Guys,

Would want a high end scope recommendation, looking at Diavari from Zeiss, Leupold, Swarovski and Sightron.  Now here's the kicker, I have a very high end Daystate Airwolf Tactical MCT pcp but want to use the scope for target and also if I get a rifle later I would want the scope to work on both.  It's the Bentley of air rifles... and awesome but I really wanted to see if the high end scopes will work well.  

Thanks,

TBonez

For high end air rifle target, I would suggest the S&B PMII 12-50x56. I believe the scope was originally intended as an air rifle scope as you can even have the option to have a lower parralax adjustment range.

A friend uses this on his PCP, and his long-range comp rifle. The glass is awesome!

I have a March 3-24MOA/MOA on the way.  My wife did not buy me this one, but she did say "get whatever you want..."  Good enough for me...

I think the S&B goes down to 10m which is 10.963 yards. Just becareful of what scope you select as I hear that some air guns can destroy a scopes internals.

Disregard my last comment. didn't realize you had mentioned a PCP. No recoil issue there.

Wow that thing is liek 4K.  Also, it is the scope being made by S&B for the Military, they were awarded a 32M contract to make these scopes.
