Hi there.

I have been looking at the Minox ZA 5 3-15x42 to use on a 30-06 all purpose rifle. I know the topic was discussed earlier on the forum but seems like there was a lot of mixed emotions, especially the lack of parallax adjustment. There was never clear info that the scope do have parallax issues at longer distances. Is there any new info on this? Is there a reason not to purchase this scope?

Cheers.

Pieter

I mounted one one a browning a bolt stalker 270. Hated it and removed it. Your head has to be in near perfect position behind this scope. Second thing is I tightened the warne rings exactly to the spec on the yellow paper in the scope box, but the scope still got marked pretty good. Pretty upset.

What were the specs on the yellow paper in the scope box?

16 inch pounds. Used a wheeler wrench. The yellow paper says no warranty coverage if you exceed this. Well what if you don't and it still happens? Oh well.
