“scubajeeper”I had a Hawke Varmint 3-12 and had to send it back. I’d like to hear from some of you that have experiences with these, mine was horrible, it functioned fine but the optics were about as bad as they could get, maybe I got a bad one. I bought the scope because they are light, I’m not a fan of heavy scopes and I don’t need a lighted reticule.  

I had one as well. It was my second airgun scope, the first being a Leapers 4-16X 50 I think. It funtioned fine but I thought the reticle was too heavy which gave it a cluttered look. I then upgraded to Sidewinders and Eclipses which I have two of each and and haven’t looked back. I did try a Optisan Viper with the SCB reticle which was a 10X 1/2 mil but it seemed a little cluttered as well. I guess I just prefer the 20X 1/2 mil.
