Re: best twilight scope?

IOR Valdada, they have a new one out....a 6-24x50 35mm TUBE, best glass in the world, best lens coatings in the world, unreal light gathering capability. Illuminated reticle and completly element proof, or maybe a 2.5-10x56 IOR. Usually IOR will beat Leupold on a regular basis, but everyone's eyes are a different.

Re: best twilight scope?

I think that the Nikon Monarch series are one of the better scopes out there. For the money, you get excellent clarity and brightness. I highly recommend both the Monarch and Golds. Something to look into.

Re: best twilight scope?

I would seriously consider the IOR line of scopes, especially for light gathering capabilities.

While on a hog hunt last year, my son had his .243 with a fixed IOR tactical 10X 42mm scope and I was using my leuy Vari-X III tactical 6.5 X 20 - 50mm on my tactical rifle.

At dusk I was comparing the scopes for light gathering capabilities. The Leuy when set on 10 power and even on it's lowest 6.5 setting with it's big 50mm objective died 2 minutes earlier than the IOR with it's 42 mm objective.

That was just the light gathering capabilities. The optics are another story. The Leuy's aren't even in the same class as the IOR's.

Save your money and look at the IOR scopes, you won't be sorry.

best twilight scope?

I started hunting varmints at night last year and fell in love with it. I have leupold vari x 3 4.5x14x50 but I'm searching for a scope that will perform better under lowlight conditions. I'm looking at several brands including the new vx 3's from leupold and the vmv's from zeiss.
Thanks for your help in advance!

Re: best twilight scope?

Have you looked at the Monarchs or the Monarch Golds?

IMO they bring light in alot better than any of the Leupolds.
