1st Action For The Home Build.

Post by creakindoor » 01 Mar 2013, 17:48

Put my Watec based home build on the back of the .223.
I have changed the viewfinder to a GGS Perfect, better build quality & a diopter adjustment.

Went & sat in a high seat looking down a woodland ride yesterday evening & as the light went
& the woodland floor disappeared in the gloom I switched the Watec on & was really pleased
Just how good it is. Pheasants were easily seen although I could not see them with the naked eye,
& didn’t need to switch the illuminator on till it got really dark.
Upload video to Youtube my 1st time so just raw unedited footage sorry if it’s a bit long & boring.

No sign of a fox my quarry so I trudged home.
I decided to have a last look across the field behind the house.
Switching the Watec on I scanned & 100yds away trotting across the field is a fox.
A quick squeak the fox stops broadside on crosshair on her shoulder…one dead fox.
As soon as I shot I remembered I hadn’t pressed the record button…damn.

I have yet to touch the settings...must read the manual.
Yes LVSF barrel chopped to 16".
Yes you can see between the pixels but at least I can use it without having to wear my reading glasses.

What sort of eye relief do you have with that loupe? Do you need to be close to it?
Land Rovers, who would be daft enough to own one?

Looks like a nice setup. Only thing I would pick at is the scope image is blurry around the edges, which is probably because the camera lense is setup too close to the scope eye piece, just like the wrong eye relief when your daytime shooting.
