Default FT scope for a Springer?


Clive is in the process of sorting out an FT rig with one of his HW97's - he has used a Big Nikko with his MPR but we have heard the Nikko's are not too good on a Springer, suffering from zero shift etc.....

Does anyone know of any problems with the Nikko's on Springers and what alternative good FT scopes there are out there?

Any advice would be good!

I've had small shifts with the custom shop/deben series, but that could be mounts settling or the same things that affect pcp's. It seemed to happen in the warmer weather so perhaps the mounts just opened up in the warm. Only happened in the vertical plane though, windage stayed spot on.

They certainly survived the recoil.
