    After seeing the video(very well done) I gave Airgun optics a call, Charlie the owner was a great guy to speak to he answered all of my questions and I wound up ordering the discovery scope that was in the video. Not sure what rifle will be it’s final destination but I may start it out on my RAW that I ordered last May as I just found out that Ken will be shipping it out shortly.

    There have been reports that the Discovery Optics scopes are running out of MOA/MIL adjustment so a set of No-Limit rings or elevation shimming may be in order to keep the adjustment tube centered. Charlie Sexton is the whole reason I started telling people about Discovery Optics because I was not comfortable of recommending Chinese distributors that may or may not support after the sale. Like I said from the jump, I have been a huge Discovery fan for years.

    Hajimoto,

    I recently picked up a Discovery HI 6-24x50SFIR scope. seems like a well built scope. I like it so far. Do you know if the zero can be reset on this model?

    Thanks,

    Kevin

     

    Hello Kevin,

     I too have the HI 6-24 x 50 and can't remember if they can be zero'd or not but i will check and report my findings. I can not remember if I have the right model but if I am right, one of the things I really was not pleased with was the fact that the turrets give no indication of which direction is affected by turret rotation. HATE THAT!

    Hajimoto,

    Did you ever find any info on this?

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    Yes Kevin I was finally able open 12 cases to determine which one had the scope on it (I would have had to many more if it was not on the 12th case) and determined that once you loosen the thumb nurl on the turret the graduation tape is able to spin. So Yes you can re zero the scopes elevation and windage.

    Hajimoto,

    Thank you very much for the information. I will take a look and see if I can figure it out.

    I just inboxed mine which I got from Charlie. My first impression was good as I saw a nice clear and sharp field of view looking at the woods around my house. Looking forward to mounting it and using it as intended when my RAW HM1000 LRT arrives hopefully in the next week or so. Not sure if I’ll use the rings that came with it or my favorite FX no limits rings.

    i also was impressed with the functionality of the camera mount it’s not as convenient as my side shot but as a backup it will be fine. The price for everthing delivered was excellent just a little over $240 with the 10% discount code on airgunopticsplus web site. I just need some warmer weather as my indoor range is limited to 25 yards and the outdoor range has a foot of ice and snow on it.

    I have but one complaint!  It's a pet peeve for years now.  Why is the reticle Mil-Dot and the Turrets are MOA??????  Why can't they match?  If I want to use turrets to adjust for range, now I have to convert from MOA to Mil-Dot to ensure it's on zero.  Yech!

    Discovery VT-3 3-12X44 SF compact First Focal Plane 

     

    This is my first Discovery scope and I am very excited as it is shipped.  It is going on a Veteran .25 Long.  I stayed down to 12 power because my experience with higher powers was, with other scopes, a dimmer image, fuzzy edges, poor light gathering.  However, perhaps I was too cautious with the Discovery scopes???  Anyway, no harm no foul, as my shooting distance is 100 feet from my deck to where the critters like to gather.  Apparently this isn't one of the "economy" models as it cost more than the $69 another poster listed when he got his from Amazon.  I'm dealing with Ken Cao, and given the UPS Express shipping, it seems he's a cut above the normal China shopping experience!   

    I'll report more later after I get a chance to check this rascal out.

    Hey Hajimoto, thank you for that amazing review. I just ordered one and can't wait to receive it. Discovery scopes seem to offer great value and quality. I can't wait to compare it to my Hawks, utg and cheap scopes.

    Hope you like yours. I can't speculate on the Hawke in terms of glass, but in terms of build-quality, I would say that Discovery gets the nod. As far as UTG and many other cheaper scopes, Discovery blows them out of the water at their price-point. I've handled a few of them now in the last few weeks and at their price-point, these things are the real deal… Nothing junky about them at all. To be honest, probably the best product I have ever bought that came from China.
