History, development, & technology

TS, as in True Strength®, is the signature scope construction platform of Leapers UTG® optics. As the name suggests, no matter if it's a full size or compact scope, magnifier or dot sight, we aim to achieve the highest dependability starting at the heart of our scopes' structure. The research and development of this innovative structure was initiated in 2001 and in 2002 the first TS Platform scope was put into mass production. With our continuous testing, verification, and multiple rounds of improvement, we started promoting and selling TS optics on a global scale in 2005. Today, all our optics are built on the tough TS Platform to include a one-piece integral aluminum main tube, meticulously placed reinforcements at key structural points, and nitrogen purging to achieve optimal rainproof, fogproof, and shockproof performance even in the most challenging of scenarios. This superior TS Platform has even been adopted into the lineup of UTG® laser products, giving them precise and secure adjustment.


  • The Smart Spherical Structure (SSS) is one of the most significant characteristics of the TS Platform.
  • SSS simulates the human joint structure to achieve the utmost precision and reliability.
  • The erector tube is constrained via a ball and socket structural relationship, which provides the desirable flexibility to respond to windage and elevation adjustments and the optimal ability to hold zero under heavy recoil.


  • Reduces and Absorbs Recoil, Alleviating Potential Loss of Zero
  • Fully Tested on Both Air Rifles and Firearms
  • TS Technology Implemented in Every Leapers Scope


  • The Most Advanced and User-friendly Windage and Elevation Adjustment System with Innovative Design, Precision Components, and Disciplined Assembly
  • UTG®'s Leaf Spring System is Made from a Special Heat Treated Beryllium Bronze Alloy to Maintain Reliable and Consistent Long Term Tension
  • ACCUSHOT® Models Equipped with a Rugged Coil Erector Return Spring System For Improved Zero Hold Under Heavy Recoil and Greater Windage/Elevation Adjustment Range


  • Low profile illumination control housing with reinforced circuitry prevents intermittent reticle illumination enven under the heaviest of recoil
  • Red & Green dual-color and 36 multi-color modes to accommodate all weather & light conditions
  • 1-click illumination memory returns the user to the last color & brightness setting used
  • Green low power consumption technology with automatic 1 hour shut-off

The BG4 reticle is designed to be fast and intuitive to use and features ballistic drop compensation and range finder markings out to 600 yards. The ballistic data is based on common 5.56/.223 loadings in modern sporting rifles. The three tick posts draw the eye to the center for rapid acquisition at close range, while the drop compensation allows for rapid engagement of targets throughout the platform’s effective range.


The center dot (A) is intended to be zeroed at 100 yards for the remaining bullet drop reference points to work as intended. As an alternative for short range zeroing, the 300 yard point (C) can be used to zero at 25 yards. If this is done, we recommend conforming the zero at 100 yards at the first opportunity. The BG4 reticle provides seven points of aim (POA) corresponding to points of impact (POI) from 100-700 yards to determine range to an 18" wide target. All of these correspond to when the optic is at full 8X magnification and may only be approximate based on your specific loading, rifle variant, and prevailing climate.

(Subtensions are only valid at full 8x magnification)

If an 18" target fits between the bars marked X, the target is approximately 100 yards away and you should use POA A. If it fits between the bars marked Y, it is approximately 200 yards away and you should use POA B. The bars for the remaining POA's correspond to an 18" target at their respective ranges.
