The Z5 is definately an awesome scope but at $1500 is a bit over my self imposed $1k max budget for optics, having just bought a Nightforce Atacr for my long range heavy
did not see the Zeiss Conquest 3.5-10x44 on SWFA, is it a discontinued model ?
I have had bad luck with Leupold glass and customer service in the late 90's and have never purchased another since and probably never will,
Here is one that caught my attention even though it is bulkier than originally wanted (30mm tube and 50mm objective) but the weight and price are right in line
Meopta MeoStar R1 3-10x50 13 oz. and 21" long
Meopta 3-10x50 MeoStar R1 30mm Rifle Scope
anybody have any experience with Meopta ? don't they make the Conquest scopes for Zeiss in New York ?
