    Anyone using one of these in FT? As they have been out now for a few months
    just wondered how they compare with similar sightron and nikko. Intreasted to
    hear your thoughts as have owned both of the latter.

    Hi, I am using one and I have just shot in the worlds and I am very happy with it, you are more than welcome to have a look through it, if you PM me I will tell you when I'm at my club Emley or I don't mind calling in at Redferns on my way past.

    All the feedback I’ve heard has been very good.

    I have been using a Falcon X50 for a couple of months now. I have owned a Sightron FT and a Nikko diamond and I personally think the Falcon is better then the Nikko and just as good if not slightly better then the Sightron. It range finds great, snaps in and out nicely. It does shift in certain temp but is very predictable.

    I have a X50, after a hour testing a mate ordered one. I prefer the X50 to my Nikko, Reticle especially.

    The lens covers are crap, easily sorted. The sunshade is bloody heavy, 4mm thick! A mate has turned my sunshade down to 1mm, 60g. now. Thanks Pavel.;)

    I am no FT expert but I have had nothing but praise from all experienced FT shooters that have tested mine.

    That reminds me, me X50 is still out on loan.:eek:

    Ogi, you have PM.
