To be honest the more i think on it , i cant be bothered fuffing about changing scopes over as pcp is not my bread and butter.Fowling is.Ill sell this on i think and go with a pard or wraith unit.

I have three separate 'scopes..scope attachments with IR. I have a cheap thermal which is ok out to 100yrds. I have used thermal binos costing £4000. Now for that money I can buy 40 Fox or similar spotting bonos with IR which I can see out to 250 -300yrds.  OK maybe they will last me 18 months but that is 40 times 18 months for the thermal.

Yes, thermal is great but until it comes down to sensible prices then I will use what I have.

I also have a Wraith which once sighted in is excellent at sensible ranges.

can anyone  tell me what the daytime optics are like on the pard units? Most of the time  i use my airgun on the pigeons springtime.

Hello, my friend has a 007 on his S/F scope and HMR and it's awesome , saying this there's quite a few copies that have good specs just depends what you want to spend, also I am sure you realise the scope and Pard will alter the eye relief but you can add a stock extender,

You are better off with normal scope and pard 007 for night . Imo 008 in day time is no where good as a scope

Hello, a Hawke side focus eg 3x12 and I find half mil dot reticule ideal , if you want a shorter scope a Vector optics Veyron 3x12x44 S/F ,
