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: Clear and sharp glass and reticle. The turrets rotate smooth and positive click. Easy to view mildots. Quality built.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: This is my second Hawks scope purchase. Airmax 4x12x50 on my LGU. This Vantage on my Gamo Urban. Spectacular accuracy. Took 10 squirrels this hunting season. Longest harvest was 58yrds. Very satisfied.
Things I liked: This scope is amazing sharp and crisp
Things I would have changed: Nothing
Things I liked: Clarity and field of view, light gathering for low light shooting with lighted mil-dot reticle. (Shooting in the dark), spring rated ?
Things I would have changed: Honoring the warranty. I could have given five stars,but when it failed after a few thousand rounds with my HW 95's and R9's And 34's l sent it to Hawke and they sent it back saying there was nothing wrong with it. Now it's a paper weight and l will never buy another Hawke scope because they were dishonest, and there scopes are not spring rated.
What others should know: This 4-12x50 Is the best Hawke scope for a spring gun l have found. And l have tried almost all of them under $300. After two or three hundred shots they all started losing center. Air Max has a perfect reticle for an air gun, but they all turn to junk with heavy recoil. The Leapers 10x44 30mm is the best, longest lasting heavy recoil air gun scope l have ever used (40 to 60 thousand rounds each with miner adjustments from time to time and no failures.But they discontinued them because no one bought them. PA never even sold them. It's a shame. I have five and there all indestructible. I even put one on my old bone collector (scope KILLER) and it still holds center.

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?
Can I use it on a Diana 54? --- I see that this scope is not recommended for a 12ft/lb spring rifle! Nowhere is it mentioned the ft/lb force of Diana 54. How can we found it (force of ft/lb)? (I know that it is on the list of recommended accessories, but what about ft/lb--- Is it correct?)
I wouldn't recommend it, that is a 20+ FPE gun
