    Haenel rifle and Meopta R2 scope

    I helped a young guy set up his new rifle and scope the other day
    it took very little effort and shot very well
    the quality of the scope was equal optically to my Zeiss and substantially less money
    The Heanel is made in the same factory as the Merkal helix, and on the same machinery
    We put a fallow and a roe buck in the chiller
    This is a great combination, and from the smile on his face he thought the same.

    Haenel is a very old firm known for it's quality manufacture even under the Communists as Suhl is in Eastern Germany drillings made there prior to WW2 are quite sort after. Glad to see the company name still going.

    Viking arms are the importers, they would put you in touch with a local stockist
    I find Swillington shooting supplies very good, Ive heard of people coming up to them from the south and still being better value than there local shop.
    The yound guy I took with me text a little while ago and said he had enjoyed his couple of days.
    Good luck what ever you choose, I don't think any of the present day rifles / scope combinations are poor, just some better for value
