RWS 6X42 CL Air Rifle Scope with Red Illuminated Reticle. Why an airgun scope instead of a firearm scope? RWS Airgun Scopes are equipped with Airgun Shock Reinforcement (ASR) Technology that allows the scope to handle the specific recoil of an airgun where the first kick is rearward like a firearm, followed by an additional forward kick that is unique to an airgun. Firearm scope lenses are reinforced at the front to handle the rearward kick. The lenses on an RWS Airgun Scope are additionally reinforced at the rear to handle the second (forward) kick.ASR Technology protects the scope lenses from the unique recoil of an airgun.

Awesome scope

I bought this scope for my Benjamin Titan NP and this thing is so much better than the stock scope. I sighted it in in about 10 minutes and this thing is very accurate

Very good scope for the money
February 1, 2014
Got this scope with my RWS 460 it is a very clear scope with useful features. I liked the fact that the parallax adjustment was just about spot on for each distance & the illuminated reticle is very handy for low light shooting. Mil-dots make it easier to shoot at various distances without having to re-adjust the cross-hairs to compensate for elevation.
1) Loaded with features. 2) Clear optics & handy illuminated reticle.

Excellent scope, very clear and bright.
February 1, 2014
Put this scope on a tuned B26 and it regularly shoots 1/4" groups @ 25 yards. Sometimes smaller and of course sometimes I mess up and they open up. Mil-dots are great and the clarity is excellent. Tracks great, have had no problems with repeat-ability. Overall an excellent scope for a high powered springer.
Clear, bright, tracks great.
Rings that came with the scope were too high for me, I got some mediums but the scope itself is great.

I bought this for my .22 Hatsen striker, I have had it for a few days and so far so good, good quality, easy to zero, holding zero after 100 rounds, great scope for the Buck, 6 power is all you need for an air rifle, and the illuminated Rectile is nice also and has 7 brightness selections, and the adjustable parallax makes it a dream to use, all around great scope,,, Buy It, you wont be sorry Nice quality.
Well made, Clear optics, Nice look, Great Price

Quality scope with good optics. Clear field of view and easily adjustable dials. Scope mounts are not as good as expected.
Clear field of view and easily adjustable.
Scope mounts are very sensitive to tightening, don't use too much torque when tightening.

Get this scope ($54.99) and the Center Point laser bore sighter (17 to 50 cal) ($29). Sight to laser dot. Get the Shoot-N-C 6" targets. So you can see with scope where you hit and then aim at bull's eye and adjust scope where you hit!!!! SIMPLE!!!! Dial it in with same ammo and you will never miss. I got the Hammerli 850 (177) with the Dragon Claw bi-pod and brake barrel (wrap electrical tape around it finely back to front and you only hear the hammer and the Hit !!! The red lighted cross-hairs are sweet. They even load the battery for you!!!
Great scope worth $100 easy. This with my Hammerli 850 looks like a real sniper rifle. It is a monster that does not miss period.
Big and heavy but so is The Mount Palomar Observatory :):):) Get it??? GET IT !!!!

works good so far
October 26, 2013
I bought this for my RWS mod 36 which has killed more than one scope, including an expensive Bushnell that was supposed to be for spring airguns. So far it is holding up ( about 200 shots, usually enough to start the kill process). It is doing the job it is supposed to, nothing more nothing less. So far a very good item for this price.
Heavy duty solid built, clear, adjustments work as advertised. No complaints except one ( see cons)
You would think being a RWS it would be made in the same country as the gun---not so---Made in the Peoples Republic of China like most everything else. I am crossing my fingers and hoping it holds up for the long run. This does explain the low price.

Nice scope.
March 18, 2013
This is a good quality scope that can stand up to the recoil of my gamo silent stalker whisper. The optics are clear. The illuminated reticle is neat but not something I personally find the need to use. I only gave this scope 4 stars because the scope mounts included are not adequate to hold the scope still. Works nice with the RWS lockdown mount.
Holds up to recoil of high power air guns. Clear optics.
Scope mounts provided are not able to keep the scope from moving on my air rifle.

