  1. Bought for me earlier this week from Amazon for £220, but I'll never use it. I don't need to see stuff 300 yards away and am quite happy with my wee Exelon. Turned on to ensure it is working, otherwise unused. £180 inc signed for postage. This monocular is exactly the same as the Bushnell Equinox Z.

    swap- ATN X ll HD 5-20 DAY AND NIGHT SCOPE

    You can buy a used Photon XT for £300, or slightly less. Your ATN has got to be worth at least £400.....more on ebay.

    Photon Doubler

    I have a XT 6.5x50 on my 17 WSM and find it excellent at night when topped with a Ledray Tracer F900. Would like to try one of these doublers....push on, none of this tampering with the actual Photon unit itself. So, with this in mind, I've a few questions: - what is the best 'push on' doubler? - do they come with an adapter? - does a doubler make the photon better, or even worse in daylight? - will I need to rezero?

    Solaris srx

    They're like 'hens teeth' at present.....I've preordered mine and anticipated delivery has slipped twice.

    Savage WSM??

    Is it threaded?.....doesn't seem to be.

    Savage WSM??

    I'm not convinced that bedding the action of a rimfire makes much difference......others no doubt will disagree. I have always found rimfires to be inherently accurate.....the little 17's in particular. The HMR I traded in against the WSM was the most accurate rifle I have ever owned...0.5" at 100 yards in the right conditions, so it was with some trepidation that I made the decision to go for the WSM. Must say though, I have been pleasantly surprised. The CZ HMR was. imo, a better quality rifle, but the WSM is almost as accurate and definitely hits much harder......wind drift is also much reduced. I just wish CZ made a WSM.....

    Hawke Vantage SF

    Thanks chaps......I actually managed to get a very good image using the Gameking, but refocusing is nigh on impossible. Super crisp image at 100-150 yards though. Hopefully the Vantage will make things a whole lot easier.

    Bins suggestions please

    Hawke Frontier ED or Vortex Diamond. Both superb for the money.

    Hawke Vantage SF

    Just ordered a 3-12x44 for use with a NV Addon as my main scopes are Kahles and Docter fixed mags. I have a Nikko Gameking AO which works to some extent, although the AO is very difficult to turn and I'm not convinced it makes a great deal of difference when it does. The Vantage with SF is supposed to go well with these Addons.....just wondering if anyone is actually using this scope as part of their NV kit and how do they rate it?

    Savage WSM??

    Yes Dekers, have had it since June. Must say, thus far, I'm very please with it. I initially used it with a wee 6x42 Docter. Proved very accurate and definitely hits harder than my previous HMR. It is also much better in windier conditions than the HMR. The bolt soon becomes a non issue, although I do still 'short stroke' it on the odd occasion. Ammo wise, I have only used the 20g Hornady.....that is all that is available locally. Luckily though, this has proved very accurate. The only issue I've had is a couple of failures to extract empty cases.....it appears this is an ammo issue though. The magazine takes a bit of getting used to in terms of loading, however it cycles really well and has proved very reliable. I wasn't sure if I'd like the thumbhole stock, having only ever used traditional wooden ones, however I've come to realky like it and would consider putting one on my 223. I currently use my WSM for night shooting....have it topped with a Photon XT 6.5x50, wich along with a Tracer F900, is excellent. I use the Wildcat Whisper 17 that I previously used on my HMR and I don't find the WSM noticeably louder. A SAK would probably moderate just as welk, but the Whisper is much more robust and should handle the pressure better. Overall I'm pleased with the WSM....the Savage has proved very accurate and feels very well balanced in the hand.....still consider CZ a much nicer rifle though.

    Absolute steal!

    LL-760 Night Vision

    To be fair both chaps from Nightvisionstore and CRS covered this in a very lengthy thread on another forum and I'm sure neither would wish to have to go over it all again. Don't think I'd have an issue buying from either.......both seem decent enough chaps.

    LL-760 Night Vision

    I would of thought the Kwikfit unit made by 'Somebloke' is the closest thing to what you want. The ir is attached to the screen/power unit. Supposed to be very good.

    LL-760 Night Vision

    That is very interesting Rewulf. The unit doers seem very light and portable....would be very handy when I'm out on my own. Thanks for the clarification.
