    Peter, the forum has been running for 16yrs, and when it was first started there were a number of people trying to join and advertise rubbish which was nothing to do with shooting. So yes, I put in the sign-up phase to try keep it to genuine shooting enthusiasts.

    And, more than likely, a foresight, handstop, buttplate etc. If not, the negotiate the price.

    £50-£60 sounds about right for a 6702. However, I wouldnt advise buying one when it is more than likely that when you get your first rifle, it will probably come with a rear sight.

    You might want to state a price; this is a condition of the Sales forum. 
    It might also be useful to mention the make of the barrel. As it's stainless, it could be a Border, Lilja etc, as well as one of the occasional factory stainless runs. The age, and known round count would be useful.

    They aren't long on the market (for the older dovetail) so I doubt you'll find a used one, best chance is a used tunnel and swap out the base.

    These are finely engineered parts, and should NEVER be tightened up like you would a wheel nut on an E.R.F.
     
    I must have said it a million times on here, be gentle with bolts whether it be on sights, buttplates or an outside toilet door.
     
    The excellently spotted item by Batty does include a new clamp and its tiny springs as well as the required bolt.

    They are M6 x0.75 pitch you can buy them from some machine suppliers - i used to buy long M6 stainless then put a 0.75 tap down it to cut my own at '10% price charged by gunshops. What most shooting suppliers charge for a simple if not that common bolt is a scandal!
     
    They can be bought from here - http://www.nssocketscrews.com/html/contact or here: http://www.stainlessautomotivefastenings.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=123_25&products_id=5002

    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.

    The thinnest iris has a 1.2mm ring thickness and the thinnest high end glass element is 1.0mm (off the top of my head)
     
    There was a guy on ebay making custom sizes to order, not sure if he is still on there.
     
    I find 1.0mm leaves the ring very pale, amd I struggle with the contrast between the ring and the target. Everyone has different perception of course.

    Honestly mate, if you're planning on doing some proper training you're better picking an ammo your rifle likes and sticking with it rather than mixing and matching with different batches and brands.

    jonty reacted to RobinC in Centra Duplex   
    Chris
    I have several of them, I had gone over entirely to using them on all our rifles and all our sights, both my wife and I. I really like them, BUT, they are very (I mean VERY) sensitive to light to set up correctly, its not just a matter of putting it on and adjusting to centre, the issue is about getting the correct size element, I also have a variable one which I used last. The principle is about judging the gap around the outside of the element and in a range with constant light such as an indoor range (or a good continental ISSF range) they are great, in any range with varying light (any UK out door range) they can need a change of element, and iris opening, or in some cases the light change is such that you can not get a gap at all and end up taking the Duplex off.
     
    Shooting to NSRA rules open shoots, you can't touch the rifle until the start of the detail so have no time to set the Duplex up to the light, if its right the light changes and you are stuffed, I even found that the variable element did not have enough varaiance to cope with some changes. Its not just range light, its inside light, outside light, and the contrast between them produces different issues, some you can adjust with rear iris size, some not.
     
    My conclusion was, great, as long as you always shoot on the same range in the same light conditions, or you shoot to ISSF timings and have time to set up at each shoot and then the light stays the same! Fabulous when shooting in constant light conditions, a nightmare when not!
     
    My wife first stopped using hers due to having problems in some open shoots with light changes and found it a complication she did not want, I persevered for a year but now I have followed suit and stopped using them, I really like them, and if we only shot on nice constant light ranges I'd still use them.
     
    I have a couple I'd sell, (both new unused) but you need to know the element size that suits you and that is dependent on several factors, your vision, iris opening, eye relief, light, etc, its difficult to advise as what suits me does not suit you.
     
    PS. You will need a sight with a MEC lenshood to fit one.

    Do you use a tube? If you dont, but decided to use one, I shudder to think what hole size you would require.
