Hi All,

I recently purchased a Slavia CZ 630 from JayzDaMan, and I've enjoyed punching some paper with this niftly air rifle, I was able to get a dime-size groupin on it with the stock sights after some practice....but it's about time I mount a scope on it, and I was wondering if I can get some pointers on what people think would be the best scope for your money. I want something inexpensive, $100 or less, something I can mont on the rifle "out-of-the-box" without having to buy different mounts for it (can anyone tell me the type and measurements of the railmounts on the 630?). Any help is appreciated!

I have the Leapers 3-9x32 on mine, and these are the mounts you need - the dovetail is 14mm which is difficult to find proper fitting mounts to fit: ... Rings.html

I too have a Leapers that I swear by: ... AOIEW.html
Non-compact version goes for the same price I think....

I have the optional 80mm side wheel which really makes the scope a treat to use... ... SCP-SW080M

Other guys on the forum swear by Bushnell scopes, which are a bit more pricy and skimp on the bells and whistles, but from what I understand you still get what you pay for...

As for what to look for, there are 2 very important things when buying a scope for an airgun:

First, you will want to get a scope that is "Air Gun Rated" or "Air Gun Safe". Spring guns have a wonky "double recoil" that can break scopes designed for convential firearms. That being said, pretty much anything you find on an air rifle website will be airgun safe.

Second, you need to buy a scope with Adjustable Objective, which is usually listed as "A.O." on most websites. This is parallax adjustment: essentially the scope's ability to focus on nearby objects and still have high magnification levels. Some scopes do not include this and are set to to focus at 100yards, which makes them pretty much useless for smaller air rifles. You'll want to find something that's listed as having something like... "Parallax: 15yards to Infinity" or "6 yards to Infinity".

All that to say, the scopes listed above meet both of these criteria...

Lastly, as a side not, I would stay away from getting anything too big. I have a springer that's relatively similar to your Slavia, and very large scopes can make it a bit of a pain to load (they extend over the breech where you load the pellet). A compact scope may be better for ease of use, both for loading and for weight...

EDIT: totally didn't see you wanted to keep it under 100....

I have used scopes and red dots from these guys. Product is good, price is good, used on my sons airsoft and some of my co2 guns.
