    I am seriously considering buying one of these. Is there anyone who has seen one, tried one, or own one that can give me real life comparason to say a big Nikko. If its pants would sooner stick to a Nikko.
    Any help appreciated thanks.

    John at Opticswarehouse I think has had them hands on. I've heard good things myself but haven't got my sticky mitts on them yet.

    They are very good scopes, the glass and range finding are very similar to the Sightron sIII. it is slightly lighter due to not having the illuminated reticle, unlike the Sightron and the Nikko the Falcon X50 comes with both a Sunshade and Jon Harris sidewheel.

    if i was personally looking at buying a big nikko right now i would go down the Falcon x50 route with no regrets.

    Thank you for that, think I will give one a go then. Are they readily available yet, as have not found a supplier local to me, that has any. Would like a look through before handing the money over.

    we have them in stock, you are more than welcome to buy one, and have a look through it (not mount and use) and if it is not of your liking you can send back for a refund. but all must be in the same condition as it left us.

    Kind Regards

    I looked through one at the bfta champs last week.
    Nice and clear on x50 and for the money looks a good option.
    Buy it with the ft wheel.

    Had a play with one this morning.
    Nice scope, weight 1.1kg with the Harris wheel supplied and sunshade.
    The sunshade alone is 165g (so quite heavy).
    Optically very good.
    Turrets are solid and feel nice. Crisp positive clicks.
    Rangefinding is very repeatable and it easily focuses on the same mark at 55yrds every time. There is a 5mm gap between 50 and 55yrds.
    The reticle is a bit too busy with too many hashes IMO, however at 55yrds 4 of the hash marks represent a 40mm disc. It’s usable.
    Wheel is smooth; not overly stiff nor overly slick.
    Flip ups come supplied and seem to work well, there’s a lot of scope for the money and it should do well.
    Going to a quick temperature stability check and check it in dark conditions to see how it performs but all in all first impressions are excellent.

    Says in the manual 10 year warranty limited to original person that purchased the scope and is non transferable

    Sounds like a great value option for FT.
    Let’s see how it does on the FT circuit.

    Not that I’m an expert but I would buy the X50 for £800 with wheel shade and covers than a mk3.

    Sounds like a good addition to the ft range of scopes at a reasonable price.

    I've had a go with one, pretty much as has been said by others. Decent glass, snapped well and repeated flawlessly, ret is a bit busy but useable. If they prove to be consistent in optical quality then I'd recommend one.

    Falcon have been known to do silver versions of their high mag scopes, can’t wait, where do I sign up?
