See camera land has minox for a good price. Just bought my nephew a youth 243 and wanted a decent scope that cAn handle the occasional bump from a 10 year old and hold zero. In same range I'd be looking at low end nikpns and low end vortex. Recommend one over the other?

Just picked up a AR and HR 243 for myself that'll need glass shortly so kind of interested also for those

I purchased a Minox from Cameraland several months ago. The price was good and I wanted to try them out. Mine is the 3-15X50. Have it on a Tikka 7-08. So far I like it. Good optics and have had no issues with it tracking. Very clear. I do not regret getting it.

I have a ZP5 and a ZX5, and both are excellent. Don't hesitate.


p.s. If you're interested, my ZX5 is actually for sale for a pretty great price because I want another ZP5.

Just purchased one myself. Haven't gotten it out in the field quite yet so I may not be much help but just looking through it, I think Im going to like it quite a bit. I got the ZX 3-9 x 50mm. Everyone I have talked to about them seem to rave about them. 2cents

I actually have four Minox scopes. They seem to be a good balue for the price (especially what Doug has them for now). Tryiing to slowly upgrade optics a bit, and these were at least a step up optically. Time will tell on internals.

I'll take the Minox over any Nikon or Vortex costing twice as much.

Used one before. Zero complaints. I've read they are hit and miss but everyone of them I've seen or been around was good.

The glass on the ZV actually seems as good as the ZA, but coatings seem to be different. Adjustments are crisper on ZA, but as I do not twist turrets (sight it in and leave it), I have not had any problems with the ZV scopes. I can tell you that the ZV line is made/assembled overseas, while the Za is assembled in Usa.
