*If you don't use the illumination, the reticle will be black.
A great hunting scope that'll stand up to pounding recoil. Most impressive will be the illuminated reticle. Use plain red, green or black or one of the 36 colors built into the EZ-TAP system. If you'd like to adjust this scope in very fine increments, remember to buy the big optional sidewheel, which fits over the scope's side turret.
This UTG scope has an etched-glass reticle, which is superior to a wire reticle because it's etched by a laser and is much more precise. That lets you get even more accuracy from your gun. Another way that etched-glass reticles are superior to wire reticles is when they're illuminated. The etched ones show the illumination only on the reticle. It looks like the reticle is floating. Wire reticles often have a reflection of the illumination in the objective lens, which can be distracting when shooting.
