    Yep, that 8x50 is a lovely scope. Much lighter than a S&B and better glass for the same sort of money!

    I love how so often fixed mag scopes are referred to as ‘excellent for those new to the sport’..(not having a dig fyi)..when in fact those old experienced stalkers that really know what they’re doing,,would never want anything BUT a fixed mag scope with a relatively small objective bell.

    In fact, I bet if a study was done, it would show that the more sophisticated a scope was (ie. turrets, Christmas tree reticles, infrared, red dot, adjustable lights, zoom,, etc.) ..the less deer it’s owner shoots in comparison to the owners of fixed mag scopes of equal brand.
