RWS 4-12X50 Air Rifle Scope with Red Illuminated MilDot 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. This 30mm scope has a mil-dot reticle that illuminates so not only will you have a durable scope, but a luminance clear view of your target.

Solid Scope
December 17, 2012
You would think this thing belonged on a military sniper rifle. It's extremely solid. Electronic cross hairs are very handy. Definitely recommend with RWS lock down mount.
Built like a tank Holds zero

Nice scope on paper but fragile
March 26, 2014
I had three of these and all of them were defective. I sent the first two back because the illumination knobs failed on both of them after the first few times used on my Gamo Bone Collector Bull Whisper 177. On the third one, the site cross mechanism broke loose inside the scope after a half dozen uses. The scope works nice when it works but either there is a problem with workmanship or design. I've had no problems with the Gamo 4x32 scope that came with the Bull Whisper or the factory scope on my Umarex Octane 22. I don't plan on purchasing any other RWS scopes.
Lots of features for a good price.
Design or construction seems fragile as I only used my airgun for target shooting in my back yard and three of them failed.

Excellent airgun scope
March 8, 2014
I bought this to mount on my BNM and bryanandac modified Discovery. Between the types modifications of changing out the valve to increase air flow and increasing the CAL to 25 while adding a magazine and shroud I wanted a good scope to complete my gun and give me the greatest accuracy for my tired old eyes. Well, I could not ask for better. The illuminated reticle and large viewing area makes this scope a pleasure to use. I was surprised at the stability of a scope of this price range. It shoots dead on time after time with no change even after the gun being stored in a soft case. When these go on sale again I'll be buying another. Gene

broke after 3 months
February 10, 2014
I got thus scope about 3 months ago for $59.99 on this website. I loved it at first. The power on it past 10 is blurry. It held a very good zero on my gamo big cat 1250 at 20yds. This gun has a lot of recoil and shattered one of the inner lenses and the crosshair became wiggly. I'm sending it back on warranty for a new one.
Good zero, and illuminated reticle
Broke after 3 months and zoom its blurry past 10

Good Scope for the Money
December 21, 2013
I like this scope for lighter power air rifles. It is impressive looking but not real reliable for high power recoil. I had to send the first one back because the illumination knob became so loose that it would not stay in place eve after only light recoil. Airgun Depot replaced the scope with no problems but I had to buy another scope in the mean time to use with my Benjamin Regal because the rifle comes with no sights. The second scope is now mounted on the Regal and I have had no problems so far. I find it kind of disappointing that a scope that carries the RWS Insignia is so fragile but that's the way the ball bounces sometimes. I think, for the price paid, the scope is acceptable but only for use only on a low power rifle.
Great looking scope for the price.
Fragile and easily broken. Buy it only for use on light recoiling rifles. I would only recommend this scope to a friend to use if it was for a light recoil rifle like the Benjamin Regal.

Quality Construction
December 11, 2013
This is a great scope for the money. The field of view remains large at high magnification. My only problem is that It is sometimes difficult to focus the scope completely. Also, like most rifle scopes, the focus ring is on the end of the eyepiece. That is normally not a problem, but I cannot use it for my night vision setup with my Sony Handicam. (see Snypercat on Youtube for a tutorial on how to make homemade night vision with a Sony Handicam)

Great scope for the price
November 24, 2013
Mounted this scope with a RWS 30mm 1 piece scope mount on my new Diana 34. It was sighted in with only 4 shots at 20 yards. The scope is bright and clear and the illuminated mill dot reticle is great. I am very happy with this scope and highly recommend it for any air rifle.
What a great bargain for the price and Airgun Depot is the best.
This scope is heavy but so are all scopes of this size and quality.

