    Zeiss conquest 3-9x40 Any good?

    Are these scopes any good?

    Are the Terra models better?

    Cheers

    The Conquest 3-9x40 is a better scope than the Terra.

    I have one - now on Brno .22
    Only complaint - the diopter does not + enough "for me"
    Had it on a 308 H&K semi and appeared to handle that well - although I only shot 3 Deer with it.
    They are in the "Budget" Euro Scope level - but I would still have one over a VXII Leopold (never had a VXIII)

    Before you Leopi guys advance - I have the the VX-R 1.25-4 x 20 now - and loving it !!!

    Yeah they're mint for the money. Don't gett a terra.

    I swapped my conquest for a kahles. Wish I hadn't now.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    They're Asian built to reduce costs and were essentially to replace the Conquest line which was proving very popular world wide.

    Vx3 superior to terra IMO. Owned both. For the money of a normal terra could get a vx3 or a real nice vortex and both are superior scopes.

    Put a VX3 1.5 x 5 x19 (not 20 -19 is whats on the box) on my 416rem 20 years ago. Great little scope and would be fantastic on a little bush gun
