 The only air rifles that need air rifle rated scopes are the break barrel type. The break barrel type has a unique way of firing which causes recoil  switching from one direction to the other very quickly. Even holding to shoot a break barrel type airgun is different.
 I have used firearm scopes on all other types of airguns.

not all mind you but most all air rifles are  spring loaded.
Your old lever action daisy red rider  was one.
All of the mechanically compressed springs type need them.
The pre charged shouldn't.

On a side note did you know Louis the 14th had an air rifle?
And that Lewis and Clark had at least one on their trip?
Primarily for hunting small game to save their gunpowder for
more important issues.

Do you guys remember the ones used in India during WWI as sniper rifles. They were 9mm. I read about them in Guns & Ammo in the 1970s. Might want to look that up I'm sure there's a peace wrote about them on the net some where. I might haft to look that one up for my own self. (^h
If it's not broke don't try fixin it.
