Thanks Paul, so is you S400 standard stock, have you modded in any way?
2013 s400 classic in a mpr stock, rowan stripper , rowan ajusterable trigger. And that's it. It's still got the Anti tamper. With a zos 10-40x60 scope on top.
Paul, what does the MPR stock offer over the std one
it was mainly for hft . So i could get the right fit. I left it on for benchrest and attached a wood block to the accessorie rail. Block is 2" 7/8 x 4". I'd put a pic on but not sure how to....
Paul, how do you find the ZOS scope, is it any good in low light, any positives or negatives welcome.
Hi Phil. Iv got one of the first ones. not sure if the new ones are any better. I brought it for FT but never really got round to setting it up. Iv been using it for bench rest. Iv manager to get really good scores with the scope but now I have a few more scope to compare it with I would say it's not very good. At 36mag looking at a benchrest card its not very clear. Bit blurry, glass looks dirty and of a low quality. Iv play around with it. And I'll be changing it soon!!!
Thanks Paul, there doesn't seem to be a massive choice out there, I am considering getting a fixed Mag, I am not shooting FT yet just HFT. It's not a cheap purchase though
Fix, look at the sightron 36x
As above , I use a Sightron 36 mag, really clear glass and a very small target dot that fits inside the bull ,(UKBR22 cards .)
Or a Weaver T36 if you can get one !
Cheers, nearly 500 new though
Thanks for your feedback
Is there a zoom that would double up for BR and FT?
Yes , but they do come up for sale s/h , but you've got to be quick these days with the increased interest in BR they go quick !
Thanks, is there much difference between the weaver and sightron apart from a hundred quid
In my opinion the Weaver seems a better quality finish , optically I can't tell the difference apart from the eye relief was closer on the Weaver and I found it slightly harder to acquire the target initially. I had a Weaver , sold it ( silly) and bought two Sightrons. The new Sightron seems lighter than the older one and on the new one the 25m focus mark is more towards the 30m mark.The focus is very sharp on both scopes .
The older Sightron is bang on with its focus marks.
Thanks I'll try and get a look at them, I think either will suit my needs
Optics warehouses do the sightron x36 for about £480 but I saw on a European site for £430. I'm going for a Weaver T36 a friend of mine has got one.
