Rugged Scopes for Springer Air Guns Login/Join

What is your opinion of a good and reliable scope for a powerful Springer ?

I am looking for something less than $200 for now. The most expensive scope for any rifle I've ever bought is my Burris 3 x 9 Air Rifle scope. It is still going strong, but right now, can't afford one like that.

Let me know a good one about $89 up to $200. I have some pretty potent air rifles, and a cheaper scope even if they say air rifle rated, the will be disembowled fairly quick. Ask me how I know.

Appreciate any and all input/info. Just sent back a Bug Buster compact. Really liked it, but unable to zero it in windage wise. I have the correct mounts for the droop barrels.

Thanks, all the best,

Hawk Optics is one of the highest rated and also have scopes in the price range your looking for. When I was still in the optics business my customers loved the RWS line of scopes, even on the RWS 350 I have never seen one fail.

Not so pricey but adequate scopes for a springer. The center point scopes are made for Cross man and guaranteed to take the recoil of all air rifles . If your springer can break them Crossman will replace the scope.
I have a 4X16X40 on my Benjamin trail NP 22 and it holds zero just fine.

Konus makes some tough scopes rated for springers.

I use Leapers, UTG scopes on my springers. Although I almost never use the springers anymore, since I switched to pcp guns a while ago. I have a RWS Dianna 52 and a Gamo swarm magnum if anyone is interested.

I have a Simmons Pro Air 4-16x40 on my Weihrauch HW97 .20 caliber springer air rifle. I'd guess I have around 1,000 pellets through the rifle and the scope has never given me any problems. I have an Element Optics Helix 6-24x50 SFP on my Maverick Sniper. These are awesome scopes and will hold up on any springer, but they start at $399.99.
