Thread: Doctor Scopes

  1. #1

    Doctor Scopes

    Thinking of buying a Docter LP Reticle 2.5-10x48 illuminated for my 243 sako 85, priced at £745

    Has anyone got any thoughts on the scope

    Thanks

    They are very good now, they used to be ok but have been improved a lot over the years. Another scope to consider is the Karl Kaps range, again very very good.

    I've got a Docter on my 17HMR - very good optics; not quite on a par as the Swarovski that I have on my 243, BUT it did cost significantly less for a like-for-like specification.

    I guess some of it depends upon how deep your pockets are - had I had the extra hunderds required, I'd probably have got another Swaro - but equally I have not regretted buying a Docter.

    It certainly ain't no cheap n cheerful 2nd rate 'made in Chinese sweatshop' tube!!

    Gets a thumbs up from me!

    I am sure the Doctor is fine. But, for another £50 you can buy a Swaro 2.5-10x42 with ill Ret. It will be at least as good, if not a bit better than the Doctor. The difference is, the day you decide to sell, you can put the Swaro on Ebay and recoup most, if not all of what you spent.

    Buy the Swaro.....

    I've got the same and second the low light capabilities, I believe they were testested alongside all the big names and came out top in this department. I find the illumination adjustment a minor pain but apart from that great. Back up good too.
