1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Is there any information on just how compact and light they will be, or performance compared to current scopes?

    Have they got them all on there now mate? I saw a 3-12x50 compact advertised a while ago but nothing about it on their site. Noticed a few changes to some so wonder if the online brochure is still being updated. Im not a massive hawke fan but i have looked through an airmax and liked the reticle. I may possibly go for the 44mm compact model for my mfr.

    Theyre doing the compact in a 6-24x50. Its 2.6 inches shorter and 3 ounces lighter than its comparative full sized 6-24x50 airmax according to the brochure. Also do a 4-16x44 compact and a 3-12x40 compact. All side focus.

    Cheers mate, first time i looked there said a 3-12x50 compact was available, then it disappeared. Must have been wrong and they changed it. The 4-16x44 compact looks interesting though.

    I think I will stick with my Airmax. you are saving 100 grams ish and 2.5 inches. plus it doesn't come with a sunshade or metal lens caps.

    Its pretty poor if they dont come with the same extras as the normal airmax sf models. Though the comparative model is £50 cheaper. Thats maybe why if they havent got the extras. I never use sunshades but do like the screw in flip ups. Costly buying those as extras.

    According to the Hawke website the flip up covers would be £40 for a set.

    Yeah but if you bought all the extras, sidewheel,sunshade, pointer and flip ups it all mounts up. I still fancy a look at one but think ive made my mind up what i want. A little falcon s8i 1-8x24. Had one before and its a cracking scope.
