By DavidW from USA on 2009-12-05 16:33:09

Things I liked:

All aspects of this scope are first rate. The W/E adjustments are crisp and precise, the zoom and parallax aadjustments are tight enough they would not loosen on a hard hitting springer. Sight picture is good at all magnifications. Mil-dot reticle has small precise crosshairs for target shooting but big enough for hunting.

Things I would have changed:

The W/E adjustment knobs could be a little smaller / low profile without changing the working mechanism. (nit-picking)

What others should know:

I have this scope on my Marauder .22 mounted with AirForce 2 pc. high 1" rings and love the whole package. The gun and scope combination are a lot more accurate than I am. Very, very satisfied with the scope.

Things I liked:

Nothing

Things I would have changed:

The scope broke before we could sight it in and it ran out of windage adjustment for a proper sight in as well. Things I would change - the whole scope for a better quality product.

What others should know:

    Things I liked:

    Does what I need it to do.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing really. Nice complement to a Talon SS. Holds point of impact just fine with a couple notes. See below.

    What others should know:

    I read a couple of the reviews that referred to problems with the scope holding its zero. I ran into the same problem but for an unexpected reason. We'll just say that as I advanced in age, I found myself needing reading glasses. I opted for the half lens style rather than the full lens shape. I soon realized that I was looking over the top of the glasses lens when looking thru the scope. The result was a fuzzy crosshair. No big problem. I just adjusted the diopter ring until things cleared up. This required more outward adjustment than I expected which allowed the diopter ring to have slight side to side movement. This caused the zero to shift unexpectedly. One of the reviews I read solved this by putting a "O" ring behind the diopter ring to hold it concentric. Instead, I bought a pair of FULL LENS SAFETY READERS w/1.50 diopter from Amazon. Crosshairs are in nice sharp focus, diopter ring is screwed all the way in, and we're back to tight groups.

    Things I liked:

    The illuminated reticle. Clear view. Extended sun shade.

    Things I would have changed:

    The cross hairs seem to be off center. When I level the crosshairs, the scope is at a slight angle. If I level the scope, then the cross hairs are not perpendicular. Is there a way to adjust this?

    What others should know:

    Use high scope mounts.

  • 5.0 5.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    Solid performer on my .22 Marauder so far. I bought this on Tom Gaylord's (BB's) recommendation and definitely not disappointed. It IS lighter than the UTG scopes, which might have led to some of the other reviewers' comments on cheap quality. However, glad for a lighter scope on this rifle and the zero has remained rock solid despite a bit of bumping around. Reticle is thin enough not to obscure target at farther ranges. View is bright and crisp even under overcast. Not enough time has passed for a decent longevity test, but so far, so good. I'm considering buying a second when I pop for an Armada.

    Things I would have changed:

    A 30mm tube would probably have provided an even brighter image but it's definitely more than acceptable as is.

    What others should know:

    Probably stating the obvious but you'll need HIGH rings for this . . .

    Things I liked:

    Excellent Scope. Was unsure if bundled scope would be good enough. PLEASANT SURPRISE

  • 4.0 4.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    Great scope. Good adjustments, illumination is nice. A little big and maybe too powerful for an air gun. Have only used it for less than 100 shots at low to medium power.

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing

    What others should know:

    The lower powered 'brother' would also most likely work well on the AirForce Condor I fitted it to. A little more than I wanted to pay, and I have not used the higher powers much as yet, if they are really needed for airguns. Maybe the higher powers will be useful to find the squirrel hiding in the tree, or something. Visually impressive.

    Things I liked:

    Nice clear view and easy turret adjusting knobs.

    Things I would have changed:

    A sun shade would be the option as an accessory

    What others should know:

    nice scope out to 65 yds can use to 100 yds but starts to fade on clarity.

  • 5.0 5.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    very good light gathering... no you don't really need 16x for an air gun but i decided to try a lower power scope with smaller objective lens it just isn't as good this has much better clarity than the lower power scope i may be buying another one

    Things I would have changed:

    you really don't need 16x but if i have to buy it to get the 50mm objective lens and the clarity i will

    What others should know:

    good scope

  • 1.0 1.0

    1.0 1.0

    Things I liked:

    Sharp, bright focus, BUT I'd suggest spending a little more for lifetime warranty from another manufacture. Mine held up for several years, but when it did fail to hold windage, I was left with big black paper weight.

    Things I would have changed:

    One year warranty from AirForce.

    What others should know:

    Learn from my experience! I bought this scope as part of a package deal, not thinking about service after the sale. Yes, AirForce will stand behind this product for one year. I hope you make a more intelligent choice. I would advise only shopping scopes that offer lifetime warranties!

    Things I liked:

    The first scope that I received was damaged. I called Pyramid Air and they supplied me with the RMA info immediately. Sent scope back and in one week I received my new scope. Sighted it in very quickly and am now shooting with very tight groups. Having that 16X zoom magnification is very nice. Optics are very clear and bright.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

  • 2.0 2.0

    2.0 2.0

    Things I liked:

    I was not very impressed with this scope. It immediately felt and looked cheap. Bought as part of a package with Talon SS and the poor quality was evident. I immediately switched it out for a Leapers that I had on another rifle. The Leapers is much better by comparison. The Airforce feels and looks like a toy compared to the Leapers. The Airforce graphics and printing are more toy like, not tactical looking. Also, I couldn't line it up to get a proper sight picture. Don't feel like you have to go along with the pre-packaged Airforce items when buying one of their guns. Other choices in scope and pump are a better way to go. The Airforce guns are very nice and accurate, but as other reviews have stated, the accessories are not up to the quality of the rifle or other options from different manufacturers.

    Things I would have changed:

    Too expensive for the quality you get

    What others should know:

    Look at Leapers product offering - better quality, value, and more tactical look/feel.

    Things I liked:

    This pump arrived DOA for me. Bought it as part of a package with my Talon SS and the pump never worked right from the start. Would not seal with the factory spin loc tank. You could hear the air leaking from the hose and connection. Immediately returned it for the Hill pump and I am very happy that I did. The Hill works great, well worth the extra $

    Things I would have changed:

    Would have liked it to work - but glad it didn't so it forced me to upgrade to the Hill pump. Didn't like not being able to use my Talon SS for a few more days as I waited for the Hill to arrive.

    What others should know:

    Spend the extra money here and get the Hill - read the reviews it's clearly a better product

    Nice scope i have this on my condor , bright and clear.

    Things I would have changed:

    Needs included flip up covers and maybe a sun shield otherwise perfect.

    What others should know:

    Easy to sight in, accurate. I would buy another one anytime.

    What others should know:

    had to return , zeroing problems replaced with good rifle scope the gun was able to shoot a 1/2" group at 78 yards

  • 5.0 5.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    If you can understand bullet drop and a little of the mil system, you will be able to combo this with a Condor and group under 3/4" at 125 yards....it also has great and easy to use 1/4 click adjustments without having to remove the covers....

    What others should know:

    I was hesitant because I have always used HAWKE scopes, and this Airforce scope has now gotten my attention! Great scope!!
