Thread: T8 and lamping query

    T8 and lamping query

    Just bought a 2nd hand 243 rifle package, it is fitted with a T8 mod, neoprene cover and 8x56 S+b scope.
    I went out lamping for the first time with this outfit only to find that the lamp mounted to the scope is flaring out the scope off the T8. Remove the neoprene cover and it still flares out, remove the T8 and the picture is perfect..
    Do I need to buy higher mounts or is there another solution.
    The rifle with the T8 mounted is hittng 2"ish groups at 200yds remove the mod and the the groups are 3" up and 3" left..

    Thanks in advance.

    Do a search on 'moderator glare' in the general section. There was a thread on this very subject a wee while ago.

    either put a front lense cover over front and cover the bottom half with tape or put tape over bottom half of the objective lense this will cure your problem ..neil

    you need the light mounted to the front of the scope,i have had the same problem,i got round it by putting a mod cover on the mod,if this dosnt work try rising the scope mount,i put some rubber under the backet on the light (on my light force lamp) to raise it about 5mm

    Cover bottom half of front lens with tape,it works just fine.Shot a fox 2 nights ago using this method. Much easier than adding all sort of shades etc.

    Hummel, does that not restrict vision out of the 'scope, can you still see the reticle?

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    Mentioned this on another post but if you've got a butler creek flip cover put it on upside down and have it 3/4 open, there will be no loss of view and flare reduced big time, I do all my lamping on my own and this works for me.
