    The Hawke scopes are fantastic value for the money!

    I won't look past them for my needs!

    I've found the same issues with Hawke scopes as I found with Tamron and Vivitar photographic lenses.; the glass is fine but the mechanics are sadly lacking. Admittedly I haven't ever owned a high end Hawke scope-and never would because of my experiences with the cheaper ones.

    Unhappy

    Had a Hawke Sport HD 4x40 mil-dot on my "95k/.177" and the scope gave in to the whiplash in the end, good sight picture, reasonable build quality but I thought these things were supposed to be springer rated after all it was mounted via a "Dampa Mount" !!!

    Just got a Hawke panorama ev 4-12x50 ao and replacing Nikko Stirling equivalents and I am very happy with them. Will eventually be looking for mtc scope as friends rate them but for the prices I'll stick with my Hawkes for now

    hawke scopes

    I have just put a hawke panorama 4x12x40 scope on my Weihrauch 98k it has very sharp optics, will have to see if it stands up to the recoil, never had trouble with my other hawke scopes but they were on pcp rifles.

    I have to agree with you on Hawke. Bought a 3x9x40 sport hd for 40.
    I had to adjust the parallax down a bit to 45yards to suit my needs
    Cant knock it for the money

    It's often said that their lower range scopes are very good for the money, but that their more expensive stuff isn't as good as similarly priced competition.

    Vantage

    Has anyone reviewed the new Vantage Range; on first impressions they look really well made and the glass seems crisp...
    Thoughts?

    Use a couple of Hawke scopes myself and find them spot on for .22 air, .22LR and 17HMR shooting. Good value for money.

    I've had a 3-9x40 vantage scope and honestly its one of the best scopes I've had, very well built fairly light weight and very good glass for the money

    Re

    Thanks guys; they do seem very good for the money, the 3-9x40 is only 50 with the mounts.
    I was going to buy another MTC but the price has gone up a lot over the last 6 months with no real explanation to why..
