A buddy has one thats never been mounted on a gun he'll sell to me for $500. I was wanting to buy a meopta meostar 3x12x56 illuminated RG reticle, but buying this zeiss will save me $500. Thoughts?

That is a good price but you're probably guaranteed high rings and it might be heavy or look stupid on some guns. It will for sure be very clear and bright to the eyes if I were to guess

I'd put it on my x bolt 7 mag which is a long gun so I think the big scope will look fine on it. Besides bow hunting 90 percent of my hunting is out of box stands in Mississippi with my 7 mag.

Zeiss conquest is very good in low light. It doesn't take much light to see. I run a 50 mm obj on my varmint gun and it's good.

have a 2.5X10X44 Conquest on one rifle, with it have shot yotes with just the light of a full moon. I prefer medium height scope mounts for the better cheek weld on the rifles I own and have never owned a scope that requires high rings for that reason.

The 56 will gather lots of light and that is a good price so like BIL said if you like it get it unless you just feel you need a lighted reticle.

I've never had a lighted reticle, but just liked it when I checked them out. I can wait on that though.

You can't beat that price for what your getting!!!!!. I have a 4.5x14x44 and just love it. At low light I would put it against anything except a Swaro I hunt Georgia, and Alabama I know what you want Especially when that old mossback sticks his head out at dark thirty. You will be able to count the ticks on his butt Now if you read this before you buy check EBAY. There you can compare pricing.

You might want to check out redhawk rifles. They have the zeiss conquest on clearance. $499 for the 4.5-14x50 for $499 brand new

I'd buy it in a heart beat. Great price on a great scope. If you don't want it let me know and I'll buy it from him.
