Re: Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50AO Riflescope
thequickad, froggy, and fellow posters, I've taken the plunge too, via Highland Gear (in Quincy, IL) for a Zeiss Conquest.
They *will* sell outside of e-Bay (thank God!) and although their website shows the M.A.P. (minimum advertised price) as $800, indeed the price when you click on 'buy it' is $620.00 plus a few bucks shipping.
I've ordered the mildot version, which they sold me at the same price as above, vs. the Zeiss Z-plex reticle and apparently at least a couple of others.
Froggy/Sealdoggy, these scopes also feature a BDC? Bullet Drop Compensator... How does that work? Apparently you get the BDC with any of the reticles, but I won't know until the thing shows up. I wonder if the UPS people know how much we anticipate the grinding rumble of those brown trucks? [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
it's not about need in the USA -- it's about WANT
