I've a Hawke Night Eye 3-9X50 with an illuminated reticle ! Does the job perfectly and rarely need to go past 6x mag ! Decent price too I picked it up for €130

Highly recommend it

I've a Hawk Sport HD with IR 4-12x50 does the job perfect, good under the lamp too at night and holds zero well. Don't over spend or over scope is my opinion.

I'd talk to Paul O'Halloran in Drangan. Think he was quoting about 550 for the same rifle.
