    Hi All,

    I have the opportunity for a falcon 10-50x 60 which I intend to use for FT work. My question is that the version for sale is a metric one. If this just means the focus ring and turrets are metric instead of yards and 1/8 clicks I'm thinking this isn't too much of a problem.

    Am I on the right lines?

    Any help would be appreciated

    If you mean MRAD...

    If you mean the version with the .05 MRAD clicks, I'm quite pleased with mine and would prefer it to one with 1/8" clicks as I can go from 9-50m with about 3/4 of a turn on the elevation knob.

    See you there ! I will be shooting with my little SR-6 until I decide whether to take the plunge on a new T 50 or wait for a 2nd hand nikko.. must admit the Falcon is looking like a good starter option..

    Thanks for all the help, the T50 did me proud today. Just need to learn the clicks now.

    Looking forward to the first round of the winter series at Kent Woodsmen next week. Who do I need to speak to in order to book the sun shine?:p

    Well shot Andy.
    Once I get the last round of the UKAHFT out of the way I will be putting the T-50 on my rig, I will try to get to some of the winter shoots so see you around :)

    I have 5.5x25-50 ffp menace metric it is brilliant, as said before not too many clicks needed to move poi. people that have tried it say it has great glass. every one seems to love it no negatives except one you cant lock the turrets, but in the few months I have had it never had a problem. and for around £300 you wont get better value.:)
