    Cheers for that !

    What you reckon then in quid terms ? .. is this worth a look if the price is ..........?

    Or a redundant piece of kit, since the new Falcon T50 should come under 400 quid ?

    If it's the same instrument as the Mk1/Mk2 Nikko Diamond i'd say yes they are worth a go, as for price i'd say no more than £600. The trouble with the Falcon is no-ones seen a production one yet although we have seen a number of development mules.

    Will i would want more than two at that price excluding the associated problems, they were £270 brand new up to and including the green turret mark 3, not the latest 2008 mark 4.

    Mag is too high for a Zos, tending to go up to 40mag. Look at my Nikko tomorrow and compair, looks like a Mk1/Mk2 Nikko right down to the small plastic pointer by the sidewheel.

    Jon I was making an educated guess based on the price of the Mk4(2008) and what a Mk3, if available would be likely to be sold at retail. Very highly unlikely i'd imagine they would keep selling them at £270 if the Mk4 was nearer the £700 mark.
