Things I liked:

This scope is great! I got my three turkeys this spring season in California. One was at 74 yards, perfect head shoot. This is quite a scope for the money. I shoot long distance rifle and this scope is close to scopes that cost 6 times as much.

Rating 5.05.0 5.0

Rating 5.05.0 5.0

Things I liked:

Excellent quality, sturdy build, exquisitely accurate, and great glass. The turret adjustments are very accurate and the clicks are solid and precise. I like the metal lens covers and metal sunshade. This thing is durable and precise!

Things I would have changed:

Nothing. It is exactly what I want in a scope.

What others should know:

I bought this to use with a BKL adjustable base mount on a Texan. For me it is a perfect matchup. It is built solid and sturdy. Sunshade, flip up metal lens covers, side focus, red or green illuminated reticle..... all top notch and durable. One year after purchasing and still delighted with it, so much so that I wanted to write this review to help others make the decision to make the purchase.

  • jennifer from USA asked:

    Does this scope include rings

    • Paul from USA answered:

      Most every situation is different so I think it would nearly impossible to send rings and not know which rifle it's going on.And some people want top of the line rings and some people would by ok with so so rings.

    • oats from USA answered:

      It should for 500 bucks but sorry no.

  • jeff from USA asked:

    been through a few scopes with an umarex octane. ya think this glass can hold up to the destructive double recoil?

    • oats from USA answered:

      I have aeon 3x12x50mm on my hatsan 125 sniper 25 caliber and so far so good. Hawks are suppose to be one of the best so it should hold up , if not send it back.

  • Franklin from USA asked:

    Anyone use this scope for FT ? How good is ranging out to 55 yds.?

    • Tyler Patner from USA answered:

      Franklin They do okay. Past 45 yards, they are not going to be as good as the higher end scopes. Realistically, with the stock wheel, you can get good solid marks every 3-5 yards after 40 yards. At least that was the case for me. Your mileage may vary, depending on your eyes.
