I'm looking at upgrading scopes on my Remington 700DM mountain rifle. It currently has a 3-9x40mm Nikon Buckmaster on it. Most shots will be late in the evenging so maximum light gathering ability is a must. I would also like to keep the scope as compact as possible because it is going on the mountain rifle. I have just about narrowed my choices down to the following, but feel free to throw in any more options. I'd like to keep the cost to $500 or less.

 

Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40

Zeiss Conquest 3.5-10x44

Nikon Monarch 3.3-10x44

Pentax Lightseeker 3-9x40

 

Thanks in advance and this is a great site!!!

zeiss is good glass, or look at a meopta meostar 50mm RI - great glass.

 

and don't forget elite 4200's - they are very clear/very bright. best value.

 

i don't have much experience w/ monarch's, and NO experience w/ the pentax.

 

good luck.

Thanks for the response. I just ordered me a new Zeiss Conquest 3-9x50 a few minutes ago. Got a great buy on it @ $425 shipped to my door.

Horsesandhorns I can tell you you are going to be very pleased. I bought a Zeiss Conquest 3-9X50 and it is very awesome in low light. At least the equal of my Zeiss Diavari 1.5-6X42 T* I think it is one of the best deals on the market for a high quality riflescope.
