Ok guys. What is your favorite scope that YOU own? Doesn't matter if it for hunting, paper punching, killing zombies or whatever. If you'd like to give your reason why you may. I think this will be interesting.---Bboy623 Big Grin

I'll start with a vote for the Zeiss Conquest. It's the nicest scope I own and I got it for Christmas last year. It's mounted on my Browning BAR .270 and I'm anxious to get a whitetail with it this year!!--Bboy623

"Zeiss - other" = Hensoldt.  Yep, that's my vote.

If you don't love Hensoldt, you either A. have never seen a Hensoldt or B. work for leupold.

yea yea yea....so I missed a few. It took me awhile to get the poll as it is as it is habit to press "Enter" to go to the next line when that actually posts the thread. So after 2 deletes I finally got it.


On a side note (hoping that this will change THIS season), I almost voted for Bushnell other ( for me a 3-9 Bush Trophy) as it got me a 7 pointer--my biggest deer. Big Grin


...and no, I've never seen a Hendsolt. LOL

If I ever win the lottery, I'll get me a Swarvoski!! So the Conquest will have to do----Bboy623

+1  !!!!

I really like Meopta!! I haven't had a chance to see them side by side with a Zeiss...but I think the Meopta is clearer ..if that's possible.

I know from reading on here that Meopta does the glass for some Zeiss products...but I'm wondering if they put an extra coating or extra polishing on THEIR lenses.

That's another company I should have added---Bboy623

if you are in fact ordering those three scopes you will forget about leupold very quickly.

Don't sweat it, your vx-3 is no slouch... though your opinion may change if you order one of the three you listed.  Big Smile

How to decide?  My favorite changes depending on the hunting I am doing, but I have to say, I really really like my SS 3-9.

Well, I enjoy hunting, tactical, and long range shooting. I own several scopes from several manufacturers. I like my Viper and my Conquest. I like my SSs as well. However, my favorite is my Leupy MK4 6.5-20X50. It is tough and precise. It is also an excellent optical performer, despite many harsh reviews I have read about the line online. I do NOT own a Hensoldt, but I would like to.

My #1 scope without a doubt is Premier 3-15X50 Gen2 XR, It is extremely clear, always holds and returns to zero, Built damn tough and I love the turret design.

I don't have any really expensive scopes, but the one the I like the best is my Nikon Team Primos.  My Zeiss conquest looks to have better glass, but I haven't had a chance to use it much yet.  I've been able to use my Team Primos on both elk and a black bear.  Big Smile

S&B 1.5-6X42 Zenith #9 w/ Flash Dot by a nose over a few other favorites.  An incredible scope.

But, I have several other scopes I also love right up there with the S&B, so that's likely to change periodically depending on which one I'm using at the time.
