    Which ever one you choose either new or used ALWAYS try before you buy as scopes are a very personal thing and what suits one may not suit you ;)

    I would keep an eye out for a decent 2nd hand big Nikko. Try and find one that you can have a go of before buying it. Same with the new scopes as well, they are not all the same!!

    Ayup Steve its Andy from Castle I shot with you this morning.
    I have a Nikko we could put on your gun next week or if you want to pick it up before on your way to Woodend as I just live round the corner.
    We could go do down and set it up for you to try then you would know.
    Leave it with you just let me know.

    Andy

    Probably not as it was posted almost 8 years ago, before we had a sales forum.
