Daisy Powerline Rifle Scope Rating
Review of the scope.
The Daisy Powerline® 3-9x32 scope is a fog proof and shock proof scope that has multiple magnifications from 3-9x. The scope comes with the 1 inch scope rings to mount on a 3/8 inch dove tail mount (if your weapon uses a weaver mount, you have to buy the appropriate weaver mount with 1 inch rings) and a lens protector.
The scope has a windage and elevation adjustment knobs which is covered by the caps. To make adjustments, simply unscrew the caps and use a knife, screwdriver or coin to turn the knob. To make it simple, there are arrows on the knobs pointing which way moves the point of impact of the round up, and on the windage knob, which way moves the point of impact to the right.
The adjustments for the scope is 1 click moves the point of impact 1/4 of an inch at 100 yds. It is a good idea to give the scope a good smack after making adjustments to set the spring holding the lens into place. Once it is mounted, it is easy to zero- especially on high powered pellet guns.
- Can be used on multiple guns from airsoft to low caliber firearms.
- Good price.
- Shockproof and fog proof.
- Multiple magnification levels.
- No bullet drop compensator reticule- if you are shooting at 100-200 yards it's no big deal or if you can 'Kentucky Windage.'
- The scope rings are substandard meaning after a couple of shots (depending on the amount of recoil, etc) you will have to tighten the screw often. It will not take excess recoil well and doesn't hold the scope well. I would suggest using after market mounts.
- When sighting in, you may notice your shots shooting low even though you move the point of impact of the scope all the way down. This is known as a barrel droop-many barrels in airguns and some firearms will not be 'perfectly' straight and will be pointed slightly downward. To fix this, fold some paper (start at about a centimeter thick) and take the scope out of the rings. Place the folded paper on the ring closest to the trigger and install the scope. Try to zero your scope again by taking at least 3 shots from a stable position. This should fix that issue.
- Do not turn the windage and elevation knobs extremely up, down, left or right. If you do, your scope will not hold its zero. If you find yourself doing this, double check you mounts and make sure you are not having the issue stated in #1.
