The result should be a more capable scope than the Swarovski ATX-95, which, at the moment, is the only competing scope that slightly outperforms the 883/4 in most ways except for CA correction.
Here you go Henry,...
The new prototype Kowa TSN 100mm scope, under going field testing in Japan late last year.
They have to put it on wheels, as its extremely heavy.
But at least you will be able to tow it where ever you want.
It can also be adapted as a 100mm artillery gun apparently,
But you'll need to apply for a firearms certificate
