I am a novice and am currently researching a rifle and scope package. I have a fairly good idea about the sort of rifle I would like. However, I am struggling a bit on the scope.
I think I would be best off with a fixed power model. I have had a look at various makes. Schmidt and Bender seem to be good quality and value for money.
I understand that S&B sell scopes made in Germany and Hungary. The blurb on the websites suggests that the Hungarian ones are of the same design and spec. as the German ones and are made from the same components, However, it reckons they are assembled in Hungary and so are cheaper.
Does anyone have any views on S&B scopes in general and on the differences between the Hungarian and German ones. The general concensus on this forum and from BASC and the BDS seems to be that I should not scrimp on optics. I am keen to follow that advice. However the Hungarian S&B's do not seem like a compromise if they are as good as the websites suggest. Am I being a bit naive on this?
Thanks for your help
