Can I ask a pretty dumb question?

Well here goes, I bought a MTC scop and a Nikon pro staff scope, both very nice scopes, however I want to buy a scope that I can stick onto a springer with a pretty hefty kick, but I want it to last and I want to use if for HFT so that I can try it out.
I suppose I could risk one of the nice scopes but would be gutted if they broke because of the recoil.

All ideas welcomed.


Regarding scopes and springers, most modern scopes 'should' be able to handle the recoil, just make sure you get decent mounts preferrably with a recoil pin that engages in the gun cylinder.
Alternatively a quality 1 piece mount will do the job.
