I had a Weaver Rimfire Classic scope on a rimfire, then moved to a springer, then moved to a 7.62x39 centerfire rifle. This last rifle has a lot more kick than the rimfire and springer and the crosshairs broke today while shooting it. This surprised me as I thought a springer rated scope meant it was really tough. Would you expect an air rifle scope to last on a 30 cal rifle?

the mainspring pushes the gun backwards because the piston is momentarily disconnected as the potential energy in the spring is released. The sudden compression of the air ahead of the piston pushes the gun forward causing whiplash recoil.
