HI Team
Looking for a scope, my other airgun scope is rated for a springer, which i know isnt necessary for a pcp rifle. Now im in the market for a scope with side mounted knob for parralax adjustment (right word? might not be)
Anyways, any suggestions for models? would want to keep it under 300 bucks. I think 3-9 mag would be great, but not against a 4-X or 2-7.

Thanks in advance

I believe a Condor is a high power PCP which for shooting target beyond 50 meters and to more far away to 100+ meters?? Don't you need a higher power scope?

And you are looking for a 'side focus' scope.

IMO, if your current Springer rate scope is not mounted, why not use it? [emoji14] just ichy for a new scope, right?

Did you check https://airgunarcheryfun.ca/discovery-scopes/ for the Discovery scopes line up?

The Discovery scope line has gotten a lot of great reviews from members here, as well as internationally. Check them out at https://airgunarcheryfun.ca/discovery-scopes/. I'll bet you there are at least a half dozen options in your price range. If you're not sure, PM wesb2007 on this forum. He's the owner of the website and a well-respected member on this site.

Yep Yep raises a good point, by the way. I love my condor .25 for longer-range shooting (which I, unfortunately, don't get to do that often). Otherwise I'd have a 4x16 Discovery scope on it. Chat with Wes; he'll help you out.

I'm running a 6-24x50 Optisan Viper on my Condor .25.
It's a little overscoped, but I still like it. Adds some needed weight.
Oops, sry, I missed the $300.00 limit when I first saw this thread and posted my condor's pictures.
This scope is considerably higher than your limit.

However, this one, is an excellent scope for any air rifle.
Etched glass reticle and comes with rings for picatinny rail.
You would need only an adapter.
This one meets your $ amount and is an excellent scope. I have 2 of these on my HW 97's.
