Good value!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on August 23, 2013
Other than battery installation/removal, nice unit. Relatively small and light weight.
Pros: Has very decent optics clarity for price points and uses standard AA batteries.
Cons: Installing the batteries is a "bit of a trick." Battery cap is difficult to screw on/off due to location....
Would recommend: Yes

Battery cap impossible to use properly

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on August 16, 2013
The battery cap is squeezed in between other parts of the scope making it almost impossible to open. Very user-unfriendly and battery compartment easily broken loose from body if you have to resort to using pliers to open (which you will sooner or later).
Pros: Inexpensive
Cons: Battery cap located poorly...
Would recommend: No

good image; does not hold zero

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on May 24, 2013
I mounted this on two different rifles, with a reliable mounting system, and it would not hold zero. I would shoot a string, sight it in, then set the rifle down or walk up to tape paper, when I would shoot again, it would be off by 1' to 2' on a man sized target at 50 yards. returned and waiting on refund.
Pros: image even without IR illuminator
Cons: does not hold zero...
Would recommend: No

Best buy for your money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 17, 2013

Pros: very light, tough, easy to use, AA batterys
Cons: none that I can find...

Good Value Easy to Use

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NC Written on November 22, 2012
The Yukon Mini Varmint hunter is great. I got this while waiting for a more expensive Gen 2+ on back order. When I got this one I cancelled the Gen2+. I mounted this in 5 minutes as it had simple knobs and was able to bore sight it with my laser in 10 min. The knobs are easy to use and don't require a coin to adjust. The scope sighted in at night relatively easily. It was high left and adjusted to center in about 16 rounds. I took it out to my hog stand and was hunting the night I sighted it in. The vision is great in clear nights and moon phases. I also had good visibility in overcast with light bouncing off cloud cover. Dark no moon cloudy nights require the use of the IR light on the scope. The low magnification is acceptable for my stand but I might like to have a higher power scope. The reticle is bright red and can be used as an aim point during the day. Remember to keep the cover closed in daylight. Great value for the money!
Pros: Good Price, Easy to Sight In, Good visibility, Easy to mount
Cons: Battery tube hard to access, Limited to IR in dark nights...
Would recommend: Yes

Worst Gen 1 I have ever Used

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on November 19, 2012
My eyes were better at seeing with ambient light at night than this tube! ( no IR)

when using the IR light up only a little circle near the crosshairs. This unit was sent back for a refund. No "20 degree angle of view" with this unit!

Thankfully Optics Planet has a good return policy. Thank you Optics Plant!

I have had other Belorussian units before ( gen 1+) I would rate this as below gen 1. YMMV.
Pros: none
Cons: IR does not light up most of the tube, Starlight capability is absent!...
Would recommend: No

Awesome short range scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MA Written on November 19, 2012
I bought this to mount on a Horton Vision crossbow. Had read that some night vision was not compatable with crossbows because of forward recoil. Since the Horton is a reverse limb design, I decided to give it a try. The scope mounted easily on the existing Weaver rail and returns to zero each time it is re-installed. Light gain is decent without the IR and since my setup is a 50 yard system, the built in IR is fine to add a little extra illumination. The scope does not magnify like the 4X on the bow, but I am able to shoot 2" groups at 30 yards.
I am very impressed with the quality and performance for this price range.
Pros: Built like a tank
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Great equipment

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, AR Written on October 27, 2011
This is one fine scope. Better than anything we had in 'Nam. I have it on a Bushmaster .308. Nailed a 200 lb hog around 10 PM. Difficult to get warrantee registered, but great help with customer srvice for that.
Pros: light weight, AA batteries, pinhole in lens cover
Cons: haven't seen any yet...
Would recommend: Yes
