Just chatted with "Rich in Michigan" who is involved with development of indexing mags for the Discovery...quite frankly,he said it does not look good right now...main issue is the size of the Discovery pellet tray...the Crosman QB78/79's have more room...they are not giving up,but trying to solve the "space" issue,and don't want to market a mag that will restrict choice of pellets to much...Fingers crossed....lol..

Thanks for the update you saved me a call to Mich. I guess I will have to keep checking Rich's website to see if things have changed in the future.

Thanks for the update Rich. That loading port sure is small it's hard to even get my Otis cleaning cable through it. I thought my old Sheridan had a small breech but this one is smaller. But the pellets are bigger too.Did you guys have a rear sight installed with your Disco's or is my dovetail part missing somewhere alone the line? Not that I planned on using it now but maybe someday I'll swap it back to open sights. :signlol2iu:

After spending the evening tinkering with the Nikon scope I put on the Discovery. Guess what the mailman just showed up at the front door with! One of my NEW scopes for the gun! :signgreatreport3kg: I'm happy it's here but it wasn't supposed to be here until Monday along with the other two. I would have waited on installing the first. :smiley_kewlpics:
