    Anyone got a variable scope lying around?

    Hey team! So have I just upgraded the young fellas shooter to a centre fire in the weekend but ended up paying a bit more than I had planned...

    Does anyone have a basic variable powered scope lying around that that are not needing? Preffable dirt cheap...

    Worth a shot 😕, plan is to get him some thing better in the near future, so will pass on any deals I recieve to other members when replaced.

    @Shooter

    I have a 6-24x50 no name cheapie that was on my 308 for four years and done a good job of it too.

    Your welcome to borrow it until you can upgrade.

    Cheers
    Pete
