Air handgun scopes from gun shops or online

Handgun scopes for airguns typically have to be purchased separately at gun shops. Air handgun scopes have only been on the market for a few years, with more gun shops supplying them lately because they have become more durable and longer lasting. Also, more gamers are switching from paintball to airsoft team games, so sales of all accessories are shooting up.

Air handgun scopes are built specifically for bbguns. The better scopes meant to withstand the wear of a magnum powered spring as well as heavy usage. Their life spans are getting longer and their prices are getting cheaper (always a good thing for the consumer!). Gun shops do stock optics, but you may have better luck finding a wider selection online or in a catalog.

What you should look for in handgun scopes in gun shops

When shopping for handgun scopes at local gun shops, there are several things you need to be on the lookout for. First off, you need to look at clarity and brightness. If you look through the viewfinder and cannot get a clear image out to a few hundred yards, then there is a problem. Purchase a scope based on your actual experience with your airgun. Don't go overboard with a fancy and expensive model unless you just want to and can afford it.

Handgun scopes can be extremely expensive. They often cost more than you paid for your air rifle. The nicer models can cost hundreds of dollars at some gun shops. They are not meant for beginner shooters, unless you have the means and know that you will continue with this sport for years to come.
