you've had to send three of four scopes back, that sucks!
how was the service and turn around time?
what did they say was wrong?

it's good to hear that they are fine now and that the recoil doesn't effect them

Conquest??

I have 2 different 6.5X20 scopes on two different varmint rifle's. One is a new Leupold and one is a new Zeiss. When I put both rifle's on the bench at the same time-I prefer the Zeiss. The scope definitely has more "clarity". By that I mean that I can see the target better at different ranges(over the Leupold). I can clearly see the X on an archery target at 500 yards with the Zeiss. With the Leupold the X appears as a dot. I can see shots on white paper at 400 and 500 yards with the Zeiss. Under some light conditions I can see the holes with the Leupold at 400 yards(not always), but I can not pick out the holes at 500 yards. The Zeiss also outperforms in low light conditions. The Zeiss has a one inch tube, and the Leupold has a 30mm tube. The Leupold will focus at 25 yards, the Zeiss is a bit blury at 25 yards.

So far the Zeiss tracks perfectly. from 400 to 600 yards the scope returns to zero, EVERY TIME. I have had a few tracking problem's with Leupold's in the past. But I have the VH reticle on this(which I really like) Leupold and tracking is not an issue. I would like to see the VH reticle on the Zeiss.

My next purchase is a NightForce 5.5X22--I do expect it to out perform the Zeiss and Leupold. It should outperform, it is a good bit more expensive. The Zeiss and Leupold are comparable in price. I may not purchase a Nightforce if I can get a different reticle in the Zeiss. Tom.

I am torn between the IOR and the Conquest I looked at the Conquest again tonight and I love the 14X for target shooting. I just don't want to mess around with sending it back as I have done this twice with the Sightron that is on there now. Thanks

I've had similar experiences. Never had to send a Conquest back, but then in 38 years of buying scopes never had to send any back!
