    As above, seen one of these for sale & it looks like the EB sniper, looked through it & it's optically very good. Anyone use one in HFT? How does it fare ?
    Was thinking of buying it & trying it on my MPR for a bit as I want a black scope anyway....
    Info anyone :)

    I used one for a while, good optics and suprised not seen more on the HFT scene to be honest, but the new Sightron 10x42 is very similar build and looking forward to trying one.

    Cheers Pete, I may take a punt on it then, it's cheap enough.
    Why did you change from it by the way ?

    It was a loan one from AndyIOW and then i bought one and used it for a bit, but EB sent me one to test and started to use that then, but the Nikko defo a good scope and shame they don't bring them back.

    If it's the one with the parallax ring where the mag ring on a variable mag scope normally is then they're rare as the proverbail rocking horse poo!

    Chris (Sam Vimes) loves them and is always on about them. ;)

    I had one of these rear paralax versions but mine was the TASCO Super Sniper. Great scopes. Buy it.:)

    Zero'd it outside earlier on my permission, 1st impressions are good, I ended up shooting the flies landing on my zero paper at 25yds :D & then put in a sub 5p size group at about 45 yards off my hand in a blustery breeze, we will have to see how well I get on with it on a course.....
