it is quite heavy, just over 17 ounces, and when you don’t use the illumination, you have a really hard time seeing the dot on black objects – because the dot is itself black.

Here are the specifications of the Mueller Speed Shot Scope.


  • Click Adjustment
  • Turret Exposure: No Exposure
  • Adjustment Value: ½ MOA
  • Tube Diameter: 30 millimeters
  • Turret Height: Medium
  • Turret Adjustments: Finger Adjustable
  • Warranty Provided: Limited Lifetime Warranty
  • Power Range: 1 to 4 X
  • Reticle Type: Glass Etched
  • Reticle Size: 4 MOA (dot)
  • Battery Required: CR2032 (Illumination mode)
  • Matt Finish
  • Objective Diameter: 30 millimeters
  • Ocular Diameter: 45 millimeters
  • Eye Relief: 3.5 inches
  • Included Rings: No
  • Included Sunshade: No
  • Lens Cover: Included
