Torch for lamping bunnies


Recommended Posts

Ground is far too sodden these days for driving on, and can’t use landowners Gator while this virus is about, understandably, so am going back to my early days and considering strapping a torch to my rimfire again. 
I don’t want a lamp, I’m looking for something light, slim and powerful, capable of throwing a good light out to about 100 yds ( more would be nice but am not too fussed ) which I can strap to my CZ. 
What do you use? Cheers

I have a Clulite  175m beam  3 hrs duration on high and 4hr recharge.  Brilliant little lamp. Comes with attachmet for Telescope and charger.

Model MG 125

That sounds promising. Thankyou. 👍

I use cheap Chinese CREE torches, run on 18650 batteries like a vape, they have flood and spot adjustment. Mine are good for a about 70yds, you can buy stronger ones than I have but I'm only using it on an air rifle so went for the weaker ones.

Theyre light, fit in clamps and mounts easily, cheap enough that it doesnt matter if they get lost or damaged, 18650 batteries are small, easy to carry and easy to recharge.

 

Theyre like £7 each.

on the bay 193849285582

you will not get 450m but you will get your 100

I use one of these for spotting as it is light and quick and easy to swing around and spot eyes

I use a yukon photon for a scope as a permanent set up

I have one of these mounted onto my CZ455 with a rat tail switch for taking shots, and another torch from the same company that I use hand held for scanning. Both in red LED. I also use a green laser for close range / bolting bunnies. 

I don’t believe in waving a loaded rifle about to scan fields, tires your arms and seems unsafe.

Hello, as above and the Night Sabre 👍

As said - the night sabre is amazing with the extra powerful LED - can't recall what that option is called.

75mm lens torches are so last years heavy bulky tools these days.

Hello, mine has the HPR but I think there is a better one available, I have added a 37mm camera 2 X magnification lens, at 100 yards i can see a rabbits whiskers 😁, with Hawke 4x12x50 SF,

Too many options now! 😀
It’s going to take a while to study them all online, but well worth the time. Have found several which are available with scope mounts, so thanks all. Much appreciated. 👍
