Re: Conquest vs PST!!

Another one to check out is Cameraland for the Conquest and the PST. They constantly run specials on demos and refurbs on the Conquest line. I bought two Conquests last year, one demo and one reburb. Both scopes look NIB, and function perfectly.

I just received a 6-24 FFP PST from them and look forward to giving it a thorough working with my new build.

    Ziess has better glass that will assist you in hunting conditions. Vortex has some bells & whistles that are nice for target. I don't like big heavy tactical scopes on walking rifles. I would also look into a Sightron BigSky or SIII. I believe the glass is every bit as good as Ziess when I compare them side by side and they have awesome CS.

    Camera Land is a great place for the Ziess & Vortex. I believe the also had a smoking deal on Leica scopes for $889...Thats a steal! it was listed on here.

    bigsupplyshop.com is a good place for sighttrons.

    All this should be taken with a grain of salt...buy what you feel is the best for YOU!

    I am not going out on a limb to say anything but I think the Viper PST scopes are fairly lightweight....

    For a tactical scope this is true, but for some they may still be dimensionally cumbersome like many tactical scopes. The Zeiss with all the knobs has a slimmer profile and a few less ounces. However, there is nothing slim about the SIII with knobs on a carry rifle.

    Not saying one is better than the other, just saying that if you prefer a slim profile for a carry gun, the Zeiss may be the best in that regard.

    The PST is only 4 oz heavier then the zeiss. So for all the bells and whistles I believe the pst is better even if the glass is better on the zeiss

    The Zeiss has everything I need to shoot long range and is very proven. As far as bells and whistles it has side focus and excellent turrets. Fantastic tracking. Excellent glass. Extremely reliable. Guess I can't see where it is lacking.As far as comparing a sightron to a zeiss well.. I 'd be going Zeiss every time.
