    This is my review of the Discovery Optics VT-T 6-24×50 SFVF
    I have purchased Discovery scopes starting back in 2015. I have always been impressed with the performance of Discovery scopes. I have purchased over 10 over the years and the VT-T line really caught my interest. This video is my review of the 6-24×50 FFP VT-T. I think you would be hard pressed to find another optic as good for the price.

    Enjoy!

    Great Video! I agree they are very clear scopes and a great deal for what you get for the price. I have the SFP but its my personal preference to have a fixed reticle since my old eyes can't see the reticle as good as they used to for lower magnification use but thats just me. Aztec and Athlon and MTC  seem to have similar glass for double to triple the price and sometimes more.

    Terrific review! I'm thinking of picking one up too. Do you own any other FFP Discovery scopes? What made you choose this particular one, and can they be used on a springer as well?

    The .22 FX Bobcat Mk1 I bought from @douger had the same scope but in 4.5-18x. Before I received the gun I had planned on changing out the scope. But one I used it I decided to leave it on. Side by side with a Hawke Sidewinder showed very similar quality. I’m super impressed!  

    Also great video @hajimoto. Super cool video editing. Totally professional looking!

    Thank you all for the kind words!

    @coldair – trust me these peeps are not getting any younger, I love a good fixed myself.
    @glockaxis – I asked if Discovery could answer the springer question and will report as soon as I hear anything.
    @carlosmendez – Ask Santa for one, his email is MASTERCARD 5432 231 234 1234 LOL
    @mobymyster – Which other models are you using?  The VT-2?
    @centercut – I too love my SW 8-32×56 but the Discovery is going to live on my impact ;)

    I have this scope on a D54 and so far it has been great. Has a very fine reticle with a very small dot but that was the reason I chose it. I don't hunt with it except critters and not in dim light. I now have about 500 pellets with it and so far so good. Oh yeah– when I shoot at 25 yds the parallax is hard to set because it isvery sensitive  to the amount of movement. Hope this helps.

    Great.review. I have this scope on my Compatto and love it. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a large side wheel that fits this scope.

    I like to keep a stash of those economical UTG large and medium wheels because with a little ingenuity they could be made to work on other brands of scopes.

    Hajimoto,

    I'm looking for a parallax wheel for my Discovery scope (VT-T 4.5-18 SFVF-N). I have queried the factory, no answer yet. My parallax knob is 35mm in diameter. Do you have a solution? Do you know the diameter of the parallax knobs of the VT-2, VT-3 ED and HI models?

    Thanks in advance,

    Steve

    Steve – I am not aware if there is one that will fit but I will look into it and share my findings.

    Hajimoto,

    I received an answer from Ken Cao of Discovery Optics. Yes, they have side wheels for these scopes. If you go to Aliexpress there is now a breakdown by model to order the correct wheel. The wheel for VT-T scopes cost $15.99 with free shipping.

    Great review…I wish I knew about Airgun Optics Plus sooner. I just ordered a HD 5-25X50 SFIR from China. Airgun Optics Plus doesn't stock it either, he only stocks some models and I guess drop ships the others from China in 2 or 3 weeks… BUT he does offer a 10% discount code for joining his mailing list, which would have saved me $27 off the price I paid directly to Discovery Optics.

    I asked if this would fit my 6-24×50 and this is the reply I got so I ordered one.

    You have a new message from AliExpress supplier Ken Cao.
    Ken Cao: Yes,it is fit for your scope/:000

    This is the link to Aliexpress. Don't know if it will fit yours or mine for that matter but will know about mine in a couple of weeks.

    I also ordered one, so we will both find out soon. The big change Discovery made on this add was the new model break down by scope model under "COLOR" choice. That was not there before I sent my query.
