    Is the Simmons 1.5-5x20 springer rated?

    I've got one of these scopes left from four I had. I'd like to put it on a springer, but don't want to wreck my last of these scopes. Does anyone know for sure if they're springer-proof?

    I imagine not only springer rated, but filled with air from the mouth of Zeus himself, and will also make you irresistible, increase your wealth and fortune - such is the Magical Quality of the WTC !!
    If I'm selling something I might take unopened pellets I shoot for a swap instead of money if items are below £50

    Thanks to PCPShooter and Les Allam - that's what I was hoping!
    I'm going to put it on a Webley Longbow I've had refinished and sorted out internally.

    I've used them on springers without issue.

    Thanks to all who've replied - I now feel happy to put it on the Longbow.

    I agree have had them on all my springers including the cheap scope killing bsa lightnings , think they were originally designed for solid slugs from a 12g for boar shooting .
