Thread: DOCTOR

  1. #1


    Thinking of buying an 8x56 scope and have been offered a good deal on a Doctor IR.
    I WAS looking at S&B, Swarovski, Zeiss ?
    Will the Doctor be okay or will I regret it later and wish I had gone all the way after the big names? Is there really that much difference in quality and are the big names worth those extra pennies - will I notice the difference?
    Advice appreciated, thanks.

    The doctor is a good scope. I have had several and they are good workhorses, the clarity of the glass is also very good. I find that the cross hair is a little thick, but some people like that. I had a uni-point and would not have another, I had to adjust the brightness all the time and I found the dot was a little diffused so it was not perfect by any means.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a Doctor 8x56 IR 30mm scope have had it for about 5 years never any problems.

    Have used it on .222 & my Rem .243 landed on top of it in the middle of a burn on some rocks. Fired of a few rounds at a target scope was still where i had zeroed it.

    Definetley worth the money.

    Is Doctor a part of Zeiss or do they just operate out of a factory that Zeiss once owned? JC

    I have a Docter scope on my .22lr. They're right up there with the S&Bs etc, very good optics and rock solid with it!

    Have a look round the net for reviews, most will be good. Search for Docter though, Doctor will bring up all sorts of weird answers!
