    Wondered that ,
    (I found one advertised!)
    I couldn't find a review or anything. I have the pm11 but its a bit heavy for work and has to much going on.
    Could this 12x56 be a discontinued item or is it likely to be a fake

    After a quick Google search it looks like it might be an old model - steel tube by the looks of it.
    Not much good for shooting the close stuff!

    Yes I have one bloody good scope only down side for small game is they have a picket post reticle the modern version has a mil dot type reticle but are very expensive, an 8x56 should be ok for head shots at 250 metres
    I have head shot hares at 200 metres with a 6x on my .222 with out any problem.
