“The advantage from the combination of FFP and high quality glass was great, as was the high magnification for zeroing and the longer shots.. Overall this really is the competitive edge if the rest of my kit was this quality, I would have been far happier with the results”

“The optics were a great set of kit, which allowed all of us to shoot to the maximum of our ability, it was great to arrive at a world shoot, competing against the best in the world, knowing that the optics aren’t going to let you down. They are robust enough to get thrown around in a course of fire and know you are still going to have a zero”
