The first scope is unbranded , just the first I put my hands on really. The second is a Discovery 3-9x40 with half mildots. Just to add to that , don,t buy a Discovery , the quality just isn,t there. I had to return one as it didn,t have proper mildot spacing's. I had this one on my Tx200 for HFT use but the optics just were not good enough to pick out the longer targets , set in dark locations.
Back to the ratter. It hasn,t worked out much lighter after all - about 1 3/4 lb. And, I can fit or make a magazine system for it. Bugger.

Thanks for the heads-up Mel

Yeah, pretty sure that first (unbranded) scope is made by Leapers. Their fodder is rebadged/rebranded under many different monikers.......Crosman, JSB, AGS to name but a few.

I think you,re right Gambo, it probably is a Leapers. Actually it,s a good scope. But it is slightly heavier than the Discovery and the whole idea behind the project was to save weight. I took the ratter out yesterday to zero it in. It loves Crosman Acupels , cloverleafing at 26 yards. Good enough for me. I,m still toying with making another , lighter rifle though.
