I have a CenterPoint 4-16x56mmAORG, mounted on my .25 cal Marauder, and have hunted her hard for a couple of prairie dog seasons now. The combination of that scope and rifle, have been amazing out in the dog towns. They have allowed me to make head shots on prairie dogs all the way to 100 yards, and the optical performance of this scope is a big part of what has allowed me to do that.
I was so impressed with its capabilities in the field, that I picked up this CenterPoint, Power Class 4-16x56mmAO, to put on my .22 cal Marauder.
The only difference that I can see, between the two scopes, is the 4-16x56mmAO does not have the illuminated red/green reticle feature, that the 4-16x56mmAORG, on my .25 Marauder has. Since I don't use that feature, I opted for this model without the illuminated reticle. I picked it up at Walmart online for $114. I don't know if that's a close out price, but as far as price performance goes, this scope has got to be a best buy.
The specs are the same as my first CenterPoint, excluding the R/G illuminated reticle. Coated lenses, 30mm tube, side focus, 1/8 MOA click value on the W/E turrets, all weather construction, mildot reticle, lockable turrets. It also comes with a 4 inch sunshade, popup lens covers, and fast focus eye piece.
The weight runs 27 ounces, just what I'm looking for when I want to add some heft to a rifle I'll be hunting prairie dogs with in the wind. I really like the clarity of the two that I have, and the side focus is nice also.
One of the things that I really like about both scopes, is the size of the crosshairs and mildots. I run my scopes at 8x, and the crosshairs are thin enough, and the mildots are small enough, that they do not completely cover small critters, like prairie dogs, even at 100+ yards. This is very important to me, because I make some very small corrections in my hold sometimes, and it's nice to be able to see the critter behind the crosshairs, even at long range.
This is not a small, light weight scope, so it's not one that I will be putting on one of my carbines any time soon, but for what I bought it for, like on my .25 cal Marauder PCP, this will be a very nice addition to my .22 cal Marauder rifle.
The below targets show how she shoots at 55 yards. I was sighting her in with the 18 grain JSB Exact Jumbo Heavy's, and fired this five shot group in a light switching breeze.
Now I've got twin Marauders, not quite identical, but close.
