Hawke Optics engineered their 3-9x40 Airmax AO Riflescope to increase the accuracy of airguns by employing a reticle that is specifically designed for airgun use. The duplex ranging reticle is based on a mil-dot system and provides multiple aiming points on all axes to help compensate for the notoriously-wobbly air pellet trajectories. Utilizing the reticle's aiming points allows you to adjust your shot quickly without having to manipulate the scope's windage and elevation turrets.
The scope's 40mm objective draws in considerably more light than smaller-objective optics to enhance its low-light performance such as at dawn, dusk, or in heavily-canopied woods. Short covered turrets give this optic an low profile with reduced snag possibilities. Capped turrets help guard against accidental adjustments, while its fast-focus collar and zoom ring allow you to quickly adapt to rapidly changing situations. Complementing the performance of the scope is a lightweight and durable anodized aluminum housing, with a 1" one-piece maintube that is nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be water and fogproof.
