Hey everyone!

Today I'm back with another review for Valken and this time it's for the Sniper and DMR fans amongst you! In this review, we're going to be looking at the V Tactical Scope 1-4x20 w/Mount Mil Dot Reticle (it's a mouthful, but bear with me!)

The V Tactical Scope is a compact 4x zoom scope with an etched glass reticle that has a 20 moa circle plus 3 moa dot that is specifically designed for airsoft use. It has two colour illumination - red and green for a better contrast in low light conditions as well as a high-quality lens to give the user a crystal clear view picture of his/her targets. Along with these features that promote clarity of vision, the sight is built to last - it has a 1-inch one-piece body tube that is waterproof, fog proof (as it is Nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed) and shockproof - meaning it is perfect to withstand the stress of an airsoft skirmish!

The scope comes packaged with a one piece offset scope mount and it is powered by a standard CR2032 battery that is also included in the box. It also comes with a yellow tinted lens cover which serves a couple of purposes - it helps alleviate glare on bright game days, giving you a clearer sight picture and also, brightens surroundings in low light.

For my product review tests, I put the V Tactical Scope on the Ares Amoeba Striker sniper rifle with a standard barrel. As the sight is really compact and lightweight, with its full length measuring in at just 9.5 inches, it is a great scope option lighter sniper rifle set-ups and also for shorter sniper rifles and DMR but as you can see it doesn't look out of place on a standard sniper rifle.

As a complete sniper rifle/scope newbie (I've shot an airsoft sniper rifle maybe 4 times in my 3 years in airsoft) when I got this out of the box, I actually put the scope on the rifle backwards and the internet gave me a good ol' roasting for it - embarrassing, but I didn't know any better and no one is an expert in everything. After this little hiccup, I called in some of my sniper friends and did a little crash course of sniper rifles and scopes. I learned how to properly zero the scope in, when you would use each illumination setting (i.e green is better for low light use) and got to give it a good range test. After giving this scope a thorough testing, I found it is perfect for airsofters who want a no-fuss scope, as (once it's on the right way lol) it's easy to set up, operate and mount.

One thing I really liked about it, is as it is so compact it doesn't add a lot of weight to the rifle either so running it on a sniper rifle for extended MilSim games wouldn't be too much of an issue. The scope also boasts 4.5-5 inches of extra-long eye relief so it is comfy to use for an all-day skirmish as well.

It is really easy to attach and set up - just undo the screws and mount it onto your rail system and adjust the elevation and windage screws accordingly. One aspect that I really like about this scope, in particular, is that you don't need any tools to adjust them - it can all be done by hand, which is super handy if you need to readjust it quickly on the field.

The scope retails for $79.95 (which is around £60 at the current exchange rate) and is available from the Valken website.
