    Scope

    A secondhand twenty fifty leupold . around the £ 800 mark . good but takes a while to learn . a good secondhand MK 111 Big Nikko with all the bits £ 500 ish . a secondhand sightron £ 800 ( but heavier than the Nikko ) having said that the steyr is a light rifle , so weight might be a good thing . ??? HOLLY

    PS have a look a warren edwards wood work for the steyr . remember it is a ten meter rifle and not very comfy as is . i got a good set for a £ 100 secondhand .

    Personally after owning many, my choice would be the Sightron...and will be for next years winter league.

    The Leups are good but take time to learn , the big Nikko is very popular but there's good and bad around.

    You need to get your arse along to Emley...:)...i've 2 different styles of woodwork and my Steyr's..ones standard but the older wood and one set is Paul wilson. I've also got a spare standard woodwork set somewhere and also an ally hamster.
