I keep trying to convince myself that I need a quality lightweight FFP scope for my FX Royale, but there just isn’t one for airgunners that I can find. I tried the BSA and it just didn’t agree with me. There are other variants of that one like the Primary Arms, but I expect they’re similar to the BSA so I’m not motivated to try those. Right now I have a Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5-16×42 with the mildot reticle, and when shooting pests under 50 yards I just can’t seem to miss. The glass is fantastic, eye relief fits me great, the zoom range is insane, and it only weighs just over a pound. March makes one that’s crazy expensive, so I wouldn’t (actually can’t) go that route. Bushnell has one in their tactical line, but it’s about 7 ounces heavier. I think the problem is I’m not shooting enough, because when I’m dropping starlings and sparrows and squirrels I’m never thinking about a new scope, it’s only when I’m not shooting! Now if I could just get that FX Impact off of my mind…
