First fo­cal plane

Air Gunner - - Your Letters - Stephen Har­ris

I’d like to pur­chase a new scope, but I’d like to go first fo­cal plane be­cause you can change mag­ni­fi­ca­tion with­out hav­ing to worry about point of aim chang­ing. This would prove most use­ful in a lot of hunt­ing sce­nar­ios, as I’m sure you’ll agree; 4x mag for closerange rat shoot­ing; 6x mag for pi­geon/squir­rel shoot­ing in the woods; up to 14x mag for NV add on when rab­bit­ing. The only scope I’ve man­aged to find is a Fal­con Menace 4-14 x 44mm with a B20 il­lu­mi­nated retic­ule, which re­tails at £ 279.99 from Ut­tings.co.uk; have you any ex­pe­ri­ence of this brand/scope? If not, what are the chances of test­ing this scope or any other first fo­cal plane scopes? I’d be in­ter­ested & grate­ful for any opin­ions or help you can give me in this di­rec­tion. Hello Stephen First, fo­cal plane scopes are pretty rare th­ese days. The Light­stream range had a model a while ago, but I think it might be dis­con­tin­ued now. Just about all scope man­u­fac­tur­ers make sec­ond fo­cal plane scopes to­day, sim­ply be­cause they’re the most pop­u­lar. If you set­tle on the lat­ter you’ll have a much big­ger choice of op­tics. Ed.

all scopes made to­day are sec­ond fo­cal plane
