    lol I agree. If you need someting with that power it's a great deal.


    What are you looking to do with the scope? Hunting, sniper rifle, target shooting? What ranges, cal etc. That will tell us more.

    3.Special Operations Forces cannot be mass produced.

    4.Competent Special Operations Forces cannot be created after emergencies occur.

    Unless it has to be typical tactical scope, Zeiss Conquest is a lot of scope for the money, from what I hear.

    Not heard one bad word about it. Ever.

    Kamatz' Zeiss recomendation is a very good one.

    As is:

    Leupold Mk4 PR 4.5-14x40mm
    Leupold Mk4 PR 3.5-10x40mm
    Burris Black Diamond scopes
    Burris XTR's should be fantastic also.
    Nikon Monarchs and tacticals (A little above the budget for the tactical)

    Let me know if you want some SC pricing on any of the above... we can get them all

    Since the price was set at $600, I did not include the super sniper scopes, they are not as good as any of the scope I listed above. The Xotic scopes are above that $600 (the last I checked).

    Leupold
    Mk4 PR 4.5-14x40mm
    duplex - $606
    mildots - $682

    Mk4 PR 3.5-10x40mm
    duplex - $525
    mildots - $601

    Midway has the leupold VXIII 4.5x14x50 M1 (duplex) for $629 - retails for $839

    has the 3.5x10x40 M3 for $599 - retails for $799

    edit: let me know if you want the link it is a eblast newsletter.

    And if you order both the shipping is $8.73 (ask me how I know :wink: )
