    Kayaker,

    Depending on the class, usually dictates the different brands and magnifications of the scopes.

    The most varied class would be hunter class, and due to the lack of being allowed to click within that class, one does not need a click repeatable scope.  Being that this is the case, many different types are used in hunter class.

    In WFTF and Open class, the majority of competitors will use Sightron Slll 10-50×60, Khales, March, Bushnell, and Leupold Competition in various magnifications.  

    Give the match organizers a week or so, they usually put out the complete list of every competitor in every class equipment list.  This would include gun, scope, and pellet.

    Kayaker,

    I absolutely agree with Tom. Hunter division had the highest number of shooters and most diverse scopes.

    Xbowsniper – shutik     Thankyou for the replies gentlemen, had to review that video a couple of times just to take a good look at some of their equipment. It was a eye opener for me, I look at my stuff — their volks wagons (LOL) but the very near future I'll have some high end stuff. I have to admit that I have never researched & read so much on one sport in my whole life  (AIR GUNS) then getting into this. Just trying to understand what the guys are talking about & the abbrevations are melting my dam brain.  Thanks again    Darrell

    Kayaker,

    Don't feel the way to go is all high end stuff, in general, any good shooting gun (PCP anyway, springer's are a whole different animal) should be able to tackle the job.  I used a Benjamin Marauder, with only a couple hundred dollars worth of mods, and even with that, I might go back to some stock OEM parts.  You don't need a $4000 gun, and a $4000  scope to be competitive. Everyone that placed in front of me at the Crosman All American Field Target Championship, was either a former World Champion (2), former national champion (3), and current national champion (1). Coming in 7th in company such as that, is very pleasing with a budget rig. It's the guy behind the trigger more than anything.  I have a TM 1000, a Steyr, and other expensive rigs, my good old Marauder is more accurate.  My opinion, go for the simplest gun, that you can service and fix on your own, and put the best quality scope you can afford, that is appropriate for your selected class.  My entire rig, including the scope comes in at the $2000 or so mark, the scope, a Sightron Slll, being over half that.  You can check out my channel, Field Target Tech, how I accomplished what I have in the past, and some info for the novice shooter, plus Benjamin Marauder tuning tips, rebuilds and modifications.  I'll be glad to answer ANY questions about anything you want clarified or explained about the Field Target sport.

    Man I bet the guys shooting 12FPE had a lot of fun in all that wind.  Glad to see a few Air Arms out there shooting.  Mine always could out shoot me.  I agree though that you don't have to buy a high end PCP to compete.  I watched a young girl at the Pyramid Air Cup win an event with a stock marauder.
