What Lamp Do You Use On Your Rifle ???

Recommended Posts

Hi Lads,


I was out lamping on my own last night,after fox,With the .223 and the hand held 170. As per my norm, I got into a few difficulties lamping and shooting.on my own.

I am thinking of getting a scope mounted 170.But I cant see a variable option are they available????? I will be mounting it on a centrefire and a rimfire. Any advice welcome.




I was wondering what the boys who lamp single handed use??




Thanks in advance

Nightmaster 800 with the x searcher head and red pill , walking around I use a plr 500 wireless and when I see Charlie just put rifle on sticks and turn the nightmaster on

My only gripe is I need the adjustable mount whicjh is about 50 quid

Whatever you go for have a thought for how it will fit on your gun. I use a T67 on top of a 50mm Sidewinder. That's nearly 7 inches from the top of the barrel. It just about fits in the gun slip. Think also of the light clearance. You don't want it so far back that it lights up the front of the scope/barrel. Mine is infra red so possibly don't have to worry about the lighting up bit although I'm not so sure.

It used to look like a block of flats but I've recently acquired a night rangefinder courteously provided of Shane at CRS, Without drilling holes in my Annie the only place to put the picatinny rail for it is on the body of the T67 so now it looks like the international space station. Good job I use quad sticks cos I can't carry it around for too long.

      Hello all.🙂
      Just an update as it has been a while.I have been looking for a subsonic .22LR hollow point that shoots well from a cold clean bore and have recently started using RWS subs which do well, typically from the first shot..I have used a few different brands of subsonic H.P.s and they all group quite well after 5 or so fouling shots, but RWS like the cold clean bore,needless to say I am a happy and for me, decent shooting.🙂.I have used the RWS before in the old Annie 1416 DG and it was equally consistent in that rifle.
      A couple of typical below all from a cold clean bore..My scope is a Hawke Vantage x2 -x7 32mm A.O. with illuminated reticle which is a great field scope but lacks magnification for target shooting so is sometimes difficult to deduce if a shot has been pulled, but I love the scope.
      Have a good weekend all.🙂

      Hi all, just an update.I have had this rifle for over a year now and still really like it a lot. I have not modified it in any way and it is as out of the box.
      It is an easy rifle to shoot well with a pretty good trigger (pulling at 2.6 lbs out of the box and very smooth), accurate, lightweight and utterly reliable.
      I now have the benefit of hindsight and  purchasing this rifle was a good decision and I would do so again absolutely.
      I use an inexpensive but very good Hawke Vantage x2-x7 32mm A.O. scope with an illuminated reticle. I sometimes use a SAK moderator on the gun, a very good mod.
      Have a good weekend.🙂.
