Has anybody seen or had in hand a Minox Scope ?
I did'nt knew that they started producing riflescopes - lenses made in Germany, assembled in USA ? Maybe a product to compete with Zeiss Conquest and Leupold ?
I think Minox make good binoculars.

It's not the caliber of the rifle that matters - It's the caliber of the man behind it.

Minox makes great glass for the money, I have a couple sets of their bino's and have been very pleased- I would like see one of the scopes..
Seems I heard Leica owned Minox a few years ago

I'm a MInox fan, have a couple of their spotters. I believe cameralandny has specs & pics, but not sure they can be ordered just yet. I wouldn't hesitate trying one of the scopes, but if I remember correctly they didn't have either the size or an illuminated reticle which I prefer so I haven't pursued getting one just yet, Waidmannsheil, Dom.

A few months ago I was very interested in their ZP5 model with the THLR reticle but went another route, now I am interested in their MD 60 ZR spotting scope with the MSR2 reticle.
If I happen to get it down the line I will report back.

I own 2 MINOX scopes and very pleased. My son has one mounted on his 300 WSM. I also owned and sold (a mistake) a pair of 8x44 APO aspherical lense binoculars 5 years ago at New England Custom Gun, collecting dust on the shelf, sold as a demo. If I could find another pair I would buy them in a heart beat.

I have the Minox ZE 5i 3-18X56 with the BDC reticle. Very good glass, cross hairs are fine as frog hair, but that has not been an issue with the illuminated cross hairs. Has spare battery holder onboard. Have not done much practice with the BDC since I have it on my R8 22lr conversion. Got the scope as part of a Blaser package several years ago, If I had the chance to do it over, I would go forgo the BDC reticle. Overall I would rate the glass on par with the Leupold VX6. Manual says it is designed and assembled in Germany. I thought they were at some point associated with Blaser. Of course the dials are measured in centimeters.
