    Do you really need answers to this or do you want to start a row. Do something about your bins make do with them, you do not want to be using your rifle scope as a spotting scope.

    Rifle scope should never be used for spotting.

    I bought a pair of minox 8.5 x 42 bins a couple of months ago. They are seriously good and perform in low light as well as a pair 5 times their price. Lots of minox fans on this site, do some searching.

    Tryed that they were bought in Germany so classed as grey import so they wont do them.

    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .
