    Retro-Fitting BDC on S&B 6x42 Hungarian

    Hello!

    Retro-Fitting BDC on S&B 6x42 Hungarian, is this even possible? Like my scope as it is, but cannot afford a decent BDC scope at the moment, so thought it could be fun to have one installed on my present one...if possible.

    e-mailed S&B, but never heard back...they probably thought I was nuts and should go buy one of their more expensive scopes instead..

    Try Accuracy international I think they used to put the turrets on them for the army.

    It is possible, just try S&B again, they will reply, they are prety good.

    I know it's possible as my brother has had one fitted to his 3-12x50mm. He arranged it through York Guns which may be an easier option than conversing with the factory.

    Regards,

    Schmidt and Bender are flat out dealing with servicing scopes used in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    They will change the reticule but you might have a 90 day turnaround.

    I cannot praise the service from S&B enough as I have mentioned elsewhere on this site but can't find it at the moment.
    My reticule came detached and through the retailer was quoted at least six weeks turnround.
    I contacted S&B direct and, although I had to despatch it to them myself at my cost as opposed to free through the retailer, they turned it round in less than a week.
    I sent it to them on a Wednesday by parcel force, they got it Thursday evening, repaired it Friday and despatched it back to me Monday, I received it Tuesday completely repaired and refurbished ready for me to fly out to Croatia on the following Thursday. How pleased was I with service like that I'll never change my brand allegiance and am very surprised you have not heard back from them.
    I spoke to Christian Krugg, Marketing Manager and Sabine Brandt, Production Manageress.
    Both speak excellent German and a little English ;-)

    Hi Kev, It must have been one hell of a calibre you were firing to make your retina come loose but then it wasn't a S&B so probably a .22 rimmy

    Sigh. As has been said before on this very forum, I really should grow up.

    Hope to see you again at the next Salisbury meeting.

    With best wishes.
