Never used or looked through a Weaver but heard good things so I need some opinions.

Glass difference between the two ?

Any other distinct differences between the two?

How does the glass compare to Zeiss Conquest ?

  I can't give you a comparison between the two Weavers but I do have a Conquest (4x32) and a Grand Slam (4.75x40).  The Conquest is better in brightness and clarity with the Conquest being GREAT and the GS being VERY GOOD.  Both give a crisp image edge to edge.  Both have adjustments that track perfectly and hold their zero.  The Conquest wins hands down in the eye relief catagory.  GS's are very short in eye relief (I also have a 3-10x40 GS).  Both scopes are noncritical as far as head position is concerned.  In low light situations the Conquest is better but the GS does just fine although the image takes on a whiteish cast.  My 3-10x40 let me take a deer a few yrs back in a low light situation where I couldn't see the horns with the naked eye.
  I like both scopes but IF I had to choose only one to keep it would be the Conquest.

Which reticle do you have?
 
Right now it is a toss up between Conquest, Trijicon, and the SS for low light.
 
Trijicon - doesn't have enough internal adjustment, but love the illumination
 
Conquest- Seems like a good deal, just not sure which reticle to choose for low light.
 
SS- Seems like a great deal and could be used on my AR, .308 bolt, etc but not sure if it would be a good hunting scope.

 Both scopes have std duplex reticles.  The Conquest definitely wins in that dept.  It's the #20 Z-Plex.  It's etched,BLACK,and thick but not too thick.  For a std plex it works VERY GOOD in low light conditions.  The reticle in the GS is no better or worse than any other std one.
