Photon Xt

Recommended Posts

Bought myself a photon after much deliberating and researching about them and got to say very happy with it , only been using it to kill rats that are eating my chicken feed at the moment, 12 rats in just over 2 weeks !!! i've only got 3 chickens , i knew there was the odd 1 or 3 visiting but untill i looked with the photon I never would have thought so many were getting free food ... brilliant bit of kit well happy with it , hoping to zero it soon at 35 yards and get out for some bunnies ... ATB ....

out of interest what distance are you taking these rats at and is the picture clear,like to hear what its like at rabbit ranges as well,and which rifle are you using it on,guessing pcp but wondering what it'd be like on top of a springer...

I am only using it at around 15 yards range and the image is clear you can easily pick out the rats and you get eye shine from the ir .. I have it on my hw 100 .177 .. guys on here are using them on rabbits with success ...

I sold mine recently, brilliant bit of kit, I was just not using it, but will get another at some point,or maybe the Ward d 700 so I can use it on anything from air rifle, to .243 for foxing.

Ward 700 are a great bit of kit with the right scope

 

I take it that they are scope fussy. Do you know what works or not. Needless to say I had a look at the web site after you gave me the info.
