Is this a suitable scope for air rifles?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

After recently selling my rimfire, I now have a vertually brand new and unused Vortex 3-12x42 HP scope left over. And I'm just checking If you guys think that this scope would be suitable to use on a legal limit air rifle. Due to the fact that the parallax Is set from 30 yards to Infinity.


Opinions please lads :

30yrds to infinity should be fine for an air rifle - test it on lower mag and see what happens. 

 .......... it's a decent scope so you might get less range on lower mag.

Just give it try at "inanimate" targets on an air rifle at the distances that you will be shooting at? I don't think the scopes that we used to have years ago were air rifle "specific" but still performed.
