If you haven't already considered an Airmax scope from Hawke Sport Optics, this is the scope for you.

This Hawke Sport Optics scope has a mono-tube 30mm chassis providing all the added stability you could ever need for the punishing recoil of magnum airguns. It has a convenient side-focus parallax wheel in addition to a 4 inch sidewheel for easier adjustments and the locking, resettable turrets ensure the most accurate and repeatable adjustments.

The AMX etched glass reticle provides even more accuracy from your gun and is based on the 10x half Mil Dot spacing that is popular with other airgunner optics. This reticle features additional windage bars on the lower Mil Dots offering increased aim points for longer range shots. In addition to the crisp etched reticle, the red illumination control bypasses the more common switch for a stepless rheostat. In ambient light conditions, it's a much more flexible way to customize the illumination level to your shooting needs. If you prefer the solid black reticle, simply turn off the illumination.

The fully multi-coated lenses are waterproof, shockproof, and nitrogen filled for the best possible light transmission.

5.0 5.0

4.0 4.0

Things I liked:

crisp clear reticle, bright glass. Turrets lock and are rock solid on the adjustments. As I was zeroing the adjustments and movements were solid, each couple of clicks clearly and evenly adjusted POI. Was extremely easy to sight in.

Things I would have changed:

Not sure I love the metal caps and how they lock. They are definitely solid and lock closed, more like a security safe than a lens cover, lol. But to serve the purpose, they definitely protect the lenses, that's for sure.

5.0 5.0

4.0 4.0

Things I liked:

I bought this to use on a spring air rifle ( AirArms TX200 ) and am very pleased with it. This is the third hawke scope I have purchased and like the others it is rock solid.

Things I would have changed:


What others should know:

This is a fairly long scope, so make sure it will not block the loading areas on Springer/gas piston rifles . It just barely clears the loading port on my TX 200

2.0 2.0

2.0 2.0

Things I liked:

Very Clear Optics; Excellent Metal Flip-Up Covers; Solid Build; Nice Wheel

Things I would have changed:

I bought this to use for plinking and field target. Up to this point, I have only used higher-end UTG Accushot scopes. The optics of the Hawke are definitely better than the similar UTG scope that I've used. The center portion of each scope seems to have similar clarity. However, whereas the UTG scope has about two-thirds of the sight picture in clear focus (with blurry edges), the entirety of the Hawke sight picture is in focus. Unfortunately, my scope had some issues. The main issue is that an interior, rear glass element has what looked like a smudge or mildew on it. Also, the windage and elevation clicks were fairly mushy, whereas the UTG scopes that I've used had very positive click stops. Also, the zoom adjustment knob was set far too tight. There was no way to adjust it without wrapping my whole fist around it and turning it. The AO knob was set to the perfect firmness.

What others should know:

Overall, the clear optics were overshadowed by poor quality control that screamed Made in China. (And, yes, I know that UTG scopes are made in China, but I have not had any issues with 5 of their scopes that I have owned.) After this experience, and considering the high prices, I would probably not buy another Hawke scope unless I could try it out first.

  • Eric from USA asked:

    what do left handed shooters do if they want a side focus wheel ?

    • Paul from USA answered:

      I would think it would work to your advantage, seeing that your not supporting the rifle with your left hand.A right handed person has to reach over the scope to access the wheel.

    • Stanley from USA answered:

      I shoot either way and don't find it difficult.
