S&B question for Pete Lincoln

Pete

This question is slightly out of context in terms of being related to long range hunting optics but i have always wondered what the difference is between the German and Hungarian made Schmidt and Benders.

I have both and clarity of optics seems the same. Is there any difference in componentry/materials at all? Are they of comparable quality in general?

Many thanks in anticipation of a reply.

Jon - OK I'm poaching - but afaik (from S&B blurb) the difference is cheaper manpower. All S&B stuf makes it plain its teh same optics - But I'm sure Pete knows more.

Re: S&B question for Pete Lincoln

Hi Jon. The difference is the range of models to choose from. The Hungarian models have the same optical excellence as found i the classic line.
It was the case that when S&B went from steel to alloy tubes, steel 1" scopes where still produced in Hungary, gradualy the Hungary plant has moved over to alloy and is producing a limited range of scopes, ( 6x42, 8x56 illum and nonillum ret) on 1" and 30mm alloy tubes. now S&B are developing the Zenith line more and more, maybe we will see the classic line of variables move to Hungarian production.
Anyone in the market for a fixed scope ( 6 or 8) from S&B should look close at the Hungarian models,they are very good.
Yes the hungarian scopes are made by slightly cheaper labour, but the quality of components are the same.
Pete
