Best FX Wildcat Scopes – [Editor’s Choice]

1. Athlon Midas BTR GEN2 HD 4.5-27×50 Riflescope

Even though it’s named after King Midas, your hand won’t turn to gold if you touch this. But it will make your rifle golden for sure. After it enables the full potential of your rifle, you can call it a golden goose.

That’s good and all, how durable is this scope? Will it be able to hold against FX Wildcat? Yes, it will hold against Wildcat quite easily. The scope is made out of durable aluminum. The same type of aluminum you see in much more expensive scopes. It’s shock, water, and fogproof. You don’t need more resistance in a riflescope.

The lenses are fully multi-coated for clarity and brightness. It’s extremely bright in awkward lighting conditions. That’s something not a lot of scopes are capable of doing. While it’s not a night vision riflescope, it can sure hold well in dim light.

Wildcat needs a scope like this to go wild in the wild. That’s a lot of wilderness. Jokes aside, it’s a great scope for FX Wildcat. One of the best. It deserves the recognition and fame the reviewers gave to it.

Does this scope come with mounting rings?

It doesn’t.

How many reticles to choose from?


Where is this made?

It’s made in the USA

2. Vortex Crossfire II 2-7×32 Scout SFP Rifle Scope

Just like you see the UTG on almost all of our riflescope review posts, you must have seen this one coming as well. Just a couple of days ago we made a drastic claim that Crossfire II is one of the best hunting riflescopes ever made. Do we still stand behind it? Yes, wholeheartedly.

This riflescope from Vortex is a treat, to say the least. Crossfire II is one of the best scopes for beginners. It’s super easy to set up and super easy to tune in with your FX Wildcat. You won’t face that big of a hurdle from buying to using this scope.

The scope is solid. Made out of aircraft-grade aluminum. The same kind you see in high-end Vortex and even higher-end riflescopes like Zeiss or Ravin. It’s an anodized matte black color to look classy. There is a little bit of branding near the eyepiece but it’s not distracting.

The lenses are fully multi-coated and they perform flawlessly. As there won’t be water or moisture present in the scope, there is no chance of fogging either. Zero will stay the way you intended to. Recoil won’t be able to move adjustments at all.

Does this scope come with mounting rings?

It doesn’t. Vortex sells them separately.

Is this scope good for tactical shooting?

It can do tactical shooting. I wouldn’t call it best for tactical shooting though. You just want to utilize the maximum magnification. It’s just a feeling. Yeah, let’s go with that.

Is a sunshade included?

No, it’s not. While purchasing the scope, you will notice that people often bought sunshades and rings from Vortex alongside the scope. You should do that too.

3. Athlon Optics Talos BTR 4-14×44 FFP Riflescope

Are you looking for an FFP reticle riflescope with high magnification for your FX Wildcat? Then you will love this scope from Athlon. Athlon optics are known for their mid-range to high-end budget riflescopes. They are a very well-known company.

Besides being a waterproof, shockproof, and fogproof riflescope, this scope also features a fully illuminated reticle. The reticle is visible from dawn to dusk. Anytime anywhere, the reticle will lead you to victory. It’s not that hard to understand reticle either. Sure, you could take your time to master it and make complete use of it, but you could just use it like nothing happened.

The lenses are fully multi-coated. As the reticle is in FFP, it magnifies alongside the scope magnification. Even at maximum magnification, the reticle or the scope has no distortion visible to the eye. The eye relief is quite generous from Athlon as well. Talos is one of their prized possession. It clearly shows why Athlon holds this scope so dearly.

It’s a perfect match with Wildcat. That’s all you need to know before deciding on purchasing it.

Does this scope come with mounting rings?

You will need to purchase rings on your own.

Where is this scope made?

It’s made in the USA.

Is there any sunshade available for this scope?

Yes, Athlon sells it themselves. But it’s not included for free.

4. UTG 4-16X44 30mm AO Mil-Dot Scope

This is not the first time we are featuring a UTG scope, it won’t be the last either. If the product is good, you will hear people praising it highly. If the product is bad, you will see people bashing it harshly as well. In our case, it’s the former. This is a good product made by a good brand that is gaining popularity among hunters as the years goes.

This scope is made out of durable aluminum. It’s lightweight and rugged. The exterior anodization is flawless and it will protect your scope from accidental drops and scratches. The recoil pattern of Wildcat won’t be able to harm this scope in any way.

As this scope is internally purged with Nitrogen, it is fogproof. Besides that, it is also 100% waterproof and shockproof. Talk about hitting bars in a good way. The lenses of the scope are fully coated as well. They are extremely bright and clear. There is no distortion or chromatic aberration present on the scope.

It’s good for tactical shooting and excellent for hunters. It’s kind of made for rifles like FX Wildcat. You will need something wild like UTG to tame the wild cat.

5. Burris Fullfield II 3-9×40 Hunting Scope

Welcome back a reappearing guest. Burris FullField II hunting riflescope is loved by the community. The word obsessed suits this love better. FullField II has gotten nothing but high praise since it was first released.

This scope from Burris is made out of alloy steel. Just like their expensive scopes, this scope is shock, water, and fogproof. You don’t need to worry about the weather or conditions you are bringing this sight into.

The lenses here are coated for better performance. And they deliver better performance. At this price point, you won’t see this much brightness and clarity on a scope. That’s something a lot of companies trying to pull off over the years. Some succeeded some didn’t. But FullFielld II has been fulfilling the desire of many newbie hunters.

It’s a good match with the FX Wildcat. It’s not too big, it’s not too heavy, it has a good amount of magnification and a very easy-to-understand reticle.

Things To Keep in Mind Before Buying

Wildcat may not be a wild animal. But it’s nothing less than a deadly weapon. This air rifle can make a regular scope look like garbage with the recoil hit and thrashing it puts the scope through. That’s the reason why you should keep a couple of things in mind before pulling your trigger on a riflescope.

Build Quality

If the scope is not durable, I don’t want it. That’s the philosophy you should follow. That philosophy will lead you to a scope that will last you a long time. Trust me on this, scope build quality matters.

Lens Quality

When buying a pair of new glasses, the priority is how clear it is. Secondly how durable it is. Those reasons are applicable in a scope lens as well. If the lens is not clear or durable, what will you do with it? It might fail on mid-hunt. Nobody wants that.


Hunting scopes often pack a ton of magnification. But do you need that much magnification? Often, the answer is no. Not a lot of people require tons of magnification in their scope. But if you do, then you shouldn’t hesitate to take a higher magnified scope.


See, that wasn’t hard, was it? If you read through the entire post, then you already know which is the best scope for Wildcat for you. It’s you who pull the triggers. Me, just a guide that helps you choose the right trigger.

Enough philosophy, let’s talk real business. No matter what scope you choose from the list, don’t feel bad for choosing this over that. All of them are good and serve a different purpose. My reason for including this many scopes was to serve as many types of hunters as possible. I hope I succeeded in that. Bye for now!
