Whether you hunt, shoot field targets or plink for fun, this Hawke 4-12x50 AO riflescope is a perfect addition to your gun. This feature rich optic with its ultra-comfortable price brings you closer to your target while delivering high quality value.

It's no secret that etched glass reticles are superior to wire because of their ability to provide a more precise shot. With etched glass, the illumination function shows only on the reticle where it appears to be floating. Wire reticles can reflect the illumination in the objective lens and be a distraction.

The illumination feature adds another dimension of accuracy. This scope offers 5 brightness levels of illumination in both red and green for high or low lighting situations, or it can be turned off for a solid black reticle.

The Mil-Dot reticle features multiple aiming points for hold-over and hold-under and with 4 Mil Dots in each direction, the precise mil spacing of this etched glass reticle gets you on target quickly.

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. 

This Hawke scope has an etched-glass reticle, which is superior to a wire reticle because it's etched by a laser and is much more precise. That lets you get even more accuracy from your gun. Another way that etched-glass reticles are superior to wire reticles is when they're illuminated. The etched ones show the illumination only on the reticle. It looks like the reticle is floating. Wire reticles often have a reflection of the illumination in the objective lens, which can be distracting when shooting.

Do you hunt? Shoot field target? Plink? Eliminate pesky garden varmints? This is the scope for you and it's moderately priced, too. From the multi-coating on the lenses to the illumination options, this scope really delivers no matter what your target.

Things I liked: Very clear optics. Great for low light shooting. Affordable. Hawke quality. Easy sighting in.

Things I would have changed: Nothing, it surpasses my expectations.

What others should know: I mounted this on a Brocock Contour S6 and the first shot without any adjustment put the pellet 2" from the bulls eye at 20yrds. At first I thought it would be too heavy or large for such a small rifle, but it's working out great. No regrets with this purchase. Very clear optics. Lets in an amazing amount of light for shooting at dawn and dusk. This is my first scope with a lit reticle and I wasn't sure I'd ever use it. As it turned out, the first time I hunted at dawn, turning the light to low helped a great deal placing the cross hairs on a rabbit. If you plan on hunting closer than 30yrds., back the power down some for a wider field of view and easier target acquisition.

Things I liked: The field of view, the Ir on the etched glass works flawlessly, the high torque zoom and ao, plenty of moa adjustment and the clarity of the Hawke scopes speak for themselves. Oh yea and there's the price!!!

Things I would have changed: I wish there was a picture of the scope image on all scopes on there. I may have missed it but I didn't see any description for mil dot count. As far as the scope it's true to the Hawke brand. Although I was looking for more mil dots.But that's probably my fault for not further researching or asking.

What others should know: The zoom, magnification and ao are smooth as butter. Plenty of moa clicks. The Ir on the etched glass is 1000xs better than on a wire reticle. Good field of view and the clarity is awesome! The 50mm draws in alot of light. I currently have his mounted to my Hatsan 135 qe in .25 cal and with double strap weaver mounts the only time I've had to rezero is when I switched pellets. If the specs meet your needs I highly recommend this scope!

Things I liked: Great Scope for the money. Nice and clear optics. I like the adjustment without a screwdriver or coin.

Things I would have changed: Etched glass reticles a little thin for my eyes.

What others should know: Perfect partner for the Benjamin Marauder. I used the BKL 1" Rings that worked perfect.
