Trust me you want the 50mm anyway.  Even with the 50mm the scope is pretty much useless at 18 and 20x.  The eye placement is so critical it is almost impossible to get behind.  The slightest and I mean slightest movement of you eye and the image goes black.  Up to 16x it is a great scope, beyond that it is very lacking, and the 44mm would be even worse

I own both the 44 and the 50 and I haven't had any problems. I can shoot very confortably with the 20x on both my CZ-550 Varmint Laminated with the 44mm and from my Browning X-bolt with the 50mm


It is not a problem with the scope per say.  Just a problem when the exit pupil gets that small.  That tiny band of light coming through the scope is so small that it is only filling a small part of your pupil up with light.  So the slightest movement will move is light out of the center of your pupil causing black edges around the image.  Its just how they work.  WIth a smaller objective that exit pupil will even be smaller making the problem worse. 

Every scope I have ever owned over 16x has had a similar problem.  Some were worse than others, but it was apparent in them all.  High mag scopes are just not all they are cracked up to be.
