Looking at a used burris signature select 3-12x44 or a burris fullfield II 4.5-14X42. The only thing that i dont like about the looks of the fullfield is an AO. What is better scope?

Not all Signature select have the posi-lock It was only on certain models. The Signature Select will have better lens coatings on every lens surface. A new Signature Select is a definite step up in quality from the FullField ll.

Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

I would go with the Sig Sel myself.

You Gents with the Signature Selects...how does the glass compare to a Zeiss Conquest?  Particularly in low light?

Signature select here too. Cant tell you how it compares to the conquest, but I can tell you it is an awesome scope and outstanding in low light, IMO.

I just sold at a huge loss a brand new FFII, just to get rid of it.  On 3X in low light it was unusable.  I consistently lost 10+ minutes of legal light before I could see the reticle.  In bright light, its contrast was so poor, I could not find deer clearly visible to the naked eye.

Maybe you got a bad one as this is the total opposite of the experience I've had with a FFII.

A few years back I compared a FFII 4.5-14x42 with a 3-9x40 and the clarity and all were pretty close but the light gathering of the 4.4-14 was far...far better than the 3-9.

In my opinion the Burris 3-10x40 Signature Select compares very favorably with the Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40.  When I was looking for a scope for my 30-06 it came down to the Burris 3-10x40 Signature Select and the Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 and I picked the Burris.

did you pay more than $400 for the burris? just wondering as i could probably never go with a burris over a zeiss if prices are identical just from namesake alone.

Wonder how the Burris Signature Select, Bushnell Elite 4200 compare to the Zeiss Conquest and to each other?

I will buy a Zeiss...but I will also easily purchase a Burris if the glass is better - both dependable and the Zeiss gets great reviews as well as does Burris but for the money, a Signature Select would have to be better for me to pay $80 more for the Burris than the Zeiss.

If the Zeiss is worse than the Burris (I am mainly concerned with low light)...then, I couldn't justify it on name alone.

I just know these conquest guys are almost fanatical about their liking for those scopes.  Every forum I have looked it is always the same.  They love them.  I have been looking to replace a Burris ff 4.5 -14 that is driving me nuts and just have to make the trip to cabelas to look at the conquest4.5-14.  Thinkin about that and a 6500 2.5-16 and the Leu VX3  4.5-14.  So what is it with these Conquests that makes you guys gush???
