Re: Burris Xtreme vs Zeiss Conquest

Every case for warranty work I've had has been my fault. Leupold has not blinked and eye. They repaired them without question. I guess it may seem strange to some that I like that, but I sure the heck do. Come to think of it that's why I buy Snap-on tools. I also know that I pay for that kind of warranty at the purchase. You better believe I will use it! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Burris Xtreme vs Zeiss Conquest

I understand what your saying. They fixed the scopes but informed the customers that abuse wouldn't be covered the next time and I guess it ticked the people off. I'm glad leupold has a great warranty and thats the reason many people buy them. It's not strange to like having something fixed for free even when it's your fault. I would probably have been pissed also if they told me that if I abused my scope again they wouldn't fix it for free when I thought I did nothing wrong but I also see why the told them that. If they give away new scopes to any guy who beats on them and twists rings in with them then soon they will be out of business. I hope I never have to use the warranty on any of my optics but if I do I want it honered to the fullest!

One of the Conquests had to be tinkered with after it was mounted. It came in the box way out of focus and the paralax was cranked out to the infinity setting. After refocusing the eyepeice and cranking down the paralax its been perfect for 2 years now.

I wasn't aware of the Burris issues. I love the Conquests and am pretty sure thats what I'll wind up with but you know how it is, the grass always looks greener......

Re: Burris Xtreme vs Zeiss Conquest

winmagman,

How are the target turrets on your Conquests? Have you used the turrets alot? I was checking out a Conquest at a local shop and the 6-24x50's turrets felt a little squishy (technical term) That is to say they didn't really Click when you clicked them. I am wondering if that would effect their reliability when dialing in to a different moa setting? I like the very audible Click when dialing in scopes. The Zeiss I looked at didn't do that. I just wanted to ge your take on that. Thanks

Both of my 6.5x20s have proven very repeatable I have no hesitation dialing up then back down, I've found no need to go past the desired moa mark and then come back down or vise versa even in cold weather.

As far as how solid the clicks feel I can't help you much there as I haven't played with alot of other scopes with target turrets. I do have a (don't laugh) Tasco world class plus and the clicks on that are much more solid, almost to much so, they are dificult to turn with cold fingers.

I can tell you that in the last 2 years of target shooting and hunting the Conquest turrets have never moved while in the feild unless I've turned them. That covers about 700 target rounds, 20 whitetails, 2 coyotes, and an opposum.

Re: Burris Xtreme vs Zeiss Conquest

I stand by Zeiss and Burris equally. I use a 4.5-14 Conquest on my HV70 in .223 and it is INCREDIBLY accurate. I use a Burris Fullfield2 4-14 on my ar15 bull barrel and it shoots 1/2moa. My PSS in 7mm mag has a Burris Signature 6-24 and I can shoot 1/2moa - 3/4moa depending on the load.

My 2nd Burris Signature had a problem, the ocular reticule focus ring's threads were stripped. I sent it off to Burris and in 2 days I received a polite and detailed courtesy phone call and in 4 days I received a brand new identical Signature scope, no questions asked. THAT my friends, is customer service!

Out of the 6 Burris scopes i've owned, this was the only scope I had a problem with.

My experience with Burris Optics customer service department, they're top notch!

Re: Burris Xtreme vs Zeiss Conquest

winmagman,
I won't laugh at your Tasco's. My uncle uses old Tasco World class scopes for all of his rifles (over 20). I'll admit they are at least as clear optically as most Leupold's I've had by side. Plus he's never had one break down..

Thanks for the info on your Conquest, I'm trying to decide whether I should sell my Swarovski with the TDS reticle for a Zeiss Conquest with Target knobs. Thanks
