    First light optics , Rothervalley , 365 and Ian King are the ones I've used for different bits. All very good so depending on what brand of scope will determine what company you use .

    For me ive used 365 Voltan there has the memory of an elephant, piece arrived broke, no worries to him he got the piece and i forgot until it arrived, others are FLO - First light optics, brilliant coms, i did try a local shop but it just seemed like they werent bothered , the door was locked, they werent helpful , which explained the large amount of scopes on the shop floor.
