Re: Minox ZA 5 3-15x42

I also just bought a ZA-5, Minox, 2-10x42 scope and it arrived today. Initial impression is good. Craftsmanship is good to excellent and I like the BDC reticle better than some other BDC reticles that I have used. I will mount the scope on the rifle this week and sight it in and by next week will have some range results.

It is my impression from what I have read is that the components and lens for the scope are fabricated in Europe, not China. However I will continue to investigate sources of ground lenses and other relevant parts to quality.

Re: Minox ZA 5 3-15x42

I have returned my 3 to 15 as it wouldnt track for s....t. I couldnt even zero my 1/2 MOA T3 7mm Rem mag with any reliabilty. Big erector problems I would say. It would just freeze and then release. Gentle Taps didnt help.. This one had lost its marbles and I dont have much confidence in that unit. This is one the boys at Minox need to test..and pull apart. It was set up in Talley light weight rings. Maybe I got a bad one or one of the first in May.

To CL NY credit I was requested to return it and provide details of purchase.Hopefully the new one will be fine..
