Great forum!!  Visited SWFA to find a new scope, but actually learned a lot about optics reading this forum.  I'm looking to buy a good scope with the intention of keeping it on the same rifle for a long time.  Excellent optics & durability are main concerns.  I've looked on the sample list & reg. site and have narrowed it down to two models: Kahales 3-9x42 & Zeiss 3-9x40.  Price difference is about $120 more for the Kahales (sample list price).  Will be mounting on a Sig SHR 970 in .270 & .300 winmag.(same rifle, different barrels).  Is the price increase in the Kahles worth the difference?  I've gone to my local stores and looked through both a Zeiss & Kahles, but not in the models that I want (Kahles 3.5-10x50 & Zeiss 4.5-14x44).  Both seemed to be excellent scopes, but not sure about the models that I'm interested in.  Any opinions or advise would be appreciated. 

Also, does anyone know of any problems mounting these scopes on a Sig?

I chose the Zeiss and have been extremely pleased.  Both are excellent scopes but I think the Conquest is a "best buy".  I do not believe that there is a $120.00 difference in the two.

Will probably get the Ziess.  Just one more question, I saw a Ziess 3.5-10x44 MC for a reasonable price.  Is there a difference between the MC and the one listed on SWFA?  The MC I saw at the store was 499.99.  Is this a good price?

Thanks!

MC is just the coatings used on the Conquest not a different model.  There is only one Conquest.
