FX Crown MKII is an air rifle made by FX Airguns. Capable of firing many calibers, it’s a go to airgun nowadays. From look to performance, FX Crown got everything. FX Crown MKII GRS Green Mountain Laminate is one of the coolest looking guns like ever. While it’s merely my subjective opinion, one thing we can agree is how good this gun is.
To make this gun perform the way it should, you need to pair a riflescope with it. There are plenty of FX Crown scopes available on the market. But all of them are not the best scope for FX Crown. How do you find the best one?
Well, that’s where we come in. Allow us to help you choose the next scope for your FX Crown MKII. Without further ado, let’s get this party started.
Best FX Crown Scopes
1. Vortex Diamondback 6-24X50 Tactical FFP Riflescope
Diamondback is one of the most well-known scope from Vortex. Under this lineup of products, Vortex sells other hunting related products as well. Diamond 6-24×50 is a medium to long-range scope suitable for airsoft and hunting.
Constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum, this scope is here to last you for years. O-ring sealing makes sure this scope is 100% waterproof as well. You can use it in any weather condition you want. As there won’t be any moisture inside the scope, it’s also fog proof.
Crown MKII is a fairly powerful weapon. It can generate a hefty recoil. Thankfully, this scope is capable of holding strong against that recoil.
Fully multi-coated lenses with a glass etched FFP reticle, this scope is something for sure. Reticle is clear and visible in different lighting condition. It’s not the hardest to learn reticle either. In fact, Christmas tree reticles are easier to learn in my opinion. You can become very good at reading bullet drops.
Is this scope made for a specific caliber?
No, it can handle many different calibers like a champ. There is no official rating regarding a caliber.
Can you use it with a bolt action rifle?
Yes, you can certainly use it with a bolt-action rifle.
What is the recommended height with a bolt-action rifle?
Depends on what kind of gun you have. A medium ring is more than enough with a Savage 10 or Ruger.
2. Vortex Optics Viper HS-T 6-24X50mm SFP Riflescope
Viper and Diamondback, two prized possession of Vortex. Under the Viper banner, Vortex sells a lot of hunting equipment as well. Viper HS-T is a medium-range SFP riflescope for airsoft guns and hunting rifles.
This riflescope is made from aluminum. Lightweight and durable material that is used on almost every type of scopes (except some night vision ones). It’s not too big either. Perfect size to pair with a bolt action rifle. As this scope has O-ring sealings, it’s waterproof completely. It is also shock and fog proof at the same time.
To help you see better, Vortex coats the pair of lenses multiple time with different chemicals each time. It increases the brightness of the scope and makes it much more resilient towards dirt and scratches. It gets extremely bright in low-light condition as well. Advantage of using high-quality glass that is Vortex known for.
Packing a good amount of adjustment knobs, they are useful for hunting, tactical shooting, or airsoft shooting.
Is this scope capable of holding zero?
Yes, it can hold zero quite well.
Does this scope come with sunshade?
Yes, it comes with a pair of sunshade.
Is the tube actually 30mm or bigger?
It is 30mm. Not a mm bigger or shorter. You can use 1” mounting rings with ease.
3. Vortex Optics Strike Eagle 5-25×56 FFP Riflescope
America’s pride and honor. The mighty Eagle made by Vortex. Vortex Strike Eagle is a great FX Crown scope. It’s one of the best even. You might not know, but it’s one of the very first scopes that we reviewed here.
Like all other Vortex scopes, this one is made with high-quality aluminum as well. The same type of aluminum that you see on 1000$ or more expensive scopes. When it comes to build quality, Vortex doesn’t joke around. Besides that, this scope is 100% water and fog proof. To help you fire .22 LR or bigger shots, this scope is also shock proof.
First focal plane reticle helps a ton while aiming. It’s a big scope. Objective lens is 56mm. Fully multi-coated lens gathers a ton of light to help you see better through the scope. Multi-coating also increases the strength of the glass and protects it from scratches.
Does this scope come with sunshade?
It comes with rubber sunshade inside the package.
Does it come with mount?
