Simplicity is underrated. Sometimes there is no need for bells and whistles. When you need a solid product to do the job you can rely on the Hawke Optics Vantage 3-9x50 AO illuminated rifle scope. 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.

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 use a benchrest hold on my 48 and use the red reticle for nite work. i did all the zeroing of the hawke in one afternoon and had to quit early when i saw my neighbor throw a rope with a hangman's noose over a limb on his maple tree lol. i've dropped 3 rabbits so far at 30 plus yds. with this rws48 and hawke combo and will do more.

50mm really brings in the low light image and the illuminated reticle makes night hunting rabbits easy(flood lite on garage near backyard garden) from a table on the back porch. the hawke is mounted on my rws 48 using hn 17.13 gr. silver point pills. i was worried about the hawke being unable to handle the 48's recoil but after trying 10 different pellet configs. and about 250 shots the zero is still right on. maybe the all up weight of the gun tamed the recoil a bit. this scope is a great buy; a little pricey but solid!!

What scope ring height for this? Medium or high?

asked Ryan from USA

Will the Hawke Vantage IR 3-9x50 AO work with a Benjamin Trail NP2 .22?

asked Kim from Canada

Can I use the Hawke Vantage IR 3-9x50 AO on a Gamo Swarm Magnum .22.

asked Antonio from USA

if it's a hard kicker you might want a hawke airmax to handle the recoil. i use one on my rws 350 with no problems

Dennis from USA

Does the illumination stay on or is it switched on and off, also if it's on all the time how long does the battery last, can it be used without the illumination?

asked Paul from USA

the illumination has an on/off switch. The battery lasts months . The scope can easily be used without the illumination on.

Mark from USA

going to get sig asp 20 in .22 cal. will this scope take the recoil ?

asked Robert from USA

No.You need a Airmax Hawke or a 30mm tube Hawke model.
