Any suggestions for optics for a Gamo Whisper Cat 177? Break Barrel with 1300 FPS. looking for 10-50 yards. Something that can take the abuse from the break barrel. Thanks for any help.

Nikon Prostaff Target EFR 3-9x40 AO Matte w/ Precision Reticle. Specifically designed for air rifle application. Super clear glass, adjustable objective, and for under $200 w/ free shipping on Amazon Prime, its a great scope. I used one on my RWS model 34

I believe that all of the Hawke scopes are air gun rated too.

Here's a link to a you tube by Joe Rhea from the Yellow Forum (Air Gun Forum). The video link is in the first post by Rhea. 'Top 10 air gun scopes for $100.

So, Ishootforblood. since i wanted to post the same questions in two relevant sections you decide to make negative comments! You're right I copied and pasted the questions in case members might look in one or the other.

I've been pleased with the UTG 3-9x32 bug buster. I have it on my .177 Gamo Silent Cat.

These are the stock Gamo rings. The scope also comes with a beefy set of rings too. Yes it stays on zero as long as I'm not banging it around. For $75 on amazon, it's a bargain...

I second this opinion. I have the same one on my Crosman Vantage NP in .22 and it is great. I used the rings it shipped with and it works great so far. Got about 100 pellets through and it holds zero just fine.

This Nikon scope is nice. I have one on my Savage 22 bolt gun. Been wanting to get another for my RWS Model 48.

I suppose if you do not want to spend a lot on a scope, the Bug Buster will work. I have a UTG 3-9X32 1" Full Size Front AO Mil-dot Scope on it now, not really impressed with it, but it will do the job until I can upgrade to the Nikon.
