Hi Dave, the answer is NO.
What goes for one add on goes for them all, they all need parallel adjustment to focus with ANY n/v add on, and this really needs to be down to 10yd.

The Pulsar DFA75 does not need parallax adjustable scopes, works fine with a Walther, Baur, Nikon and Deben. The adjustment on the unit gives a crystal clear image not the scope. The only issue is you cant use high mag scopes x7 is about the max

Hmm - tricky because you don't say what your intended use or range is, so Dave is right to say no - but... your other rifles all have fairly low starting mags so you might drop lucky if its going to be used at sub 100 yards and reasonably low mags at a restricted depth of focus. Bunny bashing might well be dooable till you change scopes on some rifles.

If you are likely to buy a Wardy anyway can I suggest its worth at least a suck it and see gamble before moving some scopes on? Clive extends a refund offer if returned within a few days so all either of you lose is the cost of insured postage if you are unwilling to replace scopes.

I've done this with some buyers (When I kept a small stock) who said they were willing to buy other scopes anyway - who kept the rig. Here's what I did with a 6x38 non focusable Weaver Classic a few years ago - notice how the bug eye effect shows when its out of focus range but still usable for pest control. The IR was a tiny 501b, retical was slightly out of focus too and I got a bit carried away with the editing at the end. :D

The DFA75 will zero up the same as your Photon.
The tip is to set the zero function X on the DFA to align with your scopes centre ret then tighten the clamp unit. Your first shot at 100m will then only be a maximum of 75mm off the bull.
Align the cross over the shot as per the Photon and hit the set button....job done.
I used to swap the unit from a .243 to a .22rf with no loss of zero. I've since changed some bits around.
I have a Photon on a .22rf, the DFA75 is permanently attached to the .243 and I have a Ward 800 which I swap between a Hornet, 17hmr and a couple of other 22's.

The only downside with a Ward is it needs a scope with parallax adjustment......but not all of them will work :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
