Thread: a rant

  1. #1

    a rant

    Why, oh why must the optics manufacturers have two different sizes of scope tube?!

    A complete and unmitigated ball ache.

    And why can't the rifle makers standardise the fittings for bases? There can be NO good reason why not.

    Standardise, you fu*kers.

    Probably boils down to the usual $$$ (I don't have a pound symbol on my laptop)

    Agreed, every rifle should come with it's own rings, like CZ's do, and all scopes should be small, light, neat and have a 1 inch tube.
    While they are about it they could also do away with anything over a 42mm objective, and keep the O/D of all oculars to 40mm or less

    There should also only be one calibre to simplify things. And that should be 7mm-08. Loaded with nothing but Nosler BTs. You don't need anything else.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picatinny_rail is the answer. I wish I had known of this 20 years ago, I would have saved a lot of money. Regards JCS

    Now that is a statement garunteed to aggravate a man already unhappy with the world! Self-satisfied scrotum-sucker. Pretensious, patronising, pustulous pre-puce.

    I feel better now.

    Confused! You feel better?

    Did you get the prepuce thing sorted then? Sounds nasty.
