    I was considering both of these scopes, so I will be very interested to hear your feedback.

    On paper, the weight difference didn’t seem like much (16g with the mounts).  Does that seem true?

    Thanks 

    The weight difference seems pretty small, but the 24 is noticeably smaller in the hand. So smaller volume, similar mass. I'll be taking both to the range around the end of the month and I'll post some thoughts then. Just IMHO, if the specs fit your uses I think it would be pretty hard to go wrong with either at the price point.

    My only big quibble so far is the rear lens caps — they fit on pretty loosely and with how close to the terminal of the housing the lens is, it makes me a little nervous.

    Spent about 5 hours behind my 5×24 yesterday in a variety of light conditions, including shooting at early twilight. No issues at all. I was shooting 820 fps polymags out to about 50 yards, and doing a little plate ringing out to 75 or 100. Really glad I went this direction, very confident it will be a great small game scope out to about 35-50, which I can't shoot well beyond anyways :)

    I've been using the 15×50 unbelievably clear and huge field of view.  Just received the 10×40 if it's sufficient fo ground squirrels my change it up.   They came wihout batteries and haven't bothered to check the illuminated reticle yet.

    Did you ever do a head-to-head with the 5×24 vs the 5×30?  I am still curious to hear if I made the wrong call going with the 5×30….

    I'm getting my L2 back pretty soon here and I'll be taking it to the range to zero the 5×30 on. I'll post up some comparison when I do. I think it is mostly going to come down to preference though — the 5×24 definitely had better depth of field which is either good or bad depending on your view point (shallower depth of field maybe makes it easier to know when you're adjusted correctly.)

    The main thing I want to compare is how bright they are. I can say I shot the 5×24 a bunch at twilight last weekend — pure plinking/"pragmatic accuracy" and it was totally fine. We had fun cans hanging from coat hangers off of a tree at about 30 yards and I was trying to shoot high on the can until the coat hanger hook didn't have enough purchase and fell off, and was able to do that easily enough in 10-20 shots per can — .177 polymags at ~820 fps or so.

    That's obviously not scientific or anything, but I think is plenty for me to have "minute of squirrel" in crappy light conditions.

    Larcat:

    It is really nice that you happened to have purchased the exact two scopes I was considering and can offer direct feedback.  I am definitely looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

    Brightness was my biggest concern when I choose the 5×30 over the 5×24.  But, if you end up saying the 5×24 looks just as bright, I may end up having to pawn my 5×30….

    In the meantime, I took my 5×30 out the other morning and I am still really liking it.  I just bought a set of those 34mm Nightforce ultra-light rings off eBay last week in hopes of dropping a little weight.  They haven't arrived yet, but I will tell you guys if it actually works out.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    👍🏼Good news if want to buy an Immersive Optics prismatic scope: 

     

    Wes had his ear to the ground when we were discussing these cool scopes — half the size and weight of the traditional scopes….

    And after the sellers on the other side of the pond were so complicated to deal with for us 😟 — Wes came through and is offering them now to us 😊 

    He's a very trustworthy guy, on GTA he frequently interacts and answers questions.

     

    Here's the info:

    Happy scope shopping! 👍🏼

    PS: Make sure you change the currency on his webpage to US$ or whatever currency you keep your airgun fund in…. When I ordered his shipping from Canada was quick.
