Are these scopes for recoilless rifles only?
A member of staff at a local retailer is telling me the opposite.
I'm very impressed by the scope, but would like to know it's intended application before I splash the cash.
A buddies got an MTC Connect on an AR-15 in .30 calibre M1 Carbine.
Works a treat
Is there diopter adjustment to compensate for mild long or short sightedness ?
See here and put your mouse over the eyepiece close-up.
Scout and Proud!
just got hold of a connect with amd ret, mounted on my airwolf am i impressed
got this one second hand and still have one reserved with mtc as and when they arrived might get the scb ret in that one
going to give hft a go with it
this scope seems lighter than normal scopes when mounted but this may be due the were the scope has to be mounted thus putting the weight into the shoulder
but so far very impressed
I picked one of these up in The Airgun Centre, Rayleigh on Monday. A chap was just having one fitted to his HW100 so I thought I'd better grab one before stock ran out. Tony Belas happened to be in the shop, so I spent more time chatting to him than ogling the scope. Once I'd got home and removed it from its compact box (thankfully, not a Hawke-style burial casket!), I set about finding a rifle to attach it to. I have plenty of 30mm mounts but the BKL were much too high. Most mount manufacturers seem to expect their 30mm mounts to accommodate scopes with monster objectives, so smaller scopes tend to be perched up too high. I have a similar problem with the Leupold MR/T. Experiments so far indicate that I'm going to need much lower mounts to avoid a rick in the neck or to fit the scope on a rifle with an adjustable cheek piece, preferably one that incorporates lateral adjustment, like the Rapid Tactical.

I have a 40mm version (one of the prototypes) on my HW100, and I astill have a good eye position with a bridging piece under the objective (between front and rear parts of the action).
I will have to use slightly higher mounts on my production version as it is going on the 410k, where the mag sits quite high.
I like a low scope as it gives better cheek weld and balance, I have just changed the scope on my huntsman from a 25 to 30mm tube and have had to go single shot...the mounts just wont accept the mag without a half inch gap under the objective...not nice, still, I dont hunt with it a lot so not a biggie
Great little scopes though eh, great for picking tree rats out in the gloom...even if I do then miss the twig in the way...ah well
Superb low light as well, and the IR with the AMD ret is really precise.
One thing I have found is that it pays to focus the eyebell on a distant object rather than the sky and ret.
I thought one of mine would not focus down close enough, but I think this was the problem. I was reading a sign on a house some way off that I could just see with the naked eye as a blob, very sharp when the eye bell was corrected a bit.
What the hell was that then????
On the images posted by Peakecentral, the image taken looking through the connect seems to be quite a bit darker than through the conventional scope. Has anyone found this to be the case?
So did I until you mentioned the difference ( which i thought as you did) then went back to have another look
Have got to get me one of thee little scopes!
So for the mounts a 30mm low or medium to go on my .22 R10?
I'm not clued up on mount heights and pros and cons of each.
I don't have a mag system that sits high, my rail is flat with mag built in to block, so could use a low mount?, would this have any advantages over a medium say?

What I would say is try and borrow some medium and high and try it out.
This new connect works pretty well without the eye bellows.
This is good news for wearers of bicycle optics..., or if you shoot prone/off of a bipod a lot.
The old unit used to pretty well demand your head was at right angles to the eye piece to get a good sight picture, and it was not too clever without some sort of eyepiece.
The new Connect works well either way, and is pretty flexible, so try what you can.
If you have a mag that prodrudes where the objective sits, you are probably looking at high mounts though.
If you get something that is fairly slim (BKL etc) you will have room for a lamp etc on the front end.
What the hell was that then????
