Things I liked:

Clarity! Holds zero with no issues mounted on my Hatsan AT44W10. Mildots are just the right size. On 10 power the AO adjustment works great if your target is 15, 25, 50 or even a 100yrds picture is perfectly clear and easy way to tell how far your target is so you can use the Milford to adjust your shot as long as you know your shot curve! Also at 17oz it's light compared to a scope weighing 23+oz when you're carrying an air rifle around all day that little bit of extra weight will wear you down.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing!

What others should know:

Hawke makes a great scope! I will buy more Hawke optics!

Things I liked:

Focus adjustment on the bell was way to tight...don't won't to bring a pipe wrench when using this scope, but it took a strong two handed grip to move it....obviously something was wrong, so I returned it. PA has been good about standing behind its merchandise, especially when it doesn't work as you would expect.

What others should know:

every manufacturer can make a lemon now and again

    Waaaay better than the UTG I first purchased. I'm glad I sent the UTG back. This is clear and very well built.

    Nothing I can really think of.

    Things I liked:

    Sights in great. easy adjustments, using this scope on my crown I can do head shots on birds with ease.

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe the price.

    What others should know:

    I don't know if it's the scope or my crown, but I haven't missed with the scope on my crown. I've hit 7 or 8 birds (HEAD SHOTS) at at least 50 yrds. Very clear sight and I would buy again. Will switch scope out on different guns to make sure the scope is accurate or is it just my FX Crown.

    Things I liked:

    I have it mounted on a brocock compatto in 22 for over a year now. I use for small game hunting. Scope looks great on the rifle, optics are nice and clear. AO is good and snug. Takes a firm grip to rotate it. Mildots are just the right size for me. I see them well.

    Things I would have changed:

    Include a sunshade

    What others should know:

    When shooting targets in the back yard you couldn't ask for a better scope. But when hunting especially in the mornings I get a bit to much glare. Added a sunshade and it really helped. As stated above. It should be included with the scope

    Things I liked:

    This scope has excellent clarity for the price point. Its light gathering and field of view are good. All mechanical adjustments are solid and smooth. The wire reticle is easy to see, yet it is not too thick. The overall weight is very reasonable. I have my Vantage mounted to a Benjamin Marauder rifle, and it helps me achieve great accuracy.

    Things I would have changed:

    At this time, I would not change anything. The scope does everything I need it to do better than expected at this price point.

    What others should know:

    This is an excellent scope for the money. I highly recommend it.

    The Marauder requires dovetail rings; not Weaver's!

    Finish was nice for a scope at this price point. Everything worked as intended.

    Things I would have changed:

    At this price nothing

    What others should know:

    This scope I should have sent back to be honest...I bought it to mount on a brocock compatto 22 for a hunting rig.... scope dialed in fine... mounted fine and looks good on my rifle..my complaint is there is a dark spot in the upper right corner...I'm sure not all these scopes are like this one. Other than that it's a pretty good scope

    Things I liked:

    Clear glass for the Money, clearer than my SWFA 3-15x which is a $600 scope Price Mildots

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing at this price. Maybe add Hawkes 1/2 mildot reticle.

    What others should know:

    One of the better scopes for a PCP. Its pretty light, price is great, glass is clear. Has been durable so far on a PCP with a few drops no issues. If you are just using hold overs and set the turrets to like 20 yards its great. The front focus is a simple yet effective design that has less to wrong than side focus units. When you got up in price you wont always get a WOW effect. This is just as effective at 50 yards as my SWFA scope.

    Things I liked:

    Works great very clear for the money. On 12x I can shoot roof nail heads of a sheet of plywood at 30 yds.

    Things I would have changed:

    Would be great if it had a side focus and maybe flip up lense covers

    What others should know:

    Mounted to a benjamin maximus in 22cal. Also bought the airforce escape in 25 and put a cheaper scope on it and it's not doing so great. As soon as I can I will be putting this scope on that as well

    Things I liked:

    Works well and is clear. Fairly small mill dots still can see the target.

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe flip up covers instead of the ones you can use as a slingshot that come with it.

    What others should know:

    Good value. I can see a dime at 35 yards no problem.
