Ok I have narrowed my two scopes down to two choices: The swarovski z6 2.5-25x56mm or Zeiss Victory HT 3-12x56mm. I am torn between these two scopes.

1. I really like the  mag range on the swaro, plus I like the parallex adjustment feature as well. The two negs. are the cost(talking bot going the IR model here) and I have heard that the swaro isnt as bright as the zeiss.

2. I like the IR on the zeiss, I like the price compared to the swaro, and I have heard it is very bright in low light.

I know I have probably worried yall enough concerning this subject, and I once again I want to say thanks for your help. I would like to here of the two scopes above which do you prefer. As of right now it will be a hunting scope, and shoots should stay under the 500yd mark, so I dont think a ao or side focus is that nessarcy. However I do like the idea of having it for possible future uses. Whats yalls thoughts?

You are choosing between a 2.5-15x56 Swaro and 3-12x56 Zeiss.

Both are spectacular scopes and in practical terms there is not enough difference between their performance to worry about.

Buy the one you can afford more easily.
Or buy the one you like the look of more.
Or flip a coin.

They both work well.
