I can't afford £700 for a Big Nikko, or £450 for a T50 - at present.
Is there ANY scope available which can rangefind in the 45-55 yard area to an adequate degree to allow a shooter to be competitive?
Up to approx. £300
I am leery of going down the used scope route, as there are many horror stories, and you have no comeback from a used scope.
Obviously something in this price range would not be good, but are there any which are passable?
I sold a Nikko and let the buyer try it for a month or so before they bought it. If you can do that on a 2nd hand deal then it can be better than buying new, in my opinion.
