I am going to buy the S&B scope but saw that they came out with the new Zenith. What is the difference? The Zenith is about $100 more, is shorter and more round. How will it differ from the Klassik? It is going on top of a Kimber Montana in .308.

The Zenith is shorter only in the 2.5-10X56 version.  The 1.5-6X42 and 3-12X50 Zeniths are the same length as the same configuration Klassic Variable models.  The optics and mechanics are the exact same in both the Zenith and Klassic.  The only real difference between the two are the exterior aesthetics.  S&B decided to radius the objective bell and tube next to the power ring of the Zenith to give it a more distinctive look so that people would be able to immediately recognize it from competing scopes.  I do not own a S&B scope, but have been considering the 1.5-6X42 Zenith Flashdot and these are the answers I got directly from S&B when I called the Meriden, NH service center and asked this among other questions.  The person I talked to (I believe his name was Mark) assured me that there are no optical or mechanical differences between the two lines whatsoever.
