Default Zeiss Conquest 6.5 x 20 x 50

Found a Zeiss Conquest 6.5 x 20 x 50 with target turrets Standard reticlal No. 20 but would rather have the rapid-Z.. New $849. Any other scope brand close to the clarity of this scope in that price range.

Just remember that the "conquest" line is the Ziess "economy" line. They're very good scopes, but they're not the legendary "true Zeiss."

The Conquest has good glass and is a great hunting scope.They don't have enough adjustment range for long range work using the turrets,that's why they came out with the Rapid-Z reticles. Those reticles get very busy if you are trying to really use them. If you are going to use the scope for ranges/targets of 500 yards or less,the Zeiss Conquest will be fine,but I'd still get a 20moa rail to keep the reticle close to center.
For other scopes in that price range that do have the ability to adjust for longer ranges,look at the Sightron SIII or the Vortex Viper PST. The Sightron's glass is as good as the Conquest,the Viper PST's isn't as clear.
The Viper PST does have a few features that Sightron doesn't offer,but I prefer the Sightron SIII in the $750-1000 priced scopes. I have 5 of the Sightrons,so I'm kinda partial to them.

If you decide to get a Sightron or Vortex scope,PM me and I'll give you a link to a place that sells them at some of the lowest prices available.

why not just get the scope you listed? Zeiss is VERY worth it.

Another scope? Might think about a Weaver Super Slam 4-20x50. Have one and also the 3-15x42 Super Slam. Their pull up turrets are nice and right on when adjusting for windage/elevation....have side focus for parallax. As to optics quality of the Super Slams, I'd rate the glass very comparable to a Zeiss Conquest.

Second time I had one of my Super Slams at range, gent shows up with a new rifle with a new Zeiss Conquest scope on it. Both of our scopes had pretty much the same magnification range. Asked the Zeiss owner, who buys only top notch scopes for his rifles, has a nightforce for example, to sit down with my Weaver Super Slam scoped rifle and tell me how it compared to his Zeiss. Long story short, after spending 4 or so minutes playing with my scope and viewing my target downrange there was nothing about my Super Slam he considered inferior to his Zeiss......matter of fact, he liked my reticle better than one in his Zeiss.

You should be able to buy a 4-20x50 Super Slam for a couple of hundred dollars less than the Zeiss you mentioned. Check Natchez Shooters Supply.
