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...

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

Re: Hello

Given your situation, then a front add-on may be your best solution. However the digital NV and thermal front add-ons are poor because you are basically looking at their near eye displays through the scope and since those displays are rather low resolution, it doesn't take a lot of scope magnificati...
