I went to go and pick up a S&B 2.5-10x56mm today and there 2 of the same S&B in the case same size and price. BUT one said Klassik made in Germany and the other had a S&B logo with Germany underneath. What is the diiference in the 2? Are they both identical but one is just older?

Mine has Klassic made in Germany, Ihave not seen the second example mentioned.

I also have the Zenith 2.5-10 but this scope is shorter. I would give S&B a call on the

scope you described. It may be a newer model and sometimes this is a good thing.

I have a 4-16x50 Klassik PH. I think they are the ones made for sale in Germany, otherwise identical.

In England the Klassik is the newer model and also are made with lightmetal.
It should have LM in the serial number to denote this.(LM = lightmetal)

No LM on my serial# and it weighs just as much as my other 4-16x50 with the 8 dot
reticule.

What should be on there? No, had I the box & papers, I'd probably have my answers already.

The plot thickens. I was looking @ SWFA's pics of fixed power S&Bs.
On the eyepiece, some say Klassik, some have
the S&B oval logo. A 6x42 and 8x56 are pictured.

My fixed 8x56 is identical to the one on the bottom showing the Klassic logo all of my S&Bs were purchased last

year brand new from the UK and have the LM serial number on the box. Exellent scopes, I do not own one with the oval logo to compare. Thank you Murphy for the info LM description, I did not know what this meant. I guess the oval logo's are older models.

Good Afternoon

 

Some fixe power rifle scopes S&B are assembled in  Hungary and they are cheaper than the Germans.

However they have the same (high) quality.

Javali, I believe S&B owns the company whcih they get their glass from and it is located in Hungary. Is this correct Javali?

Hello Narrow Gap,

 

I am sorry but i d'ont know.

Last year i thought to buy an Hungarian scope (because the price). So  i ask S&B what was the diference between them.

They said to me that the only diference was the place were they are assembled. The quality is the same but the costs in Hungary are smaller then in Germany, so those scopes are cheaper.

 

Regards

You are right but yesterday i saw the pictures of the fixed scopes.

I never saw  the variable  but the fixed  on the pictures are similar of the Germans fixed scopes.

I do not know if exists the Hungarian variables.

 

Regards
