By Zeek_70706 from USA on 2008-11-24 11:59:47Things I liked:Outstanding scope. Everything I expected and more. I have it mounted to a Beeman R7 and use it as a scope and spotting scope at 10x.
Things I would have changed:Adjustment ring on objective lens for parallax distance is a little tight, but hopefully will lighten up with use. Not a concern.
What others should know:Fits perfectly with Leapers medium mounts. I had to notch the front dust cover for it to fit between the scope and barrel. Download the free software from Hawke to calculate the ballistics for the dots in the reticle. Pretty neat program.

By Devin from USA on 2009-06-17 18:58:45Things I liked:Clear optics, objective and zoom ring are smooth and not too hard to turn, turrets click nicely unless something shatters inside. The MAP6 reticle is nice, so make sure you get over to Hawke's website and download the BRC software to take full advantage of it.
Things I would have changed:It would be nice if Hawke offered the Airmax line with side-focus and a 50mm objective on the 4-12x. A 4-16x50mm with side focus would be even better.
What others should know:My Airmax 4-12x lasted for about 300 shots on my RWS 52 and suddenly something broke inside which doesn't allow me to adjust the windage turret. Never fear though, the people at Hawke Optics were glad to back up their warranty. I sent the scope in today for a free repair/replacement.
