    Bloody Hell


    I'd kick his arse if he even thought about doing that to one of my scopes........ even the cheapies.

    Good test though.

    Cheers

    @Nibblet I'd say most high end scopes would handle similar treatment and we are probably all a little overly precious with them. However, I'll not be trying it anytime soon

    @Beaker the only thing that will happen is you will get dissected 10 different ways when you post the scratched scope on here for sale.... the sky is falling!

    Lol, maybe. Chances are slim on that happening though, as i seem to be better at buying than selling.....

    I had a super accurate / reliable 4.5-14 Nikon on my 338 win mag but one day after checking my zero it was leaning against my hallway wall while i unpacked the rest of my range gear from the ute my nephew & niece went running inside playing fools and kicked it over. End result was a bent tube ! I now have a 5.5-22 NXS that should take a bashing like the vid showed but there is no way im going to try it with mine
