If your a new shooter, i would recomend the nikko over the t50.

I find them about on par with each other, depending on quality of the nikko?
Have seen very poor nikkos, but also very good.
T50 seem to be the same from scope to scope from what i have seen & used.

This is the Side wheel and Turret cover that Jon made for me, but to fit the turret cover I had to remove the original place the insert onto the turret and then fit the outer cover via 3 grub screws.
As for the T50 it is ok but as Simon can tell you I have had trouble paralaxing, for no reason other than it did not want to play on that day. It would not range find over 35 yards this was on a comp, then after approx 25 targets it started working again, I have now replaced it with a Custom Shop I no longer use it.
