    What a stupid thing to do.... Looked at Tains website

    Damn .................. I knew it was a daft thing to do but went ahead anyway.. Went to Tains website and browsed the optics as I will be needing a nice quality scope for the new Majestic I should have waited until I have paid for the the new barrel etc before doing so ........................................ damn .

    There innocently listed were two scopes that would do it justice one very reasonably priced the other a bit much for my budget right now but a cracking little scope Oh well I'll just go and snivel into my tea cup...............

    what's Tains?

    Edit, take it you mean Mcleods? Yep I sympathize. Although normally they have a few S&Bs I'm tempted by, not so right now

    Whoops yes sorry about that.. I have brought several scopes from them by post over the years and they have always been most helpful.

    Macleods are only 30 miles from me, I know they do a lot of good used scopes, is that why you went to them, for a nice used example? I find their prices disgustingly high for any new gear...

    Mmmmmmhhh, odd! I bought my first rifle, scope, moderator, slip and cleaning gear from them as they were by far the cheapest and offered the very best deal going. And i live a long, long way away from them with many gunshops in between, none of which offered such a good deal.

    Hmmm this thread has been dragged back up from the depths as it ages old.

    Agreed, their .270 ammo is of the scale compared to my local, odd really when you think they must shift a fair bit compared to my local.

    I did purchase a s/h rifle from them though which has been spot on.

    The Net is a wonderful tool for price crunching!!

    Give me ANY part/item, and I will beat Macleods price EVERY time.

    Brithunter - I also just noticed this thread is ancient, and also looks like it was me who done the dragging up! I really can't think of how... Must have been the "Similar Threads" link at the bottom of another thread.
