    22 Rifle Torch

    Hi Everyone

    From looking through the forum I can see this subject has been thrashed already but before I go and spend my money can someone please review what I'm considering doing here and confirm for me that I'm on the right track? I live on a lifestyle block and use my TOZ 22 with a Hubertus 4x20 scope for pest control (possums and rabbits). It's mainly night shooting (certainly for the possums anyway), and I need to up my game from using my headlamp to light up the target.

    I am thinking of getting one of these:

    and using that to mount one of these:

    https://www.lightmalls.com/new-ultra...0-not-included

    By my calculation I'll come out at just under $50 all up which seems like a good deal (if that combo will be ok for my needs). Actually it will be more like $55 as I will need to get a battery too - I assume I should get that from Lightmalls at the same time as I get the torch?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Sorry dont have any experience with those items but if you can stretch the budget a bit have a look at the following thread.

    https://www.nzhuntingandshooting.co....maxtoch-50935/

    Pick up a Maxtoch M1 Archer. Fantastic little light. Perfect for a scope mounted light. Run one between my .22 and .17hmr.

    Hi, welcome to the forum. Have a look at maxtoch as said before. Also you might want to think about getting a scope with a bigger front end. It'll let more light in and give you a better picture. Try for at least 4x32 or 4x40.

    Spring some $$$ on a Maxtoch, you won't regret it. They are awesome torches.

    The maxtochs are also really handy on lifestyle bocks for ; looking for pets / animals, looking for prowlers, wandering around looking at stuff,

    I got a maxtoch years ago, never looked back. Its brilliant.....
