    Hi Guys,

    Can you recommend me an entry-level FT scope?

    At the moment I'm looking at:

    Nikko Stirling Targetmaster 10-50X 60 IR
    MTC Viper 8-32X 60 SCB

    I've got a budget of £280ish, and I'd like to be able to get my hands on a suitable scope so that I can attend my first FT shoot this weekend.

    Cheers,

    Cam.

    Agree with chris...buy it once get a nikko diamond 10-50*60 i went down the cheap route of an mtc viper 8-32 when i started ft sun white out etc nightmare changed it for a mk3 big nikko 3 months later. Just get a good secondhand nikko if you can get an origional receipt with a second hand one you will proberbly get the balance of the 15 year warranty..
