Price drop from £250 to £200 delivered.

Selling my target scope as I'm not using it anymore or swap for some bins.
Bought it to test loads out at range and fine out exactly what my bullets were doing in comparison to what the tables said would happen. Not doing that kind of shooting anymore so it needs to go.
It's a 1" tube, 24x40 mag with an adjustable objective. Very precise and definite clicks (none of this wishy washy stuff). Clear glass and tracks exactly. Fine crosshair (not duplex).
There is a small scratch on the eye which can be seen in the pictures and some marks on the tube.
It's been a great scope and very useful but just don't need it.
Perfect for what I used it for and would be a great leg up for someone getting into targets.
Looking for £250 for it (sell for £6-800 normally). Picked it up for that price so thought I'd return the favour and offer someone else a bargain.
Would also swap for some other shooting kit. 8x42 Binoculars, up to 16 power scope, or even something random. Could do with a decent remote fox caller and a stuffed fox to accompany it for an idea I've had!

I have this exact scope and just used it out to 600. Even though my mounts mean it's zeroed one completely turn up it still has enough elevation to get to 600. See bullet holes at 300 plus

Thanks for your reply 1894. It's a cracking bit of kit and will be sorely missed. I'm sure that once it goes I'll need it again but not just yet. Used to use it a fair bit for spotting to call the shots when mates were testing ammo. Bit more useful than a spotting scope!

For a target I use a sheet of A4. Fire a shot use that as the aiming mark. Works out to 300:eek:

Hi John, I'll have to check I can send it internationally with the magnification. Bear with me and will have a check of it.

Hi John I'm afraid I can't send it to you as you're outside the UK. From how i read the export controls, as it is over 10x mag it requires an export permit.
