rraju,
To mount on that air rifle you will need a good springer rated scope. Standard scopes will not work. I know this for sure that no gun dealer in Kolkata stocks springer rated scopes of any good foreign make. My advice would be to get one from abroad.

Cheers

TC

Hi raju,
> Yes - as TC says you have to fit a AR rated scope - as others will not hold up to an air rifle....
> Your best bet is to contact fellow IFGian "Rijo Joseph" on his PM and state your requirement....he is prompt & reliable...
> I have bought 2 scopes from him...
1. Centerpoint 2-7 x 32
2. Bushnell 4-12 x 40
> Both very good scopes - has served me well for the past 2 years
Good Luck
Briha

:agree:
I got one 3-9x40 AO-MD-IR leapers scope from Mr Joseph as Brihaji suggested & its working pretty good for me for last 6-8 months.
You can contact him by pm and ask for scope according to your requirement & budget.

Leapers scope is the best in terms of pricing, durability, quality & accuracy.

Hi Anil,
A nephew of mine has the same rifle and wanted a scope. Our fellow member Rijo Joseph helped me buy an excellent Bushnell 3-9 X 40 scope for it. With fake Bushnells flocking the local markets getting an original one would have been impossible without Rijo's help.

Sorry Anil. Want to make a correction here. It was a 4-12 X 40 AO (with a front focus ring) Bushnell. Marvelous clarity.

Thanks TC,
I'am new to the forum. I guess I don't have message rights. Can you guide me as to how I can contact Mr. Rijo Joseph.

Great EssDee,
I've had a couple of springers before. NX 100 scorpious .22 has virtuly no recoil as compared to springers. I guess installing a scope will give excellent results.
My shooting was quite erratic with springer but I am able to shoot a shoe polish can (small one) at 25 meters consistently.
Once I get my hands on a scope, I take help from you guys on how to mount and zero it. In the mean time, I hope Mr. Joshep will help me out.
Rgds
