    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.

    I have tried all sorts of gun scopes in my years from £400 ones down to £20 ones with all sorts of Fiddly settings different Magnifications. Range Finders on the Scope i could go on and on.
    But i have now reverted back to a scope that is very basic and it works better than any of the others and cost me......£60 a year ago.
    Its light and effective , no fiddling around once set up just through the scope line up the Mildot and fire!
    Things are now getting out of control with scopes with little gadgets here and there so by the time you go to shoot this scope that weighs as much as your gun doubling your weight the prey as gone.
    Light , simple, accurate and effective.
    What ever the costs!:D

    A <censored>ing torch!!!!!!!!! There was a ********** *** *** ***** torch strapped on to it!!!!!!!


    P.S. PG13: do not read without parental permission, those cuss-words could give you nightmares.

    They are right Rip offs Night copes. If you are looking for one under £500 then its crap or a rip off!
    scopes can get far to complicated . If you are hunting you not have the time to fiddle with dials especially if you stalk.
    A 3-9-50 scope is what i use for up to 50yd popping and it does the job, tried a £300 one with more ajustments you can handle and hit the same spot but 5 minutes later.
    If you are a serious hunter or target shooter then maybe something slightly better is required but for the average shooter thats good enough.;)

    okay Colin get the point... On the subject of illuminated recutiles, my uncle showed me an airgun magazine which had a comedy article in it, I was about some new make scope which was called "Forest Hunter." now, last time I checked most forests are green, right? well this scope had an illuminated recutile in it which was a darkish "glowing green" colour.... It showed pics looking through it and you coudnt even see the recutile in daylight or night!

    I like you have tried lots of scopes.
    But i think the best is just a fixed mag 6ish type scope set to 30 yards.
    Unbeatable
