    Falcon X50 Quick rundown

    Been playing with this scope since they were released in the UK. What can I say except buy one if you are in the market for a Ft scope and your budget is 1500.00 or less. I compared it to a Nikko illuminated and a sightron MK3. Sightron Mk 3 has been my goto scope for years now. It just suits my eyes. My order of preference at the moment is Sightron, Falcon, Nikko. TBH theres nothing between the falcon and the sightron. It snaps just as good. 50, 52.5 and 55yds are easily discernible.
    Ive been using it on a Diana 56 and a TX 200 and so far shot around 3k pellets. The only reason i put sightron first is coz im used to it and could just make out the text on my range card at 55 yds a little quicker. I like the reticle on the Falcon best too. Clicks are a little soft for my liking as continual in and out of gun bag has resulted in windage turret moving. Not done temp shift test yet but will get round to it sometime. Oh, my sightron sidewheel fits as does the rowan mag lever
    Condolences to all who have bought a nikko or a sightron as I think the resale value just plummeted

    Falcon X50

    Can I ask you some questions please.

    1. Is it longer than a big Nikko.
    2. Is it heavier than the Nikko.
    3. Where can you get one.
    4. Do you think it is a clone of the Sightron.
    5. What is the price for it.

    Finally had you never owned or used the Sightron would you have bought the Falcon and been happy with it.

    Many thanks.

    Luckily I managed to get shot of the Nikko so you will have to go and look at specs for comparison.
    3. I bought mine from falcon uk direct but opticswarehouse do them i think
    4. Yes it's very very close to a sightron, all but the reticle. But thats just my opinion.
    5. 699 without sidewheel.
    As I own both and am able to compare and if I needed another FT scope I would buy the Falcon.
    Bare in mind I'm an old git and have crap eyes. But both scopes certainly suit them.
    Hope that helps.
