    Went down to ALDI today with the missus . had a look around and noticed a spotting scope on sale . like a bit of optics so bought one . got it home and had a look at it in the garden . it is a 20+60+ 60 . rubber armoured , built in sun shade and lens cover , attached so you won't lose it . it has a table top tripod and the attachment has a slip ring so you can move the side mounted eyepice to where you want it . all fitted in a carrybag with shoulder strap . the optics are not zeiss . but up to 30 mag , pretty good . if you need a 55 yards check zero on the range or are just a nosy bugger like me . then it could be for you ? How Much you ask . on flea bay £60 up to £90 ,maybe . £ 26.95 P at Aldi . better get in quick i reckon . now think how much it wold be for a top quality FT scope if we could get enough people interested for mass production ??? HOLLY:):cool:

    The Let

    The let down with these is the coating on the lenses ( if any ) but at close ranges in good light ( IE 50 to 100 yards ) yep not bad ??? HOLLY
    PS HFT , Archery , or the club shot who does not have a big scope .:)

    We use them on our 10mtr range and they're excellent value for money.

    I Have had one for a while, they are great value & more than capable at all air gun ranges.
    I mainly use mine for 10m pistol practice.
