your not going to find the perfect gun so don't bother rattling your brain over it... :rolleyes:
because just when you think you've found it... another one will come along that you like/want... :lol:
just try and find a nice decent first airgun and go from there... 8)

Why not just have a standard 3x9 or 4x16 or whatever preferred magnification scope then add a mini red dot attachment above it? Atleast that way you have flexibility with your target acquisition

Ever try and get a good cheek weld with a optic that high? It would be more of a chin weld. OKAY for IPSC/3gun where it quick shooting. Not the best for precision shooting. Plus I don't think it would zero at 10M.

You dont think the rds can zero at 10m because of how high it is off the main scope? Yeah i didnt factor that in. When i used an aimpoint on my old airhawk, i was shooting with it at 10 -15 meter and cheek weld didnt seem to be that crucial but proper eye/head angle definitely was. At that distance though my red dot was kinda getting in the way of the target even at the lowest setting. Im part of this airgun group on FB and the fellow that admins the group has an AA S510 with a 4x16 and mini RDS
That he uses to go ratting in his local farms, seems to work for him, so i still feel like this set up would work for the right application

I mean you probably would need a MOA base, allowing the front of the reddot to drop, and the rear to lift up. Allowing you to shoot closer.

D&L and others have the MOA bases, 17.1 and 20.1 I think. These make it easy for close range zeros.
here's the 20.1moa version.

I have the 17.1moa and zeros at 10 yards or meters was easy, even with the springer.
