that will Parallax Down to 10yards?

I mean there's been Fixed 4x, 6x, 10x, 16x, 20x, 35x, 40x and 45x scopes that will focus to 10yards but 12x seems to be like trying to find a live Unicorn or Mermaid?!?!

Or do you guys now of one that exists?

Regards,

Tony

there's demand for the 4x, 6x, 10x(ok not really, I expect big demand for 10x with mildots!), 16x...admittedly I know why the 35, 36, 40 and 45 exist for BR but just seems odd that 12x for airgun use isn't there...

they have a really nice 10x fixed scope with MMD reticle scope. Actually they have a fixed 10x, 16x and 20x42 all with rear focus down to 10 yds. Looks like they are nice size for a good hunting scope. Looks like their highest end scopes. SIII model

I have only peeked through the one at Nationals. Hard to get a good feel of a scope without it being mounted to a gun or something... Expecially when you are looking through a 50x. Seemed like the Mildots were pretty big...? However, it was only about 2 or 3 minutes of handling time...

maybe its the same one that got auctioned? It looked nice from what I saw but I didn't sit and send a bunch of lead down range with it/ranging targets...
