Scope ideas



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi
Looking to shoot International .22 sporter class, U.K. and Europe, and am looking for the ideal scope, probably doesn’t exist.
Currently using a Delta Optics 6-24 x42. Would like a fixed focus light weight scope.
Weight is an important factor as the overall sporter weight is 8.5 lbs.
Requirements:
Weight no more than about 500 grams
Fixed focus at x6 or x6.5, Max rules allow.
Tube diameter immaterial.
Objective lens at least 40mm.
Adjustable objective.
Non-illuminated reticule.
Fine cross hair with or without dot.
1/8 moa or .1 mrad adjustment.

Does such a beast exist? If so please enlighten me.
Stay safe.

I have what you need. Leupold FX3 Competition Hunter. Go to Leopold’s
website. Search item number 66825. It’s no longer in production.
Mine is as new, never mounted, pristine condition with scope cover and manual.
Weight is 15 oz, 6 power, 1/8 moa target dot, 1/8 inch click ajustment turrets,
adjustable objective. 40 mm objective, 1 inch tube.
Unless there are restrictions against shipping such an item out of the US,
it’s yours for the asking, no charge.
In exchange maybe you can explain why Brits insist on driving on the
wrong side of the road. I can imagine phrases like “well it seemed like a good
idea at the time”.

Double wow! Wish I had asked first!

BTW, there is no problem shipping to England as long as it is not a "tactical" scope intended for the military.

scope ideas

G'day dogwind,leupold FX3 competition are used to shoot metallic silhouettes here in australia and do not last long on the second market. Another scope which was all the rage a few years ago was the usa made burris hbr 6x32 super fine crosshair with .375 dot 1/8 click target turrets which had a weight of 450 grams with single screw sportsmatch mounts. they often come up on the usa scope market.Scott.

Hi

PM sent. Touch base soon.

As for driving on the left, a number or explanations abound but here's a couple: There is an historical reason for this; it’s all to do with keeping your sword hand free!

In the Middle Ages you never knew who you were going to meet when travelling on horseback. Most people are right-handed, so if a stranger passed by on the right of you, your right hand would be free to use your sword if required. (Similarly, medieval castle staircases spiral in a clockwise direction going upwards, so the defending soldiers would be able to stab down around the twist but those attacking (going up the stairs) would not.)

Indeed the ‘keep to the left’ rule goes back even further in time; archaeologists have discovered evidence suggesting that the Romans drove carts and wagons on the left, and it is known that Roman soldiers always marched on the left.

Useless interesting fact and nothing to do with driving on the left, a groom holds his bride on his left.

scope ideas

Hi all, as we also drive on the left here in australia and it is custom for the male to walk on the right (traffic side of the footpath) shielding the female on the left in case of accidents. Trivia maybe , but that was how i was bought up.Scott

Did a bit of research around the export/import bit, talk about dull and boring reading. From what I can ascertain, after the section stating that riflescopes built to milspec are included, there is a note stating “ this category does not cover riflescopes and sighting devices which are not manufactured to milspecs.”

The scope in question was definitely not built to any milspec so should be quite legal to export from USA to U.K. I’m glad I cleared that up in my mind.

Well I have no sword, but having read the historical reasons for driving on the
left, I’m inclined to believe that we, the Americans, were the contrarians on
this issue!
May I say “Hail Britannia” whose history and culture is the basis for much of
western civiliztion.
As a sword would be difficult to wield from my wheelchair, I take comfort in
the belief that I could at least “cut them off at the knees”.
