Does anyone have any experience with this scope. I am looking at one to put on top of a Rem 700 in .270.

I just got a ZA5 2-10x40 to go on my daughter's 7mm-08. I have it mounted on the rifle but have not shot it yet. Compared to the Nikon Monarch 3-12x42 I have on my 30-06, it looks clearer and brighter to me.

They are made in the same factory that ziess scopes are made.

I had 4 or 5 of them next to zeiss conquests and Nikon monarchs, they are not as sharp or bright as a conquest but they are a little sharper than a monarch, they gather light a little bit better than a monarch too.

Thanks. I have a 4.5-14X44 Conquest on my main hunting rifle but am looking for a decent scope that is a little less than the conquest for my "backup" This info helps

Definitely a good quality scope! If you watch, swfa sells the minox 3x9x40 for $199.00

Sorry, won't deal with SWFA again. Real bad experience. At the suggestion of others on here, I am getting my scopes from CameralandNY from now on. Great prices and awesome service
