Ward 800l warrenty transfer

Post by JCS1993 » 12 Dec 2017, 21:10

Hi guys,

I am just about to push the button and buy a second hand ward 800l with the old type body, i believe.

First thing , is the warrenty transferable or isit just with the first purchaser ?
And secondly it will be going on a rem 700 or howa m1500, will standard high mounts be enough to allow proper bolt clearence or not ?

I am fairly new to this so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Jon

Clive has always looked after WDV owners. He allows for warranties to be passed along.

How close does your bolt already get to the scope. WDV require 55mm's when attached circumference total. Which isn't very much above what the eye piece is already.

Had to reread your opening post. Advice given on new body.

It should work, but thats all to do with scope height to bolt. Ahhh, someone else will have to chip in here. The WDV works just as well canted on the scope.
You would need to ask Clive the upgrade cost to new body. Christmas rush not the best time to ask.

Worry about it once you have got it, might not be anything to worry about. Your call.

heres the thread with the upgrade prices


viewtopic.php?f=45&t=17180

If you did need or want to upgrade you would just need the cnc body

when asking for advice, please include what n.v device and/or illumination you already have (if any) and what rifles you intend to use them on...cheers

The new body is a definite upgrade in pure quality. Not a lot wrong with the old, but the new is superior. The moving parts to the new isn't five minutes work but close to a from scratch build. Then VAT and over heads. Basically not given away but not taking the mick either. No one else offers that kind of service, no one offers upgrades like this.
One reason I'm a fan.

Anyhow, it might all just workout just fine. Its what scope compatibility and what ir that really gets the reach.

In another one of my posts I'm getting the performance that a 300m shot could be on, with full x16 magnification, using a Ruby led. Not saying every combination can get that, its so much to do with how all the parts work together and when optimised. And then we have the conditions of the night. Others have proclaimed even longer range.

Read up on it all. Give yourself some playing time before going out in the field in earnest. Set up, play time, is time well spent. Optimise it all, familiarise yourself, and then settle down for field use. Fiddle factor is high to start but soon calms down to practical and effective.

Be safe, have fun.

Hi,

Clive does offer an upgrade to the new body. Mine cost £175. It's worth it the new body fits all my rifles with no bolt fouling even though I have my scopes mounted low. Clive turned my upgrade round in a week, but as Muskett says Christmas rush may make turn around time longer.

Don't know what price you are paying for the second hand 800 but maybe consider going for new one with the new body?

Leave it up to you.

Well I am starting to think a new one could be a better shout , what would you say a second hand 800l with old type body is worth ?
Thanks

I will be doing the same, anything seems to be far to close to new money by the time you add £175 upgrade on
