    Craig has now got a nice shiny 9003 shutz . very nice . as for putting a Big Nikko on it . well to be fair they are the best of the cheaper scopes no problem . but if you have a 8002 , then really a 20+50 lupe is the one unless you have LOADS of money . try craigs one on his 9003 ??? HOLLY :D

    PS lighter than a Big Nikko .:)

    T50

    T50 , on a 8002 ? Noooooooooooooooooooo . a worthy scope but there is better out there . have a look through kiltys Big Nikko . he has a Schmidt and bender and he uses one . you can pay more and get a sightron . but a MK 111 will do all that you need . i was using mine today and even on 25 mag it was snapping in at 52 yards , no probs . the MK111 has better optics and the turrets are far better than the early ones . you know it makes sense ??? HOLLY:)

    Buy shiny mounts to set it off ?

    I wouldn't be too dismissive of a T50, I have two here, and my shooting partner has two Mk111 Nikko's a NATO and a mildot, we did several days of back to back testing over a year ago swapping back and forth trying to find pro's and con's varying mag etc.

    End result was one of my T50's came out on top and we had a bit of trouble separating the other three, but plumped for the NATO as second place but the Mildot Nikko last, but, it was subjective as there was no real obvious difference.

    What we found was if the scope was a bit brighter , it snapped in with less definition, the NATO was a tad brighter on 50x but the #2 Falcon range found better, in both cases though it was marginal and could have come down to tired eyes messing with the scopes for two long, the mildot Nikko however was marginally optically poorer than the other three!

    Anyway moral of the story is Nikko's and T50's vary in quality, it's a good idea to look through several if you can, a good T50 is as good as a good Diamond

    In my opinion with what I've seen the average Nikko, (mk1 or Mk2 ) is best bet. The MK3 is/was very hit and miss.
    Being honest I haven't heard of a good T50 being used to much success...in fact I haven't heard of a good production T50!

    Got a couple of good T50 production here, just that I prefer my March.
    Prefer last years production to current issue T50 both can range within 2ft at 61 yards in variable daylight. Higher mag than BSA as well.

    Having had several BSA/Nikos even the worst T50 far exceed the average BSA/Niko in every department, most notably build quality.
    I do now the replacement rate when ASI were distributing quite a shocker no company could tolerate.
    Point being no one sells a good BSA/Niko, they are kept and don't come up for sale!

    how do you tell

    for the inexperienced scope buyer,
    what do you look for ?
    how do you tell, test ?

    what are the differences likely to be between a good one an average one and a poor one

    First

    First thing is to look through it on the mag you will use . IE 50 mag , is it so dark that you cannot make out the pellets marks on the target ? is it clear . then look up towards the sky ( not at the sun ) does it have a coloured ring around the outside ( not good ) does it repeat the ranges on the side wheel . 50 , 52 and 55 yards are the ones to look for . does the sidewheel move smoothly ( heavy is not bad , but it must be smooth ) do the turrets click nicely and not suddenly dissapear . any crimping to the body , scratches to the lenses . if the scope is mounted . fire a shot at 30 yards or so . then go 12 clicks up . fire another at the same point of aim . then go 12 clicks right . fire another at the same point of aim . then go 12 clicks down another at the same point . then go 12 clicks left and another shot at the same point. you should be back to the origional pellet mark . scopes are personal taste . but you must if you can have a look through it . cos it might just be a carrot that nobody wants . if so sell it to NJR on here ??? HOLLY:)
