  1. Hi from Busselton. Not too many foxes our way any more. Can't understand why
  2. Hmm. There is some Chinese stuff that looks good with some peoples videos but absolute crap with others. I watch all the info posted and see some have failed for various reasons. OK, everything can fail at times. Service when it happens, a replacement of the same thing ! When you have spent even 5 big ones and things turn to s..t you have lost your money. Re the recoil GSCI is warranted against recoil
  3. SOLD I have my Accolade XP 50 for sale (demo unit) 640x480, 17 micron. Excellent condition. Non LRF model, current list price $7700. Looking for $2500 + GST.
  4. 264 likes, that's coz I am so great. Or maybe it was from 264 ??
  5. PELICAN ! The only other option is PELICAN !
  6. OK on the 100 yds. My thoughts are that you need to see well 3 x times the shooting distance, but if you feel that the distance is all you need, no problem. Re the Wraith, I have not actually used one but I am fairly confident on the reliability being OK. No guarantees though on that of course.
  7. Hi Dale, I do fully understand your situation. It is difficult for me to really suggest a digital device to anyone, just that ATN has such a reputation. Re the Wraith, if and only if, the performance, which is limited as per their specs, will suit your requirements I have no reason to say they are bad. My problem is that I / we have been through this whole situation over a lot of years and used all sorts of devices, none of which would serve or requirements until it got into big money. This means that from my position it hard to recommend anything that is not what I would personally consider. There should be others on this site that may possibly have some first hand experience with the device, that is therefore in a better position to guide you as to suitability. Apart from selling gear I / we use it as contractors as well. I don't wish to sound like an a.........le and look down on people, but digital, any digital is not something we would sell. Military digital gear which is a different ball game. Sorry about being so negative, I wish you well.
  8. Unless something has changed VERY recently, ATN X-SIGHT have the reputation of being a very average compromise in both day and night, but the company, here and the US, is that service when required is non-existent. The opinion worldwide is do not go ATN! I understand they are Chinese.
  9. You are correct, there is a well known brand of thermal gear that the factory themselves will NOT repair after 5 years!! NOT the ones I sell though.
  10. Try telling me something I might believe
  11. Big lense, big cheek riser. Yep Does a 4 digit discount mean a 5 digit price ? Don't ask questions that you won't want to hear the answer to.
  12. Oh be a man and walk in and lay down the law and say you are going to buy one.............................................................................Then take your blanket and go sleep with the dog
  13. I am offering a Xmas special deal on the new GSCI 100 mm thermal scope to forum members. All S6100 thermal scopes ordered between now and Xmas will have reduction from the list price. Due to distributor agreements I cannot list the actual price on line, but discount will be in 4 digits. Never again at this price. These are the new 640 x 480 FPA 17 micron, having 4 X optical. Full specs are on my web site in the GSCI section. www.australianshootingservices.com.au I can give anyone full details on the deal should they care to ring me.
  14. A strange comment re the fireproof safe, "they will cook anyway". A fireproof safe will prevent that happening! If you really value your firearms a Chubb (or equivalent) fireproof with a high value rating is the way to go. Value rating is what the makers rate the value of the contents that in turn offers varying "theft resistance". They offer REAL protection from theft including a re-locker and a fireproof one is just what it says, Fireproof. You wont need to bolt it down either. OK problem, cost. I have one that I purchased used, that holds, I think, without going and counting, 22 long arms, most with scopes including 5 with very large thermal sights, so they can be found. Comment, don't confuse fireproof with fire resistant. Most approved safes are worth two squirts of cats water. They can be opened in minutes with little effort. A good safe will cost you regardless. How much do you value your "stuff", insured or otherwise.
