  12. Hi Chris the 102 looks like all metal from the photos ,perhaps you should swap for one of those Gordon
  13. Hi Chris top of the range from Dixons was cheap when compared to the other scopes on offer from the other co's at that time, I think my 550 was about £35 in 1968 ish? but I might be remembering wrongly and it was pretty awful in terms of build quality, the 660 was much better still I thought it was wonderful at the time cheers gordon
  14. They were fairly cheap scopes back when new, I had the Prinz 660 and the 550 still have the 550 they came from Dixons I think, love to hear about the Bresser 102/1300 when you get it Gordon
  15. Staring at photos of the 102/F13 ,figure hovering over the buy now button, trouble is wife also hovering I have to work out if my fear of her outways my desire for another scope which can join the other two I already have which have barely seen the light of day or dark Gordon
