    I can't remember if it 1inch or 30mm of the top of my head and I'm currently up north in Scotland, on return I shall check and post the details.

    But as I said rings are included.

    Can I ask why you want a 30mm tube ? It makes no difference to light transmission, only amount of adjustment, and that really only comes into play when dialling in. I'd snap the sellers arm off for a scope like this, at this price, if I was in the market for a scope

    To be honest I don't think there is much difference between the light gathering 26 and 30mm tubes. Plus with being a S&B it doesn't have poor glass. I had this on both my .308 and then on my .22 prior to upgrading to pm2's and used it while lamping rabbits for most of this year.

    But thanks very much for your interest, happy hunting.

    Only I have a set of spare leupold low qrw for it to go on my sako quad and can't get 26mm qrw at a reasonable price

    Did you re parralax the scope when on your .22lr for focusing at short range?

    Thanks Matt

    No I didn't, I believe there set at 100 yards ish. But Im no scope expert its not my area of experience. Don't think it needs or would ever require adjusting. But id happily stand corrected with someone with more experience/expertise in this area.

    I have opened scopes up before many moons ago, these have all bee military bits of kit and had desiccating units to do the job etc. I wouldn't even know where to start on civi kit.

    Any personal kit I leave to sending back to manufacture unless its changing turret caps etc. Where the job can be done correctly.

    The above discussion may help put into perspective on what people think of the scope on a .22 rimfire.

    Plus its a handy back up scope should you break/damage your main scope on your stalking rifle and doubles up as a back up.
