High-quality, high-definition optics doesn't have to be expensive to be good. This economical scope from Hawke Sport Optics combines many of the features normally found in much pricier scopes. The Hawke Vantage rifle scope line was formerly called the Sport HD, but has now received an upgrade with mono-tube chassis for superior strength and clearer optics. One of the nicest features of the Hawke Vantage 3-9x40 AO rifle scope is the glass-etched reticle which makes your target easier to acquire. Turn on the illumination and only the reticle lights up.

This Hawke Optics scope has an etched glass reticle which is superior to a wire reticle because it's much more precise. That lets you get even more accuracy from your gun. Another way that etched glass reticles are superior to wire reticles is when they're illuminated. The etched ones show the illumination only on the reticle. It looks like the reticle is floating. Wire reticles often have a reflection of the illumination in the objective lens which can be distracting when shooting.

I bought the HAWKE VANTAGE 3x9x40 AO scope for my HATSAN EDGE VORTEX rifle. After mounting the scope and zeroing I"m very satisfied with the clarity and the accuracy of this scope. I made a mount for my I phone on the scope to use as a camera and it works great !! it brings the back yard shooting sessions to a whole new level !!

great clarity holds a zero lighted reticle good in low light conditions

Installed on my Benjamin Nitro ll 22 cal, major improvement over stock scope. Clear and bright, excellent focus at any magnification level, mill dot spacing very nice. Illuminated reticle is a plus also. My shooting greatly improved, as I'm grouping 1.5" at 50 yrds which is great for me as I'm no marksman. I really like this scope.

Is this acceptable for the Venturi Avenger , and what are rings that aren't included, do I need rings to operate the scope.

asked Victor M from USA

It just doesnt come with scope rings so you gotta pick some out that fit the tube correctly and gives you enough clearance for the objective lens. you need rings to connect your scope to the gun if there are no open sights.

Bryce from USA

Does this fit the hatsan blitz Full auto rifle?

asked jimmy from USA


Mark from USA

Specs say "Suitable for all airguns- firearms and airsoft guns". I thought Hawke only rates their Airmax series for spring piston air guns. Will this scope withstand double recoil spring guns .177-.25 cal.?

asked Ennis from USA

This scope is not rated for high powered spring/gas piston guns. 12 FPE or less.
