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: clarity, holds zero
Things I would have changed: nothing
What others should know: Lighted reticles are ok, the next scope will have side AO. My scores improved immediately upon use.
Things I liked: easy to adjust, nice glass.
Things I would have changed: make turrets easier to adjust. hold zero.
What others should know: the adjustment knobs are a little sensitive to adjust/ hold zero. but for price , scope is good.
Things I liked: Bought this scope because it was recommended for the Sumatra 2500 I bought.
Things I would have changed: The whole scope, which I did. Could not get a crisp image, the only thing in focus was the reticle. I returned scope, exchanging it for a leapers/utg acushot which is the brand have on my TX200 which I bought 9 years ago. Another better scope is the Centerpoint which costs $99 and which I have on my Marauder.
What others should know: The Sumatra is very, very loud. Marauder and Air Arms s510 that I own are very quiet. I can shoot the latter guns in my field and the neighbors haven't complained yet. The Sumatra sends echoes around the field so I go into the woods to shoot it.

Will this scope take a side wheel, or can you use a side wheel with it? if so which one?
No, it has an adjustable objective, not a side parallax adjustment. So there is no side wheel for it
New to air rifles. I see this is not rated for spring guns greater than 12 FPE.... Curious how it can be harder to make a scope that will last on a spring gun, when I didn't have trouble buying a scope for my .300 Winchester Magnum years ago. Can someone explain?
Your .300 win mag recoils in one direction, a spring piston airgun recoils both forward and backward, and in some cases there is a fair amount of torque exerted on the scope as well. This bi-directional recoil is why you need a spring gun rated scope, and also why Hawke differentiates between scopes rated for sub 12 FPE springers and guns that produce more power than that.
Can this scopes be used on an AR powder burner?
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)
