    Noth Yorkshire(ish)....Other places in Scotland depending Which deer i'm after!
    i went out lamping with a chap who was using one on his howa 308, and I shot a fox at around 160 yards (I did well using a right handed thunmbhole as i'm a lefty). The clarity on the scope was very good indeed and he said it never shifted zero at all.
    At 60 quid I would say go for it!!!

    If its and old one ie made in Japan, possibly by Hakko then go for it. Otherwise cannot comment. I do have a NS MRE which is an excellent piece of glass 10+yrs old.

    They are good in low light from what I remember, as I had one for a while before I moved it on. For that kind of money I would go for it if it is in good nick.

    I use one foxing on the 243. It's good for 600+yards too, but, that's in daylight, on 'non living' targets.

    I just got 1 on my 243 package deal...never used ns before for scopes but it seems ok..only thing is the ir is hard to see(not very bright, even with a new battery)

    I have another model nikko sterling, and the build quality is awful. Better than no scope, but that's about as far as it goes. I hope the nighteater is better.
