Perfect Scope

Postby longrifleredneck on Sat Dec 22, 2012 2:52 pm

Who makes a variable from 3-14 (more or less) power,W/AO that is adjuatable down to 10 yards, & has a illuminated red or orange dot? Want high quality. I can't seem to find one.

Sorry, don't know of an illuminated scope with a 10 meter AO of any quality. You are at the top of the heap with your Leupolds, as posted in your other thread. It may have to do with the dual/reverse recoil of spring piston airguns that are used normally at 10 meters. You may want to try a laser like the Beamshot 1000 with the appropriate mount for your application, or a mounted Laser Genetics light to illuminate your target.

How about the Hawke Eclipse? Can Leupold adjust the parallax or side focus on their adjustable parallax scopes? I know they can and will on their non adjustable ones?

I just looked at the Hawke Eclipse 30 4-16x50 for the first time. We just started carrying them this year. I have played with some of their other offerings including their mounts. They seem like entry level and decent for the money. Nothing to write home about. The Eclipse seems like it may fit the bill for you. The heft of it and size give the impression of a higher quality level. The elevation and windage adjustments seem crisp, the picture is fair, and the illumination is both red and green and goes low enough not to drown out a dark target. It will never pretend to be the quality of your Leupolds. Not in the same world. You originally mentioned a quality scope. The word quality is subjective. Would I put it on a good airgun of mine? Perhaps, but this one is really large and heavy. Too big and heavy for me. Otherwise it seems like an okay product, and about the only one that has the features you were looking for. Thanks for bringing the Eclipse line to my attention.

The Leupold Custom Shop cannot adjust a parallax setting down to 10 meters on an AO or side focus scope. Only on a fixed parallax model.
