    We might be able to secure a group buy at 10% discount from Falcon for the new X50 if we can get enough numbers together.

    If you're interested leave a name below and we'll see what we can do :)

    Nothing ugly about the sidewheel that Jon Harris makes for the x50.

    It is exactly the same as other JH wheels like on my nikko and delta
    which are a work of art,so you’re way off.

    You can buy for 699 the X50 and buy wheel separate from JH (totally different wheel with a lot of curves).You will pay the same money included postage

    I believe the t50 came with a sidewheel that was “designed” by JH. Whereas, with the x50, he makes them as well.

    this is the wheel on my t50 for comparison...

    the t50 wheel wasn’t manufactured by him though. Only the design. The x50 one i know he makes them. He has photos on his FB page showing this.

    £69, £70, whatever?! Still seems cheap to buy a custom one direct for that price?

    I'm about to purchase two X50s.

    Which of the following versions would be recommended for FT, or doesn't it matter?

    X503FT – Reduced parallax range for Field Target competition. 9m>300m
    X504LR – Standard parallax range. 10m>Infinity

    You want the FT version.

    as the LR version won’t focus in at the minimum 10yard target setting.

    X50 is good and bright scope ,the only problem for me, was the too bold reticle ..Found my self when was looking through(range finding) to distract my eye from the target (focussing in the reticle instead the details of the target )compare to the reticle of my Deltas..
    That is my personal opinion or preference !!!

    I found that site before I ordered mine so I was lucky and got it for £730 bargain and they are still worth every penny of £779, and the weight saving on a big nikko is another bonus.
