I've been playing with the new Minox ZA5 HD 2-10x50 30mm I bought earlier this year to put on a T3 260 - Talley Mediums fit perfectly, and after running a 3x9x40 Burris FFII on a CZ 550 9.3 for a long time, I do believe this Minox is a "Lil Red Riding Hood" kinda scope...Just Right. I think Doug at CameraLand still has these at under $350 from a $600 MSRP in the Demo-Open Box section. Glass is made in Wetzlar Germany, and the scope is assembled in California.
