Soon I will be in the market for a best quality scope. I wish the Zeiss Victory Diavari had a 50 up front instead of a 56 mm obj. Which scope out there in 6x24x50 with a side wheel is comparable to the best Zeiss.

Thanks

The closest I'm aware of to Zeiss optical quality in that configuration would be perhaps the IOR 6-24X50 Tactical, though it has a 35mm main tube.  I have to offer the disclaimer that I haven't seen this scope personally, so I'm basing my comments on those who own it and the fact the optics in my 4-14X50 30mm Tactical are pretty darn good.
 
Otherwise, if the side focus isn't a stringent requirement, the Swarovski PV/PH 6-24X50 is a great scope, but it has A/O instead of SF.
 
I'm not aware of other 6-24X50 scopes with side focus that play in the same league as Zeiss.

The Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20X50 has a side focus. If you want to compromise.

I know it's not quite as high a power range as you wanted but it is 50 mm and should be superb glass. You should also consider a U S Optics scope.

Rifledude, I looked at that scope but does anyone make a dovetail ring for that 35mm tube that will twist into my Burris bases.

Here is another question, currently I have an Elite 4200 4x16x50 front focus on my .243 Savage. Being that the Zeiss has the side focus will that make the front of the Zeiss nearly the same size as the 4200?

If it close then it will be back to Zeiss.

Thanks

Charlie

No, but then scope bases are inexpensive.  Is there some reason why you can't change the bases?
