Hawke Sport Optics Vantage 4-12x50 AO Rifle Scope, Ill. Mil-Dot, Etched Glass Reticle, 1/4 MOA, 1" Tube
Whether you hunt, shoot field targets or plink for fun, this Hawke 4-12x50 AO riflescope is a perfect addition to your gun. This feature rich optic with its ultra-comfortable price brings you closer to your target while delivering high-quality value.
It's no secret that etched glass reticles are superior to wire because of their ability to provide a more precise shot. With etched glass, the illumination function shows only on the reticle where it appears to be floating. Wire reticles can reflect the illumination in the objective lens and be a distraction.
The illumination feature adds another dimension of accuracy. This scope offers 5 brightness levels of illumination in both red and green for high or low lighting situations, or it can be turned off for a solid black reticle.
The Mil-Dot reticle features multiple aiming points for hold-over and hold-under and with 4 Mil Dots in each direction, the precise mil spacing of this etched glass reticle gets you on target quickly.
Please Note: Not suitable for use on a spring/gas piston airgun exceeding 12 ft pounds.
This Hawke scope has an etched-glass reticle, which is superior to a wire reticle because it's etched by a laser and is much more precise. That lets you get even more accuracy from your gun. Another way that etched-glass reticles are superior to wire reticles is when they're illuminated. The etched ones show the illumination only on the reticle. It looks like the reticle is floating. Wire reticles often have a reflection of the illumination in the objective lens, which can be distracting when shooting.
Do you hunt? Shoot field target? Plink? Eliminate pesky garden varmints? This is the scope for you and it's moderately priced, too. From the multi-coating on the lenses to the illumination options, this scope really delivers no matter what your target.

Things I liked: Bright and IR works well. Click adjustment is easy to use.
Things I would have changed: Thinner reticle and add 1/2 miles dot marks.
What others should know: Okay glass for a price point. Works so far. The 50 mm objective allows good light transmission.
Things I liked: Really nice scope. The glass is clear and bright. The reticle is clean and and with the two color option it makes it easy to see in low light situations.
Things I would have changed: I would change from a front focus to a side focus scope. Not that this one is bad side focus is just quicker and easier in a competition.
What others should know: If you are looking for a nice air gun scope that is sub $200 this is a really good choice.
Things I liked: Clear glass, easy adjustments, definite easily felt & heard elevation & windage detents.
Things I would have changed: At this price point I'd like to see the scope should have a 30mm tube and include a large side wheel. But these are minor gripes considering the overall value.
What others should know: This glass is no where near the top of Hawkes line and yet it performs as if it were.

What height rings to clear barrel on synrod?
Does the Bullseye ZR 1 reduces enough the recoil so that I could use it with Hawke 4-12x50 scope, or do you still recommend the 4-12x40 instead? Thanks for your advice.
I wouldn't risk it personally, but it is possible that the Bullseye mount could make this scope work on the 54. Cannot say with certainty though
Thank you for your answer. Can you recommend a proper scope for Diana 54?
What type of scope base is on your gun? What type of mount do you need? Weaver, Picatinny, 3/8″ or 11mm? Do you need 2-pc mounts or a 1-pc mount? 30mm or 1″? Scope mounts intro (Airgun Academy class)
