Things I liked: The glasses are perfectly clear.... The reticle is a dream.

Things I would have changed: I would like it to be a little bit lighter.... The paralax adjustment without the weel is not comfortable.

What others should know: From 4X to 12X I hit the same spot, but the scope seem not no keep same point of impact if the power is above 12X.... Once I confirm that the scope is perfectly sighted, I will start testing the up and down torret to see if it gets back exactly to the zero... I will make a review once I have more expierence with the scope.

Things I liked: The reticle is what I wanted in a scope. This scope mounted okay but seemed it took a long time to sight in. Weird, it usually doesn't take too long. I have shot with this scope several times after the initial sight in and it seems to change every time I take it out. Checked mounting, everything seems tight. Not sure about this scope, it seems okay and has a great reticle, but not sure if it isn't moving somehow. More shooting is required.

Things I would have changed: It is really heavy for carry while hunting. It would be nice if it were lighter.

    Things I liked: Good reticle, clear optics, illuminated, nice click feel on adjustments. They have a little 'slop' in the feel but this actually works nicely when making adjustments without looking because it lets you 'test' the knob before the click. Built in metal flip caps are nice. The wide parallax adjustment is great, although it is not particularly accurate as a ranging tool on this scope. One of the greatest things about this scope is not on the scope at all: the Hawke chairgun software. Invaluable for long range shooting with an air gun, and a huge reason to go with a Hawke scope for an rifle.

    Things I would have changed: I have a few minor gripes: First, the illuminated '+' at the center of the reticle has a 'flare' that extends a small distance diagonally to the lower right when shooting at night. It is distracting and can cover up the target, I opted to keep the scope but I considered exchanging it for a new one. Second, it would be great if it came with a first focal plane reticle. This is true of many other scopes, but it is a little silly to have to plugin numbers into software to know what the reticle means at a given magnification.

    What others should know: The focus wheel blocks the magazine on the S510 unless you use very high rings, I opted for low rings and ditched the wheel. Despite the few minor issues, this (or other Hawke scopes) is really the best option I have found for modern air rifles. There are many scopes out there, but Hawke is one of the few companies with all the features that matter for modern air guns. If it had a first focal plane reticle and a fix for the flare issue, it would be close to perfect.

    Things I liked: Had a hard time at first going through with this purchase. Was a little steep for my budget. Waited and saved up, and purchased this with absolutely no regrets once I mounted this beauty. Clearest image on any scope to date, easily adjustable turrets, minimalist illuminated reticle,and the crosshairs, WOW! Absolutely the best I have used. Mounted this beast on my Diana 52 in .22. Makes those longer shots even easier, and closer shoots just too easy.

    Things I would have changed: Other than lowering the price ;) nothing

    What others should know: Get proper quality scope mounts for your investment. This not an inexpensive scope treat it well and you will be rewarded.
