I am looking for a new riflescope for hunting out west.  I want 4x16x50 approximately.  I would like to get one without the tactical knobs.  I just want a plain scope and I am looking to spend about $800.  I have two Zeiss conquest scopes and a couple of Leupold's.  I was looking at Burris and a couple of others but most have tactical knobs.

 

Any suggestions?

Ivanab,

 

 I would recommend the Burris Black Diamond it has everything that you are looking for. Image brightness, clarity, resolution, finger-adjustable and resettable adjustment dials, generous 3 1/4" to 4" of eye relief.

Also available in a plex, ballistic mil-dot and ballistic mil-dot with posi lock. Includes flip backs and sunshade.

 Then you have the Pentax LightSeeker. This will work for you as well. These are serious rifle scopes, developed for serious shooters: groundhog hunters in the Piedmont, prairie dog hunters of the West, 1000 meter target shooters, or anyone who demands optimum optical and mechanical performance. Available with the Ballistic Plex or the Mil-dot reticles.

Here are a couple you might start off looking at...

 

http://www.riflescopes.com/search.asp?keywords=200954  -- Burris Black Diamond 4-16x50

 

http://www.riflescopes.com/search.asp?keywords=200955  -- Burris Black Diamond 4-16x50

 

http://www.riflescopes.com/search.asp?keywords=200958  -- Burris Black Diamond 4-16x50

 

http://www.riflescopes.com/search.asp?keywords=89541  --Pentax Light seeker 4-16x50

 

I wasn't sure on what finish or reticle you were looking at so I gave you a variety of scopes mainly in th Burris line since it was in your price range and your specs you were looking for.  If you need any other help let me know.

Mary

You can sneak into a Swarovski off the samplelist for right at $800.00. It's a 4-12x50 and in my mind will be all you ever need out of a hunting scope. Some of the best optics you will find no matter what the price

 

4527 - Swarovski 4-12x50 American Light Weight - Matte finish, one inch tube, plex reticle, fast focus eye piece, resettable windage & elevation, light ring marks.

 

Or get it new here.

That Swaro's a good buy, for sure.

 

The Burris looks good too.

 

What powers are your Conquest's and how do you like them??

I have a 3x9x40 and a 3.5x10x44 conquest.  I am planning on shooting 400-500 yards and would like something around 16x.  I don't like all the kadjustment knobs on the Burris scopes shown above.  The parallex adjustment knob is ok.  I did not know I could get a Swaroski for $800.  I like it because it does not have the tactical knobs.

 

Thanks everyone for the info.

The Swaro would make an excellent choice for you.

The only thing about that particular scope is that it has a wire reticle, versus a laser etched like your Conquest's. No big deal really.

 

This is purely subjective and biased, but for a hunting scope, I say no tactical knobs and no adjustable objective.

That's me.

 

Good luck!!

Question, the side adjustable objective shown in the Burris and all others. Doesn't the side mount adjustment for this require a reset forward to infinity if you want to go from 100 to 200 etc... My thoughts on these applications in a hunting situation is obvious. To many variables to tinker with and forget about.

 

I would go with a standard variable or at most a front mounted adjustable objective.

 

Simplicity is best when hunting...
