1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    They're OK

    Not great at anything but OK at most.

    Pretty decent under a lamp if you plan on using one, and works well with night vision too.

    Not great in crappy light but not an issue if you mainly shoot in daylight or with a lamp.

    Thank's for that input, I am also looking at the Hawke Varmint side focus 3-12x44 half mil dot, just not sure what would be the better buy. The use as you say would be daylight or lamp. Thank's again. Bob.

    Is it side wheel focusing your after? Sidewinder 10x44 or Viper 10x44s are pretty good scopes at a decent price point with good reticles.

    Actually I quite like the Varmint - it's a surprisingly solid scope overall. Again, don't expect the earth but it's a very good all rounder without breaking the bank IMHO.

    The 10x44 suggestion above is a good one provided you can make that magnification work for you. It also depends on whether you can fit the scope on your gun without it interfering with things. My mate bought a 10x44 Viper and it caused him all kinds of aggravation on his HW77 by obscuring the loading port. He's a big lad with fingers to match and didn't much appreciate not being able to feed the gun because of the scope. Some break barrels can struggle with barrel clearance for the same reason, so check the physical size against your gun.

    More food for thought, just had a look at the Viper, interesting, going to have to look a little further into them. Thank's Mat.

    It will be going on my Ultra SE multi, so I can put the one I have on it now, back on the gun it came off. As you say fixed 10xmag may be too much. Atb. Bob.

    I use a hawke 10x44 sidewinder Bob,

    Good scope, and very much like the side focus, but not the best in low light and needs the help of a lamp:)

    I use an MTC Viper 4-16 and I have to say its a good scope. Low light is a bit down but not enough to worry me. Focus is crisp and pretty good for getting a rough idea of range to with in a few yards. The turrets are crisp if a little tight to push down to lock but the zero re set is perfect using a locking ring, in some ways its better than the allen key set up on more pricey scopes.
    I plan on buying the 10x Viper for my S410 in the next few weeks as to be honest I just dont use the zoom enough to warrent the extra cost. Most of what I do is 75 to 100 yards on paper and fixed 10x is perect for that.
