    Traditional 3 Draw Telescope or Modern Chunky Dumpy

    What's your views?

    I have the chance of traditional Telescopic Scope or should I hold out for a good second hand modern type?

    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

    The Grays is nice to look through and hold because Its longer but its only x25. I personally prefer the German optics. I use a optolyth and a Swarovski and the clarity is out standing on both of them. The telescope saves a hell of a lot of walking!!

    If you can get a good Ross, Broadhurst Clarkson or Grays go for it!

    Quite often it's the leather work on cases and straps that let the old ones down.

    I'm sucker for the old stuff and hell of a lot easier to use than these wee short German things! I suppose it's down to what you are used to!

    You won't go wrong with a Ross, if the glass and leather are clean, it would be worth grabbing. Are they brass or aluminium?

    There are a couple on evil b

    Occasionally I am allowed to take out mrs heym's Negretti and zambra 4 draw scope - lovely to use and lightweight and easy to balance and rest on knee. But it was her grandfathers and 60 yrs old so not for rough use. I would like to get a Ross/greys at some point, but difficult to justify. I have a little Leopold compact 10-20x40 that fits in a pocket and a big Howa 32x72 spotting scope. The later has an angled eyepiece and really needs a tripod. I only have a big tripod for it though. Wonderful for looking with and watching wildlife. Not so wonderful for carrying. I really need to get a new lightweight tripod for it. Have used it on the hill when stalking, but it's been left in the Argo.

    He has one of them too, for 275 it has a lovely leather case with it. I have been given a very good deal by a site member (Thank You) you know who you are.
