Question to couple of you arguing the Conquest vs. Z3, have you actually ever compared them?
I have never owned a z3 looked through several shot a few owned by friends on a pd towns.
IMO the z3 seems to me a better scope and value than a Conquest.
The Z3 ~ is lighter /more compact ~ does not have plastic turret caps ~ a dial option ~ better fit and finish ~ better resale ~ simpler reticle ~ from what I understand better CS\warranty ~ I am told better glass.
These things more than make up for $100+ difference.
The op asked which of these two would you buy/pick??
IMO the price payed for a Conquest is a bit steep for what I received.
I never said/thought a Conquest as being nothing less than a good scope just... there are better valued scopes available. Again, the op listed two scopes conquest and z3 asking the thoughts/opinions of the forum.
