  • Ebay Spotting Scope

    Hi guys and gals, on the previous forum I posted a topic regarding an ebay spotting scope I brought. I have used it now many times and I have found out to about 3-400mtrs it works really well (albeit a little hard to find the correct eye relief), anything past that and it is good but not very detailed.

    I think for those starting out and on a tight budget, this would work really well for them. I have attached the link and some photos for you to look at and am happy to talk about it in pm if anyone has any questions.

    I found a good one at Australian Geographic Store for $50 - looks and sounds similar and provides good vision to the distances you are talking about. For a starter spotting scope tou cant go wrong. Once I get serious about long range shooting, an upgrade is in order.

      Yeah, I've used those types of cheap spotters too. Although the glass quality isn't on par with the $1000 club scopes I've used they do the job for what they are & what they cost, and are fine out to 200-300m (eye relief on the highest magnification tends to be a little short though, & you'll find yourself shoving your eyeball right into the rubber eye-piece). I wouldn't use cheap glass on my rifles, but to simply observe the results of my shooting I'd rather spend the money I save by buying a cheap spotter on more ammo or another rifle.
