I'm considering two different Swaro 3-9 x 36's, a "new old stock" Habicht AV Plex, and a brand new Z3, available in 4A or Plex The Habicht nets out about $40 bucks cheaper than the Z3, but I'm not concerned about price; I want best value.  I'd really like to hear what you guys think.  Is the Habicht a better piece of glass than the Z3?  Thanks.

They are about equal... I'd take the Z3 with the 4A as I'm partial to that reticle.

Thanks, bugs. ... I should add that scope will go on Sako 85 Finnlight .308 for deer & hogs at ranges averaging 100 yds. One thing about the Habicht that I like is that it's about .25" shorter and a tad lighter -- but if Z3 is a clearer scope, then those small differences won't matter.

Pretty much six of one, half-dozen of the other. Good luck. BTW, I once had a Finnlight in 7mm-08. I had a Trijicon 3-9 x 40 with the green triangle mounted on it. Liked it a bunch... twas a winner. Now, my only Sako is a 75 in 30-06. It's a shooter.

I have a few of the older AV scopes, love them! Glass is clear and bright, image is great, and they are light weight.

I don't have a Z3, but you will like whichever you choose.
