I have one that came with no sights and want to scope it. I was looking at the bug buster compact and leapers 30mm compact. don't know if the 300 is hard on scopes since the action slides. I want one that wont fall apart in the near future. definately want a compact so I can load easily. only really interested in conventional scopes. no red dots and don't care if it lights up or not. thanks for replies in advance

Most of the scopes ive used aren't " springer rated " and have never had one fail on a 300s . And I swap scopes about once a month For around the same money I'd look at the Hawke vantage line

writes suggests a cheaper scope will do the job.
I have a Hawke .22 WMR which has beautifully clear glass, a little dearer than what Joe suggests. It too would suit very well on the 300S. Kind regards, Harry.

A BugBuster on my mini and a Mueller 8-32X44 target dot on my FWB300S. I'm thinking of swapping them. Had no problems with either.

here's what I bought "per" several recommendations, and I love it! Awesome little
scope for the money $150, target dot reticle for precise shooting. Nikon 3-9-40 EFR
AO to below 10 yards, I think mine goes down to 7 yards on 9 power, a little closer
on lower powers.

mounted on my Diana 75



The glass is close to my Sightrons to my eyes. I also removed that EFR sticker on
the back, I think it looks better without it.

Ya can't go wrong with this scope, and if for some reason it's not for you, they'll
resale fast.

I plan to replace the 6x BugBuster as I can't really see wine corks very clearly at 50 yards with it. I must say, it's perfect for indoors, & very nice for outside out to about 35-40 yards. Since my "Beater" didn't come with sights, the BugBuster really came in handy.

The Legend on my hot shooting 300SU is nice, but I find the reticle a little too thick.

I think I'd prefer an older Leapers / Center Point 3-9x32 that still focuses down to 5 yards over the 6x BugBuster for my "Beater" mini 300S Match, & maybe one of my MTC Mamba Lite scopes, or maybe one of my SWFA 10x scopes, for the hot shooting 300S Universal (does a fair bit over 700 fps as received from Jim Edmondson).

I use the Hawke Airmax 4-12x40 AMX on all 5 of my FWB 300 springers. Really like the fine AMX crosshairs for these accurate shooters.

in offset BKL-302 30mm rings. The offset rings allow for placing the scope objective bell forward of the breech. Have the prototype of Hector's Nautilus side wheels on the optic to shoot OFT. It melds nicely....
