I'm looking to buy a new scope for a brand new Sako TRG-22 (308 Win).

I pretty much know what I want as far as basics are concerned - 30mm or 34mm tube, 3-12 magnification range, illuminated MilDot in first image plane, Zeiss/Hensoldt or Schmidt & Bender.

What I don't know is details about Zeiss/Hensoldt.

Got plenty of information on Schmidt & Bender 3-12x50mm PMII Military (copy of USMC contract version).

Got very little info on Hensoldt.

First of all, is it even sold in US to mere mortals?

Second question is, how does windage/elevation adjustment work on it? S&B has this feature where top would "pop" when you get into second rotation. How does it work on Hensoldt?

Any idea whether Zeiss 3-12x56 Victory Diavari 30mm Sniper Scope listed on SWFA's website is actually what used to be known as Hensoldt?

Best way to mount it? Should I use Zeiss rail system or should I use some high quality rings and mount it on either Picatinny rail or just use straight Sako TRG Tactical Mount?

Any pointers will be greatly appreciated!
