Hawke airmax 30mm tube, sportsmatch mounts on a Wolverine B hilite. I pick the rifle up by the scope all the time and have never had a poi shift. I accidentally bumped the scope today on the benchrest while loading the mag…….no poi shift at 60 yards. I have owned airguns that were very delicate with regards to how they are handled and poi shifts tho. I think it depends on the gun and mounts. I like knowing I can literally carry my wolverine by the scope between the mounts…..like a handle with no poi shift. Tells me its as solid as a rock. This is not how I carry my rifle tho…….I just like knowing its thats solid.
