    Given I’ve got a potential scope killer coming soon I went ahead and put down the cash for one if these.

    Somethings I’d like to know is if anyone here has used one? If so how did it perform?

    Hello JD,
    ​    I bought the BULLSEYE MOUNT and the group of my gun went from 1/2 inch to 2 inch. this thing is too flexible for any accuracy. I sent it back.
    If accuracy is an objective DON’T BUY.    Larry B

    I bought one with the weaver mount and found you’ll be limited by the scope size that can be used… my 40mm Centerpoint doesn’t sit all the way down (base in the middle hits the bottom), my Hawke2-7×32 AO Sport HD scope is too short… It will work with most of the cheap 4×32 scopes that come with airguns.  If only the rings were a little bit higher.  I’d recommend passing on it.  Now I have a couple of the Beeman 5039 1-Pc adjustable mounts (dovetail) and they work quite well.

    I purchased on of these for my new RWS Model 54, Air King.  This is a very powerful air rifle known for damaging scopes quickly.  I mounted an inexpensive ($150) 40 MM scope on it and zeroed it at 20 yards.  Once I found the right pellet I began putting one pellet inside the hole of the previous one, one after another, after another, after another, etc. (all day long).  No issue with accuracy at 20 yards and beyond.  I have taken shots out at 50 yards and beyond with incredible results, as long as I do my part.  With regards to using the mount with a shorter scope, simply loosen the allen nuts that secure the rear ring to the rods, and slide the ring up on the rods a little.  It increases the spring tension a little but it still works great.  I had to do this to mine.  The good thing is that this mount works; it mitigates the effects of forward recoil and allows the use of less expensive scopes on heavy recoil rifles like the Model 54.  Love it!  I have had it for many months now a still no issues.  I have recommended this product to friends.

    If you want one of these then get one from Hector that has been accurized. http://www.ctcustomairguns.com/hectors-airgun-blog/archives/10-2015

    I tried one of those mounts for a Hawke Airmax 30 6×24.  gun was shooting about 5: to left at 20 yards, and not enough adjustment to get it zeroed.

    If you buy a bullseye from Hector, it will be machined to be perfect. Nothing like what you bought elsewhere.

    Figure @ $150. Plus extra machining for large scopes. I have 2 of them and now I realize the value of them.

    Buy the Sportsmatch Dampa mount. No problems and only $10 more in most cases.

    I got one of the Sportsmatch fully adjustable mounts.  Centered the scope and actually zeroed it with the mount , took a couple of hours with those small allen wrenches but got it done. Also installed an anti slip block behind the rear mount.  We will see how the Hawke Airmax scope will hold up.to the recoil.

    I do not recommend the AirMax series on springers unless they are the front focus ones.

    Jkingrph,

    What rifle are you you using? If it is a Diana 54 then the Bullseye ZR mount is a good idea. Anything  else may make scrambled eggs of your scopes.

    The rifle is  a Diana 54.  I tried the Bullseye zr mount and  could not get the scope on target..  I have the scope in a SportsMatch adjustable mount and will just have to wait and see about the scope holding together.

    I'm hoping it will hold up.  I had the misfortune of a double crown on my front teeth break off yesterday.  I fell and hit a piece of furniture about 65 years ago and have had crowns ever since.   The last time a dentist worked the adjacent tooth for a more stable base, then put some pins into the one that had been broken, but a small piece of the old damaged tooth broke off.  Upon looking my dentist determined the root was dead so did a root canal, then put in a solid post and was able to reuse my crown, saving quite a bit that way, still cost me about $1600, so gun purchases are on the back burner for a while.

    Why

    On Second thought I WON'T recommend any HAWKE brand on springers…

    https://www.airgunnation.com/topic/problems-with-yet-another-hawke-scope/

    On a side note I do like the NEW HAWKE FRONTIERS and they appear to have the nicest glass out of all Chinese scopes I looked through so far cisting up to $1199.

    I would also be bold to say it even rivals and beats some lower end Japanese scopes such as the $699 SWFA SS 3-15×42 specifically in regards to glass.

    I recently bought a HAWKE 2-7×32 AO and the glass pretty much looks identical to my $49 Barska 2-7x32AO Airgun scope AND my old $40 BSA 2-7x32AO Airgun scope.

    I buy scopes to try especially what others REALLY SWEAR AND RAVE ABOUT to see what's all the fuss is about. 

    There are so many that I WILL NOT RECOMMEND based on price for what you really get.

    I may buy them and end up keeping but won't push them if they don't seem to have good enough value based on cost everyone pays for what you get.

    How many Alpha 6s do you have? Is there any other scope you have more of? And what is the nicest, spare no expense (well beyond my Peugeot 403 driving budget) scope?
