Will Any Scope Fit On Any Air Rifle?

When it comes to air rifles, the scope you choose can make a significant difference in your shooting experience and safety. But can any scope fit on any rifle?

No – Not all scopes can fit on any rifle and some could be dangerous. It’s crucial to consider the specific features and requirements of your air rifle before making a purchase.

The first thing to consider is the type of air rifle you have:

For instance, some break barrel rifles have a hinge point where they “break” (snap in half), and a large scope might interfere with this action. If the air rifle scope extends past this point, it can get damaged when you break the rifle.

Another important factor is the recoil of the air rifle:

Some scopes have zero eye relief, meaning they sit very close to your eye when shooting. While this might seem convenient, it can be dangerous with a recoiling gun. The recoil can potentially cause the scope to hit your eye or even crack your skull, leading to serious injuries.

So in summary – not all scopes are compatible with all air rifles. It’s essential to consider the specific features of your air rifle, such as the hinge point and recoil, when choosing a scope.
