  Ive been looking at the Minox scopes, just online though because not too many retailers have them. Question is, do you think there here to stay in the rifle scope world or not?  Been looking at the Leupolds vx-3 and I know there not going anywhere.

Nothing is guaranteed as far as what the future holds but Minox has made camera lenses for a long long time and the rifle scope end of their optics business seems well recieved possibly not as well known as some but better than others.  I think they will be around for years to come providing the economy does not collapse or a huge asteroid hit the earth.

My luck, I would buy one and the asteroid would be not far to followBig Smile.    Anyways been looking at them and have read a few good things about them so I may be interested in one.

 I think Minox makes very nice scopes and I expect the product line to stick around for quite some time.

Ive purchased 2 of the 3x15x50's and I sure do like them. I have Swaro, Zeiss,Kahles's along with several other top quality scopes. I find the Minox to be a equal Contender, great price too IMO.

I am looking at one pretty serious and they appear to be a real good price.

   You guys that have the 3-15 scopes, is there a parallax issue at higher powers with no adjustment on them?
