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: 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.
Things I liked: Very nice scope with bright optics and clear sight picture. Reticle is very easy to see and use. Turret adjustments were clean and crisp. Parallax adjustment through adjustable objective also very straightforward.
Things I would have changed: Just wish it were side focus parallax adjustment. Would also like to see them ship battery separately, although installation is not the easiest I've ever encountered. Time out on reticle illumination seemed a little short sometimes.
Things I liked: Clarity of the glass is better than most glass scopes I've seen at this price range. All the features are really easy to use and the weight is incredibly light. The red light is nice to have for dusk shooting.
Things I would have changed: Raise the price $35.00 and use components that would make this scope springer friendly.
What others should know: I love this scope but NOT FOR SPRINGER GUNS. Using the magnification at x6 I could easily and consistently shoot dime size groups on the mark. Unfortunately I was using a springer and the right to left adjustment knob popped off the scope after 600 or so rounds. Luckily it happened with in the 30 day return or exchange period and P/A allowed me to return it. $200.00 is my max on the price of a scope due to my income or else I would have gladly moved up to a Hawk 30 mm scope.
