Then, what magnification to choose?

When it comes to magnification of airsoft sniper scopes, there’re mainly 2 types that most shooter choose. One is airsoft scope 1-6x and the other is 3-9x scope.

For longer and more precisely shooting scenarios, the latter is definitely a better choice. But the former has an edge when shoot at a fair close range. Because it can act like a red dot when using at 1x magnification, allowing you acquire the target as soon as possible. Moreover, the variable power makes it versatile in longer ranges as well.

Then, besides the basic features like budget and magnification, you also need to compare and choose the turret type, lens quality and material. Also, waterproof and fogproof plays an important role.

There are two turret types of airsoft scopes. Capped and tactical. The tactical type can be adjusted simply by your hands, allowing quick adjustment. While the capped turret takes more time.

Next, let’s talk about lens quality. The lens quality will directly influence the image quality. You need to care about the distortion of the image, the light transmission and the clarity. Without a good lens quality, the scope will be of no help but a heavy burden.

Therefore, multi-coated lens are a necessity. Coated lens can increase the light transmission, thus providing you clear and crisp image. Such as Victoptics S6 1-6X24 Budget LPVO, fully multi-coated lens improve the color reproduction power of the overall sight.

For it can protects the internal structure from moisture and water damage. Nitrogen filled scope can effectively prevent fogged lens. Be careful to choose your scope considering its water resistance and fogproof ability.

When shooting at varying distance, you need to adjust your scope’s crosshairs to achieve accuracy. Because increased distance will bring more bullet drop and wind drift.

The windage adjustment knob on your scope allows you to make left to right adjustments to deal with wind drift.

The elevation adjustment knob allows you to make up and down adjustments in order to compensate BBs drop.

You need to notice how the crosshairs move when you dial the turret. Besides, there are often 2 measurement markings, MIL and MOA. You have to be familiar with these two measurement first.
