As the title says, looking for some input for this scope on my 336.
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.
I beleive Cameraland received a few of the 4x32 if you are interested.

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 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.
