£250 seems to be the going secondhand rate for one of them. Thats how much i paid hated it was an understatement and sold it the following day. :)

Horses for courses, mate. I had a 10-50x60 BSA and couldn't fault it (other than the fact that it was too big to put on any other gun apart from an FT rig.. :0 )

I found the rangefinding was easy but I did have to get a custom sidewheel put on it to allow greater differential between 40 and 55 yrd ranges.

Aint got it now, gone back to basics with a 3-9 x 52/44 (one of those EXP things)

All the best

Gary - I have used several FT scopes and I find the Big BSA to be spot on.

My scope has the Ian Taylor Side Wheel extension and it is fantastic for ranging out to 60 yards.

Negative comments I have heard are that the quality can vary from scope to scope, the turrets are only 1/8th MOA and some people don't like the crosshair (thin lines + single dot in centre).

If you haven't bought a scope by the TD shoot then you can have a look through mine and give it a try.
