An LPVO/Short dot style optic with a fine crosshair, which can be illuminated in red for extra visibility. The Vector Optics Forester series of riflescopes are well known for their high-quality construction and impressive functionality. The 1-5x24 Forester scope is the perfect scope for medium to long-range engagements and would look right at home on a DMR, Sniper rifle or DMR styled AEG rifle. 

Full description


The Forester 1-5x24 scope from Vector optics is one of the finest pieces of glass that can be had for the price. Ideally suited for Airsoft DMR rifles and sniper rifles, but equally at home on an Air rifle or Crossbow, the 1-5x magnification grants the ideal level of flexibility for medium to long-range engagements, as well as target identification. The scope includes everything you'll need to mount it to any Airsoft rifle with a 20mm Picatinny scope rail. 

The scope is constructed from high quality aluminium with an anodized finish, with all the adjustment markings crisply engraved, simplifying this scope's plethora of advanced features. Both the objective and eye lens are Fully Multi-coated (FMC) which reduces reflective loss and improves light transmission, allowing this scope to provide excellent optical clarity. The scope's monotube is 30mm in diameter, allowing it to be mounted with any 30mm scope rings, including SPR style mounts, though Vector has provided a set of 0.8" low profile mount rings in the box so you can get shooting straight away! The included scope rings mount to any 20mm Picatinny rail and are secured with thumbscrews which can be tightened by hand or with tools for extra security. One of the most impressive features of this scope is its very long eye relief (the distance your eye needs to be from the lens in order to get a clear sight picture. Being a whopping 4", you will never find yourself leaning further and further into the sight trying to get a clear picture, the reticle simply pops up as you raise your rifle, clear as day!

The scope's adjustment controls can be found mid way down the monotube, providing adjustment for elevation, windage, and illumination. The elevation turret is on the top, and the windage turret is on the right side of the optic. These turrets can be adjusted without tools, allowing easy adjustment on the fly, but can be locked down once the adjustment is complete to ensure the sight's zero will not be accidentally interfered with. To adjust the optic, simply pull upwards on the turret you are adjusting, after which the turret can be rotated to the desired adjustment and pushed back down, locking it into place. The illumination adjustment can be found on the left side of the optic, and provides 11 different brightness settings for the centre dot of the optic. The illumination level can be adjusted by turning the turret, allowing the optic to be used in different lighting conditions effectively. The battery compartment can be found within the illumination adjustment turret, and houses a single CR2032 button cell (not included). To access the battery compartment, simply unscrew the threaded cap. 

At the base of the "eye bell" of the scope, we can find the magnification adjustment ring, which features an extension for fast adjustment. The magnification adjustment ring rotates around the circumference of the scope and provides variable power settings between 1 and 5x. The 1x setting is not true 1x magnification, and is closer to 1.25x but can easily be used in the same way an RDS would in an emergency situation, with the illumination function turned on and both eyes open to provide a close range sighting solution. The magnification adjustment ring also features linear groves, adding to the ease of adjustment already provided by the extension. Surrounding the eye lens, at the rear of the scope we can find the focus adjustment dial, which can be used to clarify the image at different ranges. Similarly to the magnification adjustment dial, this dial rotates around the circumference of the scope and is helpfully marked with a +/- to indicate direction of adjustment. When not in use, the included polymer lens caps can be installed to protect the glass from damage during storage or transport.

If you are looking for a short dot style scope, or you are an RDS user who wants to reach out a bit further and harass the enemy at longer ranges, you can't do much better than the Vector Optics Forester 1-5x24. Complete with everything you need to install it onto a 20mm Picatinny rail, the Forester belongs on any Sniper rifle, DMR or long AEG!
