The sound isn't too great and I haven't got time to go over it again one thing I did pick up was the scope, it ranges from
1:8 x 24. I couldn't hear what he was saying about distances.

I hazard a guess, the scope above is the night version ?
SNAFU or Surfguy...any buddy else?
I concur. Deffo night vision configuration for the regular scope. Given that there are two mounting brackets in the above image, I think what we're seeing is an additional NVD attachment that both slides over the regular scope, and mounts to the picatinny rail. I'm guessing it's light amplification rather than thermal, and might even sport an IR laser. Pretty Gucci piece of kit*, really; and that's coming from a Yank.

* IOTW, A very nice piece of equipment.

It looks like the NV is an add on , it mounts on the picatinny rail in front of the day scope , I`d guess it would have a QD mount so you can take it off and back on in a couple of minutes and keep the NV in your pack, , the good thing is with this set up is wont affect zero of the day scope...in theory.

1-8x24 is very low magnification but it does allow quick target acquisition on the lowest setting , on max setting of 8 at 800 meters your "man sized" target will still look pretty small , its a sharpshooter set up not a sniper set up in my opinion, its not a precision rifle.

The day scope is a Schmidt & Bender PMII , 1-8x24 , you can buy these as a civilian , price is around £2400.00 , very good scope , the 5-25x56 PMII is also used by British armed forces.

Okay, thanks for the info, Crawballs and Smurfguy...
@ Smurfguy, are you sure that this optic costs £ 2400 a piece?
If true, I could fill my bath tub a couple of hundred times with coal at that price (priorities and stuff)
Thanks any way

Yep , they aren't cheap S&B , I`m not sure what make/model the NV add on is.
