Clives drone replacement.

Post by jackal1 » 16 Mar 2018, 12:31

Many a true word spoken in jest. :silent:

Joking aside we have been looking at various options for this for some time, in case the Drone wasn't improved upon. We were certainly surprised it has been discontinued entirely.

With the recent news we have brought this forward as a priority now.


A working model was due for testing within 4 weeks ( 24th Jan ) .
Have you got it?
How does it perform?

Hi All,

We're working on it. :thumbup:

Unfortunately the Legat digisight was binned by the manufacturers almost a year ago. :(

We are working with them on our replacement product more suitable for the UK market. 8-)


Cheers

MLS-13-52x60 . Optical scope for ultra-long shooting


/themes/schweitzer/assets/images/mls/mls-13-52x60-005sw.jpg

The pancratic sight (with smoothly changing magnification) with catadioptric objective MLS 13-53х60 has some peculiarities: - paralax adjustment range from 7 to infinity;
- shooting range from 7 to 1500 m ( form 7.65 to 1640 yard );
- click value 1/30 mil;
- specially designed reticle in the first focal plane;

Focusing at the range of fire keeping high-quality image in wide spectrum is achieved due to a unique optical scheme without generating special glasses, crystals, etc.;

Hi .270

Sorry missed this one with all that's going on.

I'm hoping with some luck and a fair wind this will be ready for launching end of this coming week.


Cheers

Thanks for the info on the drone pro replacement Clive, any chance of making a bayonet fixing for a scope to mount a ward 800l ??. The shimming of every scope is a pain, but if we could buy a bayonet type fixing for every scope I have to put the 800l on would then be a doddle, cant wait for your Drone Pro Replacement. :thumbup:
