Just wondering wot people believe is the best set up for a general purpose rifle? One that is ur first choice out cabinet for fox and small deer (22cf-243 type size).
I'm not after a specialised set up as for all u can afford the NV scopes nowadays, u still have to buy another rifle to sit it on and sit in the cabinet, fair play to u pro boys but a lot off money to have 2 rifes setups sitting in similar calibres. Far too much for me anyway
In the past u would stick the best glass on it u could but just wondering with some of the modern NV sight costing around the same money as even a moderately priced scope.
Would u ever put say a phonton or other NV scope on ur rifle and use it throu the day, as some of them can be used throu the day. (Not wanting to open the can off worms on wether it is legal to use an NV scope for daylight stalking) In the past u paid the extra money for that extra 10-15mins but with a NV that obviusly isn't an issue
Also with the modern small scope mounted lamps nowadays making solo lamping far easier. Seems to be a lot of reviews saying the NM 800 etc type LED lamps are amazing but they are still a lamp so could still dazzle/scare foxes and possibly more so with the more focused beam, in the old days with the LF u just held fox in the very outside edge of beam and moved in very slowly till there was a bang.
Are the laser designators a better choice for a wee bit extra money, like the ND3 althou i see very mixed reviews some saying best thing ever and other saying biggest gimmick/waste off money ever, yet unlike the LED or normal lamp type they shouldn't spook foxes to the same extent. From wot i can gather the ND's no longer have problems with the cold .
So is it worth the money and paying an exta 100 quid and gettin a laser 1 over a led or are u better moving to the dark side just saving a load more pennies and gettin a NV scope/complete setup
