Looking for a new scope for a RWS 34 Panther .22 cal. Something like 3-9x 40mm or 4-12x 40mm. Will be used for targets and small game. Looking for something not extremely expensive, but something that will hold up for many years.

I purchased a Center Point 3-9x 32mm last fall. Shot a few hundered rounds with it and it broke down. Sad part about it was that it came highly recommended by Pyramyd Air Gun Mall. That's the last time I take their advice, and the last time I buy a Center Point.

I have ordered air guns and supplies from Pyramyd Air several times. They are not very good regarding scopes.
I would look at any of these Weavers.
Remember to always use a stop block with all springers. Your scope will move without one. BKL makes a good one as does B-Square.

Have you thought about a Hawke Air Max 4-12X40?
You might have not heard of this Brand. They make some of the best glass
for air guns. Since my Legend crapped out on me on my gas rammed HW80,
I went to the Hawke line of scopes. Much clearer, brighter, and much sharper
around the edges. Etched reticle so no more broken cross hairs and the Hawke brand can
handle ALL recoil from the hardest recoiling air guns. Since I mounted my Hawke on the HW80, no more broken scope.
This is a target that I shot with one of my Hawkes.
30 Yards, ten shots from my gas rammed Stingray .22.
For the money this line of scopes can't be beat.
Take a look at them,

EXPOSO: How much does the Hawke Air Max 4-12x 40mm cost. Looks like a nice scope.

The Air Max is a great scope. I'm glad that the Legend crapped out, if not I wouldn't have found out about this scope.
In fact, the Legend didn't even last 100 shots before it died. The Hawke is now well past 2000 shots and still zeroed. And it's a hell of a lot cheaper than the Bushnell.
This is it on my gas rammed HW80.
You won't be disappointed if you get one. And the warranty is just as good as bushnell. I made sure before I got my Hawkes.
