I thought I had made my final decision, but alas. . .one more ? for all the experts out there.

My Rifle:  Rem 700 in .270

My Use:  NC Deer hunting--low light out to 300yds at times but rare

 

Two options:

Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 1" Plex

Kahles American Hunter 3-9x44 1" Plex

 

Looks on the rifle is a very minor concern.

If the price is say within 20 bucks (so no real difference) which would you choose?  I believe either would be a great choice, but I need some help tipping the scales in one direction or the other.

Thanks!

Hugo

I say Conquest because I was so fond of mine.

Honestly, either one would be very serviceable for you.

 

No wrong choice.

Check out www.SampleList.com

 

You can get a demo 3-10X42 Swarovski, which would make even a better choice.

I've thought about a Swaro. . .but offering only a 15 year warranty when it seems the industry standard is lifetime turns me off on principle.  Even my crummy Simmons was replaced for postage-n-handling without questions.  And the Kahles I've spotted is on the SampleList ;-)

NC-

 

I agree with you 100% on the warranty issue. Simmons will even have the scope returned to you in 3-4 days of receipt.

 

just my 2cents.
