Scope suggestions for S510

Post by Cottis » 20 Aug 2016, 08:48

Hi all

Its time for a new scope. My hawke eclipse 3-12x50 has been a good buddy for a good time but ive not looked after it as well as i might have and there is a slight bit of damage to the coatings on the occular lens. Perfectly useable but it still bugs me, so time to get a new one and relegate this to a crummy old gasram for more mundane use.

Budget is anything up to a grand but the less the better. It is looking like an stac 2.5-17x56 at the moment but open to suggestions from people who have used a variety of scopes on a simple airgun for ranges out to 50yrds.

It will be used for approx 70% of the time as a day scope with the remainder being used with my wardy 700 and t20 for night time wabbits.

Fire away gents.