Good scope for the $$
January 27, 2013
Nice scope, very accurate. Get the one piece lock down mount. Made my Benjamin a tack driver. Small issues but good scope for the money
Good clear picture. Cost, stays zeroed in. Good eye relief.
The illuminated reticule puts a red haze in the scope at night. Not impossible to shoot with, but just kind of fuzzy. Lowest setting is still pretty bright in the woods at night. Factory mounts that come on it are more than 180 degree. They wrap around the tube making it hard to remove them without scratching the scope. Factory battery was dead when scope arrived.

Works good, excellent light transmission with 42mm obj lens and 30mm tube. Lighted mil-dots work as they should. Mounts are ok on a low to med power springer but if you are mounting it on something with some squeeze, get the RWS lockdown mount.

I have bought some really junk scopes that I thought would be good enough for what I am doing, but that's wrong. I heard a lot about RWS from friendx and they said RWS builds nice products, so I decided to look into it. I purchased this scope and I love it. When I got it and mounted it, I barely had to make adjustments. I am shooting a dime a 75 yards. I killed more squirrels than I ever have with other scopes. I also went with this scope because nothing else will hold up to my GAMO Bull Whisper spring loaded 1400 FPS, without breaking the scopes after a couple of shots. Make sure you use RWS one piece mount also, I guarantee you will be happy and dead on your target every time. I use GAMO Red Fire Pellets and they are accurate and deadly to squirrels.
The scope is built nice, strong, accurate, and never goes out of adjustment. I love it and I would definitely buy more RWS products.
No complaints at all.

Amazing Scope
August 21, 2012
The scope itself is absolutely amazing. It is a little heavy, but it works perfectly with my lightweight air rifle, giving it a bit of extra weight which helps stabilize it when I shoot. So why give it 3/5 stars? The shipping was waaay too slow!. I ordered on August 14, and received the scope today, August 21st! If there is any suggestion I could give to Airgun Depot, it would be to switch shipping carriers from Fedex to UPS. In my experience they are much cheaper and much faster.
Everything from the quality of the build and the accuracy to the illuminated reticle (battery included!) It even has a parallax distortion adjuster which ranges from 10yds - infinity.
Slow shipping!

In an era when so many products seem so unsubstantial, it was a very nice surprise to take delivery of a product that is so much more than I expected. In terms of features and solid construction, this scope is a bargain at $77.

I purchased this air rifle scope recently. It is a very well made scope from the look, it comes with the mounting rings, an allen wrench and instructions. I installed it to my RWS46, with little adjustment, I got very good result, I am very happy with it.
Well made, sharp and clear view. very good price for this scope, easy to install and easy to adjust.

This scope is Very High quality for the price. The 6 power is just right fof most targets near and far.The rear retical focus and the front focus are tight and dont rattle like a cheap scope might. I give this one A+++ And it can handel STRONG spring rifles withought damage. I have it on a RWS 48.It works just fine.

This outstanding scope paired with the RWS Lock Down One Piece Mount installed on my RWS Diana Model 34 .177 cal. shooting Gamo Rocket Ballistic Tip Ammo has turned my 20 year old firearm into a virtual tack driver. I could not be more pleased with the outcome of this combination!

RWS 6x42 CL scope
May 7, 2011
I mounted this on a Titan Nitro Air .22 for varmint control. Very happy with it. I like fixed power scopes - IMHO you get more value for the money, and for hunting purposes 6x is as much magnification as you'd ever need on a deer rifle, much less a pellet gun. This is a well made, sturdy scope. Good optics, nice and bright, nice clean reticle. The illuminated reticle has come in handy a few times for shooting against the dark background of heavy brush. I've picked up a bit of glare now and then, and will probably try mounting a sun shade to see if that clears it up. All in all, this scope is better than at least a couple of the ones I have on deer rifles.

I bought a high-powered spring pellet rifle and could hit anything with the scope that came with it. The thing kept drifting all over the place. When I got this puppy lines up, I was easily picking off soda cans a good 50 yards away. Illuminated recticle is awsome, especially at night. Scope is a little over priced, but totally worth the money. Works great on those pesky squirrels too!
