    Default Scope choice advice

    I am looking at getting a new scope for my HW100S 5.5 when I eventually get the promised replacement from the dealer.
    I am keen on the Hawke Vantage 3-12X44 SF or 4-16 X44 SF,but the Nikko Stirling Diamond long range 6-16X50 had a good review in the May Airgun world magazine. Can you guys (incl gals) give me some feedback and advice backup etc.I am on a small farm so this is not for competition etc.Thanks.

    Look, everything in Airgun World gets a good review. Hawke all the way if for no other reason than the local warranty is actually worth the paper it is written on.

    The Optisan 10 x 44 Viper from Airgun Warehouse will be awesome

    Don't buy the MTC version. Backup has a 'reputation'.

    The Hawke agents sell direct, the Vantage is apparently in stock: Hawke Vantage 3-12x44 & Hawke Vantage 4-16x44

    Optisan and MTC are solid choices too
