    Anyone use a Zeiss 2.5-8x32?

    As the title says, looking for some input for this scope on my 336.

    Re: Anyone use a Zeiss 2.5-8x32?

    I have only one Zeiss at this time, a 4X (German made top of the line) from about 1991-2. I bought two of them at the time and regrettably let one of them get away in a trade. The Conquest line is reportedly a great scope and the top of the line models are even better. I did buy a 10x40 binocular many years ago that had something misaligned in the interior and the dealer made it good without question. Only problem was getting a replacement in a timely manner and I ended up with Swarovski. But I digress. Zeiss puts out good stuff! I think you would really like the 2.5-8. Go for it. Good day, Jack

    This I-pad knows what I want to say and how to spell better than I do. Sometimes I catch it's mistakes, sometimes I don't.

    I sure don't see how you could go wrong with that scope. I only have one Zeiss, very good glass for sure. DP

    I own that scope and have it mounted on a M70 in '06. It's as good a scope as the other two Zeiss I own one 3-9x40 and the other a 1.8-5.5x38. The 2.5-8x32 Conquest is a bit bigger than the VariXIIs and Euro 30mm Leupold I own in 2-7x33, but it is a better scope.

    I'm sure you would be happy with it.

    Thanks for the response. I have been back and forth between the Zeiss and the 2-7 Leupold, but I like my Conquest 3-9 so much I wanted a Zeiss.

    It looks like my decision has been made for me though. I placed an order with Camerland Friday for the Zeiss 2.5-8 that they were receiving and I found out the order cannot be filled. Bummer

    I had gotten mine at an excellent close-out price a while ago. Sorry to hear you're not able to get one....

    I must have beat you to it, mine should be here tomorrow. Might have to buy another rifle to mount it on. Great being single.

    I thought that if I gave them billing information, I would be good to go. Left hand and right hand must not have met.

    Let me know if you want to sell it. I would pay a small premium.

    I've got two 3X9 Conquests, and they are great scopes. They're very clear and rugged, however, they are also very heavy to me. The Remmy 700s that they are mounted to are strictly "stand" rifles, nothing I'd care to walk around with for a while.
