Supposedly have the same glass as Zeiss Conquest, designed in Germany, assembled in the US, Lifetime Warranty. BUT, my friend bought 2 and on one the side focus grinds when you turn it and on 12X-15X it is blurry. Maybe he got a lemon but it is bad enough I will never buy one. He does need to send it in though and see if they give him a new one.

I have a 3-9x40 mounted on an AR. Quality glass and also has a no-fault warranty since I registered it online with Minox. I break it, they fix it, no questions.

No complaints...so far. I would buy with confidence. Look for a demo special at Cameraland.

I have a 3-15x50 I got from SWFA on my 7mag, great scope. Would not hesitate to buy another. I like it better than my Leupold VX-3

I have a 3-15x50 and it is quality German glass for a lot less money. Only knock is that it is a short scope, so make sure there is enough adjustment on your mounting system to get proper eye relief.

I have a ZA5 2-10x40 on a 25-06. So far, so good. The glass is REALLY good! My only knock is that the magnification seems like it may not be true. Not a big deal for me, but the magnification does "look" a little different than other scopes. I believe that it was $229 through SampleList. Definitely a lot of scope for the money.

These guys have a lot of Minox. Not sure where you would find them locally.

Unless things have changed dramatically in the past couple of months they don't have German glass. They say engineered in Germany, assembled in USA. The glass was from China as were the other parts.
I haven't looked at them in a while but before I bought into the whole USA Germany deal I would read closer.

Have had one of the ZA5 3X15 for several years. Could send it back for some roll off at the edges which a lot of people did with them but the glass is clear and it tracks well for a box test. Got it at Cameraland I guess about 4 years ago on a demo special and it came with some of their lower end Binos.

The binos when using in the Summer heat drag on adjustment but they work fine most of the year, it is just tight on the rubber coating.

The Z5 I have is for sure a short scope and glad I wanted to put it on a short action since I am not sure it would fit on a long action without getting offset rings. Put it on a Rem 700 in 7mm-08 and have not touched the adjustments since and they are still on when I checked it this season.

I have mine mounted on my 7 m Brno. The 4 inch eye relief helps to make up for the lack of length.
