I have been looking at Leupold VX-2,Nikon Monarch, and Zeiss Conquest. What is the best scope under $400 did I leave one off the list? Looking for something 40mm or bigger the low needs to be no higher then 4 and top end I would like to be 9 power or higher.


PM me if u have something I need in East,TN

"looking at Leupold VX-2,Nikon Monarch, and Zeiss Conquest".
I'd say your on the right track with these. Might be able to pick up a used VX-III or VX-3 if your not in a hurry.

Good Luck,

VX3's are pretty sweet, there were 2 lightly used ones for sale on tndeer in the last week or so, one for $300 and the other for $325, I bought a new Zeiss on sale a couple of weeks ago at Cabelas.com for $279, no tax and free shipping........for that price you WILL NOT beat it!

That looks like a good deal although I haven't ever had a Minox. Do they compare to the Zeiss conquest?
