    Hi there.
    You could keep your eye open for a second hand Night Force but they are still a bit pricey.
    Still they seem popular in foxing world.
    Best of luck.

    no one in the uk sells the zeiss conquest, as for a night force scope, i have had 2 and found them oribil monsters under the lamp they are like looking down a furred up drainpipe IMO,

    conquest with the rapid z ret or just the plain plex ret, the 4.5/14x44 or 50mm will do you well out past 250 yards in daylight, and about 200 max at night with a good lamp set up.

    or the bigger 6.5/20x50 if you need to go longer in the daylight.

    4.5-14x44 is the scope i wanted but finding one is the hard bit no one has them the larger one would be alright but finding one of these the right money is just as hard

    i was offered 550 for my 6.5/20x50 rapid z conquest but its still sat on my 20 tactical. to me its worth a good bit more, and the 4.5/14x44 or 50 is a cracking we scope i have one on my 243 and my 17hmr.

    Don't overlook the Meopta's, been using an R1R 3-12x56 IR for Foxing for a while now, awesome bit of glass and imo certainly better than its Zeiss Conquest equivalent.

    Sounds like the Meopta is worth a look.
