Accessorising your airsoft replica is a rite of passage, and is one everyone goes through, whether it be the addition of functional items, or merely simple additions to make the gun feel more yours. Regardless, there are many options to choose from. One of the biggest choices many people face is what sort of optic, if any, to put on their gun. Some prefer the fast target acquisition benefits of a red/green dot sight, whilst others prefer the longer range approach of the magnified optics. For Red Dot sights it’s just a case of deciding on a shape/style that you like the look of, and going from there. With magnified optics it’s a little more complicated – you have to factor in eye-relief, objective lens diameter, magnification and optical clarity, as well as size and styling.
A classic rifle scope design, the 4×40 scope offers everything you need in an attractive package. You get the scope, mounts, and lens covers, and the scope itself has more than sufficient objective lens to give you a very clear sight picture, as well as having the perfect magnification for airsoft; anything over 4x is seeing further than you can hit, and is only useful for spotting targets. Due to the size of this scope, it is better suited to longer assault rifles such as the M16, or on Bolt Action rifles.
