Leapers Rifle Scopes Reviewed And Best Deal Locator
The leapers rifle scopes brand is one of the rifle scope worlds hidden gems. Possibly due to the cheap price (just over budget level) most hunters looking for a new rifle scope pass them by while heading towards a multi hundred $ purchase
In this article I am going to specifically evaluate the Leapers Rifle Scopes 3-9×50 and 3-9×40 mil dot models and tell you how to get a good deal on one right after you finish reading.
Leapers Scope Review: 3-9×50 and 3-9×40 5th Gen Full Size AO RGB Mil Dot Models
If you don’t understand what those numbers mean by the way then I’ll briefly explain.
3-9 means the range of magnification levels the scope has. The 3 means 3x magnification and the 9 means 9 times, when termed 3-9 it means that the scope can be adjusted from 3-9x magnification, so 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 7x, 8x and 9x. You d this simply by hand turning a dial on the scope body to change the level of magnification.
On the Leapers 3-9x variable is nice and wide and will suit you for shooting any where from about 5 to 500 yards.
Some cheap rifles scopes with large magnification options offer less than ideal image clarify in their higher ranges due to the use of cheaper, lower grade optical lenses. In the case of the Leapers 5th Gen range this is not a concern as I explain below.
Leapers Optics Lenses
The Leapers optics lenses are well known for their high quality, ground as they are at the highest camera grade A, quality level so you know you will get excellent vision. No low grade lens vision problems at high magnification.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best semi auto .22 rifle/scope combo under 0?
i have a bolt action now with open sights but i want a semi auto with a good scope so i can hammer those rabbits from super far away. so whats the best rifle/scope combo you have found and why?
Ok, more or less here are your semi auto options for under 0 (so you have money for an optic).
All prices are based on doing some internet research and are approximate:
Ruger 10/22 Carbine – 0
Remington 597 – 0
Marlin 795 – 5
Marlin 60 – 5
Savage 64 – 0
Mossberg 702 Plinkster – 0
All of these are the prices for synthetic stock either blue or stainless versions. All of these are comparable products. So, for me from a features standpoint the 10/22 and the 597 both have flush mount 10 round magazines. The 597 has a last shot hold open which is an extremely nice feature in a .22. The 795, 64 and 702 are all single stack 10 round magazine rifles, all of which have the last shot hold open. The 10/22 and the 597 you can get higher capcity mags on.
For me the combination of these would point to the 597. Now, from an accuracy standpoint all of these guns have strong advocates. Given the variety of .22LR ammunition that is out there, any of these can be quite accurate rifles. Personally, I’d probably pick which ever you like the look of best.
Now from an optic standpoint, if you are really looking to wring the rifle out and reach out to get the bunnies I would expect you would want something like a 3×9 or 4×12 variable. Also I’d be inclined to say I’d look for at least a 32 and more likely a 40mm lens.
So, in the 3-9×40 or 4-12×40 and call it 0 – 0 I happen to like the options from:
Leapers, Hawke and Bushnell and have them on some of my guns. Bushnell is a little higher in price compared to the others, I think their “eyebox” is a little bigger than the Hawke optic I have which is part of the design, but any of these will wring out the gun. In particular, I pick optics that allow me to adjust parallax down to very short ranges. Because the focus at 100 yards and the focus at 10 yards isn’t the same. So, I intentionally sort through and pick scopes that are parallax adjustable to 10 yards or less. Many cheaper .22 scopes will be fixed parallax at 50 or 100 yards.
So, after all that what would I suggest?
Remington 597, Bushnell Trophy 4-12×40, and Leapers Medium or high profile scope rings.
If you are careful, you should be able to get into that for right around 0. Swap out the optic for the Leapers 3-12×40 AO Mil-dot RGB Zero optic and you definitely can.
what is the best .22 rifle scope under ?
i am getting a marlin model 60 for christmas and i want to buy a good hunting scope. i will mainly be shooting birds, foxes, racoons, oppousms, squirrels, chipmunks, and small game that i see around my yard, so the scope needs to be for small game any suggestions or personal preferences thanks
Try the sporting goods section of your local Wal-Mart. They usually have a couple of cheap scopes for under . That’s where I got one of mine!

What is the best kind of rifle scope for 22 cal. LR? Can I find a good scope for 150 $?
Most rifles don`t come with scope, and I`m not sure what is the criteria for choosing the best for my rifle. Will every kind of scope fit on the rifle? What is the best tech. specifications for a scope used in 547 Remington bolt-action for example?
I am a firm believer of high powered scopes on a good .22
I have a first year Remington Model 541-s and I chose Redfield widefield in 4 x first. Years later I discovered a 6X widefield with a 1 inch dot. I have found this to be better than 4X . My dot subtends 1/2 inch at 50 yards and 1/4 inch at 25. If you are considering the 547 I would look at a Leupold 6X 42 mm objective. It is a beauty of a scope and would do justice to the fine 547. It is possible to have paralax problems since most high powered scopes are set for 100 yards. I know it exists but have never had a problem with mine.
What is the best 0.22 air rifle to buy and the best scope to go with it?
It has to be a 0.22.
It doesn’t matter what it is powered by.
type this into google and check it out Weihrauch HW80 Air Rifle. its .22 calibre, spring powered to the legal limit. if you put a more powerfull spring in it you will need a class 1 firearms licence for it to still be legal to own. you will find it to be one of the heaviest air rifles around but it is also one of the best.
weirauch have tried to improve on it by bringing out lighter and prettier models but none can match the hw80 for power and accuracy. brilliant value for money about £150 – £180 depending where you go.
as for scopes it all depends on your budget this rifle is good enough for the best scopes money can buy, mainly designed for bullet rifles. i got a big fat camo hunting scope with laser and night vision but started out with basic 4 x 40′s costing about 30 quid.
i hate gas powered rifles, nothing beats running out of gas on a long shoot..
if you want to increase the power of this rifle use a square section ox-spring replacement.
good advantage to this type of spring is that you can leave it cocked for hours on end and the spring will never weaken.
