Airgun Scope

Log in to see fewer ads
I need a scope for an airgun with an AO of less than 20 feet so I can use it in my basement. I mainly want to use it to practice for rimfire silhouette. It would be nice to be able to use it for airgun silhouette. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I have an Aztec Emerald 3-18x50 that will focus that close. Itís an incredible scope for the money and is well suited for Field Target, Silhouette, or hunting. Check it out on YouTube or look at it on Airguns of Arizona.

The biggest issue with finding a good scope for both is you can find scopes that will focus to short ranges or you can find scopes that have good reticals for silhouette (crosshair with dot) but you can't find both in the same scope.

All the airgun-specific scopes I've seen have these complex tree reticals for field target or a maybe offer a simple, bulky, coarse duplex... neither of which are good for silhouette. I've met with representatives of some of these airgun scopes makers (Hawke, etc.) and begged them to make a crosshair/dot but none have to my knowledge.

I have three different scopes on my three silhouette air rifles. The TX200 has a Leupold M8 24X (crosshair, 1/8 MOA dot) that I modified the AO to focus 20-45 yards. The HFT-500 has a Weaver T-24 (crosshair 1/2 MOA dot). The Anschutz SuperAir 2002 has a Sightron Big Sky 6-24X (crosshair 1/2 MOA dot). If you can find a Sightron Big Sky (discontinued for a while now) that's the best one since it focuses to 10 meters right out of the box.

Good luck.
