I searched the site before dropping this in to try and avoid repetition if this had already been covered; apologies if I've missed it, but all I could find was passing references to them during 'Zeiss vs S&B' discussions....
I'm considering a new scope (variable, 30mm tube, illuminated reticule) and having looked at the S&B / Zeiss / Swarovski options - and nearly passed out at the prices - I wanted to see if anyone had any experience of a wild-card option, ie the Docter range of scopes? They are certainly not a 'cheap' scope, but are, ermm, "less expensive" than the others listed, and are still - I believe - German-made. I don't want to buy cheap and buy twice, but the differential IS something that is counted in hundreds of pounds.
I'm thinking of the 2.5-10x48 or 3-12x56.
Any feedback/opinions gratefully received!