Middle of the road... Out of the box the scope looks sharp, actually impressive. Scope came mounted on two piece scope mounts. I mounted scope on my RWS 22 cal 460 Magnum, factory rail, simple enough. Problem... After 5-7 test shots the scope mounts became loose, actually slid backwards and almost falling off rail. I also noticed the glass vibration (scope lens) was problematic in maintaining a decent shot group due to the known vibration/recoil of the 460 Magnum. I re-mounted the scope, made some adjustments, fired 7 test shots. After 3 test shots the scope mount slid backwards, when the scope mounts reached the back of the rail I pushed my thumb up into the scope mount flush with the rail for the next 4 test shots. Not only did the mounts slide backwards but I noticed that the scope slid back 1/4" in the mounts as well. This scope didn't work for me not to say it will not work for you on another air rifle system. So in the end I went back to my 14 yr old scope (Bushnell 4x12x40 Trophy) with a UTG DN460 scope mount for RWS 460 and 1" Hi-Pro scope rings. No issues... No worries... Spot on all the time!

A Real Sleeper
November 16, 2013
This scope is a bargain. You can pay 3 times as much and not get a better scope.
The RWS 4-12X50 is a real sleeper in the Air Rifle Optics world considering the price. It handles the jarring that a High Power Air Rifle puts out without loosing it's zero. The mil-dots are small enough that they don't cover the target at longer ranges, and the illumination can be turned down low enough that it doesn't over power the user. The AO on this scope is very accurate and the Power adjustment operates smoothly. At the sale price, NOTHING out there even comes close to this scope. I'm buying another just to have on hand for my next Air Rifle.
This is a large scope and it is somewhat heavy. The Focus is very good up to around 10 power, at that point it starts to loose a bit around the edges although still quite usable.

2nd times a charm
November 11, 2013
When I received this scope the illumination dial was loose but otherwise it seemed to be well built. Up to 10x power the scope was crisp and the mil dots are small and precise. Parallax adjustments allow for field range finding. Adjustments do not require a screwdriver which is great if adjustments are needed on a hunt. Multiple illumination settings are great for different variances of lighting. This thing gathers light great. That being said....the first scope I received made short of 100 rounds before a lens (I think) came loose leaving the vision blurry and I could hear something rattle around loose inside. When I contacted Airgun Depot they quickly assisted me in return of the scope ( they paid postage ) and I should have the replacement in a few days. They seem to be a great company and I look forward to another review of this scope in which I'm sure will rate 5 stars. RWS is the benchmark in air rifles so I'm confident in their products.

Very nice scope
November 9, 2013
The quality of this scope for the price is very good. The only thing I did not understand is why they put the small .22 type dove tail mounts on a 50mm class scope. So I will have to buy some tactical type mounts but this scope is well worth it.

September 2, 2012
This scope replaces the scope that came with my Stoeger X-20S and it is outstanding. The adjustable magnification is great and the targets at 30 yards look like they are right in front of you. I bought the RWS 30mm lockdown mount as well and it all looks great.
Easy to install. Magnification.

RWS 4-12x50 CI Air Rifle Scope
February 18, 2012
Outstanding Scope! I use it with my Gamo Hunter Extreme with solid performance. The recoil from this air rifle has already shattered two pervious BSA scopes. I shoot the Raptor PBS and get groupings of a 1/2" at 50 yards. This scopes gathers plenty of light in low light conditions. The illumination helps out even more with that last shot at dusk or before sunrise. A must have for serious air rifle hunters.
Light gathering, illumination, clarity, price, durability.
Haven't found anything!

Excellent scope. I mounted it to my RWS 460 Magnum and hit every one of my driveway snow stakes before I even sited it. Good clarity and makes a nice appearance on my 460.
Illuminated rectile.
A little stiff to adjust but should loosen up with use.

RWS 4-12X50 CI Air Rifle Scope
January 29, 2011
I mounted this scope on a Gamo Hunter Sport air rifle. I also used the recommended lock down mount. On an air rifle the lock down mount is a must. So far has worked great. I previously had a BSA sope mounted on the rifle. The BSA scope could not take the recoil of the Gamo rifle and would change sighting after a few shots.

The scope seems to be clear and very solid. I put it on a Crosman Marauder 22 cal., and the first shots were off my back porch. They very close with no adjustments. I have not taken it out yet to zero it in, but so far I am very pleased with it.

Does RWS make a sunshade for this scope? If so are they available?

By Staff on April 16, 2012

I am sorry but we don't carry an rws scope sunshade. It would be worth going through RWS to find out though since we don't carry their whole inventory.
