I might be interested in the 4x32 Zeiss Conquest scope. Does anyone here have one? If so, whats it like? I would love the S&B 4x, but my budget says no.

There's a few members here who have the scope, hang tight until they chime in.

I have two, and love 'em!  My eyes think this scope is the best glass for the money out there anywhere.  I love the reticle, and with 4x, I'm able to get on game from 10 feet to 300 yards.  I have "rediscovered" simplicity in my shooting, & 4x seems to work best for me.  I did some unintentional durability testing with another Zeiss scope, & found it to hold up far beyond my expectations, so I was quite confident in buying the 4x32's.  I wouldn't call it an ideal range scope, though it just so happens that I've shot my best groups with these scopes, rather than my 3-9's.

Mine are mounted on long action Remington 700's, & I like the extra tube length for mounting purposes.  They may seem big compared to a Leupold FXII or a Sightron SII, but I think they look right at home on my rifles, & I've not found their extra couple o' ounces to be burdensome, whatsoever.  These scopes are still far trimmer than the vast majority of 3-9 variables out there.  The ocular is probably bigger than it needs to be, & may present a problem with some kinds of mounts.

If I were never to hunt varmints & vermin, all of my centerfire rifles would be wearing a 4x32 Conquest.

I have one with the Z-Plex.  As FC said, it's a great scope!  It has the nicest plex reticle I've seen.  Optically, it's superb!  I have no complaints about it whatsoever.  I have no doubt you'd love it!

I had one (but sold it last year because I'm a retard). It was a very sweet scope.

I would like to put one on my 35 whelen, I also like the simplicity of fixed power scope.

I just mounted one on my .458 Lott.  Have not hunted with it yet, but the zeroing exercise was great.  I really like it.

Now you have me thinking about a Zeiss Conquest 4x32 or S&B 4x36.  It might just be the right scope for me.
I have not used a 4x since I was a kid. Back then it was the standard unless we were hunting in the mountains where longer shots were needed.

That's how I started, & it took me a long time to get back to it.  Dad put a 4x Tasco on the .243 he got for me for Christmas when I was 12.  When I started buying my own rifles, I went with the mainstream 3-9's.  After a while, I noticed that EVERY big game animal I shot was with the scope set on 3x.

I was a bit hesitant to try the Conquest, but I was thrilled with their 3-9x40, and the price on the 4x looked too good.  As soon as I looked through that scope, I knew I was "home".

I'll admit, sighting-in with a 4x takes some getting used to, if you've been using 9x at the range for a while.  And unfortunately, 4x won't get rid of flyers:

Sounds like people are happy with them. Since I do a lot of night time culling (legal here) I was after something a bit brighter than the old Pecar 4x on the rifle.  It would be good to compare one to a S&B 4x though, just to know.

I had a 4X scope on a 270 for years and on a 30-06 for years and my ex-wife had one on her 257 Roberts for years......I'm gonna buy some more, too!!!

Just FYI... I didn't really hunt today, but did go scouting (found lots of scrapes and rubs in areas I haven't been in in a couple of years... looks like rut may be kicking in a little early this year).  I started back home after dark.  For this rifle, I would prefer iron sights, but the reason I scoped the Lott is because of inability to see the front sight in lowlight conditions.  The 4x Conquest would have allowed me to take a shot at anything that "jumped".  
I expect to hunt tomorrow, so maybe I will have a harvest report.  I have no concerns whatsover about taking a shot during any legal hunting time.  I can see with the scope into heavy brush in low light much better than I can see with my "naked eye".
