Mount rings to fit it onto a rifle ARE NOT included

Innovative reticle with aim points out to 100 yards/91 metres. The reticle is paired to Hawkes vari-speed technology allowing any bow speed to be dialled in to create unsurpassed accuracy. Using the magnification as a calibration tool, shooters can achieve even 10 yard/9 metre increments on virtually any bow

Shotgun users - copied from Gunmart review
The Hawke XB30 compact 2-8 x 36 SR sight is primarily aimed at the crossbow or bow hunting fraternity, as it uses Hawke’s excellent ballistic correction reticle. This can be used very precisely via their app from the website to correlate the exact aiming marks for the speed of your projectile. On a 12g slug gun, that’s a great asset, as it allows correct hold over at extended ranges.
The Compact has a 2-8x magnification range, ideally suited to the shotgun market and range usage. The lenses are very good and are all multi-coated with 14 layers and the wide angle achieves 65.7 - 16.4ft view at 100-yards dependent on magnification used. It’s a compact scope at 10.1-inches long and weighs 435-grams and has a 30mm one-piece aluminium tube. The scope ring spacing is a bit tight, as expected, so a one-piece rail mount is best.
You have precise, ½ inch adjustment clicks, with a parallax free image at 50-yards. The glass-etched reticle is very clear and illuminated by a saddle mounted rheostat with 5 brightness levels and a choice of red or green illumination too. You also have a locking speed ring on the eyepiece that is used to adjust for the speed of an arrow at 250 - 475 fps, but on 12g or .410 slugs, you can set to suit your own ballistics via the Hawke app. It is a super compact scope with very good optics and a superb reticle for slug use and only costs £229.99, a bargain!
