Just want to say Robo is a personal friend of mine and a lovely bloke, thats why I have invited him here.

He will give you honest, first class advice on all NV optics if you want it and he can also sell you the equipment with full warranties and guarantees as he is a Rep for Thomas Jacks.

Dont go to them... go to Robo !!! (He will look after you!!)...not that they wont... but I personally know HE WILL !

thumbs up

If you talk nicely to him he may be able to pass on a little "Members discount" Wink

Oh yeah...sounds like your on about a Yukon add on scope to me matey...Robo is deffo your man for Yukon gear...but I think from knowing his views on add-ons he would advise you to get a dedicated NV scope...mainly due to focusing and eye relief issues with the add-ons (see I was listening Robo lol)....but speak to Robo he's the man to inform ya whats what.

thumbs up

If you ever want to check some of the gear out I can also take you to see Scott (Robo) one night....maybe even on one of his little ratting spots... so you can see the scope in action...I'm sure you will be WELL impressed mate....I was !

thumbs up

hi there i think your looking for the word yukon.two options here,the nvmt2 monicle with dsa and 100mw infra red illuminator,or the cobra merlin with dsa.both will go to the back of your dayscope,although a sidewheel focus scope is advisable for focusing at different distances ,the nvmt2 is the cheapest option,followed by the cobra merlin,then the dedicated riflescope ie yukon sentinel.jase has seen this model . any questions fire away,rgds robo

The Yukon sentinel is a dedicated NV scope...ie it does not "add-on" to your day scope.. it is used instead of it....so this means either have a seperate rifle for night shooting with the NV permanantly on it or keep taking it on and off and re-zeroing it in.

The sentinel from what I have seen of it...(when using it out with Robo ratting and Bunny blasting) it is weather proof...the batteries last AGES and it can be independantly focused on the quarry very quickly and easily...plus it can quite cheaply be fitted with a doubler lense to double the magnification of the scope

Also the range is excellent if it is going on a rim fire...but you might want to upgrade your IR illuminator if you are using it at the sort of range acheivable with a rim fire...

Brilliant if your shooting where the bunnies/foxes/hares etc have had a lot of lamp this season cos they obviously cant see you like they can with a lamp...it also means people cant see you either...not that I can imagine any shooting activities where you might not want to be seen whilst out mooching and shooting scratch Very Happy

Top piece of kit in my opinion...the balance between cost and quality is spot on...nothing else touches it without spending several hundred quid extra....

N dont be tempted to buy from flea bay there are a lot of nasty "grey imports" on there with little if any warranty....I may be wrong but I think you get 3 Years warranty if you buy from Robo

Something to bear in mind...the tubes have a shelf life and the more bright light that gets accidentaly shone in to the tube (street lights & farm building lights etc)whilst using it will dramaticaly reduce the shelf life...so buying second hand from flea bay could mean you save £50 or more on the initial lay out... but it could all go "POP" within hours of you using it, as you dont know how much stick it has had...then you have s**t your pot full.

Hope this helps thumbs up
