Booradlry or anyone else have experience with Minox? Don't know much about them. Good in low light? Durable?

Yes, to me optical quality is VX-2ish in normal light, in low light they are better than a VX-2 to my eyes. To me, as general rule scopes of European origin tend to be really good in low light. Maybe because it is legal to hunt big game at night in most of Europe. I sways buy from Camera Land if they carry what I am looking for, even if the price is somewhat higher than what I can get it for somewhere else. Their prices are usually in line with the lowest I find elsewhere on the net. The reason for my loyalty is the phenomenal service I've always received. It is spectacular. Call and talk to Doug the owner about the Minox or his assistant Neil. They will shoot straight with you.

I think that would be a damn good choice for a scope in that price range...and boo's steerin you right on optical quality, too. I'll take a 1.5-6x with high-quality glass over a 4-12x with second rate glass any day of the week.

Went ahead and bought the Minox 3-9 × 50 BDC last night for $150. Seems to be solid quality but will post again when I get my hands on it. Thanks for the help THF.
