I've been considering purchasing an Accupoint for some time. Can anyone tell me where they feel the quality of the glass lies in comparison to other  brands. I presently own several Swarovski AV's & PH's, Zeiss Conquest's, Nikon Monarch's. Leupold VXIII, Burris Signature & FFII. Any feedback would be appreciated!
 
Thanks in Advance....BB

I have 2 Accupoints, and I think optics quality is right up there with Zeiss Conquest, with the Conquest maybe just barely edging out the Accupoint.  They are basically on par with Bushnell Elite 4200 & 6500 series.

agreed but will add they have the best ill reticle system
no switches or batteries to fail and every bit as important, they reticle is lit just enough to be seen when hunting in very low to no light without being too bright like a lot of them...
great scope

Thanks guys! I appreciate the feedback Have either of you had a chance to determine ruggedness? Does it hold it's zero under most conditions?

Bad Bob,

Not to high- jack your thread or anything, but this looks like a good opportunity for you to provide the forum with some great info... perhaps another thread.
How would you rate/compare those scopes you own?

My request is a bit selfish- I've looked through/done side- by- sides with most of the scopes you mentioned- except for the Signature Select.
How does it compare with your Conquests?

TIA

TIA,
 
I'm very pleased with all the scopes I have when used for their inteded purpose. When it comes to the glass, refering to brightness, clarity, resolution, etc. the Swarovski's come in first followed by the Zeiss with the Burris signature & Monarch very close. IMO the Leupold' III's are only a air better than the Burris FF II. When it comes to ruggedness, dependability and holding zero, The Swar PH followed by the Signature. I feel the reason for the Signature rating so high is due to the posi lock feature. The rest of the pack all do a good job of holding zero, but I have had issues from time to time., Even with the Swar. I have three AV's in 12x50. I have experienced a problem with long travels. On two occasions to Canada and one to Africa. The point of impact shifted by the time I arrived and checked the  zero. Swar took care of it ASAP, took less than 3 weeks. Installed stronger clip/leaf type spring from what I understood.
 
One thing I forgot to mention was two older scopes that really deserve a honorable mention were the Weaver Grand Slam & Bauch & Lomb 3200. The glass was very good and both have fallen off the truck, off the shooting bench, knocked over, etc and they both were always dead on when I checked them. Extremely rugged.
 
Keep in mind these are just my personel experiences with these scopes, I'm sure there are a lot of other opinions.
