Thread: Scope durability rating

  1. #1

    Scope durability rating

    If you had to Rate S & B, SWAROVSKI, ZEISS & KAHLES IN ORDER OF ROBUSTNESS/DURABILITY How would you guys place them?

    Schmidt and bender at the top , no doubt in my mind . It's what most 1st world and NATO army's use on sniper rifles and thier durability is one reason they've been chosen by the us recently .

    However , the other brands are all top stalking scopes .
    just my opinion , I've handled them all but only actually own leupold and Schmidt and bender .

    Leupold MK4 would come first, S&B, then the rest about the same. Older steel tubed fixed magnification models being tougher than the newer alloy variables.
    Current battery, Air Arms TX200 MK3 .177, Hawke Vantage SF 3-12x40, Anschutz 1427B .22LR Sporterised Biathlon rifle, A-TEC wave mod Nikon 4.5-14x40, Tikka M595 .222Rem Leupold 6.5-20x40 LR.
