I think 3-9x is fine for a springer.  You are probably going to do 40 or 50 yds max.  AO and mil-dots are MUCH more important.

You did good.  I think the HW95 is in the springer goldilocks zone for power and its the next one I’d buy.  Weihrauch quality is mesmerizing.

One thing you might want to consider that I did on my HW30 is to take off the front sight and install a ‘muzzle brake’ if you are strictly using a scope.  This is basically just an aluminium handle that gives you something nice to grab while cocking.  To me it feels better than having my hand against the front sight on the skinny barrel and I think it looks cool too.  The Beeman branded Weihrauchs were sold this way from the factory without sights.
