    Neilj62 reacted to nicklock in Spotting Scope   
    I use one of those Greenkat/Opticron angled eyepiece scopes, with a 22x eyepiece in it. It's almost 20 years old now, and as I haven't abused it it's still clear at 100 yards to the point where I can call "just out" in most light conditions...
    They're still comparably cheap, so for £600 I would expect you to be able to get something like this.

    Neilj62 got a reaction from macdonaldal in Advice On Buying A Rifle In Europe   
    I am after some advice from anyone who has experience of buying a rifle in Mainland Europe and 'importing' it into the UK.
    I am in the market for a new barrel and action, and seriously considering going out to the maker in Europe, purchasing it direct, and then bringing it home with me (I have 'authority to purchase' on my FAC) but have no idea of what hoops I would have to jump through when I get back to the UK. I am quite au-fait with the process for taking a rifle out of the UK and then returning with it, but I assume that travelling out with no rifle and returning with one will pose a different set of issues😊
    So if anyone has done this any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated
