while looking on the evil bay I came across a Russian scope. A 8x56 illuminated parallax adjustable with a 1inch tube. So I took a punt and spent £111 of my hard earned cash. It's now arrived. It looks to be very well made, a bit primative but very clear. The illumination is good no spread and the reticule is very fine but easy to see, its just like a military one lots of aim marks. I'm going to put it on my .17hmr or .22lr and see how it goes. More to follow.
