I'm having difficulty finding technical info on Schmidt&Bender, Zeiss and Swarovski.  Mainly, I'm looking for info on tube length for comparison purposes.  Also, I did find today on Schmidt&Bender's website that are going to make their scopes in both the first and second plane reticles. AMEN!

Cory, I've found the specs on the S&B 4-16x50 Professional Hunter.  I can't find the specs on the new Zeiss 6-24x50 or the Swarovski 4-16x50 or 6-24x50.  Thanks!

Cory, anything on tube length?  This will be going on a long action (Weatherby Mark V) so I need something with plenty of tube length!  Thanks!

ohh, your talking about ring spacing, sorry, cant help you out there, thats all i could find... since the actual scopes so long, i imagine it would fit on there without problems. chris might have some measurements for you.

The 4-16X50 Swarovski has 6 inches of available mounting space. With an overall tube length of 14.21"

The 6-24X50 Swarovski 7.25 inches of available mounting space. With an overall tube length of  15.43"

 

Which Zeiss are you looking at? Is that a new model for 2005 or something? The only Zeiss close to a 6-24X50 is a 6.5-20X50 and a 6-24X56.

 

We have two Weatherby Mark V's here. One is a .340 weatherby mag with a 4-16X50 PH on it. The other is a 7mm weatherby mag with a 2.5-10X42 PH. They're mounted with Talley rings and basses. Both setups have enough tube length.

Brady, I'm looking at the 6-24x56 Diavari with the reticle in the 2nd image plane.   I've noticed that scopes with the parallax adjustment on the end of the scope have to be mounted slightly higher than scopes with the pa positioned in the center of the tube.  What's your take on the glass between the Zeiss and the Swarovski's? 

George!

That scope has a tube length of 15.1 inches. With 6.5 inches of available mounting space. You would definitely need a super high ring with this scope. Scopes that have A/O's will be larger on the ends compared to the side focus. Between the Diavari and a Swarovski it would be a toss up I think. The Swarovski may have a slight edge but the difference would be unnoticeable. If I were to choose between the two I would get the cheapest. From the choices your looking at you cant go wrong.
