Best FX Impact Scopes – [Editor’s Pick]

1. Vortex Diamondback 4-16×44 Tactical Riflescope

Starting the list with a bang. A great scope from a great series of products made by a fan-favorite brand. That’s right, I am talking about Vortex Diamondback here. The one we have here is the 4-16×44 FFP reticle version. You can choose from two available reticles. EBR-2C MOA or EBR-2C MRAD.

The construction of this scope is top-notch. It looks and feels much more expensive than it is. Good anodization does wonders. Vortex opted for high-quality aluminum alloy for the tube of this scope. This single-piece 30mm tube is purged with nitrogen entirely. Making the scope immune to moisture.

O-ring sealings prevent from water going inside the scope. It also holds the lenses better than many other scopes. Speaking of lenses, Diamondback packs lenses coated multiple times with different coatings. The glass used here is high-quality XD glass as well. Increasing the brightness of the scope and making it more comfortable to use under heavy sunlight or low light.

The reticle here is on the first focal plane. It zooms in as you magnify the scope. We are going to use this with an FX Impact MKII. A gun that can shoot long-range with ease. FFP reticle will do wonders with such a gun.

Will I get mounting rings with this scope?

You will need to mount rings on your own. Vortex sells them separately. Take the one that supports your gun.

2. Athlon Talos 6-24×50 Second Focal Plane Riflescope

A big scope for a big gun. Athlon Talos packs a huge objective lens that can gather light for days. Better light transmission means better imaging. That results in a better scope.

Athlon is known for making much more expensive scopes. With Talos, they showed they can make great budget scopes as well. Talos BTR is available with two reticles. Choose the one you are comfortable with.

The housing of this scope is made out of aluminum. Heat-treated single-piece aluminum was the best option Athlon could go for. It is also purged to have better resistance against moisture. Making it fogproof. It’s also shock and waterproof as well.

Making them an ideal choice for the wild. The Reticle of this scope is on the second focal plane. It won’t zoom in when you magnify the scope.

BTR is made out of machined aluminum and anodized to have a matte black finish. The single-tube design makes it a robust and rugged scope. It’s shock, water, and fogproof. Ensuring the highest quality of structural integrity, BTR is an easy choice to make when it comes to building quality alone.

To protect the lens even further, Athlon applies a coating called XPL. It protects the outside of the lens from dirt and accidental scratches.

Like all other scopes from Hawke, this one is made with aircraft-grade aluminum. The anodized finish of this scope is flawless as well. Mainly made to be paired with powerful guns, Sidewinder is more than capable of handling a heavy recoil. It’s also water, fog, and shockproof.

How To Choose The Right Scope For FX Impact?

There are a couple of things that you should keep in mind while searching for a new scope.

Build Quality

Make sure it has durable housing. Ideally, made from metal and not plastic. Plastic scopes can be good as well, but they are much easier to break and less tolerant to rain.


Weight plays a big role in decision-making. If the scope is too heavy, you might want to ignore that. Having a good weight-balanced scope is quite important for a good experience.

Lens Quality

The lens is what you will see through. If they are not up to the mark, you will have a terrible experience and end up with unwanted issues. That’s why make sure you are taking a fully multi-coated lens with no blur or artificial color tint present in the scope.


Always make up your budget before starting to search for scopes. You might want to increase or decrease your budget a bit depending on the choice. However, keeping a budget allows you to look for scopes that fit into your criteria.


MKII is a great air rifle. It’s popular for its versatility and sheer power. You will need a powerful scope to tame it. That’s why, I included some powerful and affordable scopes in the list here. All of the mentioned scopes are some of the best scopes in the market and the best scopes for FX Impact.

You can take any of those and have a great time hunting. All of them will perform equally well with any type of caliber you are planning to use them with.
