Default [Problem Solved] Inexpensive airgun scope recommendations.

Any decent airgun scopes in the $20-$30 range?

I hear regular firearm scopes will be demolished by the recoil profile of a springer.

Check your local Walmart or Big5. They may have some airgun scopes.

Supposedly regular scopes only are built to take a firearm's rearward recoil and not the forward snap of the spring piston.

My Beeman spring pistons... Beeman R8 with Beeman SS-3 scope and Beeman R1

HaHa, are you practicing comedy in the air gun forum?

If I was to go cheap for an air gun scope, I'd get this one,

If you want a good one, this is what I'd get.

Now im mostly PCP so no recoil to deal with I use only Hawke scopes. I have one Spring in my collection, a Beeman HW97K in Blue. Low powered not too much recoil. I have a Hawke Airmax mounted on it.
