Things I liked: I like the side focus OA very clear scope and mil dot reticle is great for small game hunting
Things I would have changed: better scope caps
What others should know: this scope holds up well on my 22 cal. gamo bone collector it had destroyed two scopes before I finally switched to this hawke 2.5 x 10 x 44 great scope.I have put 2300 pellets thru my rifle with this scope and it holds Zero .
Things I liked: This scope is mounted on a tuned .17 cal. RWS 54. While these rifles are recoiless to the shooter, they are not recoiless to the scope. They do have the reputation of being a scope destroyer. I have fired 250ish shots with this scope mounted on my RWS 54. I used JSB 10.4 gr. heavies. I boxed this scope to see how well it would track. I used one full turn of the turret which is 15 min for each leg of the square. The range was 10 meters exactly. In the attached picture I shot the upper left hand group then moved the adjustments down 15 min. The impact moved 2.08". I then moved the impact right. It moved 2.06". I then moved up 15 min. It moved 2.08". I then moved left 15 min. The impact move 2.06" and impacted right on top of my first group. You'll notice that the first group now has 6 shots in it and that it's not quite as tight as the other three groups. This is because I'd shot out my aming point! The side focus is so much easier to use than a front focus.
Things I would have changed: While the image is quite flat at 10 power, it does have a fair amount of swim at 2.5 power. But this is "only" a $150.00 scope. To expect perfection grinding of the lenses is a bit much at this price. The scope adj. are marked as .25 moa per click. When I boxed this scope I found the movements to be .1 moa per click. This is great for precision short range shooting but won't work well for long range work. I won't know what the maximum range will top out at until the the winter snows go away.
What others should know: While the adjustments claim .25 moa per click this scope's adjustments are actually .1 moa. I'd like to hear from other folks what their scopes adjustments work out to be. This Scope is a great buy! To have a scope that tracks so perfectly is a rarity. It was absolutely precise in it's vertical and horizontal adjustments.
Things I liked: i like the retical and the glass
Things I would have changed: i would change the structure of the erector springs so they handle alot more recoil
What others should know: the scope failed under the power of the np2 recoil i only got about 200 shots with it and it wouldnt hold zero anymore. i double checked all my stock screws and my rings everything i could double check i did. the scope will not hold under the np2 it mite on a normal springer or a titan gp or something like that if the gun has a history of cracking scopes dont get this scope thinking it will save the day nice scope tho i would love it on a 22 lr its a nice scope
Is the reticle wire or etched glass?
This scope has a wire reticle.
