I have actually had and used both. I found they were both very good. best thing if you can is to look at both yourself and see which you like better. the team primos is actually a monarch ucc If I remember correctly.

The "new" Monarchs have a 4x erector and 4" fixed eye relief. The glass, I believe on both, to be the same, my friend. 

I had a 4-16x new Monarch. Good scope. The ocular housing is a little on the large size, thus it may interfere with your bolt throw, on certain rifles. A CZ, for example, could be a problem.

I have a Monarch Gold 2.5 - 10 X 50 30 MM with Talley mounts on a CZ and it works great.
