    Recommend me a variable

    Hi all.
    I am looking to buy a variable scope to be used for deer stalking.
    It is to be mounted on my R8.
    I would welcome advice on Khales csx and Schmidt zenith also Zeiss and swarovski.
    I would like it to have an illuminated ret.
    Comments very welcome

    I've got two zeniths with the FD7 ret and i think they take a lot of beating,not the lightest scopes around but built like the proverbial out house made for stalking excellent low light performance too,i have the 50 and the 56 but prefer the 50 to be honest.

    I have also newly purchased a S&B Zenith 3-12x50 FD7 and am very happy with it. As Dawnraider says heavy but well made. I have S&B and Zeiss scopes. What you need to work out is if you want a 30mm tube or a 1" tube. You wont go wrong with any of the top european brands, you just need to have a look at some and then decide.

    I have just put a Zeiss Victory 2.5-10x50 on my R93. It has the variable illumination with the auto-dim facility. I couldn't quite see the point of it until I was sat in the high-seat this morning. I have to say that the scope has impressed me almost as much as the Blaser.

    Good luck with whatever scope you decide on.

    O wad some Power the giftie gie us to see oursels as ithers see us!
