That looks very well though out and made Mark. I see you are putting the anodising bucket to good use too. :thumbup:

Funny you should say that, the only part I'm going to anodize id the 25mm tube used to clamp the screen on etc and on the vid it's a temporary piece of round bar, I have ordered some tube to lighten things up and that will be shorter and anodized ;)


It works so well I'm making one for keeps :mrgreen:

Nice looking bit of kit (not you Mark), but i have one question. Is the view that you get like the one that you showed here, or is it that way because you are showing a recorded image.
The way that you are going i could be selling my NiteSite, or putting it in partx lol.

No, the view was better through the screen, I wasn't getting the white out. You can get a better field of view by using a 12mm lens instead of a 16mm but that's what I had so what I used.

You have to remember the illuminator I'm using is BETTER than anything commercially available too ;)

I can make the adapter sleeves for people who want to build their own, I'm not going to make the whole thing because there's nothing apart from the adapter to make :D

A correct grip on the butt & cheekweld is imperative for accurate shooting. :crazy: :lol:

We was only in a farm yard but I was told one end to the other was 175 yards and it had no problems with that distance.

I have to add, I wasn't trying to shoot rats with an airrifle at that range :crazy:

The rats shot were from 15 yards to 45 yards.
