Re: Finally ready for a good scope
European optics manufacturers have the best, when it comes to reliability,clarity and optical excellence.
S&B, Zeis/Hensold,Swarovski, are the leaders
Kahles areas good.
Gerhard, Nightforce come a close second.
Leupold, Doctor Optik,Nikon, IOR, the Bushnell elite come quite a ways back in 3rd place.
I haven't treid US Optics, but i have heared good and bad reports.
If i was going for a Leupold i would have one from Premier Reticles.
The Zeiss Conquest is a bargain and have much to offer, shame about the 1" tube, as are the hungarian S&B's available in the UK.
