You haven't got time to go out tonight, you have to get these 800's finished so I can get one for my friend. lolcliveward wrote:Hi Phil,PhilM wrote:Did you ever get around to testing the Nightforce SHV or the cheaper S-Tac scopes at all Clive?
Yes I have tested the cheaper S-Tac but it doesn't seem to work as well as the more expensive one. I think that's a combination of the smaller objective and a slightly different coating on it. It is still good though, just not as good.
I do however have a sample finally of a 4.5-18x50 scope that I spotted at IWA. I'm hoping to give this a test tonight.
Thanks for the info Clive. Is it okay to send my 700 to you for upgrade now or you still busy and any news on the rifle scope you were going to try with the 800 please ?cliveward wrote:Available to order now.
Hi Barmyfarmer,Barmyfarmer wrote:Just order mine now which scope do I order
I ordered mine too the other day. Got a Leapers mini swat for the first test with the WDV, but I think I will buy another scope with higher magnification and objetive diameter, so I can take full advantage of the WDV and try to make longer shots.
It is agreed by most that the S-tac is one of the best, but out of my budget.
Then comes the Sidewinder, which has a lot of supporters in the forum and seems to work great too with the WDV. But what about other Hawke models like the airmax and frontier?
Personally, the Sidewinder is still a little bit pricey for me. So I am aiming to Nikko Stirling, but there is not much references to them regarding the WDV. I've read the nighteater used to be good, but that model isnt in the market anymore. I have settled my eyes on the Target Master 6-24x56 which has pretty low parallax setting, a large objetive for more light transmission and a 30 mm tube. It has ETE coated lenses. I dont know how this treatment will work with IR, but being a cheap scope I dont think it will block so much of it. The Nikko Stirling Diamond 6-24x50 is another one that could be interesting.
Othe options I've seen are Sutter scopes. I've asked Clive about the Nikko and Sutter, maybe he has tested some of them.
