Re: Photon XT or ADDONIGHT

I'd say the addonight if you have a suitable scope. By that I mean a scope with low magnification and a wide field of view, something like x2.5 or x3 at the bottom of the zoom range. The on board illuminator will be fine. Cheers Bruce Do you even need a scope for ratting with an "Addonight" ? Has a...

Re: Duff Browning A bolt

Sounds like my Winchester 70 - it came s/h with Hilver mounts which are windage adjustable.

When I fitted a rail, I had to file the holes oval,file the edges on the concave (under the rail )and twist the rail as I tightened up the screws.

Re: 1st time out addonight

What Mag setting are you using on the Hawke ?

I'm guessing it will work best on minimum 3x,letting more light through to the addonight.

The addonight is min of 4x mag which combines to 12x mag which is way more than necessary for .22 ranges.

Re: Photon extreme or doubler

Neither for .22 ranges.

Save your money for a cheap thermal spotter.

Re: Photon RT - Finally figured out why it would never hold zero! (video)

I take you are refocusing the objective lens after changing the cover position. When you focus a Photon you will notice the picture zooms in or out. If your "reticle" is optically centered you won't get a POI shift.But if your reticle is far up,down,left or right you will get a POI shift. You should...

Re: photon RT zero

Assuming you have a 6.0 x 50 then 1 click is 9.4mm @ 100 meters .

so Y=-46 should put you 18.8 mm high (3/4 inch) @ 100 meters .

You don't say what calibre you're using but that should be point and shoot for Photon ranges.

Re: Nv Advise

Hi, keep changing my nv and currently had ward d700 and d800 but found that they were a nightmare for staying on as most of my night shooting involves long walks! Had photon xt and rt but found quality not great close up! Done add-on screen from some bloke but again too bulky! Done pulsar n870 and ...

Re: Pulsar 860 rt which Ir

I was hoping somebody would give you a good answer to this. I have a 860vs which I assume is the same without the wi-fi and recording. I'm using a 25mm aperture ( which I drilled in an old spray can lid ) which sharpens up the picture a lot. Currently I'm using a Tracer 400 for illumination but I ha...

Re: help with photon xt

Why is everyone suggesting taking the centre out, that is only on it for daylight. The cap should be taken off when using i.r at night, surely? Photons may vary in their sensitivity but I find - daylight = pinhole , twilight = centre out and dark = cap open. I think most people can understand the c...