No, you will need to purchase your own mount depending on the gun you are using. You will need 34mm rings.
How far can you see through it?
You can easily see through 1000 yards or more accurately. Can you shoot that far? Well, that will depend on the gun and caliber you are using. With the right gun, you can certainly use it for long-range hunting.
4. Athlon Midas TAC 6-24×50 First Focal Plane Riflescope
Named after the king Midas, Athlon had some justification to do. Will your gun turn to gold by installing this scope? Of course, not. But it will be a totally different gun that will help you shoot better. Make a better hunter out of you. Totally justified name in my opinion.
Athlon is mainly known for their flagship scopes. You will be glad to know; this scope uses the same materials as those flagship scopes. The same lightweight aluminum with water, fog, and shockproof construction.
Lenses of this scope are fully multi-coated to provide best performance. Unlike cheap scopes where you see the lens act a bit sus and show too much red or too much yellow, you will see clear picture of what you are aiming at. With 100% color accuracy.
TAC is an FFP scope. Meaning, reticle of the scope is on first focal plane. It zooms in the reticle as you increase magnification of the scope. Really neat feature to have with sniper rifles. Reticle is clear and visible.
Does this scope use HD glasses?
Yes, it uses HD glasses for improved low-light performance. The glasses are Advanced fully multi-coated. Athlon’s process to make the glass even better.
Are the adjustments of this scope accurate?
There is no pushover on the adjustment knobs. You will get exactly the same measurements you are dialing in.
Where is this scope made in?
Athlon has factory in both Japan and China. Most of their scopes comes from China while some from Low factory in Japan.
5. Athlon Argos BTR 6-24X50 First Focal Plane Riflescope
Argos BTR is another great scope for Crown MKII. It’s made by Athlon. The same brand known to provide some great flagship scopes for sniper and AR rifles.
This waterproof construction is made from aluminum. As the name suggests, it has argon purging inside. Argon purging makes a cylinder immune to moisture. As there is no moisture, there won’t be any fog involved. Housing is durable enough to withstand torture of much powerful sniper rifles.
Lenses of this scope is advanced fully multi-coated. This process of coating is patented to Athlon. They are the only one to use this term. To put it simply, they coat it with extra layers of chemicals to make the HD glasses perform even better under different lighting condition.
First focal plane reticle is a treat to watch. On top of that, you got the APMR FFP MIL reticle. One of the best.
What height ring should you use with this scope?
Mostly depends on your gun. Medium height ring should be viable in all sort of guns. But some may require low.
Can you adjust the parallax of this scope?
Yes, it’s 10 yards to infinity.
Will this fit on a FX Crown MKII?
Yes, it will fit a FX Crown.
How To Choose The Best Scope For FX Crown?
You need to keep some basic things in mind while purchasing the scope. They are viable while buying any scopes.
Aluminum quality varies from models to model. While some use high-end aluminum others use low-end. Anodization can make a scope look and feel better as well. It’s a good idea to grab a scope that has durable enough housing to hold the lens for years.
You will see through those lens for a long time. If those lens aren’t clear and color accurate, you won’t feel good looking through them. Lens coating and lens clarity is a huge concern while purchasing a new optic.
Everything will depend on this. If you have the budget to have buy the most expensive scope on the market, no one’s going to stop you. But if you have the budget to buy an entry level scope for a small amount of money, no one will stop you either. Play around your budget and find the one that doesn’t stretch your budget too much.
One of the key part of a scope is the weight and weight distribution. A heavy scope will make your gun feel imbalanced. Weight distribution won’t feel nice. You will need a lighter scope for better weight distribution.
Having too many options is not a good thing always. It creates more confusion. That’s why I tried my best to help you find the right scope for your Crown. A crown befitting the king.
All of the scope mentioned here are some of the best medium-to-long-range scope you can buy on the market currently. Not only they support FX Crown, they also support plenty of other rifles. Including big-game hunting one.
Like I mentioned before, grab the one that fits your budget and suits your playstyle. Just because it’s expensive, it might not suit you or fulfill your needs. Grab the one that’s going to do both of those. Till next time, happy camping.
