    Hello Fellow Airgunners,

     

    I just ordered my FX Wildcat Compact (0.25 cal) yesterday, and now need of a nice scope to top it off.  I’ve been doing a lot of research lately on scopes and watching Cyclops vids…Joe is the best!  I’m reaching out to other bullpup owners for your recommendations on scopes to complement my new Wildcat Compact.  I want something that will fit the gun well and not swamp it or make it too top heavy.  Other criteria is shown below:

    • Primary use is for pest control
    • Max range would probably be 150 yds 
    • Typical range is usually 15-75 yds
    • Side focus down to 10 yds
    • Can be MIL or MOA reticle
    • Can be SFP or FFP (I’ve never used FFP though)
    • I don’t really need exposed turrets since I’m accustomed to using holdover/under for making quick shots
    • No pref on illumination (been hunting without for 30 years)
    • Maximum I want to spend is around $400

     

    Thanks!

    I do a lot of pest control, the illuminated reticle has allowed me to make many shots I wouldn’t be able to without. That said look at the Aztec Emerald, I believe two of them meet your criteria. I own the 5.5x25x50 FFP SF IR Emerald. Great, uncluttered reticle, I’ve taken hundreds of pests with this scope. Prior to this shot SFP scopes, I got use to FFP without any difficulty. Good luck in your search.

    The 3 x 12 has been out of stock since last year.   No one has any in the US as far as I can tell.    And no one has any ETA.  Not going wait for Ali Express, that would take 40 days or more, and if you have any probs then you are outa luck most likely.
