    Wanted: Good Quality Glass

    Hi all,

    Father n Law is looking for a new scope, his budget is around 500. just seeing if there are any second hand S and B's, Swaro's, Nightforce etc going now or in the near future? Fixed or varible will both be considered.

    Regards

    Carl.

    >> Guntrader << would be a good start, you will for that price get a Fixed S&B or Swarovski, if you get a Nightforce for that price.....I'd be very suspicious......

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    i have had two bog rolls, oops ****forces and i would not have one on a 22lr, its like looking down a furred up drain pipe, and the fov is not that good imo, i find the edges of the glass to be/give the feeling that they are bevelled in some way,

    never again.

    been there and done it, they are ok but nout to warrent the price thay ask for, like all the big makers.

    i have had redfield swarovski, leupold, s&b, and meopta, ****force, hawke bushnell and a few more, and i have stuck with zeiss mid range scopes, i just think they are what they say on the box, nothing more and defo nothing less,

    but thats just my opinion, i am that happy with them im after another one.
