I think they are good for that but if in doubt, email them to get it first hand. From what I have heard their warranty is solid.

Pyramid Airgun is posting a disclaimer on all Vantage class scopes and from what I've read had many returned broken.

I'm running a no longer made Hawk 1" fixed 6x MAP reticle on a tuned RWS34/.22 and it's had no issues so far.

I ran a Hawk Vantage on a Ruger Airhawk and found it to be a waste of a good scope on a short range airgun. I put it on my 22-250 instead. Got a Leapers for my Airhawk instead in which I am very happy with. So I bought two more Leapers for my other two Airhawks. CHEERS!
