    Favorite scope superior clarity thru the whole optic range. The Hawke computer support is dead nuts on, and great price to boot

    This is my favorite scope and never used/saw one better for airguns. I have three of them in several guns. I love the reticle, clarity, the small wheel, finish, and the easy to adjust turrets. You will not be disappointed.

    My 2nd Hawke scope for my Cricket was the Scope you describe. Excellent scope! I am sure there are better but I have never owned one this good before.

    Palo, I like the small wheel too.  The big wheel is probably a great feature, but it looks odd to me.  I  know a bunch of people  have paid extra money to get the big wheel.    I just ordered  and should be in first of next week.  I couldn’t turn this deal down.  Thanks to everybody for the help.

    Excellent scope for the money.  Have been using one on my MPR-FT for the past 5 years and have fared quite well in HFT.  Using a comma type wheel with an effective diamenter of 6.5″ on side focus knob which provides fairly good rangeing in the above 40yd. area.

    Does it come in a metal case or cardboard box?

    I have two of the 20X 1/2 mil version which I think is the greatest feature. The reticles dots and dashes are spaced out as though it was zoomed to 20X. This allows for uncluttered shot placement. You can even accurately guesstimate say a 2 3/4mil dot shot if needed.

    I like the hawke scope line since I have 5 of them.(on my pb rifles I use Leopold most of the time)   Got the last one a week ago from buds gun shop and not sure why they are so much less there? but it came in 4 days.

    If it matters to you if you have a turret that lets you know what rotation you are  on  then you might  not want this scope . I’m pretty sure it doesn’t raise up ans down or have dash marks on the turrets so you know what rotation your on   .It just rotates in a circle with no way of knowing what rotation your on . Just look into it I might be wrong . I did see that Hawke did copy the locking type turret that sightmark has used on their scopes for years now . If your not using the scope on a  springer  take a look at the Sightmark core tx 8.5-25×50  (sm13076 MR) for around 289.00   Its their new line of scopes and a next step up from the triple duty scopes they have . the ballisticscenter.com has a photo of the MR  reticle.   Compared to the hawke scope the sightmark’s MR  reticle has  7 mildot dashes and 1/2 mildot shorter dashes  going all the way down .It has the marks on the  turrets and they move up and down  so you know what rotation your on. It has a 50 mm objective instead of  42 mm ., 25x instead of 20x . It has the 1/8 moa adjustment instead of the 1/4 moa . The sightmark scope is a little heaver 29  compared to 27.5 but your getting bigger glass .The sightmark scope have a lifetime warranty and are known for there clear class and  true tracking on the turrets . Just check out this scope before you get the hawke . You really get a lot of scope for the money  a lot more than you do with the hawke .   http://theballisticscenter.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/TBC_Catalog_2016.pdf  .

    I have a Hawke Sidewinder Tactical 6.5-20×42 on my FX Impact. The scope is very clear and works well with my scope camera. I love the scope and would definitely recommend it!
