Just seen this new model on the Uttings site. £660
Do you mean this? I can't find it on the Uttings site. Nikko Stirling Hornet ED 10-50x60 Illuminated Half Mil Dot Rifle Scope - Optics Warehouse
I suspect its the same scope, but Uttings call it the ED Sniper, Look on Nikko Sterling section its on page 2 about 1/2 way down.
Looks interesting. Comes with sunshade and end caps for less money than the "standard" Nikko we've all been using. Also has a complicated ret. for FT use... With those extra bits, it's more of an HFT ret. They must have saved money on the glass, wonder how different it is?
Aha! Nikko Stirling Diamond Sportsman ED Sniper 10-50x60 IR Rifle Scope
£590 here... Nikko Stirling Diamond Hornet ED Scope | Algatec Outdoor
EDIT: They are located in Spain.
Someone tried that scope?
Strangely enough I’m now looking st this one http://www.nikkostirling.com/content/Products/Diamond/Diamond Long Range/NDSI104056LRHMD.html
The Hornet is exactly what I want from high mag. scope. I just wonder about its ranging capabilities but beeing so new I should wait for feedback
mmmmm might try one on the TX
Some of these don't mention ED glass in the blurb so would suspect that although the glass has various coatings the glass itself is a lower quality.
Worth a punt though. Buy on the internet and get 7 days to carefully try it out. Distance selling laws are great
On manufacturer webpage they say ED glass.
Here is the link.
I wonder what's the difference except reticle and illumination compered to the big Nikko.
What? Take the Delta off?
i dropped it and broke it Daz lol
That's so far what I found about the Hornet:
Looks like it is a china made Chinese ED glass diamond sportsman. I wonder how much it differ optically from the "original"
Otherwise the diamond sportsman HMD IR is the closest match
Someone something? I really "want to believe" that the hornet is at least as good as the diamond sportsman but my intuition tells me it's not..
Simply someone has to buy it and try it.
My vote is for Steve as he needs a new scope for his Daystate anyways....
My vote is for Marin to buy one.
Marin is always looking for that ' hidden gem, diamond in the rough'.
Time to spend Marin
