    1-4x scope

    Hey Team
    Just seeing what is out there in terms of optics in the 1-4x range. A friend is looking at a 7x57 and asked me if I could enquire on his behalf. Doesnt have to be anything fancy, he's a student so his budget isn't that flash haha but figured it was worth seeing what people may have lying around.
    Cheers, Wiki

    @Biggun708 that would be perfect but it's not in his price range and I don't wanna low ball you. @Shearer haha that's definitely not in the price range but cheers anyway

    Does it have to be a vari-power? Why not go to a fixed 4-power ?
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    He reackons that the fixed 4-power might be to much scope as he now wants to stick it on his 45-70

    Would 2-7x32 be OK? Brand new by Arctic Fox at $140 or I have another by Nikko in the Airking range at $170.

    @timattalon cheers for the response. I'm gonna flick him one of mine to use until he can sort himself a little more coin and then reassess down the road

    There is also a strong possibility that I will have a second hand (one owner) Leupold VX2 1-4x20 for sale. I just have to decide whether I want to keep it on the rifle or swap it for the Kahles 6x40 I have.....
