      VCR Bill

      Since the introduction of the "latest" VCR bill on 1st October 2007, sales of AIRGUNS (including replicas) AND MAJOR COMPONENTS (barrels, cylinders etc.) by DEALERS is restricted to a face-to-face transaction.   Please ensure you are familiar with the changes brought about due to the VCR act, which may be viewed on the BASC website.   BASC and ACPO have produced a guide to the VCR act in PDF format, which avoids legalese and is very understandable. See HERE.   AirGunForum members must ensure their transactions conform with current legislation before posting.   An inter-dealer network to facilitate the continuation of mail order business is being established by Portland Jon. Details are HERE or direct to his website HERE.

Don't forget to identify yourself and do use your registered email address to make contact. All this is necessary, as admin must be able to identify who you are and that it is your post that you wish to edit.   Admin. will make the edit if it appears necessary. Note, if you want to change something that could easily be achieved by adding a further post to the thread, you will be expected to do it.   Forum staff generally view new posts added to threads since their last visit.

HAKKO .

Recommended Posts

A while ago old clarky bought a hakko 8+32 by 56 down at ETL good scope with a great ret ( nato i think ) but it just did not cut it when it came to rangefinding . not quite enough mag it seemed . anyway i had talked to several shooters who said that the debens 10+50 by 56 were the dogs danglys . so i tried one of these .nope they were just to dark and on a long shooting session made my eyes tired . but having said that were probably the best rangefing scope i have ever tried ( ask simona ) anyway the other day a 10+40 came up on the for sales section here . it was on a pro target . did not want the rifle but thought on RN10 might be interested in it . so popped around to terrys and steves place to pick it up today . took it down the club to give it a run out . put it over the chrono . crept up to 770s after a few shots . cleaned the barrel after seeing what it would do on the zero range . one way of telling whether your barrel is a good one is to shoot it dirty , then shoot it clean . it should improve clean . well it did . so started to try grouping . yes pretty good , not much wind out today and it went into half a inch most of the time . this was on some old exacts 4.53s i had with me . might do better on air arms 4.52 . but anyway onto the scope , really clear on 10 mag as you would expect . up to my fave mag 30 and that was when the sun came out . straight down the range/scope , sod it . i tried a bit later on but really it was not much better . so although i got an idea of how it might go , nothing conclusive . only thing i can say is that it resolve's pellet marks really well , which is a good sign . but the ranges on the sidewheel were very close together . so may need another wheel .anyway for what is basically a cheap scope it has the makings . the best bit i saved to last , on full mag it comes down to about seven yards . now that cannot be bad /??

hi holly,the sidewheel markings may not be 100% accurate as i only done them on the quick + it was way to much mag for me as i normally shoot on x6 mag for all types of shooting.

Yes steve . i found that out , or at least Big Paul did ( our resident gob on a stick ) good little scope . cos i have too many scopes . i need something that is simple ( like big paul ) the fact that it comes down to about seven yards is a plus factor . ( no 50 adapter ) i look forward to trying it out properly ??? HOLLY
