Thread: Time For a new scope

  1. #1

    Time For a new scope

    The time has come to get a new scope for the .243.

    Not bothered about make to be frank it's going on a low recoil gun. I am not into buying brand new ether. I do not want to spend Łk's

    Any suggestions or a reticule with some nice heavy cross hairs and a central dot. The dot needs to be illuminated for a bit of foxing work should it come up. fixed mag would be good too. I would think the above reticule requirements will cost lots with zee Germans/Austrian glass. So I'm not going there.

    No need for a large objective too.

    So lads/lasses any suggestions.

    Bit too expencive I fear.

    I have a conquest on my 30-06. Nice scopes!

    On the .243 at the moment is a Niko gold crown. if it had a illuminated ret it would stay. That's the only thing in the way of it staying.

    Stick with older? gold crown. might not be just as clear as a top euro scope, but it works well every day and takes a reasonable battering with it.


    Once had a Platnum niko for a short while but it was never a patch on the older gold crown.

    swaro. on the rifle now but a second hand one need n't break the bank all together

    I know what you mean about the old gold crowns great bit of glass. I just wish it had a lumi ret! Very annoying!!!! It shame to take it off the rifle. Will probebly keep it as a spare. You never know do you.
