Anyone know if they focus to 10 meters, I am aware we cannot use them but when working with blind shooters a scope and spotter help.

We have one at our club and to be honest it's hopeless, wont stay focused at 25yrds no matter what and not much good at 50m to dark, we might have a duff one as others seem to sing their praises

A number of members at my club have bought these.

Reasonable at 25m.

Pretty bad at 50m.

Unusable at 100m.

As you increase the magnification ithe picture darkens considerably, even on a bright day.

As the saying goes in the building trade, buy cheap, buy twice. Having said that, I bought some SDS masonary drill bits from Lidle in 2003 and they still in use!. But I would give the scopes a miss personally.

I've been using one for years and is excellent at 25yds is good at 50m and i have used at a 100yds and found it ok although it took a while to get it at the right magnification at 100yds but still usable
