    Scope for driven Boar

    Jimmy, I’ve used both Aimpoint and Swarovski 1-6x24 a Schmidt 2.5-10x56. All have their advantages and disadvantages, I would suggest trying before you commit if you can. Personally I prefer the Aimpoint (particularly in heavy woodland, although there can be some pretty open pegs) for driven as I just find I can get onto the pigs quicker than with a variable but occasionally the magnification is handy for longer shots, sometimes the pigs/deer aren’t that close or moving particularly fast. Whatever you get practice is more important than anything else. If I was on a budget and it wasn’t a scope going to be used solely on driven game I’d go for a variable (probably 2.5-10x56) as you have more flexibility, if your plonked in a high seat for pigs under the moon you will probably find the scope ends up set on 7 or 8 and it wouldn’t be wasted on a hill either. This is of course just my opinion which I’ve formed having spoken to, looked at what German friends (who are big into driven hunting) use and have personally used over the past 15 years or so that I have been doing driven hunts. If you have plenty of cash get swing off mounts and both an Aimpoint and variable.
  2. A friend has a Remington 700 BDL in 7mm Ultra Mag and is looking for a conversion kit to change from floorplate to magazine as his sausage fingers struggle to top load due to a picatinny rail. Can anyone advise of the best and most reasonably priced solution as the advertised ones we have seen are for other calibres and don’t want to go for it unless we know it will work. Cheers Mick
  3. Due to purchasing a different scope than planned I have a brand new set of Tenebraex flip up covers for a 5-25x56 PMII.Normally your in excess of £100-120 plus postage for these but I got them off an other member and looking to get back what I paid for them so after £78 posted. Will be advertised elsewhere. They may fit other models of scopes if you check the guide on https://tenebraex.com/ thanks Mick
  4. No problem, if you PM me we can arrange things from there. It comes as is which is how I got it.
  5. Genuine Eotech XP2. Condition is Used. I bought this second hand from Bushwear a few months ago but I’m now wanting something with magnification, mark on rear underside of rail as per photos which isn’t noticeable when mounted, works off a CR123 battery. Glass unmarked. This is the non nightvision model. Think it’s a 1moa dot with a 65moa ring from recollection. Suitable for driven boar/AR platforms etc. Looking for £225 plus postage which I’d say would be a tenner, anymore and I’ll pay the difference. Apologies for the quality of the pictures of the sight picture but they were done with my phone. Advertised elsewhere. Can’t seem to upload any more photos but can send them to interested parties.
  6. Can I get the Magpul RSA please Mark, PM me payment details inc postage thanks. Mick
