Hawke scopes strike an amazing balance between price and performance that's perfectly suited for airsoft sniping. Hawke is a well known UK based brand for hunting scopes, not some random Chinese company. These are in our opinion the best bang for buck scopes - period. Here's why:
rated for all calibers
shockproof. waterproof. fog proof.
exceptional clarity & eye relief
While this scope doesn't have all the bells and whistles, it has better optics than scopes in this price range, hands down, which is by far the most important part.
3-9x is a well suited magnification for airsoft. Most airsoft snipers play on around 2-4x magnification, only switching to higher magnifications for scouting purposes.
This scope comes with an illuminated (red / green)mildot reticle. While not as useful as in it's traditional manner, it's great for adjusting your shots during the game. Dots give you great reference for correcting for hop, elevation or wind.
Who this is for?
This will be a perfect scope not only for beginners who are just getting into airsoft sniping but also those who are looking to upgrade from a cheap no-name Chinese scope - it's only a bit more expensive than one, but will be miles better.
This will be also a significant improvement over the popular Novritsch 3-9x50 scope. That thing has horrendous eye relief which seriously hurts your ability to effectively use your gun. You will never want to go back after trying this one.
