    Remember that air rifles recoil in reverse and will tear up a normal rifle scope over time. An air rifle scope, on the other hand, will handle the recoil of a 22LR.

    I just bought a new Leupold VX-3 target scope in 6.5-20x with an adjustable objective and target turrets. In the gold ring around the objective, it is marked "air rifle" and my contact at Leupold told me that all their better target scopes are built to be used with both types of rifles.
