I have a 4-16 ...but haven't mount it yet, but the glass is quite clear.

I have a 8-32 discovery coming hopefully in a month or so , will report back.

I have a couple. Good for the money. My first one, a FFP one has developed a fault where at high magnification the poi changes, which is annoying, considering thats why I got an FFP one.
But otherwise really happy with them.

I've just noticed that a few air gunners over seas use them and apparently they are similar to Hawke but I have never used them. Scopeuout.co.nz has a couple of the basic versions and every now and then one will pop up on trade me

They are available from Airgunsnz.co.nz, but I believe pricier than Aliexpress. (quicker shipping though.)

They use them a lot in UK, but UK is sub 12FPE so a lot less harsh on the scope.
I asked Discovery and they do not test on magnus air rifles. It would be buyers risk to use them..They may be fine, but if they arent then you are out of pocket.

I had one, great features for the money, good build quality. Mine was slightly soft focus at 25 yards which is the length of the indoor range I shoot at. Better crispness at slightly longer range but that didnt help me at 25 yards.

I would stick to hawke if you can
