4x16x40 with the ir moved closer to the power dial. I remember the older ones being pretty dam gd for the money.

Have used on Henry 22LR, and my Sumatra 2500. Good clarity, range out to 100+yards, no complaints and no problelms.

The clicks aren't quite as crisp as I'd like but the AO dial isn't stiff and the sight picture is clear even at max power. Haven't put it on a springer to see how well it holds but I've had good luck with CP for almost 10 years

The silly but still functional TAG reticle......

I actually prefer the mid dot reticle of my old 4-16x40 CenterPoint but for the price my CP is pretty good. I'm currently using a 4-12x50 Hawke Airmax scope on my HW95 but I'm not sure that it was worth 2 1/2 times the cost of the CenterPoint except for the excellent customer service I got from a previous malfunctioning Hawke AirMax.

I had some issues with a CenterPoint scope a while back and a trip to customer "non-service" was a waste of time and money for shipping. The Leapers scope was a 30mm tube SWAT model that wouldn't focus sharply any closer than 12 yards at 12x so it was sent in for replacement. All I got was the scope returned with this note......

I rechecked my sharp focus distance and it wouldn't focus sharply at 10 yards @ 12x.........


Anywhoo.....for the Leapers/CenterPoint scopes there may be customer service issues where they deny that anything is wrong with the scope.
