Thinking that should be fine as I didn't get any black cycle eye when shooting my recoiless (due to sledge system) springer FWB300SU when using the diopter rear sight with rubber eye piece...

And don't think a normal springer will jump backwards more than the one with the sledge system... If so, that springer really needs a tune?! ;)


Id suspect that many will get scope eye, as springers tend to like a looser hold. Actually those lead sleds, actually aid in destroying scope more. Because you are trying to contain energy, that wants to escape. It is like holding in a sneeze in you mouth, rather then sneezing in your arm. Keeping it closed and, causes pressure else where's, I normally get popped ears, or headache after. So I just let them rip.


What I am thinking is you shoulder the rifle, trigger hand holds the grip, maybe very loose hold or just a support with the other hand under the stock forearm... When the gun fires, your trigger hand and shoulder are taking the recoil, even a loose hold on everything, they are preventing the stock and the action move backwards too much...

But on a recoiless sledge system FWB300, you are holding the stock same as a normal springer, but the action is moving backward on the sledge when fire to absorb the recoil instead of passing it to the stock and the shooter ... Plus I am using a diopter sight, which on mine is about one inch 'eye relief '. Not accurate usage here as a peep sight have no eye relief and you can put your eye next to the peep if you want... The one inch on mine just the length of the rubber eye piece...

And as I didn't have been hit by the stuff on the top of the moving action, I think it's okay for using a scope with short eye relief...

I think the factory not recommend the 10x one on springer is for the design to achieve the bigger power has weaker shock resistance ability?!

Need someone's real world experience to chime in.... :axe:


Maybe you be lucky. But not all springers are the same. If the business says it's not recommended, there is probably a legal possibility. Remember your Eye brow pertruds out more than your eye ball. That what gets wacked with the scope.

The eye relief on the 10x is 0.7" (1.778cm), that does not leave much margin for error with rifle hold and recoil control. I guess I'm conditioned to want lots of eye relief because I have a 338win and a 300win in the safe, they teach you to respect eye relief and proper technique.


Hmm! Yes, these two opinions counts~

Yeah, my rifles are lower power (maybe say not power enough for a scope eye as I need a PAL for them already...) and tuned well (by the experienced previous owners and my slow work)... So they really not providing some 'hazard' type recoils... But I did watch YouTube videos before that ppl 'throwing' the gun to their head...

They would be excellent scopes for guns that have tight loading ports. But I'll be curious of the clarity of the optic. As normally short tubes one sacrifice clarity, for size.

They are very clear for such a short scope and very nice wide angle view. You'll be surprised how nice the glass is, if you get a chance to look through one.
My shipment came, so I've got more again. 8)

A friend brought over the 10x40 and it was brilliant and looked to be VERY well made. All metal & comes with several mounts.
Well packaged as well - beautifully made.
