I received two scopes for testing. One is a
I have a Knight rifle which has two barrels a 45-70 and a 50 caliber inline muzzle loading barrel. I plan on using the scope on both barrels. I mounted the scope and started with the 45-70 using some
The other scope is an Extreme View Riflescope model HK5160 IREV which is also a 3 X 9 X 40. It also has a red or blue reticle besides the usual black and they showed up very well against various backgrounds. That enables you have the best color for the shooting conditions you might encounter. I mounted it on a
I returned the Winchester 7 mm-08 so a new scope the HK 5164 3 X 9 was put on a Ruger American which is a new model released by that company. It is a low cost rifle and bears no resemblance to the model 77. Anyway the rifle performed very well and if you want more info you can go to www.rugerrifles.com. The caliber chosen is the 30-06 and of course the scope performed to expectations, meaning that it was flawless and easy to sight in. Since I plan on keeping the rifle the scope will also remain with it as it will be my main hunting rig. I would reccomend the Hawke Panorama EV HK5164 in 3 X 9 for general hunting use. I did switch scopes from rifle to rifle as part of my test. The Hawke scope responded well. Through use on several rifles the Hawke have earned my trust and will be going on various hunting trips. this scope has red and blue illumination and is water and shock proof, making it more hunter friendly.
I transferred the scope from the Knight to a Circuit Judge rifle. It is a novel firearm well worth looking into if you want a 410 gauge shotgun and a 45 Colt round. Since you can use it for woods hunting I thought that the Hawke scope would be perfect for it. I wasn’t disappointed It will extract all of the accuracy potential that this rifle is capable of. I shot some 305 grain hollow base bullets in this rifle and they produced excellent accuracy for this type of rifle. The Eclips 30 1.5 X 4 with its large dot and wide field of view is a perfect match for the Circuit Judge and similar firearms. For more info on the Circuit Judge you can go to http://www.taurususa.com/. Deer Pass HK 3254 1.5 X 4 on Circuit judge. Perfect Combo Hawke scopes show their versatility by being useful on a verity of firearms. My view on the Hawke scopes is two thumbs up. They are a quality product well worth the price.
