I finally got my R5M setup with the Discovery scope. I love it.

This one in the picture is a .25 standard with the Discovery Optics VT-T 4.5-18X44 SFVF that Brian sells. I'm only able to shoot out to 25 yards right now, but I can put them through the same hole. I'm new to the Edguns, but Brian has been a real help with all of my questions. The biggest plus for me, when when I first picked it up, is it's very solid. I probably could use it as a club if I ran out of rounds while hunting, and it's still be functional and zeroed.

I’m new to the EDguns too, but I am hooked.  Solid build is an understatement for these guns!   Brian is one of the best guys to deal with, a real pleasure.  I have been hearing good things about the Discovery scopes recently, looks like good “affordable” glass.

I like the way that top edge of the stock curves downward on each end--major quality control. And that side lever has gotta be cool. Have you tried the QR code on the breech yet? Just guessing it gives out info on any product updates, maybe?

The QR code allows you to download the manual

Beautiful combo!! I have a few Discovery scopes myself and I really really like them!! For $290 I'd try that FFP any day. I either have Fixed Magnification SWFAs or Variable Magnification Discoverys I won't go back to a UTG ever again

The QR code is a work in progress I think. It takes me to the EDgun site, but there is nothing up from what I can see.

Anyone have any suggestions on sling. I might just toss on some 550 cord and just double string it.

I use a one point Magpul with a clip-on sling mount on the pic rail for my Mutant. Some guys don't like that method, but pull I pull-test it before going into the field and don't have issues.

The R5M already comes with a sling attachment on the frame, no need to attach something to the rail.  I like this one for the Eddie

 I have not had the opportunity to translate the R5M manual.  The Lelya is pretty much the same gun regarding operation and use.  I have the Lelya manual on the product webpage here:

Nice. That manual works for me. I just noticed from one of the pictures it shows under the pic rail there are built in mag holders.  :D
