kenny the only thing with the sightron is the turrets do not lock in place. dnic was knocking his sliding it in and out of his rifle bag unzeroing his scope :shock:
he has sent it back to the dealer and it has gone back to the usa to have larger bb put in the turret to make it stiffer to go from click to click.

For me, parallax was the biggest issue when I shot HFT so the Connect would be the one for me every time. Makes a great all purpose scope too (except FT). Lightstream would be a close second as when set up right they have a very thin ring around the image which can be used to check you are looking through the scope centrally.

cheers Paul I remember looking through tony tyrers early connect for the first time & it was strange seeing the barrel in the picture but the image was clear & very wide.

got to borrow my friends connect, the latest one with the scb2 xmas tree reticle and mounted it on my wolverine.
well glad i got to try just not for me im afraid ! my biggest issue with it is the ret is just too dam fine for me, it disappears in the gloom and makes it very hard to see, yes i know i can switch the ir on but thats not the point, would forget to switch it on before a hft comp anyway! also at twenty yards the ret disappeared on the black smk target i was using in the garden. i didnt like the way the scope dictated to me what angle to have my head on the stock as well, shame because i like the idea and concept behind the scope, just not for me!
did make me appreciate how much i prefer my hawke tac 30 when i put it back on my rifle :D

Kenny,

For me it would be the MTC Connect or the Bushnell. Not being sure I would go for the MTC as the starting point and go for the SCB reticule you are familair with, myself i dont like the AMD ret. The Connect is the scope I want to go for on both my FAC Huntsman and MK4.

A few of the very first ones into the country were reported to be "soft clickers"...

...all I can say is that on mine :D there's no way they would be moved by mistake, very positive in a clunk/click sort of way.

AIM Field Sports (UK importer) will do the upgrade gratis, if it had to be sent to the U.S then perhaps it was a personal import? Bigger balls would make mine overly hard :o :lol: to twiddle...

Anyway Kenny, you can have a squint through mine when we eventually meet up.
