Re: Zeiss Conquest

Thanks for the email Joe. I kinda had my my mind set on the 4-14 but they don't seem to have a sale on it. I just may have to pick up the 3.5-10, that's a real bargain!

Re: Zeiss Conquest

Thanks for the info Joe. Their site shows that scope for 499, are they willing to bargain? I think I'll go with the zeiss.

Re: Zeiss Conquest

I bought the 3.5-10 from J&G since it was on sale. I researched the above mentioned zeiss, along with the 4.5-14 model. I also compared them to the Leupold LR M1 3.5-10. The think that sold me on the 3.5-10 was the fact that it has a whopping 66" of elevation adjustment. This is one inch more than the Leupold Long Range M1! The 4.5-14 Zeiss only had 43". As mentioned above the zeiss can be retrofitted with a target knob. Thanks for the advice guys, and for those of you looking for a scope I'd take a close look at the zeiss conquest series. Also zeiss has a sight set up just for the conquest. www.zeissconquest.com

Re: Zeiss Conquest

MOA,

Just a quick question: Who makes the Conquest for Zeiss? Or does Zeiss have a manufacturing plant here in US? Could it be possible that Leupold assembles the Conquest using Zeiss supplied materials? I recall Leica and Steiner having similar marriages with Leupold that ended up sour.

Thanks

Verrocchio

Re: Zeiss Conquest

The scopes aren't made by leupold. I don't know the details of the manufacturing process, but I do know that they [leupold] have nothing to do with it. Chris at SWFA can elaborate on who the manufacter is if you need to know. What I do know is.... I got my Zeiss today and it is MUCH brighter than any of my leupolds (including my LR 30mm's). I'm going Zeiss from now on. Also, Chris (the SWFA guy) will tell you same thing I did with regards to the conquest vs. the VX-III, the clarity is unreal.
