Good lamp for rabbiting?

Postby Les » Thu Feb 27, 2014 9:42 pm

Evening all. Having no luck finding rabbits during daylight so I need to try dusk/dawn or even night time so...was wondering if anyone could recommend a suitable lamp with enough light/range for a .22. I'd be alone so presumably it'd need to be scope mountable. I did a search on here but saw nothing recent & don't want selling something by a dealer who just wants a sale. Scope is a Leupold 50x8-12.

Hi Les,

I've just got one of these and it seems it puts out plenty of light for a rimfire, over 100 yards.

I also got the rechargeable battery kit:

And to scope mount it:

ABS scope tube mount.

On a .22, something like this:

More than enough light output to spot bunnies at 150+ yards, it adds next to no weight and a single set of batteries will last a few nights.
I actually made a mistake in the video, it outputs 830 lumens, not 630.

Thanks for the replies. Ended up with a Ledray 300 which (they say) has a range of 250 mtrs, inc rechargeables, coloured lenses, charger for around £110. Time will tell.

This one has an amazing beam for the price but its a very narrow beam it's good for not illuminating a larger area and scaring off quarry YouTube vid below.

Hi
There is a great selection on www.shootingtorches.com
I recently got a UF-t20 full set with Panasonic rechargeable battery and a spare red led insert for £64 with mount and charger, and remote pressure switch ect. Not sure if it would be powerful enough for a 22 but with the xre led fitted it easily does 250-300m
With a nice narrow beam. And flood is handy for walking around. He has some good YouTube vids added so you can get a good idea before you buy anything and the guy was pretty helpful,when I wasn't sure what I needed he just advised me and said have a think and come back if you need anything not pushy or hard sell. Great guy.
Hope this helps you out.

I use an eBay red led t20 admittedly it uses those long stupid rechargeable batteries but is a great light

I also lamp from the vehicle with a dimable LF170 with a red filter

If using a filter put black insulation tape around the clips and side of the filter so that when its on it doesn't light anything up behind it if this makes sense

Another vote for T20. Though these smaller ones are perfect to mount on top of the scope and you can use 3 x AAA batteries in them so no need for 18650 batt's.
