The trophy 4-12x40 with DOA600 reticle looks nice but do they survive the recoil of heavy springers such as a Patriot, D460 or Gamo Hunter Extreme?

Thanks

hey-Hey!!!,
I got a 4-12x40 Trophy XLT to mount on my RX2 20 cal. It is shooting 22.8 FPE and it wrecked the scope. It was nice while it lasted though. Got all my money back and began a bit of a scope quest...not quite feeling like spending a mint...
cheers,
Douglas

the accushot 3-12x44 swat scope on my hw90s my .25cal. has a accushot 3-12x44 swat w/the glass etched reticle ,i payed 189.00 for it but they discontinued it but you can get it now at optics planet for 139.00
on my .22 hw90 i have the same scope but it's the compact version 109.00 which has a wire reticle they've both been problem free from day 1 the compact has seen probably 1500 pellets and the std. version has probably seen 1000 pellets .
just my .02 cents

of my RX2's in .22 caliber and they've held up just fine. No complaints here, for me they're the perfect set up......jmho.

OOOOOOps, my bad, these are the older 4x12x40 Trophys'.

JC, I have a bushnell trophy 3x9x40 DOA 600 on my on my hw80 .22 cal and it is working out nicely, before I had it on my Beeman gold finger .20 cal and it worked great on that rifle.
I bought it from one of our fellow yellow members for a great price here in the yellow classifieds.
