    Pulsar digiex n450

    Get a large cable tie and tie it around the adjustable part of the objective lens. The bit where the cable locks into the tie gives a bit of leverage, making it easier way to rotate the lens Cheers Bruce

    Pulsar digiex n450

    The "pecking order" for digital NV scopes from best to worst goes something like this: 1. ENV 10 (previously known as the Armasight Drone Pro) 2. Pulsar Digex 450 3. Yukon Sightline N470, ATN X Sight 4K, Pard NV008/NV008LRF 4. Sightmark Wraith Prices pretty much reflect the position in the pecking order and their NV performance. The ATN, PARDs and Wraith are all perfectly usable in daylight as well as for NV. Cheers Bruce

    Pulsar digiex n450

    It's very good, but won't work well on an S&B 8x56 No rear add-on will work well on a scope without adjustable objective/side parallax and particularly on scopes with lens coatings optimised for low light conditions Cheers Bruce
  4. Have a look at the Delta titaniums and Strykers. Optics warehouse sell them Cheers Bruce
  5. Kahles 8x42 or 10x42 Apart from giving up about 5 minutes before Swaros at dawn and dusk, there's not much in it. Great value for a cracking set of RF binos. Vortex also do excellent 10x42 RF binos for around the same price as the Kahles Cheers Bruce

    Mark Felton Productions.

    He has lots of great videos covering little know subjects. Check out a recent one where a British lightning fighter intercepts an american U2 spyplane - something the americans thought impossible. The same aircraft later went on to intercept concorde while it was doing mach 2. Cheers Bruce

    General Reflextion

    If I was been really, really generous about Corbyn, I'd say he is a left wing idealist of the type that was common in university graduates of his time. Virtually all of those people have grown up and come to realise that the ideology of their university days simply doesn't work in the real world. Unfortunately, comrade Corbyn never grew up and still genuinely believes the left wing stuff. That's why he has such a hard time giving any straight answers - he knows that if he expresses his true believes, he'll be laughed off the stage. If I was being less generous about Corbyn, you probably wouldn't print it for fear of defamation!! Cheers Bruce

    Barrel import

    My final post on this subject, and my apologies to the OP. You're still not getting it. I can't force the US seller to declare a barrel blank as a steel tube, but I can ask him. If he decides to declare it as a steel tube and falls foul of US legislation, then he takes the consequences. Blaming me, won't do him any good, because it's his, and only his decision what to put on the paperwork and no, the Feds won't come after me, because I did not commit any crime. FYI, I regularly import oilfield equipment from the USA and it's entirely up to the seller what they actually put on the paperwork. I've had cooperative sellers and uncooperative sellers, but there's nothing I can do about that. it's up to the seller to decide what to put on the paperwork. Cheers Bruce

    Barrel import

    Maybe you didn't understand - I was writing the post as the person, in the UK, trying to buy a barrel blank from someone in the USA. If the exporter in the USA breaks federal law, by trying to send me a barrel blank and finishes up in the pokey,then that's his problem, not mine

    Barrel import

    Hacking a US government computer and importing a barrel blank are not the same thing. If the company/person in the US chooses to sell a barrel blank to you in the UK, you have committed no crime in the UK or US. The company/person selling you the barrel blank my have committed a crime in the US, but it was their choice to sell you the barrel blank and therefore they, not you, have to suffer the consequences. Cheers Bruce

    Barrel import

    If you are the importer, living in the UK, breaking a US federal law is irrelevant. People in the UK break US federal laws every day, but they don't finish up in Levenworth The exporter may have a problem, but you won't
