This is my latest and last video of the series. I just don't have enough first hand experience with the more expensive scopes to offer good opinions if I continue up in price . Hope y'all enjoy the last one .

the Hawke Airmax in the 30mm tube with side wheel focus. Uses the same side wheels as the Sidewinder ED 10x50. I have an 8x32x50 that has very sharp glass. The only thing I don't like is how you have to use a tiny hex key to re-set the turret to zero. I also have two Sidewinder 8x32x56. I like the optics and reticle (half mill dot). The clicks are somewhat mushy though. Not so on the Airmax.

To me there is no noticeable difference when compared to the Sidewinder in terms of glass, I like the AMX reticle better especially the stepless rheostat, the lens caps are great. Lpirrone hit the nail on the head, it is a pain to reset to 0. I never tried the ED version of the SW, but for the price difference as compared to the normal SW I would take the Airmax every time and I've had 3 Sidewinders already, just decided to try the Airmax last month.

But I haven't personally used one , and I was trying to stay on scopes I've owned or used . I am going to make one more video . Not gonna rank scopes but just list them ...500-1000$ that have the features air gun guys need . In that price range I've only owned a handful of scopes and don't want to just list preferences based on nothing
Too much of that going around already .

I have it on my Mutant. Fantastic scope for the money. The SWFA fixed power scopes are great for the money as well. Like the Sightron STAC choice as well. Another great scope for the money.

As a personal favorite, I think it's great that your not just making **** up, like you said there is more than enough of that on the internet already!

I have recently switched from a Zeiss Conquest 4.5x14x50 to the Sightron S-TAC for its added features, the optical clarity in my testing is exactly the same as the Conquest, but for $350.oo less.
For $469.oo and a lifetime warranty with Sightron's reliability record, I think it is a great value and it is what is on my personal Powertuned Cricket .25 Bullpup.

Thanks
