Hawke Optics makes scopes with high-quality lenses that deliver clear, crisp images. Their unique 1/2 mil-dot reticle gives you several aim points for those times when you have to hold over or under. This rifle scope is double-braced for the harsh recoil of magnum spring-piston rifles. It will work well on air rifles, firearms and airsoft rifles.


Please note: If you plan to mount your Hawke Sport Optics riflescope on a spring powered airgun, please choose a scope that features a 30mm tube chassis.

Things I liked: Just got it mounted on a RWS model 54 recoiless and quickly sighted it in at 32yrds. Shot 2 (5 shot goups) that fit under 25cent piecefrom a bag rest. Not to shabby I like the fit and finish and clarity is greaat for the money. I hope the scope can hold up to the springers harsh recoil action. Time will tell !

Things I would have changed: Nada

Things I liked: Side parallax makes for fast adjustments and this one has fluid motion and audible clicks. Turret adjustments are likewise clean and easy. I've put this scope through the punishment of easily 200 shots on a .22 magnum Walther Talon and it's held up perfectly. All round simple, elegant design that's a pleasure to use.

Things I would have changed: Two things I'd like to have changed, first and foremost I'd like more adjustment to the eye focus. I have a crisp image with eye piece at it's lowest setting but a bit more adjustment would be nice and as I age am sure I'll need it. The second feature would be to make this scope in a true 30mm tube. This would likely aid in the clarity when zooming over 10X at closer range. It's not a problem when shooting over 100ft but closer ranges you need to keep zoom 9X and under. Not a big issue unless your aiming at humming birds. I don't believe a 30mm tube would add much weight but certainly would aid in low light settings and believe the haze above 10X at close range.

What others should know: Don't trust the parallax readings at all. You'll have to check them yourself. I made a range and spent the day zeroing at 100ft then plinking at targets 50ft out to 200ft at 25ft intervals. If I thought the parallax was measured in feet the scope would be close. Seriously I didn't bother marking with paint pen as it's almost perfectly 25ft under distance. In that if making a 100ft shot the parallax is set to 75 yards, 125ft set to 100yrds, 50ft was 33yrds. The actual meaning of the numbers was useless but it did work out that I can quickly adjust for distance without having to paint lines. Overall this scope is a dream to shoot. Quick to zero in and once I got the knack of using the mil dots and 10 mph wind could hit 2 inch groupings at 175ft. Amazing what happens to drop with 200ft shots. Had 3" metal targets that was lucky to hit one in three. It's unnatural and will take much practice but mil dots are crisp and quick to use with the dash-dot 1/2 mil sequence.

Things I liked: I have had another of this same model Hawke which was free of the defect described in this review. The tracking of the turret adjustments is excellent and the operation of all knobs is reliable and at the right level of resistance.

Things I would have changed: You may not notice the lack of clarity in the optics of this scope unless you compare it side by side with one of its competitors in this price range. So knowing that superior optical quality is available at this price point, I would want it in this optic. It is however a good optic.

What others should know: I recently have encountered a problem with the recticle of two Hawke scopes. One was this model and the other was with the Hawke Airmax EV 3-9 x 40 mm AO (HK5172) model. In both cases, the reticle rotated in the housing out of square with the turret housing. I unfortunately bought the other scope elsewhere and they do not have the 30 day return policy of Pyramyd Air. So that scope has to be sent to Hawke. On this one, Pyramyd has taken care of the issue and accepted the return of the scope even paying the return shipping to them. That other web-based outlet will never see my patronage in the purchase of a scope again. Pyramyd is the best!

  • Paul from USA asked:

    Is there a full size,side wheel that can be fit to this scope. I understand that Hawke doesn't have one for this model.Also what does the image look like at 10 yards I want to use this scope for field target so I need to focus down to 10 yards.

    • john from USA:

      This scope focus is a little less than 10 meters, the higher power version focus is 15 m

    • Dan the Man from USA:

      No, currently there is no side wheel available for this scope. This scope can only focus down to 15 yards. Any closer would be blurry.

  • james from USA asked:

    Does this item come with scope mounts?

    • Dan the Man from USA:

      No, it does not.

    What type of scope base is on your gun? What type of mount do you need?
    Weaver, Picatinny, 3/8″ or 11mm? Do you need 2-pc mounts or a 1-pc mount? 30mm or 1″?
