Hi Phil,

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. :thumbup:


Cheers

Hi Clive, when can I expect to receive the unit I ordered earlier? Just so I can arrange for someone to be here to sign for it

Hi Barmyfarmer,

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.

Cheers
