POST REDACTED

 

I think it was around 2004 when Terry started his own shop, so I would imagine around then?

Send Terry a E mail and ask him.  I only knew to stay away from that Dob maker since no one got a reply from the guy when they ordered a scope. As for the Terry mirrors mine was Zambuto like on the 12.5" and did 700x fine.
