  • Richard from USA asked:

    How will this work with the Air Arms TDR?

    • Tyler from USA:

      It would work very well, just make sure you get high rings

  • daniel from Colombia asked:

    Esta mira telescopica es de primer plano focal?

    • Tyler from USA:

      This scope is second focal plane

  • Juan from USA asked:

    What height rings to clear barrel on synrod?

    • Tyler from USA:


  • VALENTIN from USA asked:

    Does the Bullseye ZR 1 reduces enough the recoil so that I could use it with Hawke 4-12x50 scope, or do you still recommend the 4-12x40 instead? Thanks for your advice.

    • Tyler from USA:

      I wouldn't risk it personally, but it is possible that the Bullseye mount could make this scope work on the 54. Cannot say with certainty though

  • VALENTIN from USA asked:

    Thank you for your answer. Can you recommend a proper scope for Diana 54?

  • VALENTIN from USA asked:

    Can I use it on a Diana 54? --- I see that this scope is not recommended for a 12ft/lb spring rifle! Nowhere is it mentioned the ft/lb force of Diana 54. How can we found it (force of ft/lb)? (I know that it is on the list of recommended accessories, but what about ft/lb--- Is it correct?)

    • Tyler from USA:

      I wouldn't recommend it, that is a 20+ FPE gun

  • Ernest from USA asked:

    Will this scope take a side wheel, or can you use a side wheel with it? if so which one?

    • Tyler from USA:

      No, it has an adjustable objective, not a side parallax adjustment. So there is no side wheel for it

  • HumanJHawkins from USA asked:

    New to air rifles. I see this is not rated for spring guns greater than 12 FPE.... Curious how it can be harder to make a scope that will last on a spring gun, when I didn't have trouble buying a scope for my .300 Winchester Magnum years ago. Can someone explain?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Your .300 win mag recoils in one direction, a spring piston airgun recoils both forward and backward, and in some cases there is a fair amount of torque exerted on the scope as well. This bi-directional recoil is why you need a spring gun rated scope, and also why Hawke differentiates between scopes rated for sub 12 FPE springers and guns that produce more power than that.

  • Christopher from USA asked:

    Can this scopes be used on an AR powder burner?

    • Tyler from USA:


  • Jody from USA asked:

    Would this be a good scope for Airforce Texan .45 Cal. Gun.

    • Tyler from USA:

      Definitely, but make sure you get high rings for it

  • Wayne from USA asked:

    Can you use this scope on a gamo maxim swarm? And can you mount a swat wheel on it?

    • Stanley from USA:

      No over an inch to long , unless you use a different mount to raise it ? It is not a side focus scope .

  • Wayne from USA asked:

    Can you add a swat wheel to this scope?

    • Stanley from USA:

      No .

  • scott from USA asked:

    can you use the hawke 4x12x50 scope on a 308 deer rifle???

    • Tyler from USA:


  • Monster from USA asked:

    How many mills does this scope have

    • Stanley from USA:

      4 mill dots in each direction .

  • James from USA asked:

    Why doesn't this scope say shockproof? And is this scope good for black ops sniper .22

    • Tyler from USA:

      Hawke doesn't recommend this scope for use on spring or gas piston rifles that produce over 12 FPE

  • Kent from USA asked:

    where is this scope made?

    • Stanley from USA:


  • Nick from USA asked:

    what rings would you suggest for a .22 Armada.

    • Val from USA:

      probably the high rings since this is a 50mm objective

  • Richard from USA asked:

    What does the reticle look like? How many mil-dots going down? Rich B.

    • Tyler from USA:

      There is a picture of it above. There are 4 mil dots going down from the center of the reticle

  • Mario from USA asked:

    Is this scope suited for an Evanix Rainstorm ll in 25 cal.

    • Stanley from USA:

      Yes it would be a good scope for the PCP.

  • samuel from Canada asked:

    What would be the ideal ring height to use for a Benjamin Trail XP?

    • Stanley from USA:

      I would use high mounts so the scope could clear the barrel.

  • Randy from USA asked:

    Does the illumination turn off, or must you remove the battery?

    • Stephen from USA:

      Yes from the dial for red/green adjustment

  • Eric from USA asked:

    Supports gas piston air rifles

    • Val from USA:

      yes, it's rated for spring and gas spring air rifles

  • Jose from USA asked:

    Can I use this scope in my Benjamin NP XL .22???

    • Dan the Man from USA:

      Yes, you just need some weaver rings.

  • wade from USA asked:

    I do not see rings included. Iwould like to mount this to a 11 mm dovetail. Are rings included for this mount and if not what do you recamend

    • Cory from USA:

      This scope does not come with rings. I would suggest BKL 1" Rings, 3/8" or 11mm Dovetail, Double Strap, High, Matte Black, BKL 1" Rings, 3/8" or... for most 11mm applications.

  • zee from USA asked:

    Will this scope stand the violent recoil of the diana magnum 350? ?

    • Richelle from USA:

      Yes, this scope is able to take the recoil of the Diana Magnum 350.
