Hard to recommend without knowing the intended use. Regardless of what you want to use it for, be sure to get a spring gun rated scope. They cost more when you buy, but it is better than buying cheap and breaking them a few times before ending up with a scope that can withstand the recoil.

I like 4-16X scopes because of their versatility. Hawke and Discovery make some decent spring gun rated scopes.

As well, Leapers scopes are what I have on my springers, HW97's.
I am running 2 of these. Unfortunately, D&L are out of stock at this time.
I should mention at this time, that the shorter length scopes are more suitable
for the underlever rifles, due to the position of the loading port. A scope shorter than
13" is best.

I agree with Mac, intended purpose would help with the recommendations. I put a Hawke 4x16 40 Airmax on my tx for general use and works very well for that task. I chose that scope for the thin lines of the reticle which I love. No issues with access to the loading port.

Have the similar 4-12x40 AirMax on my Pro Sport. Although the scope was not choosed by me and just came with the rifle when I bought it, I love that scope too. In general I don't need very high power by just actually 8x will be good enough for my indoors shooting, I will pick the same scope again if I bought it by myself ~

I have a Discovery HS 4-14X44 SF FFP MIL Light-Weight 2018 Model 585g! from Wes on my TX200 with low rings. It works great and is springer rated. I think is a good fit for the TX200.

Here’s what I’ve got mounted to one of my guns and love it . https://airgunarcheryfun.ca/vector-mark ... cope-570g/
The only downfall is the 12yard focus. Great glass and reticle for the price not to mention the weight is very low.

If it does not specifically say, Spring gun rated, don't buy it. It will eventually loosen up and point of impact will start to wander. Don't throw your money away.

Take a look at this for $30 more. It is springer rated.

You need to first decide your budget. A simple email to the manufacturer with your intended use will get you confirmation of their warranty and if use on a spring rifle is acceptable.

I recently bought a Falcon Gen2 5-30 FFP scope. It has a 10 year warranty and is covered for use on a springer. I purchased a Hawke Sidewinder in the spring. It is lifetime warranty to the original purchaser and is springer rated. Vortex stated their scopes have a lifetime warranty.
