thinking of changing up a few rifle set ups with at least one new scope and possibly two.

Thoughts on the Swarovski z3 4-12x50, Zeiss hd5 3-15x50 and Vortex viper 2.5-10x44.

That's a huge range
Swarovski is in a different universe than the other 2

What are you doing? Hunting? Tactical? There's lot's of great options. The Swaro Z3's are still on reduced price sale.
Give us a call, let's discuss what would be best.

Happy New Year

Thanks for the comment.

Hunting. Enjoy the range, but mostly hunting.

z3 or Zeiss for 30-06. I'm liking the current price for both and reason for the question. really like the z3.

understand the vortex is not in the same league as the others, but it would be an upgrade from current weaver on 7mm-08.

Is the z3 and hd5 being discontinued and priced for clearance or is the price going back up soon?

The Zeiss HD-5 was discontinued over this past Summer.
The Swarovski Z3 is not being discontinued and are just on sale at the moment. As a member here please feel free to give us a call and we can discuss your optics pricing with you

Go with z3 and do not look back, both my hunting 06's have them and they are superb.

See my post below: "Leupold VX-5HD 3-15x Great Deal Review". I don't think this is out of your price range. Myself and a few others are really pleased with this scope, for the $.

If you can get a good price on the Swaro and it’s in your budget, I’m not sure why you’d look elsewhere.
