I was told by a customer once that “all your builds are too hard for some of us simple folk, and can you come up with an idea that is under £200” ….. so here we are, a spotting scope with the extras it needs !
Even though this is a short to mid range build (hence it’s name) you have the ability to record and zoom with this baby, plus it’s got an IR torch built in. This build I named after Drew as he has come up with a new mount base design with better windage and elevation turrets, not only that, you can keep the mount on your rifle so never loose zero while using the scope as a spotter. Its not as cheap as the Rat Rabbit, but the mount is worth the extra cost, Still under £200, no other near eye rifle scopes at that price to date !
