Find the squirrel! Using a high-magnification scope, which has a small field of view, it'll take you a while to locate the exact piece of wood the squirrel's on. Of course, squirrels don't sit still, so he'll be moving around while you're looking at tiny segments of the whole area.
With a low-power scope, your field of view is many times larger, giving you a more complete picture of the area. It's much easier to acquire your target when you see a wider picture.

Things I liked: Very sturdy and bright. The right power range for my needs.
Things I would have changed: 1) Place the reticle on the first focal plane, so that you can use the same mildot for hold over/under at any power setting. Plus range estimation can be done at any power setting, not just max power. 2) Drop the 36 colors. Have just three colors: red, green, and yellow. Any more are too difficult to cycle through, especially if your fingers are not as nimble as they use to be. 3) As Roy stated in his review, the eye piece needs an old fashioned lock ring. But this is a "fault" that I have with all the newer scopes that have the "Euro-style fast focus" eye piece. 4) I know it would add to the price, but a side parallax/focus would be nice.
What others should know: So far, a good scope that is holding up to my HW90 with no problems.
Things I liked: A very sturdy scope, nicely constructed....and beautifully bright. Love the reticule.... I am an active shooter/hunter for the past 60 years and was immediately impressed by this scope. My friends at our gun club got their first look at it a couple of days ago and it generated a lot of interest. I am already contemplating another of these scopes for a centerfire rifle but will get the model with 100 yd parallax.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.....
What others should know: The 35 yard parallax is just right for airguns. My new scope resides on a much modified Maurader, now in .30 cal, and I am searching for Miss Piggy..... I plan to invite her home for dinner.
Things I liked: It's been almost an entire shooting season and well over 3,000 .22 pellets down range in my RWS-34 with this scope mounted on it. No problems, not a single one. The scope is stable and stays put, seems like the only time I adjust it is after I break the rifle down for cleaning and lubrication, then only a click or two is needed to get back in the center. I love the 30mm tube and etched reticle, bright and "contrasty". The 1-8 magnification range is no problem what so ever, (hey, we're just used to 3-9X) so don't let the power range deter you from this scope. It's a little wonder, short with plenty of eye relief, clear, and well built.
Things I would have changed: For me personally, I can live without the illuminated reticle which would bring the price down a bit.
What others should know: This scope just works. I have other, less expensive air gun scopes that do not do nearly as well as this one. For a mid power air gun scope this one is hard to beat, it's a reliable work horse.

This scope has a power range I think ideal for my 30-06. Would it stand up to the recoil? Would the parallax have enough adjustment?
Yes it will stand up to it. And it does not have any parallax adjustment, it is a fixed parallax optic.
Will this scope survive hunting usage on a magnum springer air rifle such as an HW95, Beeman R1, etc.?
Yes leapers are known for there strength.
This scope has a 35 yard parallax setting. What is the minimum and maximum ranges at which you have a crisp, clear image?
When using the lower magnifications, 1x-3x, you should be able to get a clear picture (both reticle and target in focus) at 10 yards on the low end. Any magnification higher than that, either the target or the crosshairs will blur out. On the high end, over 100 yards you should be able to use full 8x without issue. I cannot say for sure where you would be able to use the maximum magnification between 35 and 100 yards. Likely around 75-80 yards it would begin to clear up again, but hard to say with certainty.
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)
Scope includes mount. Need a different mount?
