    Minox ZV3 and za scopes

    anyone "used" one of these? as in not read a review, but actual used one? positives , negatives?

    the ZV's are their lower end i think and the ZA's better.

    Got a za5 2.5-10, very forgiving eyebox and no issues so far. Glass does the job, not a $3000 scope and as good or better as everything else at that price point. I compared it to a lot of different scopes and it holds its own...

    Had a ZA5 3-15x50. Glass was ok. Adjustments had a bit of backlash. Held its zero and zeroed ok but I wouldn't rely on using it for "dialing".

    Interesting... Seems the different models give different service and reliability. Never heard any issues with the 2.5x10's but have heard of guys having troubles with other sizes. For the money they are worth I think they go ok but aren't built like a nightforce etc. Rate them a lot higher than the Leupold versions but I've sent a few of them home to Mummy for cuddles. To be fair I've never dialled mine but never had an issue with backlash or adjustment slipping. Mag power changes don't throw zero out much either, which is nice.
