    Hey guys, I'm looking for an FT scope and wondered if this is an option despite the low magnification and parallax from 25 yards ...
    Thanks for your help

    They would not be my choice, Ive had 2 in the past optics nothing special, and range finding very slow and unreliable.
    You would be a lot better off with a Big Nikko.

    Jim Vickers or Nick Muphey are the men to speak to re these scopes as they either use them or have used them a lot in the recent past.

    Agreed, I found the same with mine, not worth the money.

    So , if not is a Leup or a BN, because they price or the lack of stock , what else is good enough for FT. Are we running out of options?

    What about

    I have the Bushnell 4200 Elite 8-32X40 and it is a very good scope for the money. It may be priced differently in the U.K., but used ones sell for $400-$500 over here. What is the experts take on the 8-32 Bushnell?
