Hello across the board, first post here so hopefully I don't upset anyone.

After researching a few scopes I've decided on the UTG 4-16X44 for various reasons.
The motivating  factor in this purchase was the description of it being a (Compact) scope !

When received, she measures a full 16 1/4 in long ! Hardly what I would consider compact. Could there be more than one model of the same power / make ?
She appears good looking but before I mount it & really put it to use I need to know what others think about this sizing question. 

Is this considered a compact length ?

I may be totally wrong on this but all 3 of my normal length scopes the sightron  a delta stryker and ior crusader are all at or around 17" something with out pulling them all out so I cannot believe that that would qualify as a compact scope unless a 70 Cadillac and a focus are the same size car. then again at 13 inches long this is an ultra short for a  s and b so maybe it is compact. As long as you are happy does length really matter lol

Their listed dimensions for that scope say 13.8 inches long.

So you might have the non-compact version, does the box and/or packaging say?
Freedom is something you take.
Respect is something you earn.
Equality is something you whine about not being given.
