Re: PARD 007 /VORTEX DIAMONDBACK TACTICAL FFP

Minimum focus distance with the 008 is 2 yards I have an 008 on my Tikka T1x rimfire and there's nothing I can't do with this set up that I could do with the Hawke Frontier I had on it before, plus now, I don't have to faff around with the add-on for NV work. The 008 works for me, but I don't have a...

Re: PARD 007 /VORTEX DIAMONDBACK TACTICAL FFP

Probably the sidewinder and 007 with a 12mm lens
At 20 yards, the x6 magnifiction on the 008 is going to make it difficult to find the target.

Cheers

Re: PARD 007 /VORTEX DIAMONDBACK TACTICAL FFP

The Hawke and 007 is probably a bit better at low magnifications when there's plenty IR coming through the scope. At high magnifications,I think the 008 is better because there's a lot less IR coming through the scope In each case I'm only using the on board IR illuminators. Using an external IR ill...

Re: PARD 007 /VORTEX DIAMONDBACK TACTICAL FFP

Virtually all glass scopes are better than digital scopes so, for daytime use, the Hawke gives a better image than the 008. However, the 008 image is perfectly acceptable and the benefit of having a single scope that can perform well at any time day or night, for me, far outweighs the slight loss in...

Re: PARD 007 /VORTEX DIAMONDBACK TACTICAL FFP

I did use the 007 on a Hawke Frontier 3-15x50 ffp scope (no longer available for some reason) and it was a very good combination I've fitted, zeroed, removed and refitted 008s on a Tikka T1 rimfire and on a CZ527 in 22 hornet. In each case the 008 had to be re-zeroed when they were refitted. Cheers ...

Re: PARD 007 /VORTEX DIAMONDBACK TACTICAL FFP

Sorry, but for shooting rats at 60-80 yards any make of 6-24 scope is a complete waste of money. At that range, you want a wide field of view to be able to see the rats before you actually put the cross hairs on one. The lower the scope magnification, the wider the field of view. At 60-80 yards x3 o...

Agreed,
If I was in the OPs situation, I'd be biting JDKs arm for that deal!

Re: Wanted .22

Some people like 10/22s, some don't I had one and it never worked reliably with subsonic ammo, it was never very accurate and it had a trigger designed by a committee of american lawyers If you want to try a semi automatic 22, then the CZ 512 is about as good as it gets as far as accuracy goes.

Re: Wanted .22

For £200, a decent CZ/Brno is your best bet
10/22s often have problems with subsonic ammo and are not as accurate as a bolt action rifle
