the 42mm connecter will fit the bushnell ar
pete is right you dont need the extra power range especially when using the pard


Hi Markman. I actually measured my Bushnell AR’s before I found this thread. I had no idea if they would be a suitable scope until I saw that you said they were pretty good! Thanks

But I measured the back of the scope to be 44mm the actual focus ring is probably 45mm. Did you order the 42 mm connector separately?

no worries
l would not be able to use the bolt with your scope and the 45mm adapter fitted, maybe with very high rings
in fact l had to turn the adapter/connector around to the left side on my brno model 2 so l could use the bolt
but it works :drinks:

Just got my pard back from a friend - fitted it to a vortex diamondback 4-12 tonight and it fitted perfectly. No tape necessary. BUT then I took it outside and...crap - I don’t recall the clarity being so poor...the optics were reflecting very badly. Then I remembered what manufacturer said about multi coated lenses.

So, pulled it and quickly fitted it to a bushnell banner 3-9 and yes, needed some packing, but wow - clarity was absolutely brilliant and I quickly spotted a few bunnies. I’m going to now set this bushnell up full time and sort myself a dedicated night vision .22 rifle with infra torch mounted under stock.
One question though - how are ppl using quick focus once the pard is fitted ?

l'm glad you have found another type of scope that suits the pard for us Tassie :drinks:

how l am using the quick focus for the 22 is by putting the rifle over bags on the bonnet with a target set at the distance l want, around 35-50 yards, that seems to be about right for me from around 20 to 75 yards with the bushnell ar, you will see the difference at either end, it actually makes ranging the shot easier
the first time l had the pard out l had it set for a longer distance and had a fuzzy image at closer ranges

l have followed this blokes advice

l will be in the future buying an external IR setup from ratpaker for use on my 22-250 or 22 dasher for longer distance shots
although l'm having a ball with the pard on the model 2 at the moment :thumbsup:

you can see in this photo its about at the limit because of the fuzzy grass ect around the rabbit

Actually MM - took out pard last night and the internal focus under the belly - although hard to operate when close to the stock - really cleans up the vision from about 40-75 as long as you say, you fold in scope close.
Frustratingly - I had 3 batteries with me last night, they all showed full charge on screen and all 3 died inside 2 minutes...pretty much ruined the hunt.
Have you or anyone else found a quality, flat positive replacement with crap loads of Millamps?

Where does the pard sit in regards to night shooting / spotlighting rules and laws ?

Maybe one day in areas where spotlighting is illegal laws may b introduced to stop night gear but until then I do my thing I mainly target pigs dogs foxes and cats so the govt is likely to encourage me to continue I think

I am pretty curious about the rules too after hearing a few too many stories of blokes using small centre fires on deer in state forests for comercial venison recovery.

Thought i read they are classified same as a spotlight in Vic. So same laws re deer and shires with deer habitat apply.

I’ve read Tas legislation and be buggered if I can find anything to do with them - maybe, one can assume that the law makers would have known about them - but purposely chose not to include, nor amend, therefore - go ahead until otherwise notified...Seems it’s a bit of a hole for now.
